Heavy Duty Commercial Umbrellas

Project Shade’s low-maintenance Heavy Duty umbrellas are the strongest in our suite of umbrella products. Sometimes referred to as “commercial umbrellas” or “industrial umbrellas”, they are the right choice when the ultimate protection against the elements is needed in a commercial environment, without compromising on design and style. They are excellent for situations where your shade product needs to meet specific codes and standards or compliance, such as in commercial settings.

All of our Heavy Duty umbrellas are low-maintenance, and come in a variety of sizes (up to 8m x 8m!), and you can choose from either square or octagonal canopies.
