Why We Love Cantilever Umbrellas (And You Should, Too!)

Why We Love Cantilever Umbrellas (And You Should, Too!)

At Ashadya Shade Sails & Blinds, we love cantilever umbrellas – we always recommend them as the best choice when it comes to outdoor umbrellas. And there are many good reasons behind this too.

If you’re looking to purchase outdoor Sydney umbrellas and you’re trying to decide which umbrella to buy, give cantilever umbrellas serious thought. To help you understand why cantilever umbrellas are so great, here are some of the reasons why we love them so much.

1. They are easy to setup

While cantilever umbrellas may look more complex than the standard outdoor umbrella, they are quite easy to set up and operate. They can easily be installed as wall-mounted units or with the help of an upright supporting base. Because of this, our team can install cantilever umbrellas in just about any location without facing too many hassles.

You should note that cantilever umbrellas are so easy to set up that you can even do it on your own -without any professional help. All you need to do is to set up the base or wall-mounting unit, fix the umbrella frame and dress the canopy. These umbrellas include a quick release sliding system for opening and closing, which facilitates installation with minimum effort. The gas strut ensures balanced and very light operation. There is no heavy lifting.

2. They offer 360° shade

Standard outdoor umbrellas cannot be adjusted. Because of this, they provide shade only at a fixed angle. This can be a problem because the angle of shade varies with the movement of the sun throughout the day.

On the other hand, cantilever umbrellas can be rotated to change the angle of the shade. Our customers love cantilever umbrellas because they can be rotated to offer 360° shade. We even have a tilting version. By choosing a cantilever umbrella over a standard outdoor umbrella, you can enjoy a cool, shaded area regardless of the angle of the sun.

3. They come in a range of styles and shapes

While standard outdoor umbrellas have centre posts, cantilever umbrellas are mounted to the side, so the mast does not restrict movement under the umbrella canopy.

Cantilever umbrellas come in a range of styles with the most common canopy shapes square, or octagonal shapes. And, cantilever umbrellas come in different size and fabric colour options as well.

Regardless of whether you’re looking for an outdoor umbrella for domestic or commercial use, a cantilever umbrella will enhance the ambience and add a classy look. Ashadya Shade Sails & Blinds can even incorporate custom branding on our cantilever umbrellas. With us around, you needn’t look for outdoor umbrellas elsewhere in Sydney – we can offer you an aesthetically pleasing cantilever umbrella.

4. They offer excellent sun protection

High-quality cantilever umbrellas, such as ours at Ashadya Shade Sails & Blinds are capable of offering up to 99% UVR protection. This is because our range of cantilever umbrellas is manufactured using top-grade shade fabrics. Unlike standard outdoor umbrellas that may use inferior grade fabrics, all of our umbrellas offer excellent sun protection.


We (as well as our customers) love cantilever umbrellas, and there are several reasons behind this. Cantilever umbrellas are easy to set up, they are capable of offering 360° shade, they come in a range of shapes, sizes and styles and they offer excellent sun protection.
