The Heart of it All
This product line stands out on account of its organic design. The ellipsoidal cut catches the eye with its curved sides, which set the elips4sun apart from the uniform look shared by conventional triangular sail systems. Convex edges also ensure a wide canvas surface for even greater protection against the sun and rain. And as it features only one mast and four ropes, the sail system takes up as little space as possible while offering maximum freedom of movement in the shade.

The ultimate eye-catching feature of any sail system is of course the canvas. C4sun uses the sail material WeatherMax 80, a technically sophisticated fiber that is suitable for sun and rain protection alike. In accordance with criteria we have set, the tailoring of the sail canvases is carried out by one of the leading sail manufacturers in Germany with innovative manufacturing technology and a high level of experience in sailing and yachting.

Four masts made from high-quality, elegant stainless steel or aluminum complete the look of the sail system, forming a perfect harmony with the timeless design of the sail. A specially developed wind pressure relief system inside the mast enables a calm response to higher wind speeds. An internal weight or an internal damper takes care of the necessary balance. Superlative special components such as pulleys positioned on slide bearings prevent this complex mechanism from generating any unpleasant noises, even in the case of high winds. Each design can be combined with any of the C4sun sail masts (exception: elips4sun is not compatible with ID 110 and IG 101).

Motor | Drive | Control and Safety
The sail is driven by a tube motor located inside the roller tube, which can be operated in a number of different ways. First, it can be operated using advanced, secure io-homecontrol® wireless technology featuring a universal communication protocol. This enables all components to communicate with one another, leaving users free to control all comfort and safety elements via a single unit. It is even possible to control and monitor the system using a smartphone. Secondly, the sail can be extended and retracted using a wired controller or a remote control. Alternatively, these functions can be integrated into an on-site KNX (bus) controller.
The power package is another drive variant in which the reinforced drive is provided by two tube motors. This option is recommended for larger sail surfaces and locations featuring high wind speeds. Please note that with certain sail sizes two motors are included as standard equipment.

C4sun offers multiple installation options with roller tube mounting on walls or rafters being the classic option. Alternatively, the roller tube can be inserted into a free-standing mount on two stainless steel masts – which is equally effective for single and double sail systems. In addition, a customized assembly concept can always be drawn up if required.

Every subsurface is unique, with conditions sometimes varying even within a single surface requiring shade. Practical installation elements are available for each mast to resolve such issues. If that is not the case, users can request an individually-tailored installation concept or freely combine existing mounting elements.

The WeatherMax 80 sail material meets the requirements of UPF50+, the excellent possible ultraviolet protection factor. UPF refers to the inherent level of protection provided by tex- tiles against harmful UV rays.
C4sun sails feature very high levels of wind stability and safety thanks to their special relief mechanisms in the event of wind pressure. These neutralize the power of the wind by significantly reducing the exposed area, meaning you can continue to enjoy your sail long after conventional systems have been retracted.
