Spending summer in the backyard swimming pool is a quintessential Australian past-time. I know personally that my siblings and I would spend hours in our swimming pool every day as a kid. And, every single day, our mum would nag us about applying sunscreen.
As a parent, I can now understand her concern. We want our kids to spend wholesome time at home, off their Xbox, off TikTok, YouTube, or whatever the current fab is, which is why swimming pools are such an excellent investment. But, on the other hand, we want to know our kids are safe from the sun’s harmful UV Rays, which can often be unavoidable if you’re not around to remind them to apply sunscreen constantly.
Investing in a swimming pool umbrella in Sydney from Ashadya Australia solves this problem and many others. Whether you’re looking to protect your kids while they play in the pool or create a cool poolside sitting area to relax or entertain friends this summer, a swimming pool umbrella is the best solution.

Benefits Of Swimming Pool Umbrellas
Swimming pool umbrellas offer many benefits to Sydney residential and commercial customers, such as hotels and Aquatic Centres. The most significant benefits are listed below:
Excellent Sun protection
The whole point of investing in a swimming pool umbrella in Sydney is to provide sun protection, so you can bet the swimming pool umbrellas offered by Ashadya Australia are at the top of their game in terms of the sun protection they offer.
Our swimming pool umbrellas offer extensive shade coverage in a range of sizes and shapes. Depending on the type and style of the umbrella, you can cover an area up to 36m2 in size. See Variety of Styles & Designs for more information regarding size and coverage.
High UV protection
To provide sun protection is one thing, but it’s the quality of the sun protection which matters the most. The higher the UV protection, the lesser the chances of you or your children getting sunburn from spending extended hours in or by the pool.
Our swimming pool umbrellas offer as much as 100% UV blockout protection and UPF of 50+ – these are vital ingredients in protecting our skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. You can rest assured knowing your kids will be well protected under the shade of an Ashadya Australia swimming pool umbrella.
Swimming pool umbrellas are designed to be very easy to use. While some, like our CE Heavy Duty Umbrella, are fixed in position and require no operation at all, others like our cantilever umbrellas, our UNITY Multi Mast Cantilever Umbrella, Serenity Rotating Cantilever Umbrella, and Vista Umbrella, are very easy to operate.
Cantilever umbrellas are ideal for pool locations because you can open and close them quickly, which comes in very handy in sudden storm conditions. You can also rotate the umbrella’s canopy as required, meaning you can match the sun’s movement to provide shade throughout the day.
Swimming pool umbrellas need to be high in quality, which is guaranteed in the range offered by Ashadya Australia. They need to not only be manufactured to the highest levels, but they also need to be made from the best fabrics and materials.
Our swimming pool umbrellas are manufactured from the most robust and durable materials and are backed by impressive warranties for your peace of mind.
Sydney often experiences winds over 100km/hr, and you want to know that your umbrella isn’t going to fail you and turn out to be a bad investment. The swimming pool umbrellas offered by Ashadya Australia are wind-rated umbrellas. They’re made and tested to withstand wind events to ensure guaranteed longevity.
As mentioned, our CE Heavy Duty Umbrellas are fixed in position. However, our range of cantilever swimming pool umbrellas feature portable bases, which means, along with rotating the canopy, you can also move the entire umbrella effortlessly to provide shade in another location.
The portable wheeled base options offer complete customised manoeuvrability. They are perfect for those wanting to shade a patio, sun lounges, or outdoor setting when the pool is not in use.
Variety of Styles & Designs
Whether you have a moderate budget or no budget at all, you’re sure to find a suitable style swimming pool umbrella to meet your location and price point requirements. We have umbrellas that can withstand as much as 148km/hr winds, solutions to shade large areas, and cost-effective options.
Each type of umbrella comes in various shapes and sizes, fabric options, and customisation options to ensure you find the perfect solution for your needs and budget.
