Storm Portable by ShadeArt

Strong, robust and corrosion resistant, ideal for daily in/out setup portable umbrella or parasol.

Storm C Portable masts are fabricated from high strength stainless steel, also known as inox, which is then bead blasted to a beautiful silver satin finish. This ensures a durable, corrosion resistant and virtually maintenance free mast and means No rust and No paint to chip or flake. Stainless steel means this is a much stronger parasol than the aluminium versions generally on offer and can also come in a brushed or hand polished finish.

Storm C Portable canopy frames are made from high strength, marine anodised spokes, all securely bolted to a solid cast and anodised alloy hub. Canopies are tailored from low maintenance, architectural grade high tensile PVC membranes. This is one of the strongest (if not strongest) and most robust centre post parasols and umbrellas anywhere in the world.


The potable can be on a free-standing pedestal base that is concrete weighted or it can be bolted to a deck or concrete spigot or attached to our new hinge lid bayonet anchor which allows for easy removal and stowing.

The purpose built and maintenance free gearbox is coupled to a marine anodised drive so the canopy is opened and closed with ease - simply insert the winder and turn. The removable handle prevents unwanted tampering.


Canopies come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes. They provide optimum protection from the suns’ heat and harmful UV rays and are perfect for year-round wet weather cover. With sizes ranging from 1.9 x 1.9 m to 3.5 x 3.5 metres.


Storm C Portable was originally designed for Australia then perfected and manufactured in England by ShadeArt.


SHADEmakers UK proudly supply to all sectors within the UK and abroad. This parasol or umbrella is ideally suited for resorts, museums, golf courses, schools, hotels, cruise liners, super yachts, and private homes - virtually anywhere a strong, durable, and attractive shade solution is required. With proper care, will provide years and decades of service unlike many inferior parasols in use today.
