As seen with many transparent atrium roofs, the solar gain can be quite strong, and the introduction of some tensile solar shade sails not only help reduce the solar factor; but also adds some life and colour into the roof space.

These sails are tensioned onto tri-frames and the suspended at varying elevations and angles though out the roof space.

The fabric is a Class O fire rated PVC Coated Glass Fibre. Available in two weave styles and a variety of colours.
