An Introduction to Able Canopies

Sun Shade Sails

Sun Shade Sails

Able Canopies Sun Shade Sails are made covered with high quality, commercial grade shade sail fabric which protects those underneath from 98.9% of the Sun's harmful UV rays. The knitted polythene fabric also lets a cool breeze flow through the small gaps within the fabric which is very pleasant during the hot humid summer months.

They are supported by galvanised steel posts which can also be powder coated in the RAL colour of your choice at an additional cost

Because they are covered with knitted polythene fabric, our sun shade sails are not waterproof and are therefore only ideal for creating shade from the sun rather than shelter from the rain. We have a range of waterproof tensile fabric structures and waterproof shade sails which provide protection against all weather conditions.
