Grades of stainless steel

Commercial Shade Sails sells only the finest quality hardware. All of our products have been tested to meet Australian standards. This means they have been tested for their sturdy ability to withstand breaking loads.

They have also been manufactured in the highest quality stainless steel for industrial use. There are two such preferred grades, 304 and 316, both of which are resistant to corrosion, are electropolished for an enhanced surface finish, and versatile in their applications:

  • 304-grade stainless steel is the most common grade and a good general purpose stainless steel.
  • 316-grade is knowns as “marine grade”, as it contains molybdenum to resist the corrosive effects of salt (NaCl) in seawater. It is the best choice if your business or organisation is located near the coast. Although not completely rust-proof, its alloy is even more resistant to corrosion than other common stainless steels.

Almost all of Commercial Shade Sails stainless steel hardware fittings are manufactured in 316 or marine grade.

Turnbuckles are used to adjust the tension of your shade sail when you install it or to give it a little extra length. It is always best to use your turnbuckle at its greatest length for the best tensioning.

Pad eyes and wall plates

Pad eyes and wall plates are designed to anchor into brick walls for a secure fixing point over individual bricks. Larger sizes can spread the weight-bearing load over a wider area and are therefore better for sails that are larger or heavier. We offer a range of pad eyes and wall plates for many shade sail applications.
