The strongest and most durable umbrella in the World

The Atacama is no ordinary umbrella!

It is the strongest and most durable tensile fabric umbrella in the World! Designed and engineered to be left open all year round regardless of the wind, rain, sun or snow.

The Atacama is supplied with a waterproof and 100% UV blocking tensile PVC canopy. Using Serge Ferrari 502 PVC not only provides the highest quality available in the market today but also the largest colour range. The canopy can also be printed on and branded and we use the same technology for this as is applied to the sails of offshore racing yachts.

The structural steel frame can be galvanised, painted, powder coated or a combination of these and any RAL colour can be chosen at no extra cost.

Like all our of fabric structures, the Atacama comes with a 10 year warranty and an expected life of over 20 years.

The Atacama’s square size makes it a very versatile structure and units can easily be located in close proximity to each other to cover larger area or multiple tables. Lights and heaters can also be specified as can a socket base which allows the mast to pass through tables.

Sizes are available from 3m x 3m to 5m x 5m. Its practicality and value for money makes the Atacama one of our most popular structures.

If you like the design but need something bigger then be sure to check out our Saharas.
