Parasol Description

The Storm S (Side post) and Storm C (Centre post) range of parasols are purpose designed and engineered so they can remain open virtually year round in winds and gusts of up to 70mph / 112kph. The Storm range is the giant or heavy weight of wind rated, commercial grade, side and centre post parasols and umbrellas - Australian & UK designed and manufactured by ShadeArt, in their purpose built parasol and umbrella factory, located in Hertfordshire, England.

Our Storm range, is one of the strongest (if not strongest) and most robust side and centre post range of parasols/umbrellas anywhere in the world. SHADEmakers UK proudly supply these to all sectors; within the UK and abroad. We also export throughout the world. Storm parasols are 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. Storm is low maintenance and with proper care, will provide years and decades of service unlike many inferior parasols in use today. SHADEmakers UK have a design and engineering team who can work with architects, designers and specifiers to assist in developing shade solutions specific to your project needs. For a list of Storm attributes and options please read the detailed section below - "advantages".
