Whilst technically shade sails are fabric sails suspended to offer shade the term 'shade sail' has become an umbrella term (excuse the pun!) for tensile fabric structures of many kinds which we group in our Maxima range and come in a wide range of colours, shapes and sizes.

The need for shade in schools

Children spend almost half their childhood at school, with approximately 8 hours per week spent outdoors. During the hotter months of the year children are exposed to UV radiation from the sun, the majority of which is when UV penetration is at its strongest.
