Vortex hexagonal 4m parasol is British designed and  manufactured to the highest standards by British craftsmen. The Vortex 4m hexagonal parasol has a precision engineered 316 marine grade stainless steel frame which has been tested to achieve BS EN13782:2005 – Windspeed >100kmh. The Vortex frame is fitted with a high tensile PVC fabric canopy which is highly durable, designed for year round shade and shelter. The parasol is simple to open and close but is strong enough to be left open in all but the most fiercest conditions.

The tensile 4m hexagonal canopy is constructed from the world class Serge Ferrari pvc fabrics – Ferrari 502 Satin & Stam 6002. The 502 satin has a smooth finish, whilst the Stam 6002 has a slightly embossed surface. 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’.

The Vortex hexagonal 4m centre pole parasol 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 Vortex Parasol requires minimal maintenance.


The Vortex Parasol has a versatile range of bases allowing installation almost anywhere. Inground 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.


Inground bases: Cover Plates enable cover for the Inground Base if the parasol is removed – includes countersunk screws.

Deck Plate: fit your Vortex parasol to a reinforced timber deck or existing concrete base.

Freestanding Bases: Select the 316 Marine Grade Brushed Stainless Steel Base Cover to improve the aesthetics of  the Freestanding Base. Add the Marine Grade Cushion (20 colours available) for comfort.

Lights & Heating: Select the Solamagic 2 Heaters & Lights or Solamagic 4 Heaters & Lights bundle to turn your parasol into a 365 day rain & shade solution! The Solamagic heaters emit shortwave infrared which provides a consistent delightful heat unaffected by wind.  The bundles include the equipment to mount the heaters & lights to the parasol. We also have individual heaters & components available for you to build your own add-on list.

Gutter Sections: Interconnect adjacent Vortex Parasol with gutter sections to increase your seamless covered area. Velcro fixing – gutter sections must be ordered with your Vortex parasol a factory fitting of the velcro fastening is essential.

Side Sheets: enclose your Vortex parasol or group of parasols with side sheets. Side sheets are colour matched to your parasol, each made with a  clear pvc window section. Side sheets are available in standard or long lengths (for freestanding bases/extended poles). Infill Panels are available to fully enclose parasols 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.

Customisation: We are able to make ‘Frame Modifications’ to the heights of the poles – up to 500mm longer. ‘Coloured frames’ can also be ordered – we can powder coat Square & Hexagonal parasol frames to any RAL colour. Please get in contact if you wish to make these modifications. Don’t worry, we can help if you are unsure!
