Cantilever umbrellas are easily identified by their side post rather than having a post in the centre like traditional outdoor umbrellas.

They provide the type of floating shade that gives more freedom of movement to those seated or lying under them.  Sometimes referred to as a “side post umbrella”, “offset umbrella”, or “pool umbrella”, our Cantilever umbrellas are modern in design and add style to any outdoor area.

Follow the Sun Flexibility

Perhaps the best feature of Project Shade’s Cantilever umbrella range is their flexibility of use.

Many models can rotate from their post making it possible to adjust the canopy to follow the sun, providing shade throughout the day.

Some models can tilt to give even more targeted shade.

Some of our Cantilever umbrellas can be wall-mounted.

While in the past Cantilever umbrellas were all permanently fixed, newer models offer free standing mobile bases.

Multi-Canopy Umbrellas

Depending on the coverage needed, you might consider a Cantilever umbrella with multiple canopies, all of which are mounted on the same pole. Having this option allows you to have coverage, for example, over an outdoor seating area as well as over a BBQ area - and they look sensational providing shade to poolside lounges without multiple umbrella poles impeding access.
