The parasol without compromise
The Vortex is a no compromise solution for elegant, durable shade and shelter. Designed and developed with the customer in mind, Vortex is the solution for customers who don't want to spend time, money and effort managing and maintaining parasols.
Vortex parasols deliver everything you want from a parasol, all year round. From shade in the long summer days, to shelter and warmth on the darkest winter evenings, Vortex parasols are engineered to withstand the elements all year round.
Precision engineered in Britain, control over the delivery and the quality of the Vortex parasols is retained. With short lead times and very simple installation, Vortex parasols can be deployed quickly and easily.
With an ever-growing range of installation options and accessories such as heating, lighting, cooling systems, speakers and TVs, Vortex parasols are providing shade and shelter, warmth, cooling and entertainment to customers around the world.
The All Weather, Year-Round Parasol
The Vortex parasol is designed to be left up and open all year round. Manufactured in the UK, using state-of-the-art precision engineering machinery to guarantee quality and superior finishing, the Vortex Parasol has been specifically designed to withstand extreme weather conditions.
The Vortex Parasol is the only parasol in the UK BS certified to withstand wind speeds in excess of 100km/h. This makes the Vortex Parasol the parasol of choice for outdoor areas such as schools, restaurants, hotels, pub gardens, market areas, patios and alfresco dining areas.
All frames are made from 316 grade stainless steel, selected for its strength, durability and resistance to tarnishing.

Choose from a selection of base and mounting options - in-ground, above ground, or matching your decor.
In-ground parasol bases provide a permanent fixing and are the best method of installation. Alternatively, deck mount or free-standing parasol base options are available for installation almost anywhere. The Fast Bar is the ideal solution to provide a free standing pole-mounted table to Vortex parasols.
VORTEX Parasol Canopies
