Brief History of Sail Awnings
In it's purest form, sun sails have been around since the first person stepped under a cloth or reads to get out of the heat of the sun. The Egyptians and Syrians really developed the idea of actual sun sails with woven cloth or mats made of prosperous or other wearable plants. Ancient travelers spoke of covered markets and shaded rooms for the Pharaoh.
The Romans were the first to do sun sails in a big way and we mean really big way. The Roman Colosseum built in AD 70 had a giant sun sail installed, called the Velarium, that could shade up to two thirds of the audience. This sun sail was so large it is believe it had to be operated by the Roman navy.
Sun Sails became quite common place on store fronts, hotels entrances and restaurants after that. People have been bringing canopies and tents to beaches and setting them up in the back yard for over a hundred years but as anyone how has done this knows how difficult it can be and is not a very full time solution to the issue.
The modern sail awning have not been around for very long, considerably, and don't have the same issues of catching the wind like a tent or bent canopy because of the flat nature of the sail and the shape also helps alleviate catching in the wind as well.
