Tempest & Tempest Grand


Tempest  (standard) & Tempest Grand (giant) centre post commercial parasols and umbrellas, originally imported from Germany with most now made in the UK. As they are telescopic, when the canopy closes it goes upwards to clear most tables and furniture.


Tempest masts are fabricated from high strength alloys, then protected with a prime and durable and easy clean powder coat finish. Standard colours are white or anthracite, or available with optional frame colours to your choosing. The wigwam spokes are manufactured from high tensile aluminium coupled to welded alloy hubs. The Tempest Grand uses larger and heavier components in line with the needs of a giant parasol or umbrella. Tempest comes with an internal gearbox for easy open and close. Simply insert the crank and wind the handle to open.  


Tempest canopies are hand tailored in the UK from a selection of over 80 colours of Europe’s finest solution dyed acrylic fabrics.


Tempest sizes from Square 2.0x2.0 to 5.0x5.0, Rectangle 3.0x2.0 to 5.0x4.5 and Octagonal 2.5 to 5.0 metres


Tempest Grand sizes from Square 4.0x4.0 to 7.5x7.5, Rectangle 6.0x3.0 to 9.0x8.0 and Octagonal 5.5 to 9.0 metres


Create large outdoor rooms by linking multiple parasols with gutters and side sheets. Comfortable for all seasons when fitted with optional heating, lighting, and sound.
