Tellus Tubular by ShadeArt


Discreet and slim stainless side post parasol ideal for tight spaces


Tellus Tubular side post parasols or umbrellas have a vertical, slim 60mm diameter (Ø) round, high strength, stainless steel mast which makes them corrosion resistant and ideal for smaller spaces. This parasol from ShadeArt, comes standard with 360˚ rotation allowing the canopy to be moved to follow the sun or to the side when not in use. An optional articulated boom which folds back on itself when not in use - ideal for compact spaces where storage is limited.


Taking its name from the Latin word for earth, Tellus Tubular is a spin off from the Nautica range, which was developed for the super yacht and coastal resort markets. The Tellus Tubular is more likely to be found on land than at sea although it borrows many design and style elements from its mirror polished, nautical cousin.


As with all ShadeArt parasols and umbrellas, Tellus Tubular has a custom stainless winch, internal cabling and a removable winder handle that ensures ease of use and the added safety feature that prevents unwanted tampering. Tellus Comes in a selection of sizes, shapes and colours with options including the articulated boom, heating, lighting, and branding and can be installed either permanently or to a pedestal base.
