Architectural Umbrellas – Permanent Commercial Umbrellas
Architectural umbrellas offer versatile solutions for both shade and waterproofing. These umbrellas are designed to form a permanent protection solution as they have a structurally engineered frame and high quality canopy which is fabricated from architectural PVC.
There are two main configurations – a central post and side post. Depending on the site constraints and key users of the site, we can advise on which designs could be most effective for the site. The vast majority of umbrellas we install are even sided i.e. 4m x 4m or 5m x 5m however, we can also customise the dimensions to the site.
Umbrellas are a great way to add visual impact to a cafe or a commercial site. By utilising a range of high light transmission PVC supplied by Hiraoka and the benefits of some internal lighting, architectural umbrellas can form an advertising beacon. Umbrellas can also be linked together for extra impact, with the canopy forming one continuous length to prevent a gap between each umbrella.
Both frames and canopies are available in a wide variety of colours.
