The Savannah rotates 360 degrees and locks into place with an easy to operate foot pedal. The entire canopy tilts with a strong and easy to use mechanism. When the umbrella is folded down the canopy retracts back against the main post making storage a breeze. No central pole means no worries and maximum usable space.
We think The Savannah is the perfect umbrella for those looking for ready-made shade at an affordable price. The Savannah is made from rust-resistant aluminium with marine grade fittings, perfect for swimming pool areas. The oval-shaped yacht mast is powder coated anthracite and is covered with a premium grade O’bravia canvas.
The Savannah is a longstanding favourite at Shade Australia and over the years we’ve sold thousands of these umbrellas to customers right around Australia.
The Savannah is built with lots of practical features including an easy tilt and rotate feature and fabric canopy which blocks 98% of UV radiation as well as being showerproof.
Easy tilt feature to block morning or afternoon sun

Please note: This diagram gives important measurements to be aware of when choosing a Savannah Cantilever Umbrella. For example, the closing height of the arms (Measurement F) can be quite low and if the umbrella is positioned close to a structure such as a spa, the umbrella may not have enough clearance to open.

O'Bravia Fabric is a premium quality canvas made specifically for outdoor applications. It is manufactured using a special process which locks the colour deep into the fibres of the fabric to prevent fading. It is highly water-resistant and has an excellent UV protection of 98% or a UPF of 50. O'Bravia Canvas is the perfect blend of high UPF, water resistance, fade resistance and price. It is far superior to other fabrics such as Olefin and polyester. It compares favourably with more expensive fabrics such as Sunbrella but doesn't come with the high price tag.

The main difference is that the Asta is made with a heavier duty frame than the Savannah. Both umbrellas are cantilever in design and can rotate, tilt and easily fold away. The Asta requires a boltdown installation whereas the Savannah can be mounted on an above ground base. Call us on 1800 155 233 to discuss your specific requirements.
Choose from a modern palette of colours from the genuine O'Bravia colour range.
*Please note: Colours may vary slightly between screens and the actual product. When selecting your canopy colour, be mindful if you have light coloured pavers such as Travertine or Sandstone, of the glare factor. Natural absorbs a lot more glare than Eggshell and you don't want to need your sunglasses on to sit under your new umbrella!
The Savannah features a graphite powder coated colour frame.
The Savannah comes with a range of options for installation.
An on ground crossbar base and a bolt down baseplate is a standard inclusion. (Shown below). The on ground base requires the use of 6-8 ballast blocks or pavers (not included). These can be easily sourced from a hardware or nursery supply store and need to be 450-500mm square.
The bolt down baseplate can be secured to a concrete slab. It requires 4 anchor bolts which can be supplied by Shade Australia as an optional extra (we recommend and supply Hilti Anchor bolts for their ease of use and strength). Use Hilti HSA-F M8x100mm if you are bolting directly to a 100mm thick reinforced slab. If you have pavers on top of the slab we recommend Hilti HSA-F M8x130mm bolts.
An optional Extra Large Resin Base with retractable wheels gives the umbrella added flexibility. If you wish to move the umbrella around and have a flat surface, the Wheeled Resin Base can be a great addition. It is also available in the Large Resin Base (No Wheels). The Resin Base is required to be filled with ballast before use. We recommend using sand or blue metal (not water).
Shade Australia is proud to offer an inground base option made especially for the Savannah umbrella. This is a galvanised in-ground base which is set into a footing around 450mm dia by 800mm deep depending on the soil type.

UMBRELLA TIPS & TRICKS
How to secure a Cantilever Umbrella
Cantilever umbrellas need more weight than centre post umbrellas to make them stable. Some really big cantilever umbrellas like the Asta and Revolvashade need to be bolted down or installed with an in-ground base. Some of the medium-sized umbrellas like the Savannah and Lynden can be used with movable bases filled with either water or gravel.
SIDE MOUNT UMBRELLA
The Savannah is a side mount umbrella. Also called side post umbrella, cantilever umbrella or sidearm umbrella

Can I install this umbrella myself?
Sure, the umbrella comes fully assembled ready for installation. If you’re bolting the umbrella down to a concrete slab, you need to drill 4 holes and use masonry anchors (not supplied) to bolt it down. If you’re planning to install it into a grassed area, you need to dig a hole and pour a concrete footing. Once the concrete sets, you can bolt the umbrella to it.
If you order the optional wheeled resin base, you need to supply the gravel yourself (we recommend blue metal which can be purchased in 20kg bags for about $10 per bag, you need 120kgs of gravel). We have easy to follow instructions for how to attach the umbrella to this base.
Do I need any other bits and pieces to install it?
Yes. If you’re bolting down to a concrete slab, we recommend you purchase some anchor bolts from us when you purchase your umbrella.
If your installing on-ground, you need to purchase 6-8 Resinstone Ballast Blocks or pavers, 45-50cm square.
If you’re purchasing the wheeled resin base you need to purchase 120kgs of gravel or sand.
Can I leave this umbrella up all the time?
No, we don’t’ recommend it.
Although it is a strong umbrella and is tolerant to breezy conditions, it is always a good idea to fold it away when not in use, just in case a strong wind comes along and damages it.
What accessories do you recommend I purchase with this umbrella?
The umbrella does come with a polyester protection cover but it’s pretty light weight. If you really want to give your new umbrella the best possible protection we recommend you purchase a Large Cantilever Protection Cover. This will fit neatly on your new umbrella and give it the best possible protection.
A LED light is also a handy accessory to purchase. It simply clips onto a central drop-down arm.
I still have more questions can I give you a call?
Sure, we love answering our customers questions. Just call us on 1800 155 233 during normal business hours and we’ll answer any question you have.
