Do You Want To Impress Your Customers In Style?
Easily our most successful product to date, with thousands of units sold since 2006. Our commercial sail shades are beautiful and effective solutions to control heat and glare for internal glazed commercial roof spaces such as offices, restaurants, large conservatories, atriums and many more.
This commercial shade solution has been significantly improved over the last two years with the introduction of a new high performance solar control stretch fabric, the ISX fabric. This tensile fabric has been developed in partnership with a leading UK-based technical textiles mill specifically for the application of indoor solar shading and control.
Our ISX FR tensioned fabric range outperforms all other tensile fabrics for heat reflection, light transmission and overall solar efficiency.
Control Heat and Glare
- Energy-efficient fabric reflects the sun's heat on hot sunny days while admitting soft natural diffused light to keep indoor space light and bright even on a dull day
- We now make it easier to create the solution you want, providing the solar control you need while maintaining a light-filled space with an open view
- InShade as a concept is incredibly simple but it works so well that the options are almost limitless and the results are always stunning. Your solution will be tailored to your space and developed specifically to meet your requirements
- The low-tension levels in stretch fabric sails can be used to reduce the sound reflected off hard surfaces, softening the space and preventing echo in large spaces
Case study by Meeting Space
The Problem - A large atrium space was formed by closing two wings of a building. The space was used for social events, exhibitions, and presentations to large audiences. As well as large areas of hard surface, the acoustic issues were exacerbated by a pitched glass roof which focused the sound towards the centre of the room. In addition to the poor acoustics, this glazed roof caused excessive heat gain and glare.
The Solution - We created a stretch fabric acoustic wall panelling and stretch fabric ceiling sails. To target low and mid frequencies, the face of the stretch fabric panels were positioned off the wall and backed with acoustic foam and a 60mm air gap. High level fabric ‘sails’ were installed to overcome the glare and excessive heating problems; these sails also act as membrane (panel) absorbers reducing resonance by low frequency noise.
Why is InShade the best product?
Our specially developed ISX fabric is simply the best performing solar control fabric available, it outperforms all of the fabrics we use in our commercial jobs and any fabric available from our suppliers.
The air in your conservatory roof can get, really hot, so to make sure it was up to the job we tested it to 90 degrees centigrade – hotter than the maximum temperature ever recorded in any desert in the world!
For an environment this harsh you only want the best so the fabric is made and finished in the UK by one of the best technical textile mills in the country. We then test every batch of fabric to make sure it is at least twice as good as BS5867-1 requires it to be.
And finally every sail is designed by us, cut on a computer controlled cutting table to your exact dimensions and then hand finished by skilled men and women with decades of experience.
Individual & Bespoke
Our designers will work closely with you to realise your vision. With our passion for creating beautiful solutions and our experience in tackling challenging problems, we use advanced software to create complex yet practical forms. This process is often quicker and easier than you’d imagine. We believe beautiful designs can be created for even the most demanding of spaces and we guarantee to add some wow factor to every project!
Colour Match - Available for all our fabrics, short runs can be produced in any Pantone or RAL colour so that you can always get exactly the colour you want.
Duplex - When heat is gain is a big issue but you still want great colour our Duplex colour fabric is the perfect choice – the duel sided fabric means compromising is not required.
Colour Wash - White sails can be front or back lit – instantly change the mood or create quickly changing dynamic forms and images - perfect for internal spaces and night time use.
Printing – For branding, images or artwork – high definition printing can add punch, glamour.
Acoustics - The low-tension levels in stretch fabric sails can be used to reduce the sound reflected off hard surfaces, softening the space and preventing echo.
InShade now makes it easier to create the solution you want, providing the solar control you need while maintaining a light filled space with an open view.
InShade sails are designed and manufactured in the UK, using solar control fabrics developed specifically for this application. These fabrics have a dense fabric structure that blocks the harsh power of the sun, with most of the sun’s energy reflected as heat. However, around 20% of the light is refracted through the layers of fibres that make up the fabric. These fibres diffuse and filter this sunlight, bathing the space below in a cool soft light.
