Shade sails are a great way to provide shade and protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays, especially in the UK where the weather can be unpredictable and often surprisingly hot and sunny during the summer months. Learn more about our custom shade sails in London.

Whether for a small backyard or a large commercial area, SD Sails can make your shade sail in any shape, style and material, with the possibility to choose from dozens of premium outdoor canopy fabrics.

What are the benefits of custom shade sails?

1. High UV Protection

While summer months are the favourite time of the year for many because of the warm and sunny weather, the negative impact of prolonged exposure to the sun is often overlooked

Installing shade sails in your backyard, patio, swimming pool or playground ensures that you are providing valuable protection against sunburn, skin cancer, and other harmful effects resulting from the sun’s powerful radiation. Opting for a custom shading solution guarantees complete coverage of any shape and size, offering optimal shielding against the UV and UVB rays.

At SD Sails, we offer an extensive collection of breathable as well as waterproof fabrics that you can choose from for your custom shade sails in London. 

2. Cost-effective

Installing traditional solid structures, such as building a permanent roof or installing an awning, can be expensive. Bespoke shade sails offer a cost-effective shading solution for your commercial or residential establishment, ensuring proper protection from the heat without the need to make a high initial investment. This is because custom shade sails require less material and labour to construct and install.

Additionally, because custom shade sails are designed to fit the specific needs of the client and the space, they can be customised to maximise the amount of shade provided while minimising any unnecessary materials or labour. This means that the client only pays for what they actually need, and not for any unnecessary features or materials.

Moreover, custom shade sails effectively reduce operational expenses by lessening the amount of heat that infiltrates the pool, thereby lowering the water evaporation rate.

3. Increase aesthetic value

Installing custom shade sails is a great way to enhance the aesthetic value of your outdoor area, especially if you have the option to personalise the design to your tastes and preferences with a company like SD Sails. As a leading manufacturer in London, we offer end-to-end shade sail production and installation solutions for your business.

With an extensive array of premium fabrics, colours, shapes and styles to choose from, you can add a unique, stylish touch to your patio or backyard that matches your aesthetic preferences, on top of the much-needed protection from the sun.
