Shadowspec Unity – Multi Canopy Cantilever Umbrella

Our flagship multi-canopy model which can be configured with a range of canopy and mounting options to fit your outdoor space. Contact us for more information and design advice.

The Evolution of Shade

  • There are no internal moving parts, pullies, ropes or old-school crank or winding handles in the Shadowspec Unity™. Just click the ShadowGlide™ handle and slide it up, with one finger if you wish, it’s that easy.

  • The Unity™ mast has four individual channels allowing for up to four canopies to be mounted from one central mast. This is great for large outdoor spaces, patios with multiple settings or going around corners with three layers of shade.

  • The combination of the gas-strut and patented sliding mechanism allows for the Unity™ to be deployed or retracted in 3 seconds.

  • The Unity™ comes near-assembled in its box, there are only three attachment points to make to have it fully operational. The canopies are easy to affix with eight stainless steel hex bolts holding it to the frame.

Patent Pending Technology



Brilliant engineering and a clever collaboration of working parts allow the Shadowspec Unity™ to open in one smooth motion. Use as little as 1 finger to deploy your umbrella in 3 seconds.



The central hub features a built-in LED light that’s easily controlled with an optional smart battery. Perfect for evening enjoyment of the outdoors.



The gas-piston assisted lift allows for ease of use and removes the need for internal componentry that can break and ruin your day in the sun.



The integrated wind-protection and umbrella rotation system allows for
all-day protection from the elements and 360-degree rotation of the umbrellas.
