WASHING

The sails as a first step are soaked in special washing solution to be cleansed from salt and impurities. Remaining stains are removed by use of sail washing liquid, special brushes and cleansing machine. During the whole process no whitening cleaners nor presurized water is used in order not to damage the sail cloth and coating. Unfortunately there is no guarantee of removal for rust and soaked in stains from the cloth.

You can extend the life of your sails with regular winter maintenance. The sails you are using all year long is subject salt water, rain and dust carried with wind. If your sails are not purified from these effects they will get damages in time and the life span will be shortenned. Apart from your sails, the other parts like lazy bag, bimini, sprayhood, tents are also subject to the same effects and the maintenance of these will enable them to serve you for long years. UK Sailmakers is providing this winter maintenance service in Turkiye with widely spread service chain.

UV BAND DEĞİŞİMİ

UV BAND CHANGE

UV Protective tape is the most effective method of protecting your winding sails against UV rays. UV Tapes are manufactured from special acrylic fabrics that are not affected by the sun. When the UV band of your sail is damaged, it must be repaired or replaced as soon as possible. Otherwise, your sails will be exposed to the wearing effect of the sun. All the materials we use, from sewing thread to corner columns in UV Tape repair and replacement, have high UV resistance. Poor materials and poor sewing machines to be used during these repairs and replacements will definitely not get the right result and your sails will look worse and not protected than before.
