      Sail Shades


      Set Sail with Design

      Using compelling swoops, free-hanging "clouds," or unique counterweights, our sail shades establish an aesthetic signature for atrium spaces and skylights of any dimension or height. A selection of durable fabrics control glare and solar heat gain while diffusing and optimizing daylighting throughout an environment.

      Our engineers create and test our sail-shade systems specifically for the needs of each project. This detailed approach results in a custom solution constructed from proven fabrics and components.
