Terrafirma Single by ShadeArt

An especially elegant, strong, and durable side post parasol from natural timbers and stainless or all stainless.

Designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom by ShadeArt, the commercial range of Terrafirma Single side post (cantilevered) parasols and umbrellas, meet the highest quality and style standards and are suitable for both residential and commercial installations.

The fusion of laminated timber and aluminium masts with stainless steel booms or all stainless mast and booms, makes for a beautiful and highly functional piece of outdoor furniture. Terrafirma Single parasols and umbrellas can provide year-round shade and rain protection as well as adding colour and design flair to your outdoor setting.

Available in a wide selection of colours, sizes, shapes, and canopy styles, with optional heating, light, sound, and branding, the Terrafirma Single can be installed either permanently or to a pedestal base.

Easy for the customer to assemble and operate, requiring minimal maintenance and especially durable. With proper care and maintenance, this beautiful parasol will outlast any similar umbrella available on the world market today.
