Storm C (Centre post) by ShadeArt


Strong and robust parasol engineered for wind gusts up to 70mph / 112kph – can remain open virtually year-round. 


Storm C 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 then the aluminium versions generally on offer and can also come in a brushed or hand polished finish.


Storm C 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 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 6m2 up to 25m2, optional features include linking gutters for multiple canopies, rain sides, heating, lighting, sound, and branding.


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