Cantilever Umbrellas


The Iconic Cantilever Umbrella

Do you need some shade but cannot fit a pole in the centre of your outdoor seating area? Cantilever umbrellas (side post umbrellas), provide a clear space underneath the canopy without the need for a centre pole. Ideal for a more inclusive patio or restaurant setting as there are no umbrella masts blocking the conversation and with the multi-canopy, with up to four canopies.

The Shadowspec Serenity™ and Shadowspec Unity™ are strong cantilever umbrellas that use gas-strut ‘Easy-Lift’ technology for effortless deployment every time. There are no ropes, pulleys, or winding crank systems that take time to deploy or have internal mechanisms that can break down. These two cantilever umbrella models only take seconds to deploy.

Mounting options for cantilever umbrellas
A portable cantilever umbrella base ensures you can change your layout. Move it from the pool to over the spa or around different table setting configurations. The in-ground and surface cantilever umbrella mount are more permanent so are better suited to alfresco dining areas, decks or patios.
