Custom Canopy Manufacture

Our unique freeform concept makes Tensile Fabric Structures simple

The Freeform concept from SD Sails is a unique system specifically designed to take the complexity out of tensile fabric structures and canopies.

Having drawn on over 25 years of experience in designing and manufacturing sails and canopies, the difference is in our unique universal-angle corner fittings, that allow you to order a totally bespoke canopy, up to 40m perimeter with 3 to 8 corners, quickly and easily using our online system.

Available in a wide range of shade and waterproof fabrics and featuring a huge spectrum of colours and styles, the Freeform concept puts beautifully engineered tensile canopies within easy reach of anybody working in landscaping and construction industries.
