Differences between stretched sails and conventional awnings

Stretched sails are a very elegant alternative if you do not want to install a conventional awning.

Sailing awnings are one of the most modern sun protection solutions for the decoration of terraces, balconies, patios, swimming pools, garages, all kinds of businesses, sports spaces etc. Light as a sail, but robust at the same time, it protects against harmful UV rays and heat.


The biggest difference of this system with a conventional awning is that it can be installed in small, narrow spaces or in open spaces. It is not necessary to have a wall to fix it. In the case of having the possibility of hanging it to a wall, it is also possible to do it, but if there is not, it can be done through masts of steel, aluminum or even wood.

Variety of shapes and colors.

The other big difference with respect to conventional awnings is that the shade sails can have a diversity of shapes and colors, being able to design to measure to optimize the sun protection in a certain space.

Custom shade.

Every need is unique, and every space is as well. That's why the biggest difference between a conventional awning and a stretched sail is that with the sail stretched we can design a shade to measure, while giving our terrace or patio a touch of distinction and modernity.
