Commercial sails are the modern and efficient way to control heat gain and glare in any commercial large or high glazed space.
Commercial sails are both versatile and effective, whilst their simple design compliments the style and dimensions of almost any space plus commercial sails will provide the solution you want by controlling solar glare and gain while maintaining a light filled space with an open view and an airy feel.
Our commercial 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 suns energy reflected as heat. However, around 25% of the light is refracted through the layers of fibres that constitute the fabric. These fibres diffuse and filter the sunlight, bathing the space below in cool diffuse light.

Hard sound reflective surfaces like glass, concrete and wood cause speech sounds to overlap each other, resulting in muddy, unintelligible sound. The low tension levels in stretch fabric sails can be used to reduce the sound reflected off of hard surfaces, softening the space and preventing echo.
Commercial sails as a concept are incredibly simple but 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.
Our designers will work closely with you to realise your vision; with our passion to create beautiful solutions, experience in tackling challenging problems, and advanced software to create complex forms this process is often quicker and easier than you 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.

Case Study – 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 tended to focus 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 – The solution was stretch fabric acoustic wall paneling 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.
5 Year Guarantee for peace of mind
All our commercial sails have a 5 Year Guarantee as standard. Should there be any faults with your sails within 5 Years from the date of installation we will attend site to rectify any problems.
