automatic shade sail / square / polyester
Defense is a nautical shade sail available in freestanding and wallmounted
versions, made of stainless steel and equipped with an
The structure is actually composed of two sails that are wound on a horizontal bar. The freestanding version is supported by a uniquely designed pole with a matt finish.
On the other hand, the wall-mounted version of Defense uses a stainless steel bracket with a minimum footprint that makes it possible to combine multiple sails to create highly suggestive compositions.
Defense wraps in just a few seconds either by remote control or manually. When motorised, the sail is equipped with a wind sensor to trigger automatic closure in case of strong wind.
The freestanding version of the sail can be rotated 360°, the wall-mounted version 90°.
In both versions, the standard canvas is made of Dacron®, a woven polyester of nautical
origin (subjected to a protective treatment against UV rays) with horizontal panels for
extremely clean lines.
The nautical world and Defense are one and the same. Structure, materials, finishes, design: from the sea we have borrowed the technology used on sailboats to create the perfect shade for any outdoor space.
Defense is available in two different sizes: 290 x 290 cm (Model 11) and 340 x 340 cm (Model 14).
For its unique look, Defense has been listed among the 100 most representative objects of the Made in Italy design.
