O'Bravia Fabric is a premium quality canvas made specifically for outdoor applications. It is manufactured using a special process that 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. 


Black Natural Charcoal Ridge Boulder


The structural aluminium frame is powder-coated silver.


This umbrella is available with a bolt down base or inground base. When using the bolt down option the area should be a large concrete surface of at least 10cm thick and steel reinforced. The base should be secured with 4 x M10 masonry anchors (sold separately).

For an inground installation, we can supply a specially made base which should be concreted into a hole of approximately 35cm diameter x 80cm depth (assuming firm natural ground). Typically 8 x 20kg bags of concrete are required (Rapidset concrete is not recommended).

Due to its heavy construction, the Solarmax is not suitable for a movable base option.

Why is this umbrella more expensive than other Shelta cantilever umbrellas?

The Solarmax is a large, heavy-duty cantilever umbrella. The things which add its cost include the very strong frame on which the umbrella is built and the high quality O'Bravia acrylic canvas which is used to make the canopy.

How is the Solarmax different from the Asta?

The Solarmax is identical to the Shelta "Asta" except that it uses O'bravia fabric instead of Sunbrella. O'bravia is a shower-proof, fade-resistant fabric with a high UPF 50+ fabric. The great benefit to this new version is the lower price-point. This proven, prestiguous cantilever umbrella is great for any home and promises to look great and give years of reliable service. 

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 concrete an in-ground base (optional extra) into the ground. Once this is done it takes a couple of strong people to lift the umbrella from its box and slide it over the spigot ready for use. 

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 in-ground, you need to purchase the in-ground socket in addition to the umbrella itself. 

Can I leave this umbrella up all the time?

We recommend that you collapse the umbrella when not using it. Although it is a strong umbrella and is tolerant of windy conditions, it is always a good idea to fold it away when unattended or not in use.

What accessories do you recommend I purchase with this umbrella?

The anchor bolts for sure. Also, the umbrella does come with a protection cover but it’s relatively lightweight and only warranted for 12 months. If you really want to give your new umbrella the best possible protection we recommend you purchase an extra large O'Bravia 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. 

Can I get the Solarmax in other colours?

There is only one frame colour and four canopy colour options. If you are seeking a different frame and/or coloured canopy, look at the Sidepost Classic or the Revolvashade Deluxe cantilever umbrella, both of which are available in a wide range of colour combinations.
