Have been a keen follower of the forum for a while but this is my first post. Itís a great resource so thanks to everyone involved.
I am looking to put up a couple of shade sails for the rear veranda that gets the morning sun. At this point in planning it looks like I will use two sails approx 3m (not quite) x 4m each.
I have attached some photos of the set up I am imagining including proposed attachment points on the facia side. I'm going for the cheapest option and am really interested in your input on the strength of the facia attachment points I am suggesting. We do not experience above normal wind patterns where I am in Brisbane, but like anywhere, now and again she rips through in the big storms.
I plan for one attachment point to be bolted onto 2 lots of 4' x 2' timber behind the facia (marked with blue dot). Due to the separation needed between the two sails where they overlap in the centre of the veranda the second sail attachment point (marked with a red dot) can only be bolted onto 1 section of 4' x 2' timber. Not sure if these attachment points will suffice? Appreciate any feedback.
Thanks a lot,
