Garden Shade Sails

Shade Sails are an excellent contemporary way of achieving shade & protection from harmful UV rays. Mesh fabric sails allow rain water to pass through them and can be installed flat / horizontal to maximise cover. view of garden from a terrace covered by a garden shade sail, cool alfresco lifestyle

World class high tech tensile solid 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. 



Rain and shade sails may be 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.  Choose from laminated varnished timber, Oak, Hardwoods, galvanised and powdered coated mild steel for the sail posts and super structure.

Interior Shade Sails

Sails may be used to create internal shading when installed just outside a building. They can also be fitted inside a conservatory or any glazed building to reduce heat build up and air conditioning costs, see our conservatory shade sails page. Sails for shading 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.
