Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  1. Why fabric shade structures give better benefits than canvas, wood, GRP, metal shade systems?

Normally, other types of shading system like wooden pergolas or gazebos requires a lot of maintenance works such as repainting on a regular basis, Canvas shade on the other hand will consume time for cleaning since we need to dry them off after washing, while metal and GRP shade system locks in heat especially during daytime given that it absorbs a lot of heat. Aesthetically, these types of shading systems provide squared and very limited shapes that are all common in all other structures.

Fabric shades gives you the benefit of cozy and breathable shade (HDPE-High Density Polyethylene Fabric) experience  because it reflects back heat absorption and blocks from 92%- 99% UV rays depending on its various colors available. It is easy to maintain, washable with tap water and detergent not but not that often. Our other fabric product, (PVC – Polyvinyl Chloride Fabric), also maximizes heat protection and at the same time flame retardant that ensures the safety for all. Generally, fabric shades looks better than any other shading system as it takes various shapes and forms that anyone can imagine.

  1. Why to choose Bait Al Nokhada for my shade needs?

Bait Al Nokhada has been in operation for morethan 17 years providing maximum satisfaction to each and every client that we deal with. Enquiries from our valued clients will be evaluated, checked and inspected thru actual site visits if necessary and accordingly create a concept proposal to client through drawing with corresponding value in UAE Dirham, which serves as our sales quotation.Shade Structures are pre designed before its construction, to ensure its stability and safety. According to its approved designs, it will be then implemented on fabrication and installation supervised by the expertise of our qualified professionals to ensure its quality.

  1. Are the Fabrics Waterproof ? Fire Retardant?

Yes, (For PVC Fabric Only) we used waterproofed fabric in a sense that it can be washed and dries up automatically consuming less time. It is flame retardant where the fabric won’t drip and self extinguishes in less than a minute when it catches fire. In the case of HDPE Fabric, although water goes through it, still it can be classified as waterproofed since it is a non porous material, it does not absorb water unlike that canvas fabric. It can be washed and dry easily as well.

  1. If needed, can this fabric be easily removed for repair or cleaning?

Yes, these fabrics are fixed with fixing accessories that are temporarily attached to a steel member, so that if its time to remove it, fabric can be detached from the frameworks without even damaging it.

  1. How long do the Shade Fabrics last?

We give 10-20 year warranty for the fabric and guaranteed to last that long.

  1. How are Shade Structures anchored?

Normally, shade structures are fixed and stabilized with pre designed RC foundations; otherwise it will be anchored with chemical bolts if RC slab /structure is present. This also applies with RC walls and beams for sail shades.

  1. Can Bait Al Nokhada help me with everything from design to installation?

Yes, our qualified executives will assist you from shade proposals to fabrications, and installation.
