Choose from a variety of size options to suit your needs. The dimensions you request will be what the panel will stretch to. It’s what we call our “comfortable stretched dimensions.” This means that it’s not difficult to stretch the Panel into place, however, the Panel is tight enough to never be loose or floppy. Panels can also stretch a bit more or less about +/-10%.
We guarantee the brightest crisp white products on the market and also carry a variety of brilliant color options to choose from. See our color chart here.
Looking to brand this product? We offer full color dye-sublimation printing on the stretch fabric.

Flat Panel Sails are a fantastic solution for temporary or permanent backdrops, ceiling pieces, or interior design. They’re designed as captivating stand-alone pieces or can be coupled with LED wash lighting. Panels also work very well as an alternative surface for presenting video displays.
When you receive your Flat Panel Sail you will notice that it comes shipped about 25% smaller than the size you order. To install the Panel, apply tension to each of the corners and stretch it into place. The amount of tension needed per corner is variable with small Panels (0’-12’) requiring about 5 lbs per corner, medium Panels (12’-20’) about 15 lbs per corner, and larger Panels (>20’) about 30 lbs per corner. Panels have sewn in rigging points on each corner. Included 60 lb. test invisible rigging line may be used for installation by tying it onto the rigging point and then tethering the Panel in mid-air or along a ceiling. As well, Panels may be anchored directly to a wall using screw eyes (not included).
All Stretch Shapes products are custom cut and made in America. Each Panel has a two-ply stretch hem border that runs around the entire perimeter. This adds stretch and durability to the Panel while embellishing its finished presence. Corners are finished with low profile fabric loops. Low Profile corners provide a refined look suitable for permanent installation because they come to more of a sharp point at the end. Every product is hand manufactured with exact precision and expertise.
All of our Flat Panel Sail products use our premium IFR stretch fabric. This is a 5.9 oz. 90% Polyester & 10% Spandex product that is stain resistant and machine washable. Even after multiple washes, our stretch fabric will still hold its IFR (Inherently Flame Retardant) rating.
Flat Panel Sails may get dirty, especially if they’re hung as a ceiling treatment where they are prone to collecting dust. They may be washed with detergent plus a non-bleach whitener such as OxiClean® (for whites). Dry them in a standard dryer on low and they’ll come out looking like new while retaining their flame certification. They will always be wrinkle free due to the stretch material.

For all of our Flat Panel Sails, we include 100’ of invisible rigging line, a drawstring bag for storage*, a pair of handling gloves to prevent fingerprints, and a 1-year warranty card. The 1-year warranty is of no additional cost to you. All products are guaranteed against out of box material defects e.g. stains, rips, punctures or any other material defects. We also warranty our top quality workmanship in every step of the production process e.g. fabric cutting, serging, and sewing. We guarantee our seams will not come undone or tear and our corner mounts will last for the duration of the warranty (under normal wear and tear).

Custom Flat Panel Sails:
Nearly any width flat panel sail is achievable. If the length or width of your flat panel sail is greater than 40’ however, the other dimension cannot be longer than 40’. We can create just about any geometric shape that you request. Customize your flat panel sail in any of our stock 16 colors. We can also Pantone match the color of your fabric to any Pantone color through dye sublimation printing (there is an additional charge for dye sublimation printing). We can change the width of the double thick borders on Stretch Shapes flat panel sails. Unless otherwise requested, flat panel sails with under 8’ x 12’ are manufactured with a 2” hemmed border and sails over 8’ x 12’ are manufactured with a 4” hemmed border. Rigging points can be added anywhere along the border of your flat panel sail. Rigging points can be placed as close as 6” apart. Each additional rigging point adds $3.50 to the cost of your flat panel sail. The tension of your flat panel sail can be increased or decreased to accommodate your needs. This can be helpful in applications in which panels are being hung in a ceiling and minor drooping needs to be minimized (by increasing tension), or in applications in which rigging points can only handle minimal tension (and tension is thus decreased).
This product is handcrafted in the USA with stretch fabric that is IFR (inherently flame retardant) and passes NFPA 701, CSFM Title 19 & ASTM E84 flame certification standards, even after repeated machine washing. The flame-proofing with this tension fabric is built into the fiber of the material (IFR) and not sprayed on after production.
Custom Flat Panel sails are made to order. Lead times will vary based on the size and quantity of your order. Typical lead times are 3-5 business days for non-printed Flat Panel Sails and 10 business days for printed items.
