Cantilever Umbrellas – Make the most of your outdoor space


When you have a great outdoor space, you’ll want to spend as much time as possible out there. There are often a few weather adjacent elements that can create an uncomfortable environment that isn’t conducive to outdoor enjoyment.

Heat, rain and wind can be detrimental to enjoyment and reduce the amount of use you can get out of your backyard.  At Shadowspec Umbrellas, we’re problem solvers and our team of outdoor specialists are trained to help you with the best backyard shade ideas. 

The best outdoor umbrella.

Chris is a business owner based in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. He approached one of our agents to solve his shade problem. His outdoor space is a premium spot that he can enjoy with his young family but the searing heat of the New Zealand summer was making it hard to enjoy the space for too long.  The solution to Chris’ problem was to install a Shadowspec Unity™ Quattro umbrella above the in-ground spa pool. The Unity™ is a great spa pool umbrella thanks to its modular design. The ability to mount up to 4 canopy frames off one mast gives Chris and his family the ability to shape their shade for the day.


Shadowspec Unity™ The Evolution of Shade.

The Quattro has enabled Chris to cover both his outdoor lounge suite and in-ground spa pool with additional shade over the patio and grass area where the kids can play. Creating a space where the family can experience memories together. When you look over the photos of the project you can see that the Unity has provided a real finishing touch that elevates and enhances the setting.

Easy to use outdoor shade.

ShadowSpecThe exceptional build quality of the marine grade Shadowspec Unity is perfect for top homes and fits the aesthetic of the private pool, tennis court and spa. Chris also installed the optional rain gutters to ensure the space was usable when a typical New Zealand summer shower blows through to ensure the outdoor enjoyment doesn’t slow down.

Brilliant product, brilliant design.

Chris describes the solution as brilliant. Creating a backyard space with outdoor cantilever umbrellas that are easy to use is a great way to improve your lifestyle and ensure you get the most out of the space.
