Nautica Tubular by ShadeArt
side post parasol with vertical, slim, round mast in hand polished 316
Nautica Tubular is a truly spectacular side post parasol crafted by
hand in ShadeArt UK workshops from marine grade 316 stainless, then hand polished to a
beautiful mirror finish. Originally designed for the luxury yachting world, yet
equally at home by the pool or terrace. The Nautica mirror
stainless parasols or umbrellas have a vertical, slim 60mm
diameter round, high strength, stainless steel mast which makes them highly
corrosion resistant and ideal for smaller spaces. The standard 360˚ rotation
allows the canopy to be moved to follow the sun or to sit to the side when not
in use. For optimal space saving, also available with an optional,
articulated boom which folds back on itself.
Nautica Tubular’s custom
mirror stainless winch and internal cabling is also a work of art. The removable winder handle ensures ease of use and added safety as it
prevents unwanted tampering. The canopy
frames are made from high strength marine anodised aluminium and stainless,
ensuring that every element is corrosion resistant. Canopies are hand
tailored in the UK from a selection of over 80 colours of Europe’s finest
The Nautica Tubular side post
or cantilevered parasol comes in a selection of sizes, shapes and colours with
options including the articulated boom, heating, lighting, and perimeter
