Shaded Nation – Shade Sails

How are shade sails being used across the UK and beyond?

One of the best things about shade sails is their sheer versatility. These adaptable structures can be used for a wide variety of purposes and that is reflected by the diverse client base we cater to here at Shaded Nation.

Whether it’s large outdoor events or just a family home, we’re experienced at providing either bespoke or ready-made shade solutions for all sorts of customers. Here is a rundown of some of the most common ways our shades have been used in the UK and beyond.

A look at the various ways shade sail structures can be used.

Outdoor events
All manner of outdoor events are able to make use of the shelter provided by a shade sail. Whether it’s a music festival, sporting occasion or village fete, these structures can really serve to enhance a day out.

As well as providing a space in which people can relax out of the sun and other elements, they can be used as ideal space to locate food and refreshment stalls and other facilities that need cover from the weather.

Retail and hospitality 
Our shade structures are commonly used in both the retail and hospitality industries. Shops are able to use them as a means of creating additional, outdoor space in which they can display their wares.

Meanwhile, restaurants, cafes, pubs and other hospitality venues use our shades to create sheltered al fresco dining areas. The semi-permanent nature of our products makes them ideal for this purpose as they can be taken down during the winter and then reassembled in the spring when demand for outdoor eating and drinking returns.

One of the most popular uses for our products is in the education sector. We have installed shade sails for schools, nurseries, day care centres and youth clubs and they can be used in a variety of ways.

For example, extending a shade structure onto the side of a building is an affordable way to create an outdoor classroom. We also regularly install playground shades, meaning kids can enjoy being outside without being exposed to the elements.

Shade structures can also fulfill more practical purposes such as providing a covered storage space for outdoor furniture or other school equipment.

It isn’t just schools and businesses that can make use of a shade sail structure, as we also cater for strong demand from residential customers.

There are more potential uses for a shade in the home then you might think. For example, they can be used to cover a koi pond, shelter a child’s sandpit, or simply create a relaxed and shaded spot in which you can sit and enjoy your garden. Shade structures can even be used as an affordable way to create a car port.

We have products to suit all household budgets and can provide ready-made or bespoke shades depending on your preference.
