We were asked to design, manufacture and install nine feature sails as part of the library refurbishment at Southampton Solent University.

A very low ceiling dictated that they has to take up very little space, so flat sails were agreed to be the best solution - to avoid the ligthing and ceiling itself.

The sails are made from a fire-rated coloured polyester fabric and were fitted to lightweight coated frames to produce a kite-like form.

These type of sails form part of our range of interior products, available in a series of sizes and colours.

These shapes have been used here for Costa Coffee - hung between existing columns from a series of bridled cables.

The sails are best cleaned by vacuming the top face - and should be looking great for many years to come.
