Maanta Product Selection Guide

In this section you will find all the necessary information and practical guides for choosing Maanta products: from shade sails to roller shades!

The first step when buying a shade sail is to choose the fabric, but sometimes it can be a real dilemma! Waterproof or breathable? Can't decide? In our fabric guide you will find all the features and advantages of our 4 Maanta fabrics.

Once you have chosen your fabric, it is important to understand how to measure correctly! Choosing your sail size is easy! Let's start with a fundamental concept: shade sails need to be anchored at every angle. Between the anchor point and the stainless steel ring on the corner of the sail we must place a means of tension, the minimum dimension of which is 35cm. There should be a maximum of one metre between the sail and the anchor. We must therefore remain within a minimum tolerance of 70cm and a maximum of 2 metres.
Here you will find all the information on how to take the measurements correctly.

You can then choose between shade sails in standard sizes, or you can configure your own sail with the practical online configurator. In a few simple steps you will receive a free personalised quote. Find out more by clicking here.


If, on the other hand, you are looking for a smart and convenient solution for covering your balcony, Maanta roller shades are what you are looking for. Discover how to create a quality screen thanks to our extremely resistant and high-performance fabrics. On this page you will find all the information, guides and instructions you need to make your very own roller shade. Maanta roller shades are a product that adapts to every season: they allow you to shade in style in summer thanks to the Braid5 fabric, or to hermetically insulate your balcony in winter with the transparent PVC film Clear fabric. Click here to access the guide to fabrics for roller shades.
