NOTE: The difference between the Italian Piazza Commercial and Italian Piazza Heavy Duty is that the commercial model has a PVC canopy whilst the Heavy Duty model has an Acrylic Canvas Canopy. Both options are suitable for a commercial or domestic installations. Read below to compare the two.
This umbrella range has been manufactured in the same Australian factory for nearly four decades. Over this time the design has remained virtually unchanged which is a testament to the enduring strength and ease of operation of this magnificent umbrella. It’s superior design and construction combine to create a commercial umbrella able to withstand the rigors of the most demanding conditions.
- Internal Rack and pinion gear box for easy opening and closing
- 82.5 x 5mm Structural Aluminium mast
- 100% outdoor acrylic or commercial quality PVC canopies
- Canopies suitable for screen printing
- Heavy duty reinforced arm extrusions for extra strength
- Suitable for bolt down or inground installation with custom base options available
- Multiple canopy options including valance or straight edge
All fittings stainless steel
Italian Piazza Heavy Duty Umbrellas also have the option of a valance. This is a strip of fabric sewn around the perimeter of the umbrella. Valances are popular in commercial settings where customers like to screen print the name of their restaurant of café onto the valance.
Valances can have a straight edge or a scalloped edge.
Another feature is to contrast the colour of the Valance binding. If your canopy and valance are red for example, a black binding or edging can really give a great effect. Call us to discuss colour combinations.

Each umbrella is made to your exact specifications so you should anticipate a lead time from placement of order to delivery of around 4 weeks depending on the time of year. Note: It is less in winter and can be longer in summer.
Each umbrella in the range has an engineer certified wind rating in excess of 100km/h when opened. The engineer certificate is provided under the Brochures tab. It is important to read and understand this wind rating correctly. For further information, please contact us.
Italian Piazza Umbrellas are made with two different canopy fabrics;
- BRO Soltis Proof® PVC (called the “Commercial Range”) and
- Bradmill® Acrylic. (some colours may be manufactured from a different brand name but quality is equivalent).
What’s best for me? Typically, the PVC option is often popular with restaurants and cafes where meals are being served all day or when a White canopy is required. Schools, Aged Care centres, community centres, resorts and domestic customers usually select the Heavy Duty outdoor acrylic canvas because it is colour fast, hard wearing and performs slightly better in very high winds. Acrylic is highly water resistant.

Italian Piazza Heavy Duty require either a bolt down or inground installation. They are not suitable for use with a mobile or relocatable base.
Installation is relatively straight forward. If you are planning an inground base (i.e. into grass, pavers or soil, have us send the inground base to you ahead of time, that way you have plenty of time to get the base set whilst the umbrella is being manufactured. When the umbrella arrives the base will be set and you can stand the umbrella.
- Bolt down Baseplate: Ideal where the umbrella is being installed on a more permanent setting or where it is particularly breezy. You will need a suitably strong concrete slab to bolt to at least 100mm thick and reinforced. For baseplate details including hole centres go to the Brochures Tab.
- Inground Base: It is possible with this style of installation for us to send the inground socket out ahead of time allowing you/your handyperson to concrete it in and let the concrete set. When the umbrella arrives, the base is secure and you can stand the umbrella. It is possible to order an extended base - call us to discuss.
NOTE: If you need assistance with installation we have installers in most capital cities who can assist you – just give us a call.
