Custom design to measure sun sails are a practical solution for optimal surface shading. Sun sail constructions impress with their bold designs.
It can be “built” in two and in three dimensions. By changing the high and low points the sun sails radial curvatures create shade where desired. Sun sails are available as free-standing form in front of the house, in the garden or as a textile attachment to the building. The use of waterproof textiles guarantees all weather protection.
Thanks to their sturdy construction, snow proof sails can be used all year round. In addition to wind loads, the snow load required by the snow load zone is taken into account.
These sails are designed for short-term use only. They are quick and easy to assemble. The poles are attached to ballast containers, between which the sail is braced.
They are used in the summer months. They are statically calculated considering arising wind loads. They are dismantled and stored in the winter months.
Our awnings are individual one-of-a-kind pieces, designed, constructed and manufactured with modern technology and years of know-how in craftsmanship.
The installation of a solar sail requires a careful planning. We are happy to advise you regarding shape, material and installation options as well as the required static specifications. With the help of our 3D program we are able to visualize all different types of sails.
A circumferential steel cable in conjunction with a size-dependent hollow section enables tensile forces in the textile membrane, resulting in an optimal tension of the sail. At the reinforced corners, the tensile force is transmitted to the poles or wall brackets by means of terminal clamps. The poles and wall brackets are supplied in the following versions: Steel, hot-dip galvanized; Steel, powder-coated or stainless steel, glass bead blasted.
For a proper installation of the solar sails, the correct fastening is of upmost importance. It is required to take wind and tensile loads into account, depending on the location. If necessary, static calculations are performed to ensure good stability. We can offer our customers varying technologies.
In addition to the classic concrete foundations, the Krinner screw foundation as well as a ground anchor system for anchoring tensioning cables for sun sails masts are available as they are particularly landscape-friendly alternatives. Both types of fastenings are installed in a short time and ready for use. As a result, they offer considerable savings in assembly time and cost.
We source the textile materials for our awnings from Serge Ferrari. The Serge Ferrari Group designs manufactures and distributes innovative, and environmentally friendly flexible composite materials, which are characterized by their lightness, durability and recyclability.
