We offer unbiased advice on the best cost-effective installation. We will work closely with your preferred contractors or can provide a full service solution to ensure your parasol installation is professionally installed and meets all building and legislative requirements if applicable.


Having made an investment in a quality shade solution you need to be sure that you can get continued support and service. All parasol canopies, frames and components can be repaired or replaced, ensuring that your parasol investment will last a long time.


We have in-house facilities including TIG and MIG welding plants, a high precision lathe, milling, cutting, pressing and drilling equipment that enables us to precision engineer the frames and accessories. Coupled with an extensive array of finishing machinery, we can achieve a high-quality finish on our Vortex range.


Keep your parasol canopies looking fresh and new with a regular cleaning service. We can clean and re-treat any synthetic canvas fabrics, such as Dickson Orchestra, Polyombra and other heavy duty acrylics. Please contact us for more information and pricing.
