Shades of Comfort
Experience the joys of outdoor living, all year round…
Shades are extremely proud to have designed and manufactured our own maintenance free Tensile Umbrella - The Poseidon. Renowned for its exceptional strength and durability, the Poseidon is a perfect ‘fit and forget’ solution for the hospitality sector. Ours is one of the few central mast tensile umbrellas in the United Kingdom to be certified for outstanding snow loading and wind bearing capabilities.
The Poseidon is installed directly into the ground using our specially designed in-ground sleeve system. When combined with the 114mm treated powder coated steel mast, this delivers a phenomenal degree of stability and allows us to offer an unrivalled 10 year framework guarantee with confidence.

The Poseidon in Pubs and Restaurants
The Poseidon tensile umbrella has been a huge success across the pub and restaurant industries as it is notorious that staff often simply don’t have time to attend to the outdoor equipment for it to benefit from a long life.
To protect them from vandalism and bad weather, we ask that our customers close, strap and cover regular Giant Umbrellas at night and throughout the winter. The Poseidon eliminates this issue as it is permanently fixed in the open position.
The Poseidon in Drive Thrus
Shades of Comfort have worked with Costa Coffee since 2009 and our Poseidon tensile umbrella has been placed in many Costa Drive Thrus all over the UK. Much like any drive thru units found in other brands, the Drive Thrus are usually in out of town, high-traffic flow areas where customers can not only use a drive thru system to purchase their coffee, but can sit and relax there too.
With the ever growing trend of alfresco dining, The Poseidon is ideally suited to the hospitality industry. Designed to remain fixed in the open position, The Poseidon is perfect for busy proprietors to increase their turnover potential and brand awareness 365 days a year!
