The ellipsoidal shape, with its curved edges between the ribbing, has an extravagant look that stands out distinctively from the uniform appearances of conventional shade sail systems. But the advantages don’t stop there: this shape is not only eye-catching but also incredibly practical. The convex edges allow for a wider sail, which offers greater protection from sun and rain. Further- more, the system only requires a single mast, which saves valuable space for maximum freedom of movement in the shade.
The Clouth profiles, special handcrafted battens, are responsible for the automatic arching of the sail. Rainwater runs right off the sides without pooling, and the flexible ribbing easily absorbs gusts of wind. In stronger winds, a specially developed wind-pressure-relief system in the mast prevents excessive strain on the system. The result: a unique atmosphere of comfort and well-being in any weather. Like all other C4sun products, every elips4sun system is a custom-made, automatically furling, one-of-a-kind shade sail.
What sets the elips4sun shade sail apart from conventional systems is its eye-catching design with curved edges between the ribbing. The space-saving construction only requires one tensioning cable and a single mast. Discover a completely new outdoor-living ambience, and enjoy this exceptionally attractive style of comfort and protection!
You can keep everything under control at all times with the TaHoma system from Somfy, the global market leader in home automation. This system allows you to operate your C4sun shade sail system conveniently via remote control, computer or smartphone app. Or you can simply leave it up to the wind and sun sensor, which reliably monitors and responds to changes in the weather and light conditions around the clock.

Every C4sun shade sail is handcrafted to the desired for- mat and size. In addition to the four standard colours, a further 16 colour options are available, enabling you to customise the sail design to fit ideally to the surround- ings and your personal tastes. The colours shown on the left are only intended as a guide. Before selecting a col- our, please contact us to request a set of fabric samples.
For its sails, C4sun uses exclusively WeatherMax 80, a high-strength fabric that is both breathable and extremely watertight. With a fabric weight of 270 g/m2, it combines high tear strength with an optimal elastic recovery and excellent colour brilliance and fastness. WeatherMax 80 is resistant to mould and mildew and offers maximum protection from glare and UV rays.
With ground screws, the masts can be anchored to the ground quickly, cleanly and securely. This patented foundation system from the German company Krinner is an excellent alternative to concrete foundations. The ground screws are driven into the ground quickly and easily using special equipment. The conical shape compacts the soil around the screw, producing the required stability. There- fore, no time-consuming excavation work is necessary. In comparison to concrete foundations, this method is extremely fast, environmentally friendly and clean.
The ideal solution for terraces, particularly roof terraces: Our cubes measure 80 x 80 x 40 cm and can be placed anywhere on flat surfaces. For safety purposes, they are either weighted with up to 400 kg of ballast material or anchored to the ground. The choice is yours: as a place to sit or a decorative planter – our impressively multifunctional cubes are so much more than simply stable bases for masts.
Our base flange plates are the best choice if you plan to place your mast systems on an existing foundation or a level surface. This solution is ideal for the installation of a shade-sail system on existing terraces.
