Shade sails are artistic canopies that provide sun shade and UV protection for playgrounds, swimming pools, backyard patios, and other outdoor living spaces. They offer not only escape from the sun but creative displays for anything from a backyard pool to a rooftop restaurant. We use high quality shade fabric to manufacture standard and custom shade sails in the United States and distributes them worldwide. All of our standard sail shade sizes and shade products are available for direct purchase by phone or through this website. Contact us to find out how you can work with one of our project managers to help you design a custom shade product to fit your space perfectly.
Shade Sail Design
The inward curves along the sides of each shade fabric panel are indicative of shade sails and are engineered to help evenly spread and distribute the tension placed at each connection point through the entire sail. This prevents the concentration of tension at the corners, which reduces the risk of tear and makes our shade sails durable and long lasting. The result is sail shaped sunshade capable of providing functional shade in an iconic architectural form.
Like our shade sail products our roman shades also provide artistic and functional shade from the sun. Unlike our shade sails, the roman shades are suspended from two parallel cables. They provide a more traditional shading experience and are capable of opening and closing to create a more transitional space. They can block the heat of the sun or be drawn back to let its warmth through. Romans are a great addition to other patio sun shade products like pergolas.
In addition to roman shades, shade panels are excellent ways to utilize already existing structures to provide protection from the sun. With three easy installation methods, shade panels are a quick, yet sturdy way to turn a pergola into an effective shade structure. As with our shade sails and roman shades, shade panels, too, can be custom designed for your individual needs. Whether in a baseball dugout or over a backyard barbecue, our shade panels provide fantastic shelter from the heat of the sun.

Shading and UVR
Our shade sails, roman shades and other shading products provide between 91% and 99% UVR blockage. The shade provided can lower ambient air temperature beneath the sail upwards of 10 to 15 degrees fahrenheit. Additionally, because the shade fabric is breathable, it will not trap the heat beneath. Instead, our shade sails and roman shade products create an open and cool transitional space.
