Shade Sail Canopies

At Miko Engineering, we are passionate about improving outdoor spaces, whether it be with canopies, shelters or street furniture. Our shade sail canopies are the perfect solution if you are looking to add some shade and style to your outdoor space. 

What is a Shade Sail Canopy?

A shade sail canopy is an outdoor structure that provides shade and protection from the sun. The design of the canopy allows it to be tensioned tightly to create a curved, yet smooth surface that provides maximum shade coverage. 

Our Shade Sail Canopies

The shade sail material is the same material used in sailing boats and is extremely hard-wearing, offering both UV protection and water repellent  shade cloth. You can trust that your shade sail canopy will last for years to come and maintain its aesthetic appeal. 

The quality of our shade sail structures is unparalleled and with such a wide range of sail shade options, there is a shade sail structure to fit all requirements and tastes. Our sun sail shades are some of the best shade sails available and are hugely popular in schools, colleges, universities, workplaces and business parks alike. 

By combining your sun shade with picnic tables and other outdoor furniture you can transform your outdoor space into an open social space whilst remaining more sheltered from the elements and boasting sun protection. Sun shade Sail canopies for schools and universities are also a popular option due to their versatility to include outdoor teaching spaces.

Benefits of shade sail canopies:

  • One of the most common times to make use of shade sails is during a lunch break, when the UV rays are usually at their strongest. By having a heavy duty shade sail installation, you will have more sunshade and protection from harmful uv rays and other harsh weather conditions.
  • Increase the outdoor appeal of your building or space with a unique shade sail design. These fabric structures can be made bespoke to your requirements and can add a touch of sophistication to any outdoor space. 
  • Shade sails can be easily installed by Miko Engineering in a fast and efficient manner. We can also install the stainless steel anchors to maximise the lifespan of your shade solutions. 
  • A variety of sail shapes are available for our shade sails. We can install triangle shade sails, square shade sails or or even a rectangular shade sail for your school or outdoor space.

We purchased a number of bespoke external bicycle and buggy storage units from MIKO last year for use by residents of our blocks of flats. The units are clad in timber so blend into the surroundings and are very well used by our tenants as an alternative to storing items in communal stairwells. The company were extremely pleasant to work with, keeping me informed throughout the design and installation stage. I have no hesitation in recommending them as we had an excellent customer experience, we will certainly be using them again in the future if another project should arise. – Elaine Walters, Broadacres Housing

I heartily recommend Miko Shelter Solutions – they have been like Ronseal and done exactly what they said on the tin!

I am writing to thank you for the work that Miko Engineering recently carried out at Oakfield Junior School where you installed an Alnwick Cycle Shelter and Scooter Rack. I have visited the school and I am very pleased with the quality of the work. I would also like to thank you for agreeing to complete the work in time for the school’s ‘Bike It’ activity week. The shelter and rack are already being well used. – Martin Kelly, Transport Strategy, Gateshead Council
