BALDWIN PARK, Calif. - Shade products manufacturer Shademaker announced the addition of its newest design, the Polaris, to its line of umbrellas for restaurants, resorts, country clubs and high-end residential designers.
The Polaris by Shademaker features a silver anodized aluminum finish and a full 13-foot square shade expanse.
The Polaris offers advanced functionality in a square 13-foot side post model.
"The Polaris is ideal for high-end residential applications as well as resorts where large shade is desired," said Jeff B. Dorough, vice president of sales and marketing for Shademaker. "With the 360-degree rotation, Polaris is able to provide shade for multiple outdoor areas from dining to poolside."
The Polaris provides a full 13-foot square shade expanse. The side post umbrella's capabilities include full rotation from a single non-obstructive installation point, providing 169 square feet of shade. The umbrella mast retracts when use is not desired. An easy trigger lock system has been engineered by Shademaker for tilting and creation of multiple shade options.
The Polaris features a silver anodized aluminum finish that is favored for commercial applications due to greater durability and resistance to tarnishing, scratching or corrosion. Each Polaris unit is built with the Shademaker heavy duty mast and rib wall thickness.
"Trending in contract shade products is the use of multiple units to create cozy outdoor environments as well as non-obstructing installations," Dorough said. "With the Polaris, both of these trends were taken into consideration."
As a square umbrella design, the Polaris can be grouped to create a roof over multiple dining or leisure areas. While eliminating barriers to outdoor room planning and patron flow, the side post design of Shademaker's Polaris was developed to mount in concrete or in ground.
The Polaris from Shademaker is on display this week in booth 1635 at the HD Expo in Las Vegas, and will also be shown at NeoCon in showroom 1655 of Chicago's Merchandise Mart.
