Classic Umbrellas

Our Classic range of umbrellas are generally our most affordable, and are ideal for situations where limited spaces or budgets are key decision-making factors. While they are less expensive, as with all of Project Shade’s products, they are still of premium quality.

Classic Outdoor Umbrellas

Few things are more welcoming than a comfortable spot in the shade on a warm Australian day, whether you are entertaining family and friends at home, or inviting customers to stop for a coffee or meal. And we know that for cafe owners in particular,  this level of comfort can be the difference between people stopping for a quick take-away coffee or sitting down for brunch.

In assembling our suite of market and cafe umbrellas, the Project Shade team has partnered with highly respected manufacturers like the creators of hand-made Made in the Shade umbrellas, as well as those from Shadowspec. In doing so, we believe we have an unbeatable selection of shade umbrellas from which home, café, and restaurant owners can choose.

They tick so many boxes for domestic, market and café situations where versatility and movability are important.

Café owners particularly appreciate being able to carry their umbrellas in with their tables and chairs at the end of the day.

Market Stall Holders find set up and pack down with a market umbrella easier with an umbrella they can easily transport in the back of their cars.

Home Backyard

Home owners enjoy the flexibility of keeping their umbrellas outside (a protection cover can help increase your umbrella’s life outside), or to be able to bring it indoors when required.

Stable and Secure

The market umbrellas and cafe umbrellas in our Classic range are all easy to open and close, with commercial grade pulley systems. Although not generally wind-rated, they are still of commercial strength and ideal for a home or hospitality situation.  When partnered with an optional mobile/movable umbrella base, they can be positioned wherever you need them to be.

Looking Good for Longer

The canopies on our Classic umbrellas are designed to last, are mould and mildew resistant, and come in colours and patterns that are fade-resistant. To help protect them further when not in use, you have the option of purchasing a canopy cover, or simply remove the umbrella to indoors.

 Custom Branding Available

A Marketing Boost

We know how important branding is to a business, which is why we are pleased to offer screen printing of your brand, message, or logo onto your umbrella.

Choosing a canopy colour that fits with your branding will help to create a cohesive indoor/outdoor theme.
