Yachting | 2020
The SunSquare Kautzky GmbH company was founded in Vienna in 1993 and ever since then has developed and manufactured sun sails. In the interim, the company has advanced to become market leader throughout the world, having produced more than 10,000 such sails. More than 80% of production is exported. Their latest innovation known as “Fold & Roll” promises to become the new superstar of the production assortment.
When this sun protection solution was presented at the IMM in Cologne, Germany, for the first time in 2018, an immense international echo of enthusiasm erupted, particularly in the private high-end zone of luxury yacht owners and manufacturers, as well as of luxury hotels and restaurants. The “Fold & Roll” model is the ultra-modern alternative to customary large-span parasols on terraces and pool decks. Even the open on-deck spaces of yachts are ideal sites for this extravagant design and perfect sun protection.
Perfect at sea
“For its flawless engineering processes, SunSquare benefits enormously from close relations with shipbuilders,” explains Gregor Lex of SunSquare. “The sophisticated demands of shipbuilders and yacht owners can always be fulfilled through our longstanding experience and our award-winning design. Our sunsail systems retract automatically when winds become strong, making them predestined favourites for use on windy seas. The stainless steel we use of quality class 1.4571 / 316Ti is superbly suited for deployment on the ocean.”
Chief designer at SunSquare, Mag. Gerald Wurz, has created a genuine design classic with the new “Fold & Roll”. Its 270° rotatability is the reason that out of the 30m2 area it draws a whalloping 75 m² of sun protection. And it is intelligent: when wind velocity becomes too strong, the system’s arms automatically fold in and the sail rolls itself up.
“Fold & Roll” sun sails are available exclusively at certified SunSquare dealers.
