Do You Want To Impress With Your Outdoor Space?
Our sail shades will keep you drier in the rain and cooler in the sun. Our outdoor shades and shelters are simple, elegant and robust; we use the same technology employed in the manufacture of ships' sails. Each 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're made to last.
Designing Your Sail Shade
Gower SailShades offer a wide range of outdoor sail shades to suit the style and dimensions of any space. Used alone or in combination, the sails immediately provide a fresher, lighter touch. Our sail shades can be stretched, twisted, and shaped – the only limit is your imagination. Our designs range from the understated, to the elegant, to the spectacular!
We understand that every requirement is unique and the team is here to provide you with the best solution. Our aim is to meet your needs, using our experience to create a durable, exceptional, value-for-money product.
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+.
