Shade Forever Powerbrellas are made completely from stainless steel and use a unique gas powered open and close mechanism which is free of pulleys, pins, cranks or latches.
This makes them stylish, simple to use and virtually maintenance free!
Finger-light to operate - gently lift the arms and they open, as if by magic. Simply pull down the central hub and the umbrella will close and stay closed.
Originating from South Africa, the Shade Forever Powerbrella has been designed to last, using heavy duty materials and innovative design.
The Shade Forever Powerbrella range comes in three sizes with centre-pole and cantilever options.
Frequently asked questions about Shade Forever Powerbrellas.
How does the 'powerbrella' system work?
The opening and closing mechanism uses a gas lift to gently open and lock the umbrella to the open position. When ready to close, simply pull down on the central hub. A positive force of around 5kg will overcome the locked position, gently closing the umbrella.
What are the umbrellas made from?
The entire umbrella frame including the pole, arms, hub and fixings are made from highly polished 304 stainless steel.
This makes them strong and will keep them looking great and rust-free year after year.
How do you clean the umbrella?
The frame can be cleaned using normal domestic cleaning products. To avoid leaving marks on the mirror finish, dry thoroughly after cleaning.
Dirt can be brushed or wiped off the canopy. It can also be washed in a washing machine for a deeper clean.
can they be left outside?
Yes, the umbrella is designed to be used and stored outdoors. When not in use we recommend protecting with the supplied cover.
If my umbrella is damaged can it be repaired?
Whilst designed to be very hard wearing, if unexpected damage occurs, we can supply spare parts and assist in repairing your umbrella.
will a powerbrella withstand wind?
The Powerbrella work in normal wind conditions and are often used in coastal locations - although like all umbrellas should be closed in high winds.
