Long-Lasting Cantilever Umbrellas
Outdoor furnishings are exposed to the environment, so they must be constructed to function efficiently through varying temperatures, humidity and wind conditions. Innovative designs are only as good as the materials that go into them and the Serenity and Unity patio umbrellas are made from the best.
Shadowspec utilizes premium metals and textiles to ensure that each deck umbrella is durable and maintains its elegant appearance for many seasons. They incorporate 316 chromium stainless steel components with heat-treated high-grade aluminum frames that can withstand the harshest coastal elements. Each canopy is covered with the finest Sunbrella solution-dyed acrylic. This colorfast outdoor fabric resists water and protects against harmful UV rays.
Every Shadowspec umbrella is backed by the strongest quality guarantees in the industry.

Are Shadowspec umbrellas easy to clean and care for?
Shadowspec outdoor umbrellas are commercial-grade but you can extend their useful life and keep them looking great by keeping them clean and well-maintained.
