Bespoke shade sails manufacturing in the UK

Birmingham is the UK’s 2nd biggest city and like much of England is subjected to all types of weather including rain, wind, snow and sun. Considering the weather, many residential and commercial establishments underestimate the importance of providing proper shading - but the truth is, up to 80% of the sun’s UV rays can pass through clouds, meaning that additional protection is still needed.

What are the benefits of custom shade sails?

1. UV protection of up to 99%

Sunburn, eye damage, premature ageing and skin cancer are just some of the harmful effects caused by prolonged exposure to UV rays. While a healthy dose of Vitamin D is great, it is easy to forget about the long-term harm when playing or relaxing for hours under the sun without sunscreen and proper shading protection. 

Made from high-quality materials, our custom shade sails block up to 99% of UV and UVB rays, offering optimal shielding from the sun’s powerful radiation, which can persist even if it’s not sunny outside. You can choose between a wider variety of materials, styles and colours for your custom shade sails in Birmingham. 

2. Cost-effective solution

Shading an outdoor area can be expensive if you are looking at traditional solid structures like awnings and permanent roofs. They not only require more materials, but are often not the best solution for covering large or irregular areas due to their lack of flexibility.

On another hand, custom shade sails are incredibly versatile, and can be designed to fit virtually any outdoor space, regardless of its size or shape. Compared to permanent structures, they are lightweight and easy to install, making them a more cost-effective solution, plus you enjoy a shorter installation time.

In addition, they also help businesses reduce operational expenses by reducing the amount of heat that penetrates water bodies such as lakes and swimming pools, lowering the water evaporation rate. 

3. High durability

Installing custom shade sails not only enhances the aesthetic value of an outdoor area, but they are also a highly durable solution for shading it over a long period of time. Depending on the chosen materials, they have warranties between 5 and 15 years, meaning that you will be able to enjoy your shade sail without worry – even in harsh weather conditions.
