Cantilever umbrellas are increasing in popularity due to their practicality over the alternative, the centre pole umbrella. With cantilever umbrellas, the pole is offset, meaning they cast shade away from the pole, allowing you to enjoy a wider shaded area. They also rotate around the pole, giving you a lot more control over where your shade is and allows you to move it with the sun over the day.
There are other options for shade, read about other types of shade here.
Read some of our customer's real life reviews about the Shadowspec umbrellas to help you make a decision on whether to purchase. Easy to use
We have really enjoyed our umbrella thank you, leaving it up every day while we were at home. It created a good cool and welcoming space to sit under. As you know I am not the tallest, and yet I have found the umbrella easy to use and even, to return the cover to the umbrella for folding away. Having the rod in the cover to lift it up over the umbrella is a very clever innovation. It has met our expectations and we are thrilled with the quality and ease of use, thank you! - Mary Ferguson, Whangarei
Quality outdoor umbrella
Very efficient dealings throughout, and a great product. We chose the product because of the hydraulic ram, rather than a wind up system others have. - Scott Stevens, Queenstown
The best quality product I could find following lengthy research via the Internet. - Doug McIntyre - Sydney, NSW

Absolutely loving our Shadowspec umbrellas! Perfect shade for a tricky balcony...... and better still they fold up so neatly - still allowing for maximum space. Nicole Roughley - Facebook

Range of Options
I would just like to briefly compliment your team’s outstanding help, service and supplying of a brilliant product. I have never seen anything quite like your SU6 umbrella range. The Duo we have purchased from you is ideal – the rectangular covered area created by the double umbrellas fits perfectly and the ease of which they can be deployed and lowered is amazing. I only saw the product in the brochure so have to admit was a little dubious not having seen the product in real life. However the product far surpasses what your sales team told me or I had even hoped. Once again thanks for everything and congratulations on having created such a fantastic product. - Terrence Matthews - Perth, WA
The umbrella has been working a treat in this hot weather and successfully withstood 34 knot southerly gusts yesterday. - C. Harrison – Newcastle
First time erected and its was a very windy weekend and they stood up to it very well, and easy to erect. - Kerry Bradley, NZ
Shadowspec Service & After Sales Care
I recently ordered an umbrella from Shadowspec. We used the custom colour option. The service I received was second to none. The umbrella was delivered to me in a timeframe I didn't think possible and I was kept well informed all along the way. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this company and their umbrellas to future customers. - Ryland Fraser - Sydney, NSW
