Determine the size and shape of the awning.

Size and shape are key

CatVela handcrafts each of the sails and it is our desire that they blend in as much as possible with their surroundings and that they fit as much as possible to the shade and/or privacy desires of our customers.

This means that CatVela solar sails are specially designed for your terrace, your garden or any other space you want to protect from the sun or prying eyes.
The design of a solar sail has multiple possibilities. We will help you find the best option for your case.
To start working we only need a sketch of the space to be shaded and a couple of photos.

The sides of a solar sail are not straight, they are curved. This cut with a radius of curvature is crucial to obtain adequate sail tension. Correct sail tensioning is vital for the durability of the sail and for a beautiful appearance. Also, keep in mind that between the anchor point of the sail and the sail handle there is a distance that depends on the rigging screw used (in our case, at CatVela, pulley rigging screws).
