It's a system of sun protection that combines design with functionality, as it allows us to obtain a protected space of the sun with an original design, exclusive and elegant.

The fixing of the stretched sail awnings varies depending on the shape and the place where they are to be installed. It can be attached to the wall or ceiling, or by posts anchored to the floor.

These extend over our garden thanks to a winding tube powered by a motor. They are very easy to handle and your sails can be deployed very quickly.
