White 502 satin is our stock canopy. The 40 colours in 502 Satin & 12 colours Stam 6002 are made to order with a 4 week lead-time. See details below: ‘Chose Custom Colours’.

Ferrari 502 Satin (10 year limited warranty) or Ferrari 6002 Stam (5 year limited warranty). The fabric is ideally suited for most climatic conditions, is easy to clean and will ensure years of service.

Ferrari 502 Satin is a preferred architectural element of choice available in a wide range of colours to ensure creative variety, high-performance protection against heat and bad weather, unmatched strength and great resistance to dirt.

STAM 6002 composite material is distinctive due to its unique grainy aspect, recalling woven textile. Its matt finish minimises unwanted reflection.

Ferrari 502 Satin and Stam 6002 are 100% waterproof, recyclable, fire-rated, resistant to UV radiation and dirt.

Parasols with printing can be ordered with no minimum order quantity.

The Build Your Own: Vortex 2.8m Gazebo has been built to meet commercial requirements – as a ‘put up and forget’ solution. Providing shelter in the winter months & shade with UV protection in the summer. Select ‘Accessories’ to add-on lighting & electric infrared heating to ensure this parasol enables 365 all year alfresco dining. The Build Your Own: Vortex 2.8m Gazebo requires minimal maintenance.


The Vortex Parasol has a versatile range of bases allowing installation almost anywhere. In-ground bases incased in concrete poured on site provide a permanent fixing. Alternatively, bolt the Parasol down using the deck plate to an existing solid concrete base or into the joists of a  heavy duty timber deck. A Freestanding base is available complete with pre cut concrete slabs for weighting. When fitting Light & Heating accessories to the Vortex thought must be given to the provision of an underground power supply which should be routed into the parasol mast from below ground level.


Lights & heating: Select Vortex Solamagic Heaters & Lights Bundle bundles to turn your Gazebo into a 365 day rain & shade solution! The Solamagic heaters emit shortwave infrared which provides a consistent heat unaffected by wind. The bundles include the equipment to mount the heaters & lights to the gazebo canopy frame. We also have individual heaters & components available for you to build your own add-on list.

Gutter sections: Interconnect adjacent Vortex Gazebo’s with gutter sections to increase your seamless covered area. Velcro fixing. Gutter sections must be ordered with your Vortex parasol as factory fitting of the velcro fastenings is essential.

Side Sheets: Enclose your Vortex Gazebo or group of gazebo’s with side sheets. Side sheets are colour matched to your gazebo, each made with a clear pvc window section. Side sheets are available in standard or long lengths (for freestanding bases/extended poles). Side Sheet Infill are available to fully enclose gazebo’s connected by a gutter. When ordering side sheets as a one off order a 25% surcharge will apply to prices noted.

General Maintenance: Green PVC Cover Bag with zip for fabric protection when parasol is closed. Cleaning Kit to keep the Vortex parasol looking at it’s best. Mast Clamp which is required for parasols kept closed for long periods.
