This is the ultimate solution for alfresco dining and smoking areas providing both shade and shelter all year round.
The new VorTex is a venture into an area few other manufacturers dare to go - high tensile,high strength parasols.

Frame structure manufactured from 304 stainless steel the VorTex is designed to be left up and open all year round (well, except when we get the very extreme weather!)
The VorTex is fitted with market leading Ferrari PVC fabric which provides the added benefit of being fire retardant.
The VorTex can be easily opened and closed.
- In Ground Base | For permanent fixing of the VorTex parasols. provides the best stability for the product. Electrical cables should be run through the ground through the ground base, completely hiding them.
- Deck Mount | Flat steel plate to be bolted to an existing solid surface. This provides a permanent fix in situations where it is not possible to install a ground base.
- Mobile base | Large steel base with concrete slabs. This allows a non permanent fix and although very heavy this installation does allow the parasol to be moved.
- Existing ground bases | It is possible to install VorTex parasols into existing parasol bases from a number of manufacturers. Any ground base designed to accept a pole diameter of 76mm and more can be catered for. We can modify the parasol here to allow installation to existing ground bases.
Please note that any warranty does not cover damage caused by failure of the existing ground base or bolts.
VorTex parasols are fitted with Ferrari 502 PVC.
We have white fabric available, in stock available for immediate delivery.
Please check with us as limited numbers of other colors may also be available.
40 Color options are available on reasonable lead times.
Heating, lighting and electrical options
Electric can be added by a qualified electrician. We have designed the product with this in mind and it is easy to have electric IR heaters and / or lights fitted to the VorTex. This is best done prior to installation to ensure that the cables can be hidden correctly.
Heating - We offer high grade Solamagic, Burda and Tansun heaters. For fully integrated heating we offer a heater hub to allow the connection of up to 4 heaters.
Heaters can also be retro fitted to parasols that have already been installed, using our retro fitted heaters with either 2 or 4 heaters.
Lighting - Is pole mounted, using a light ring with 4 adjustable spot lights. These are supplied as standard with 50W standard bulbs but we are also able to offer an upgrade to coloured LED bulbs.
Control and switching - We have available wireless remote switching units, to be able to independently control the heaters and the lights.
Cabling and enclosures - are available. In order to make electricians installation simpler we have cabling and enclosures to the right size and specification.
This technology can provide users a number of benefits over conventional switching options.
Wireless switches can be placed anywhere, even behind a bar, with no disruption to trade whilst the electrician chases in cables.
Other options - as there is no winder mechanism taking up space inside the pole, the potential options for other entertainment systems are almost limitless.
It is possible to add speaker cable within the parasol and speakers high up inside the canopy.
Outdoor LCD screens could be added and mounted to the pole. With careful shielding of any electrical and aerial cables it would be possible to have a TV feed piped directly to a couple of LCD screens mounted onto the center of the pole.
What better outdoor entertainment system?

VorTex umbrellas can be screen printed prior to production or have vinyl's attached once the parasol is installed.
