Shanghai Parasol With Tilt 2.6m


Shade yourself in style with this 2.6m Shanghai Parasol from Christow. Designed with a beautiful oriental-inspired canopy in a choice of modern colours, it’s a stylish way to brighten up your patio or decking. Plus, it has a tilt mechanism to block out glare from the low-lying sun.

UV Protective Canopy

2m canopy is made from durable 180g polyester and is rated UV30+ to protect you from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Diameter makes it perfect for a two-seater or four-seater bistro table.

Crank Handle to Easily Open

Shanghai has a crank handle to easily open and close the canopy. With its circular oriental-inspired shape, the canopy looks just as attractive when it’s closed as it does when it’s open.

Tilting Mechanism

Press the button at the top of the pole to tilt the canopy and block out the sun as it rises and sets. Perfect if you’re enjoying an al fresco breakfast or sitting outside on a summer evening.

Air Vent to Aid Air Flow

An air vent at the top of the canopy allows air to circulate more freely beneath it to keep you cool in humid weather. Plus, it helps to decrease the amount of uplift in breezy weather.

18 Fibreglass Ribs

Circular oriental-inspired shape of the canopy is created by 18 fibreglass ribs. Because the ribs are fibreglass, they’re strong and flexible to prevent them snapping in windy weather.

Strong Steel Pole

Designed with a steel pole which is more durable than aluminium for superior strength, stability, and wind-resistance. The pole is also powder-coated for enhanced rust-resistance.

Easy to Assemble

Parasol comes in two sections which slot together for easy assembly. Simply slot the top pole into the bottom pole and away you go. Can also be easily disassembled to easily store away.

Parasol Base Not Included

A parasol base is not included, so you’ll need to buy one separately to keep the parasol weighted. The steel pole has a 38mm diameter and is compatible with most parasol bases.

Shade Yourself In Style

2.6m Shanghai Parasol

Stylish Oriental-Inspired 2.6m Parasol

  • This 2.6m Shanghai Parasol is a stylish way to shade yourself from the sun when you're relaxing in your garden. Features a crank handle to easily open, plus a tilt mechanism to easily tilt.

  • Whereas most parasols have 6 to 8 ribs, the Shanghai has 16 ribs, giving it an attractive oriental shape. Because the ribs are fibreglass, they're strong, flexible, and highly wind-resistant.

Strong Steel Pole (38mm Diameter)

  • For strength and stability, we've designed the Shanghai with a strong steel pole which is powder-coated for rust-resistance. The pole has a diameter of 38mm to fit most parasol bases.

  • The parasol does not include a base, so you'll need to buy one separately. If you plan to use your parasol without the extra stability of a table, we recommend a base weighing 25kg or moreMade from strong high-quality MDF for optimal stability.

Key Information

UV Protective

For optimal durability, we've designed the canopy using tough 180g polyester fabric in a choice of modern colours. Rated UPF30+, it also delivers excellent protection from the sun's harmful UV rays.

Crank Handle

Opening and closing the canopy is a breeze thanks to the addition of an easy-turn crank handle. Simply twist the handle clockwise to open the canopy or anti-clockwise when you want to close it.

Tilt Mechanism

Easily tilt and angle the canopy using its simple push-button tilt mechanism. As well as shading you from the sun as it moves throughout the day, it also enables taller people to easily stand beneath it.

Roof Air Vent

We've designed the canopy with a roof vent to aid air flow, keep you cool in hot weather, and reduce uplift from the wind. However, we advise that you avoid using it during strong and heavy winds.
