Skyspan offers three canopy options so you only pay for the performance and benefits that you actually need.



Retractable Canopy

Shade when you want it and sunshine when you don’t?

With our reliable and robust internal gearing system, the umbrella is easily operated via a detachable handle, and safely locked into position, whatever the weather.

Engineer wind rated (EWR) for wind speeds up to 118kph whilst open, you’ll have ample time to retract your umbrella in changing conditions.

Once closed, the Sunset will stand safe and secure in winds up to 148kph, ready for future use.

Recommended for sheltered, light to medium wind zones with occasional high wind exposure, and for high wind zones once retracted.

Fixed Canopy


Fixed Canopy

Need year round shelter, or not wanting the task of retracting your shade?

The Horizon fixed canopy option removes the cost of the retraction system, locking the umbrella permanently open without compromising safety and performance in harsh weather.

The Horizon canopy is engineer wind rated (EWR) and certified for wind speeds up to 118kph.


Recommended for sheltered, light to medium wind zones with occasional high wind exposure.

Extreme Weather


Extreme Weather Canopy

The clear choice for any coastal, wind prone, or exposed environments.

Structurally reinforced struts brace the tensioned canopy for increased stability and greater wind resistance for wind speeds up to 148kph.

Solid to translucent canopy options allow you to choose the appropriate level of light transmission from full block out to moderately diffused light to suit your levels of sun exposure.


Recommended for medium, high and very high wind zones.

"So easy to use a child could do it, but so cleverly designed that he doesn't."

easy to use 1

With retractable canopies of up to 20 sqm in size, the operating system of a commercial umbrella cannot be an afterthought.

The Sunset‘s proprietary, hand wound, internal gearing system makes light work of deploying even the most substantial canopy. Swift and smooth operation without any cumbersome equipment or extra help makes the Sunset ideal for commercial use.

A removable handle, allows the umbrella to be locked into position, preventing any unauthorised operation and keeping your patrons, staff, and umbrella, safe, whatever the weather.
