Commercial Outdoor Umbrellas

Why are commercial outdoor umbrellas such a popular shade solution for all kinds of commercial, educational, aged care, restaurant and cafe premises?

⛱ Instant, portable, versatile and affordable
⛱ Shade where and when you need it
⛱ Council compliant – they are classified as a temporary structure 
⛱ Extend outdoor area and increase revenue with greater table capacity
⛱ Improve street appeal 
⛱ Free marketing for your business
⛱ Highly visible – attract new customers
⛱ Protect customers and staff from sun and rain 
⛱ Long lasting asset – instantly adds value to your property

Commercial umbrellas are an affordable and versatile alternative to pergolas, awnings and permanent roof structures, especially ideal for businesses that are renting premises and don’t want to invest in a permanent shade solution. 

You can instantly change your level of shade or the angle of your shade and, depending on the fabric you choose, you’ll also enjoy protection from rain and hail as well as the sun. 

All Creative Canvas commercial umbrellas are designed and made right here in Australia to withstand our harsh climates. Choose from a wide colour range in the highest quality materials, designed to ensure durability.

Our range of commercial outdoor umbrellas include:

  • Side post umbrellas – that rotate and tilt to change the angle of shade as the sun moves, ideal for childcare centres, aged care facilities, resorts, cafes and restaurants looking for versatile shade solutions.
  • Centre post umbrellas – can be stabilised by either a mobile or fixed base and are designed to fit in the centre of outdoor cafe and restaurant tables.

Commercial side post umbrellas

Perfect for commercial outdoor premises where space is at a premium, our commercial cantilever umbrellas eliminate the need for central umbrella poles and bases. Side post cantilever umbrellas allow you to maximise the number of tables and customers you can seat in your outdoor dining areas.

Our revolving and tilting cantilever umbrellas allow you to change the angle of shade according to the movement of the sun, protecting your clientele and premises from the heat and the glare of early morning or late afternoon sun.

Side post umbrellas can also be linked or cantilevered off a single pole to provide maximum shade protection, and can be used as a marketing tool or to help your cafe stand out from the crowd with your logo or brand screen printed onto the umbrellas.

Sleek and Stylish Retractable Centre Post Skyspan Sola

The sleek and stylish Skyspan Sola is a popular choice for hotels and club outdoor dining and entertainment areas, offering three different canopy options:

  • Fixed Canopy – removes the cost of the retractable mechanism and is recommended for sheltered, light to medium wind zones with occasional high wind exposure.

Sola’s retractable canopies are operated by an easy-to-use hand wound operating system with a removable handle. This locks the umbrella into position, preventing unauthorised operation and keeping your patrons, staff, and umbrella safe, whatever the weather.
