Dolphin Tensile Awnings are excited to be exhibiting for the first time at Vision 2017, the UK’s premier built environment event at Olympia, London 6-7th June to display our rapidly expanding portfolio.

Aimed at architects, designers, specifiers and their clients, Vision 2017 provides an international focus for innovative products and building solutions, bringing together some of the best designs and leading figures, offering industry intelligence on products, materials, trends and technology across the market.

With over 50 years of fabric manufacturing, Dolphin are passionate about what can be achieved with a combination of art, science and skilled craftsmen to engineer beautiful awnings. We create awnings of distinction for our clients from art through engineering to reality.

Our design mantra is to seek simplicity and ease of use. Through experience we have evolved many methods of deployment over a range of architectural, industrial and marine projects.

Dolphin Tensile Awnings seek to make best use of what is already in place to support the structures and in many cases adding little or nothing to what currently exists.

For more details of how we create these stunning Tensile Awnings and to discuss your bespoke project with our designers and structural engineers please contact us on:

Winter Servicing

X Yachts

X 55 from X Yachts

One less job for the winter…. let Dolphin wash and service your existing sails and covers.
Its nearly the end of 2015 and with this brings a close to the sailing season for many customers. To help with the longevity of your sails and covers it is best to remove them from the boat during this coming period. Sails and covers that are left on during this cold, wet and damp period are more prone to dirt and may even start to suffer from mould and mildew, inturn leaving unsightly marks which are hard to remove. Did you also know that some insurance policy’s insist that all sails are removed from the rig whilst the boat is laid up ashore.

Start on a clean tack for 2016 !!

Let us wash, service and store your sails until the 2016 season, we have many drop of points in the UK on the East and South Coast, as well as a new service loft in Palma, Majorca.

East Coast – Drop off points from Woodbridge through to The Medway (including Ipswich, Tollesbury, Walton, Fambridge, Bradwell, Burnham, Benfleet, Chatham and Gillingham)
South Coast – Solent plus collections outside this area can be arrange
Spain – Palma, Majorca
email : service@dolphin-sails.com tel: 01206 384412

With these localised drop off points we can hopefully ease the collection and delivery of your sails and covers for you. If you contact us now to make arrangements then at least this is one job removed from the boat maintenance list !!
