Sail Shades Direct specialises in bespoke shading solutions, including all design and engineering aspects from planning to installation. Structural flexibility, detailing and energy conservation are paramount in design standards. Fixed and retractable options are available.

The company's fabric design department can transform any domestic environment.

Sail shades are cost-effective and provide a contemporary image, flexibility of space, and a dynamic but tranquil atmosphere.

Key benefits

Eco-friendly
The raw material consists exclusively of carbon and hydrogen. There is no waste yarn in the spinning process.

Hydrophobic yarn
Aquastop is hydrophobic by nature: with a maximum absorption rate of 0.05% it is the least absorbent yarn available for soft woven textiles. As it does not absorb moisture into the fibre, drying time is minimal.

Lightweight
Aquastop is the lightest of all fibres and is lighter than water (density is 0.91). It is 30% lighter than polyester, 20% lighter than nylon. and 25% lighter than acrylic.

Thermal conductivity
Possesses the lowest thermal conductivity of any natural or synthetic fibre. The insulation factor is greater by weight for Aquastop than other fibre.

Chemically resistant
Aquastop will not react to ordinary chemicals, body salts or sweat, and will not degrade in their presence. Even if attacked by acid rain, it will not break down.

No retention
Bacteria, mould and mildew cannot grow on Aquastop, and will not damage the fibre.

Colour fastness
Aquastop is pre-coloured in the liquid stage before spinning so the colour in the fibre is part of the fibre itself. It will hold colour no matter the final use. During the life of the fabric colours will not be damaged. The test method selected for colour fastness to light was the European UNI EN ISO 105 B02 and gave 7-8/8 in the Blue Scale.

Abrasion resistant
It is a durable fibre, and will withstand use and tear. Fabric will stay looking new for longer. The abrasion resistance to the Martindale test method leaves the woven unchanged after 50.000 cycles. The Spray Test has given the highest result in the evaluation scale
