New Outdoor Umbrella Arrives in Preparation for Kiwi Summer

New Outdoor Umbrella Arrives in Preparation for Kiwi Summer

25 August, 2014

Shade7’s most popular outdoor umbrella range welcomes a new addition to the Riviera family. Measuring in at 3.5 metres square, the cantilever umbrella offers the greatest amount of shade in the Riviera range.

Auckland based company Shade7 have spent the winter months developing the new 3.5 metre square umbrella in preparation for the arrival of summer. Offering 12.25m2 of shade, the new umbrella is now the largest in the Riviera range. It has been designed to cater for large residential or commercial outdoor areas that require an adjustable umbrella that not only looks stunning but offers a greater amount of shade.

The Riviera cantilever umbrella range all provides shade flexibility with 360 degree rotation and 3 lockable tilt positions. When the umbrella is not in use it can be collapsed completely back to the mast and tidily housed in a cover bag.

Shade7 Managing Director Michael Pearce says “We believe our new Riviera is the best and most attractive large retractable cantilever umbrella in New Zealand. It was designed in mind for homes and businesses that want to maximise shade in a large outdoor space.”

Designed and engineered in New Zealand by Shade7, the Riviera cantilever umbrella was specifically intended for use in New Zealand’s harsh and varied weather conditions. It has been specially produced to withstand strong winds, rain and intense sun. Since its release two years ago Shade7 have sold thousands of units across New Zealand, Australia, Mauritius, USA, Hong Kong and throughout the Pacific Islands for both residential and commercial sites.

The new Riviera umbrellas are now available for purchase in four standard colours or in additional colours by order. With the near arrival of spring Shade7 are encouraging consumers to purchase their umbrellas ready for the onset of another great kiwi summer. Visit Shade7 online ( or in their Auckland Showroom.
