A revolutionary approach to outdoor shading

Searching for a comfortable, convenient, and cost-effective shading solution for your outdoor space? The Twister Sail does not require highly engineered installations or additional structures, defying the rules for traditional awnings. Featuring a minimalist design, the Twister Sail is able to cover up to a 20′ x 20′ area, and can also lay horizontal unlike standard folding-arm awnings. A few of the unique features that make the Twister Sail special are:

  • Low-load attachment to the structure or building
  • Feather touch operation
  • High wind resistance
  • Ability to operate flat, or at an 8° angle to allow for rain runoff
  • Made with translucent, rain-proof fabric

In addition to the above, the Twister Sail can be applied in a variety of configurations to seamlessly fit into your space. This is because tension can be provided with either full Tension Columns or Tension Cassettes, meaning the Twister Sail can be attached to the wall of another structure.

The Twister Sail is an excellent shading solution for a variety of spaces and environments, including:

  • Balconies and terraces: Get the same benefit of a shade triangle, with the added ability to hand-operate the system.
  • Gardens and yards: Turn your garden into a shaded oasis for relaxation, or protect your flowers and plants.
  • Decks and patios: Gone are the days of shifting your chair and umbrella to avoid the sun.
  • Yachts and marinas: Transform the deck of your yacht or the marina into a cool, breezy place. Since the Twister Sail is hand-operated, there is no need to worry about wiring.
  • Restaurants and hospitality businesses: Provide a comfortable environment for your guests – Skyco is even able to print your logo on the Twister Sail.
