Patio Umbrella

Large outdoor umbrellas for your patio canopy needs

A shade canopy for patios comes in various sizes. At Brisbane Giant Umbrellas, we offer octagon- and square-shaped umbrella options ranging from 2.5 meters (8.2 feet) to 6 meters (19.68 feet) for both residential and commercial clients.

If you are looking for a shade solution for an expansive outdoor area, giant patio umbrellas are your best choice. Umbrella or canopy products spanning more than 3.6 metres (12 feet) can provide overhead shading for a table with at least 10 people. The sun’s position and intensity, alongside your unique outdoor space set-up, can impact these shading capacity approximations. But you can customise it according to the size of the section you want to protect.

Large umbrellas have become ideal outdoor fixtures for commercial and residential properties because of their aesthetic and functional value. These stylish shade solutions provide protection and comfort from the sweltering heat and the pouring rain, allowing owners and guests to dine, have fun, and enjoy their time under the sun or any weather.

With its popularity, consumers face the challenge of picking the best option. Indeed, not every outdoor shade shelter is the same.

Patio umbrella shapes

Giant outdoor area umbrellas are sold in different shapes, and there’s no one-size-fits-all formula for finding the best configuration. Here are a few options you’ll find on the market, including valuable insights on how they enhance your outdoor space:

  • Octagonal umbrella: One of the most popular outdoor umbrella shapes, octagonal canopies are best used on a patio table, typically supported by a centre post that runs through the middle. You can also get this to provide shade to other sections of your outdoor space. Octagonal canopies are versatile, and you can place them in the centre or along the sides to add more visual interest and enhance the look of your angular patios.

  • Square umbrellas: Square-shaped outdoor giant umbrellas often offer better spatial coverage than their octagonal or round counterparts, and they work best if you place them along the edges of your exterior. As the sun changes position within the day, getting one with tilting and rotating mechanisms is best to optimise protection.

  • Rectangular umbrellas: Commercial properties often use a rectangular umbrella to cover an expansive and lengthy pool, as well as a garden, deck, backyard, dining, lounging, and other activity areas.

The shape of your large outdoor umbrella will depend on what it intends to cover, your space restrictions, and your design preferences. The experts at Brisbane Giant Umbrellas are glad to help you find the best size and shape for your outdoor space, and you can ask for a quote for free.

Patio umbrella materials

Global warming has permanently altered our weather conditions, resulting in hotter summers, more violent storms, and heavier rainfall. Your giant outdoor umbrella must be made from high-quality materials to withstand intense heat, strong wind, and heavy rainfall.

  • Frame: Brisbane Giant Umbrellas feature powder-coated aluminium frame materials capable of resisting rust, corrosion, and damage. The aluminium frame gives it an impressive wind rating of up to 100 kilometres per hour for a residential-grade canopy, showing relative strength amidst higher wind velocities.
  • Canopy: A canopy is the protective fabric section of a deck, pool, backyard, or patio umbrella that shields you, your guests, as well as your tables and chairs from UV rays, heat, and rain. We use durable materials like acrylic canvas, polyvinyl chloride-coated polyester, and Docril for our fabric. Our shade solution provides over 90% UV protection, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors, like your garden, deck, or backyard, without worrying about the sun or even the rain.
  • Base: The base of an umbrella for the outdoors, like a garden umbrella, is key to its strength and stability. Depending on the size and weight, the umbrella cover can be installed through the ground, bolted down, or held by a weighty umbrella base, such as cast iron. Our shade solution can be installed easily, regardless of whether it is done through the ground or other methods, but we also offer expert umbrella shelter installation services upon request.

Elevate your outdoor experience with canopies and roof using an aluminium frame, high-quality fabric, and solid umbrella base and create a shaded sanctuary in the outdoors that lasts.

Types of outdoor patio umbrellas

A large garden umbrella comes in different types, each with pros and cons. Knowing which aligns with your requirements and preferences is key to making the most of your investment.

  • Table umbrella: Also called a centre pole table canopy, it is common in a café, restaurant, garden, and pool with outdoor tables and chairs used for dining and drinking.

  • Tilting umbrella: This large canopy is versatile, enabling users to adjust the cover and allowing optimal protection regardless of the sun’s position. They’re either fixed for your guests’ convenience or mobile to cover more areas in your yard, balcony, or deck.

  • Cantilever umbrella: Unlike a centre pole table canopy, a cantilever umbrella is supported from the sides to avoid obstructions and maximise coverage. Cantilever umbrellas can be mounted and fixed on certain areas of patios or with a mobile base, depending on their size and weight. A cantilever umbrella mostly features a 360-degree rotation. They can be moved up, down, and on all sides, making a cantilever umbrella a popular choice for residential and commercial property owners with patios and decks.

At Brisbane Giant Umbrellas, we’re dedicated to offering a diverse range of outdoor umbrellas to cater to your individual preferences and needs. Whether you seek classic elegance, sun-seeking flexibility, or an unbounded roof for your patios and decks, our collection has the ideal beach, deck, balcony, or garden umbrella to transform your outdoor space.
