The Outdoor space around you forms an important part of daily life, from family needs to entertaining friends.  Sail Shades Direct specializes in making the most of yours, using retractable solutions, awnings and fixed structures.

Our company is based in Cornwall just a stone’s throw from Plymouth. We offer a nationwide service and are regularly in London.

The product range has been developed over the last 10 years working with partners across the globe.

Our modular structures – We source a few ranges of aluminium framed structures. Our entry level models are manually operated and are custom made to suit the situation. These models are – ONDA, KUBE, VELA. We also produce an electric retractable roof system so that your outside space can be quickly transformed and this is Ideal for commercial settings.

For a more traditional “sail look” we make a few ranges that are either fixed or retractable. Using award winning Italian technology the systems are very simple to use but provide a contemporary look.

For difficult sites we produce 100% bespoke fixed solutions for both rain and sun protection. With full 3D CAD drawings we are able to really find the best solution for clients.

Quality is at the forefront of all our products and we only use high end materials. The fabrics are produced in either the USA or France to a market leading standard.

A new product added to our range in 2019 was the traditional wall mounted awnings. These are ideal products for small to medium applications.

I have personally been working with fabrics as a sailmaker/covermaker since I left school as the academic route just wasn’t for me. I wanted to be outside working, creating things and dealing with people.  I have worked all over the country and internationally having been fortunate enough to experience sail making in both Asia and Europe. All in all I have spent nearly 15 years working with fabrics so I can offer a huge wealth of experience.

Our mission is to deliver both bespoke and standard shading solutions for the commercial and residential customer.
