The Shadowspec brand has become the trusted provider of superior products and first-class support. 
Umbrellas are more than just a provider of shade - they reflect a certain lifestyle. With over 25 years of experience, we’ve learned there are three things our customers seek in an outdoor umbrella: ease of use, a fine design and resistance to whatever element nature has in store. Our ability to fuse these needs into one product makes our range of outdoor umbrellas unparalleled to the rest.

Testimonials from our valued customers

'We were drawn to being made in Aotearoa'

"We had only positive experiences when dealing with all the staff at Shadowspec beginning when searching on line, a quick response from Regan, our sales person, who answered the many, many questions we had appropriately, competently and confidently. We were drawn to being made in Aotearoa and suitability to our weather conditions. Then our AMAZING umbrella arrived. We use it so often, it has enhanced our outdoor area beautifully. So slick and simple to use, a stunning colour, and we’re thrilled we got the mobile option. We’ve even loaned it to our neighbours! Thank you Shadowspec." — Cath P
