Hurricane Side Wind

The Bambrella Hurricane Side Wind is the industry’s answer to a strong, reliable and modern parasol and it’s perfectly suited to large commercial areas, patios, swimming pools and gardens. Being wind resistant and built to last, this parasol is the go-to for many customers as they’re reliable and will never go out of style.

With a 360 degree rotational base, and a 45 degree shade tilt, this parasol gives you the opportunity to shade different areas around the base, and to control how much sunshine you let in.

The base has adjustable feet for uneven surfaces whilst protecting the floor at the same time, and we use a specialised type of polymer for the bearings, reducing the risk of seizing or rusting up.

Choose from an array of our canopy colours and perhaps add branding to aid with your marketing; with a parasol that looks astounding and with your branding on it, it’ll create an impact on passers-by.

The Hurricane Side Wind has a unique parasol base design, which takes into consideration making the most of the area covered by the canopy and to minimise the risk of somebody tripping up.

If you would like a weighted base for your Hurricane Side Wind, we would provide you with a metal heavy duty base frame with two slots for weights. The weights are 70kg granite blocks, which slot into place in the frame. The combined weight of the granite blocks is 140kg. There is the possibility of adding caster wheels to the frame, but we would only recommend these if the ground that the parasol is going on is completely smooth and with no cracks (such as gaps between tiles.) cantilever parasol portable base with tiles

In-ground Base

The strongest support and fixation would be to permanently install your parasol into the ground. To install it, you would need to dig a hole approximately 70-80cm deep and then set it with concrete. Click here for full instructions.

Deck Plate

This Deck Plate parasol base is made to be bolted to a hard floor for long-term use.

Protective cover

We always recommend purchasing a waterproof protective cover with your parasols. This will protect the canopy when the parasol isn’t in use, or when placed in storage, in turn minimising fading, dirt build up and ensuring the canopy lasts longer.


Bambrella recommends the Electric Parasol Heater Golden 2000 for use with our Levante Side Wind parasol. This outdoor heating solution has a 2000-watt amber lamp, and can be affixed to the main cantilever pole of your parasol. It creates a warm and pleasant atmosphere under your parasol, and it can be controlled by your mobile phone. You can also affix this heater on a wall or ceiling.

LED Lights

Make the most of the evenings by attaching our LED light to your parasols. Simply place the two brackets on the spokes and light up the canopy within seconds. This light is powered by a rechargeable battery and comes with a 3 step dimmer switch, to provide you with between 5 – 20 hours of lighting time.

Bambrella uses three types of material for their canopies – Polyester, Spuncrylic and Recasens.

– Polyester is our entry level parasol canopy material, which comes with a 1 year year guarantee. It’s made of a strong polyester fibre, which is resistant to creasing and is great at holding its shape. We offer two natural colours in Polyester – beige and natural.

– Spuncrylic is Bambrella’s mid-range canopy material, and is the most popular. Spuncrylic is a polyester material that has been through “solution dying,” which gives the material a very high resistance to sunlight fading.
– Spuncrylic is stain resistant and water repellant.
– This is Bambrella’s most popular canopy material choice and comes in the widest array of colours. It also comes with a 3 year guarantee.
– UPF +50 (Ultraviolet Protectin Factor).

– Recasens is Bambrella’s top range canopy material, and comes with a 10 year guarantee.
– The Recasens fabric is 100% solution died acrylic, and it is stain and rot resistant. The fabric material is also water repellent and breathable.
– The feel of the canopy material is noticeably thicker, but has a smooth canvas feel as opposed to plastic-like.
– Bambrella has Recasens covers especially made per order, so the lead time is slightly longer.
