Mesh Shade Sails are an excellent contemporary way of achieving shade & protection from harmful UV rays. Sails reduce heat build up and air conditioning costs in internal applications. World class high tech tensile PVC fabrics formed into 2d and 3D shapes create weather proof canopies for uses including alfresco dining , performing arts , play areas , work spaces and social gatherings. Customers include Private homes, Schools , Hospitality Industry, Commercial workplaces, and all types of organisations.  Shade sails have many internal applications in offices , shopping centres , and  buildings with glass curtain walling. They are very useful for theming events , and camouflaging unsightly building elements.

Installed as stand alone structures or connected to existing buildings our sail arrangements are all bespoke . We utilise a wide range of elements  to form each installation.  We design and fabricate marine grade stainless steel brackets , posts & fittings. We also include laminated varnished timber , Oak , galvanised and powered coated mild steel in our sail structures.

Take a look at our sail gallery for examples of our work ranging from simple garden sails to multiple internal & external commercial solutions.

Our sails are manufactured by highly experienced UK sail makers which specialise in bespoke textile fabrication and custom fabric structures . The process involves 2D & 3D design and patterning , CAD fabric cutting , welding and incomparable stitching techniques. Our sails are designed to last.
