Because the sun constantly moves along would it not be nice to move your sun shade system too? Have the shade you require wherever you need it during the day.

The unique and patented Paraflex umbrella system provides the solution for so many situations in domestic and commercial applications. It removes the need for a heavy, clumbersome base and a central pole which is nearly always in the way by using a flexible side mounted arm to hold a specially adapted selection of high quality umbrellas. The flexible arm gives a massive wide arc of movement with the added benefit of a tilting function to help combat low early morning and late afternoon sun.

The Paraflex system has a superb modern design, is very robust mad from high grade aluminium and is still easy to handle and manage during the day giving far more sun protection ability than nearly every other umbrella and awning system available.

Why is the Paraflex unique?

The umbrella system is unique mainly due to its simple design principal. A full 180 degree of movement (or more when mounted on the pole or a corner) gives great flexibility for shading where required. It is highly adaptable because of the various poles and accessories available, which allows the Paraflex system to be installed onto almost any building. The idea for the Paraflex came from the simple idea of the human arm and hand held out in front, simple and effective!

The umbrella is easily mounted into the patented clamp system to be the same as a person holding a large umbrella over you and moving the position as required when the sun moves.

You can leave the complete umbrella fixed in the arm mounting system and place a special optional cover protection over or remove to store very easily as required.

Mounting Options

paraflex-wall-mounted-265wBasic Wall Mounting

The basic wall mount arm system is the perfect solution for most small terraces, patios and gardens.

The wall mounting bracket has a 300mm variance in height adjustment as standard and is mounted to the wall with 2 screws (not supplied). It is an aluminium section to which the umbrella holder is attached. You have the option of either a standard 1850mm long arm or a longer 2350mm arm to hold the umbrella out each with one hinged point for extra movement in either direction.

Post Supports

2 very sturdy options of aluminium posts are available for mounting up to 5 umbrellas to and these have many options in installation to either the ground, the wall or in between a balcony and the floor.

The use of a post still gives the ultimate flexibility with the said arms but gives the possibility of installing umbrellas in positions away from a building. The standard pole will take one or two umbrellas and is a fixed length of 2600mm. The adjustable larger pole will take up to 4 umbrellas around the sides with an optional 5th umbrella possible mounted directly on the top. This umbrella is telescopic and extends up to 2300mm high.

To mount the pole to the floor you have the option of either a ‘in ground base’ for concreting the pole support in, a ‘deck mount’ to install onto a hard surface, (stone, concrete or wood) or a ground screw to use in soil (not all soils suitable) . There is also the option of a surface mounted ‘tile base’ which is mobile and requires concrete slabs for eight to hold the base firm.

Wall Mounted

Paraflex offer a lightweight, easy-installation and DIY friendly wall-mounted parasol to provide perfect shade for sun-exposed areas such as gardens, balconies and terraces.

Wall mount arms are supplied with a wall mount bracket for fitting to a hard, vertical surface. Due to the number of different surfaces this kit can be fixed to, we do not supply bolts or screws to attach the bracket to a wall. We suggest you contact us to provide details of the correct fixings for your surface.

The flexible arms and tilting canopy allow you to create the shade where you want, independent of the sun’s position. Paraflex has a modern, sleek design, is robust and very easy to handle and adjust during the day.


Pole Mounted

The Paraflex is also available mounted to a side pole to allow shading into hard to reach places. Lighting and heating is also available and the poles and the arms have been designed with electrical wiring in mind to neatly slot cables into the unit itself. The umbrellas are individually very easy to remove and store when not in use and the rest of the system is manufactured in aluminium for excellent longevity.

They incorporate a very attractive design allowing them to not only be a sun-shading product, but a fashion accessory in the garden too.

When closed, the Paraflex can be tightly shut against the standing structure to

The pole mounted option is also available with a flower pot foundation profile to add style and beauty to the awning.


Multi-System

The Paraflex multi-system can mount upto a maximum of 5 parasols on a single centre pole. This allows for minimal ground space but offers maximum shading ideal for areas which require floor space e.g. dining areas, decking.

The system is uniquely versatile in its structure and can be manoeuvred into different positions. Each individual parasol has its own agile arm able to rotate and tilt the parasol into most angles to effectively maximise shading.
