Shade Solutions – Shade Sails from Kemp Sails

Since 1985, Kemp Sails have been designing top quality sails for day boats, cruisers and racing yachts. A little over 16 years ago we expanded our business into the shade sail market and very quickly became the UK experts in this field. Our approach to shade sails is very similar to that of our yacht sails: build the best possible product backed up with the highest levels of customer service.

At Shade Solutions we draw on decades of knowledge gleaned from designing and building yacht sails to produce our contemporary shade sails. The design and build quality is second to none; our shades can withstand many years outdoor exposure, offering the highest UV filtration, heat absorption and weather resistance. Architecturally sleek and visually striking, they create a stunning yet functional feature that will greatly enhance your outdoor space.

After all the mithering and pushing for the sail you made for my garden pergola – thought I would send an e-mail over to say thank you, really pleased with the final.

One happy lady.


Delighted to advise that we have now been able to fit the two triangular sails.

The links that you supplied made all the difference and there is still plenty of adjustment left in the turnbuckles, even after tensioning. The links have made it easier to connect to the eyelets on our poles, so I intend on leaving them in place.

Many thanks for all of your help.


Thank you very much for the sail. We got it up at the weekend and it’s absolutely spot on and looks great.


They are a game changer.  A material reduction in solar gain and we’re not sitting inside wearing sunnies any longer.

We now need think about shade for the bifolds…a problem for next year.

Dear Becky,
We have finally re-erected our garden parasol today and unwrapped the cover that your company has made. We are very pleased with the cover – it almost exactly matches the colour of the parasol itself, is a great fit and MUCH less intrusive (and subject to comment) than the old one.
Many thanks, from satisfied customers.


Just thought you might like to know that the shade sail delivered yesterday is great and fitted perfectly. I’m glad I took your advice and spent extra time on the measure up because the sail went on really well with the rigging screws all set to 1/2 open…a precision job! Paul


Dear Beccy,
The shade sail arrived yesterday and we put it up last night. It is wonderful and is holding off the rain most admirably today – I think it might well be needed for our big event on Saturday! Thank you very much for your part in ensuring that we have a beautifully made and designed shade sail in good time for our event. Please pass on my thanks to the team as well – it is a brilliant job.

“Hi … I’m not sure whether you remember, but last year you made a shade sail for us to us next to our pool here in Italy
It worked out perfectly and has made a real difference to the pool, The 12 mm fittings which I bought also look the part
Thanks again for your help….”

“Hi….Sail shade installed, great success, great fit. Had slight dodgy moment initially, but realised I was erecting it upside down!!!
Very pleased. So much so am looking to install another on a different section of the terrace”
