Our Range of Commercial Umbrellas

Fortino®

The wind-resistant in small size

An emerging breeze won’t trouble this sunshade. The compact Fortino umbrella is specifically designed to remain stable in windy conditions, staying firmly in place once positioned. Its counter-rotating servo mechanism offers exceptional ease of use: simply pull the tension lever downwards and secure it in the profiled pole.

For versatile installation, the Fortino can be optionally mounted on a concrete, steel, or granite base. If you prefer a permanent setup in your garden or patio, a securely anchored ground socket ensures that only the sun—not the wind—will move the shade.

Constructed from natural anodised aluminium, the frame features a robust two-part profiled pole. Both the slide and crown are crafted from durable die-cast aluminium, while the bolts and rivets are made of stainless steel. The sunshade cover is not only replaceable but also self-tautening, thanks to its flexible rod ends.

Fortero®

The wind-resistant in medium size

The Fortero® is a sunshade designed to withstand strong winds, ensuring it remains stable even during sudden gusts. Despite its robust construction, it is easy to control, thanks to the counter-rotating servo mechanism that ensures exceptional ease of handling.

Ideal for large squares, hotel patios, and swimming pools, the Fortero® provides generous and reliable shade with a diameter of up to 4 meters. For safety, it is crucial to secure it properly in place.

The frame is crafted from natural anodised aluminium and features a two-part profiled pole. Both the slide and crown are made from durable die-cast aluminium, while the bolts and rivets are made of stainless steel. The sunshade cover is replaceable and self-tautening, owing to the flexible rod ends.

Fortello®

The wind-resistant in large size

Meet the Fortello, the ideal commercial umbrella that strikes the perfect balance between size and strength. Neither too big nor too small, it hits the sweet spot for those seeking reliable shade solutions.

Transporting the Fortello is a breeze, and its durability shines through, capable of withstanding winds up to 100km/h. For added convenience, it can be equipped with an Osyrion Battery upon request, ensuring enjoyable evenings even when the weather isn’t cooperating.

Crafted from naturally anodised aluminium with die-cast aluminium slide and crown, the Fortello boasts manual operation, allowing for easy opening and closing with an ergonomic slide and tensioning lever. With sun protection rated at 50+, it offers ample protection from harmful UV rays. Plus, its unique extension rods and spring-loaded arms maintain canopy tension over time, ensuring lasting performance.
