Solaria is our best breathable shade sail, made in Italy with the very strong Meshnet HDPE 320 g/sqm fabric. Its main features are - Radial cut - Meshnet HDPE fabric 320 grams - Digital stitching - Stainless steel ring plates - Made in Italy ..
It optimally protects from UV rays (UPF50 +), sun and wind up to 65 km / h.
The radial cut invented in 1983 by sails designer Tom Schnackenberg introduced a revolution in terms of fiber orientation and therefore cutting as well as sewing. Thanks to this type of processing we have sails that are more resistant to the wind, with greater resistance even over time thanks to the more uniform tension and distribution of loads.
Thanks to modern technologies, we are able to make extremely precise cuts and seams, obtaining a sail that can be stretched in a better way, thus helping the flow of water and wind resistance.
Extreme strength is also ensured in the seams made with highly technical thread and with a sewing machine designed for large sails.
It is equipped with multilayer reinforcements and special steel ring plates at each corner.
Available to measure directly from our configurator but also in 15 standard sizes.
Extremely robust Meshnet HDPE 320 gr / sqm, ensures incredible durability, perfect elasticity, 40% water drainage, insulation and heat shield
The Muscle x3 kit is the best wall anchor on the market because allows you to stretch any shade sail with great ease.
Two-tone beach bag with orange inserts and green and blue details, comfortable fabric handles, top zip closure.
Carabiner in mirror-polished steel, without eye, with stainless steel spring for shade sails.
Alu-Simple aluminum shade pole is the first technical pole ever developed for shade sails.
Solaria HDPE represents the maximum desirable from a breathable shade sail . It is made with a virgin Meshnet HDPE 320 fabric: this allows better resistance over time and ensures greater tenacity of the fibers compared to a recycled one.
The large specific weight of 320 g/m² allows for two major advantages compared to the economic version of 180 g / m²: greater shade and therefore greater thermal insulation as well as a higher water runoff (about 40%).
The Meshnet HDPE 320 microperforated fabric still allows the heat to vent upwards but this is undoubtedly the right sail when our main enemy is the sultry heat! It is also resistant to both abrasion (10,000 cycles certified by the ASTM D4966 test) and linear traction.
The radial cut invented in 1983 by sails designer Tom Schnackenberg introduced a revolution in terms of fiber orientation and therefore cutting and sewing. It is certainly a much more laborious cut that involves working through many loops: however, it will be this richness that will allow a correct and uniform distribution of tension (through small 'vectors' of force present on each sleeve).
We will thus have sails more resistant to the wind , which even out the tension load, especially in the central part of the sail, i.e. the part where the fabric usually remains loose, exposing itself more to gusts of air . If you want to know more about the radial cut, we advise you to consult this specific in-depth analysis!
For correct tensioning we recommend installing anchors equipped with Maanta pulleys as well as the jack kit or the Muscle x3 multiplier.
The combination of radial cut, very strong 320 gr / m2 fabric and other construction technologies gives life to Solaria HDPE, our best breathable shade..

Extremely robust Meshnet HDPE 320g / m² fabric, resistant to traction and tension, maximum color resistance, UV protection 50+, allows hot air to vent upwards and ensures a great heat shield thanks to the thickness of the fabric itself
Digital fabric cutting, automatic sewing, top quality components, multilayer reinforcements
Thanks to this type of production we have a sail that is more resistant to the wind, with a more uniform tension distribution, able to resist more over time and drain the water better and with a longer guarantee (Maanta offers 4 years of warranty on this product)
Easily adaptable to any area to be covered with standard sizes up to 42 square meters and the possibility of custom size orders with any shapes and sizes
The radial cut allows to obtain performances not comparable to the straight cut. Our digital technology allows for unparalleled accuracy and speed. The result is absolute constructive precision
The semi-automatic seams combined with a technical thread allow for excellent strength
The multilayer reinforcements in addition to strengthening the corners allow the tension to spread uniformly
The tension can be developed with special pulleys and force multipliers such as those present on our Muscle Kits and on our Ulisse and Alu-Simple poles
This type of construction is usually used on racing boats to obtain better performance. The many cuts and seams allow a better distribution of the force applied on the corners and will give us a better taut sail, which will fight more efficiently against the wind, drain the water better, last longer.
A very sturdy fabric, with great color persistence and excellent mechanical qualities.
The thickness of the Meshnet HDPE 320gr fabric will allow you to create a real heat shield on sultry days: it will develop excellent shading, stopping the heat coming from the sun's rays but at the same time allowing the underlying heat to quickly vent towards the high
Thanks to the automated and digital cutting we are able to be extremely precise in the processing of panels and reinforcements, designed by computer. This absolute precision turns into a better finished product
Thanks to the semi-automatic sewing system and a careful selection of high quality yarns, we will obtain sturdy seams over time and suitable for being put under tension
One of the most stressful points of sail awnings are certainly the corners: we reinforce them with different layers of fabric that strengthen and stiffen, helping a correct propagation of force and embellishing the product
All processes are managed within our headquarters equipped with digital systems and qualified personnel. Each product is handcrafted but with advanced technologies. The quality control is strict
We use marine grade 316 stainless steel plates for all of our sails.
The innovative tensioning system with perimetrable reinforcement straps, individually adjustable, allows a uniform distribution of tension over the entire surface of the sail.
4 carefully selected shades for an optimal match in every situation.
Shade sails of superior quality , I previously bought from competing brands but nothing to do with Maanta sails.
Recommended, 5 deserved stars

Better assistance than Amazon , very kind and helpful.
Exceptional quality and design for both poles and curtains.
The first test against the wind showed the clear superiority between the 4x5 purchased and that of another brand that we mounted previously.
The curtain lets the wind pass without any problem.
Mounted here on Mount Etna it also faced its first rain of volcanic ash without any damage .

Excellent consistency of the sail , wind resistance (caught a strong storm without consequences) and comfortable attachment rings of the ropes .
The only negative note is a slight imperfection in the stitching but which has not given problems up to now .
