Custom Fabricated Shade Sail Systems

We design custom shade sail structural systems for both residential and commercial application. They are great for any outdoor living space that will benefit from additional shade and UV protection from the sun. Our outdoor-rated fabric is the only type that offers a 10-year warranty as well as earn the “Seal Of Recommendation” by the Skin Cancer Foundation. It’s been proven to provide up to 98% protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays too. Shade Sails are outstretched fabric canopies that come in a wide range of beautiful outdoor-rated fabric. The fabric canopy gets stretched to the state of high-tension, at multiple bearing points (three or more points), giving it a look that resembles a traditional sail on a sailboat. Here at Metro Awnings of Southern Nevada, we offer a wide range of aesthetic options when it comes to the color, size, and style of our tensioned shade sails. View a few of our shade sail design configurations below.

Custom Commercial & Residential Shade Sail Fabric Canopies

Shade Sails have been used to provide convenient shade since the Greek and Roman empires. Historians document the use of large shade sails to provide shade to the Roman Colosseum. The shade structures were made from woven fabrics and cut to geometric shapes to fit any areas that needed extra shade. While cheaper and easier to build than alternative shade options, these knitted shade sails were susceptible to damaging UV rays, wind, and rain. These early shade sails required frequent maintenance, repair, and replacement.

Modern shade sails, constructed from flexible outdoor-rated fabric, are conditioned to resist damage from UV rays, high winds, and rain. Newer shade sail fabrics come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors to suit the many different outdoor environments and applications. Shade sails have several reinforced connection points and can be fixed in place or connected to rope/pulley systems to allow fast raising and lowering as needed. Many locations use multiple layers of shade sails to not only protect from wind and weather but also for design and aesthetics. Shade sails can be designed to compliment any area all year round.
