Looking To Protect Your Trading Area in Style?
Our commercial sail shades & canopies will keep your customers drier in the rain and cooler in the sun.
Using the same technology employed in the manufacture of ships' sails, our outdoor sail shades and shelters are simple, elegant and robust.
Each commercial sail shade is handmade in the UK, using the finest marine-grade fabric and 316 stainless steel rigging hardware with an option of either timber or metal posts. They are made to last.
Commercial Sail Shades are particularly suited to:
- Landscaped gardens, patios and decking areas
- Perfect for hotels, restaurants, bars & clubs, sports venues, colleges, carports & car parks, hospitals, retail outlets and local government buildings
- Robust enough and practical for schools, nurseries and parks, creating simple yet attractive covered areas in playgrounds and recreational areas
- Gower SailShades can also replace damaged and defective fabric on existing Garden Awnings & Parasols
Durability with style in all weathers

- Highly skilled consultants with combined sailing, sail-making and architectural experience design and install the sail shades.
Children are most at risk from the sun’s harmful UV rays, so shade provision for children is vital.
There are around 10,500 cases of Melanoma diagnosed each year; the number of cases has almost tripled since the early 1980s. Over 2,300 people die from skin cancer each year in the UK. In fact, there are more skin cancer deaths in the UK than in Australia, even though Australia has more cases of the disease.
If your shadow is longer than you are, then you are safe in the sun. When your shadow is shorter than you are, the sun can burn you.*
If shade and UV protection are important to you, then be reassured that the fabric that we use in our shades blocks 99% of UVA/UVB Ultraviolet rays and has an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50+.
