Cantilever Umbrellas

The advantage of a cantilever umbrella is that the post is offset to one side, therefore maximising the space underneath without interfering with seating arrangements and settings. They can be installed in both commercial and domestic situations and we offer a range of cantilever umbrellas to suit your situation.

In a domestic situation, cantilever umbrellas are a popular choice and often recommended for use around a pool or over an outdoor dining setting. The side post does not interfere with the area and remains unobtrusive whilst providing great shade coverage.

"Awning solves our problem with direct sunlight and difficulty with putting up any other kind of shade. Service was extremely good. Very prompt response, helpful advice and friendly approach. It was refreshing to deal with a supplier who responded straight away to our request and kept us regularly updated on progress."

Alice & Mark 

Folding Arm Awning

"After a number of alternative providers failed to attend scheduled quotation appointments we contact Tim at 4.00pm. Tim was immediately proactive and set an appointment at our house at 8.30 the next day. In the meantime, Tim mailed photographs to give us an indication of his work. True to his word, Tim attended and provided us a quote on the spot. Later that day we accepted and agreed on an installation date. The product was delivered and installed on the agreed date. We are very happy with Tim's service and advice, the product itself and the final result. We would recommend East Coast Shade Design, Thanks."

The service provided by Tim is exceptional.
