The Heritage garden parasol is made from hardwood and has a solution dyed polyester canvas that protects you from the sun. Although it comes at an incredible price, the designers have not given up on quality. Sturdily crafted and attractive in its simplicity, Heritage brings a peaceful serenity to your outdoor oasis.
This parasol is designed with a single pulley system (Brass Pully) to raise the frame and ribs. To open it, just pull the longer end of the ‘anti-fray’ cord until the ribs open and extend the membrane at maximum. Secure the hub using the metallic pin provided (see the image gallery).
To close it, remove the pin and pull the other end of the rope until the frame collapses. We recommend to all our clients to keep their parasol closed when not in use.
The frame and pole – are made entirely from hardwood, meaning that the timber used has a higher density to enhance durability and strength of the structure. The securing pin, the connector and all the metallic parts are made from steel.
(*) Hardwood is used for producing high quality furniture and flooring. This material is obtained from trees which lose their leaves annually and are slower growing – making the wood denser.
The canopy – Made using standard dyed polyester, it is a great choice for limited budgets. It is fade, tear and rot resistant and comes with a 1-year warranty. If you store your parasol properly it should last far more.
(*) If you need to install the parasol on a commercial area, don’t forget to print the canopy with your venue’s logo to make your brand more visible. Don’t forget that the canopy is like a wide canvas and it’s the most visible part of the parasol. We offer this service at Shade Specialists, just call us and let us know.
If your hardwood parasol will be positioned on a patio or pub/café terrace and it will run through the central hole of a garden table, we suggest a 30 kg base (granite or concrete). The table will provide extra stability against wind, meaning that a lighter base will be sufficient.
If the parasol will be freestanding, like on the side of a pool, or a balcony, then we recommend purchasing a heavier base of 50 kg, to make sure the wind won’t blow away the umbrella.

Polyester Canopy Cover Material
The standard, piece dyed polyester is the entry level parasol canopy and one you will find most commonly on parasols available on the high street. The standard polyester is a great option if you’re working on a budget. While it only comes with a 1 year warranty, if looked after, it should last well beyond that.
Polyester offers customers:
- Polyester is a strong fibre, resistant to creasing and keeps its shape.
- Polyester is piece dyed meaning the thread is only coloured on the outside of the canopy, like a radish!
- Offers an affordable alternative to Spuncrylic
- Shade Specialists only offer polyester covers in two natural colours, beige and natural as darker, stronger colours would be more susceptible to fading over time.
