An Introduction to Able Canopies

Collapsible Umbrellas

Collapsible Commercial Umbrellas

Commercial Umbrellas are perfect for covering alfresco dining areas for restaurants, café’s, hotels and schools however, many business owners prefer not to leave their umbrella canopies open out of hours. That’s where collapsible umbrellas come in, they can be closed when not in use, avoiding the risk of vandalism.

Our collapsible umbrellas are commercial structures that are permanently installed and have therefore been designed to withstand the UK weather all year round, this also deters thieves as they are installed into the ground.

Collapsible umbrellas create a cooling shade in the summer, making outside dining much more pleasant and shelter from the rain during the colder months, keeping those underneath dry and comfortable. Heaters and lighting can also be added to the Richmond and the Drayton umbrellas to extend the use of your collapsible umbrellas into the night and throughout the Winter.
