We have three options for installing the Aurora umbrella. You can simply purchase a cross base and black concrete pavers that can be positioned anywhere in your garden, or a “semi-permanent” method that provides the most safe and secure operation. Advantages of a semi-permanent installation include:


Spigot (Included)

The spigot (pictured) is included with every side-post umbrella and can be bolted directly onto a concrete slab or decking. Additional installation accessories provide the option of making the spigot removeable.


Cross base only

This non permanent option is perfect for areas where you would like to move the umbrella to different locations around the garden or if you live in a rental property.


Set of 4 pavers to suit cross base

Designed for use with the Aurora Cantilever Umbrella Cross Base, these pavers are made from moulded concrete and come in a set of 4. Each concrete block weighs 22kg and measures 500mm x 500mm.


Base plate

Our base plate is suited for areas with existing concrete or decking. Decking installations need to have extra support installed to the joists and for concrete the base plate can be bolted down with a minimum concrete thickness to be 100mm.

Inground Sleeve

The inground sleeve is to be used for garden beds, lawn or any other soft surface or a paved area with sand/aggregate under the pavers. The hole will need to be a minimum of 40cm wide and 70cm deep and belled out at the bottom. Once the concrete is set approx 2-3 days (depending on weather conditions) you can install the umbrella to the sleeve.

Eclipse and Aurora Cantilever Umbrella Barrel Extension

Barrel extension

The Barrel extension is used to raise a cantilever umbrella out of dirt, sand or tan bark so it doesn’t cause any damage to the rotating mechanism or just to give some extra height to the umbrella if needed. It is 300mm high and 215mm in diameter, and is black powder coated steel.

The Barrel extension is designed to be bolted to an in-ground sleeve or base plate.

Umbrella Wheel base 880

“880” Heavy Duty Base without wheels

The sleek aluminium cover hides 12 concrete pavers (measuring 400mm x 400mm). This non permanent option is perfect for areas where you would like to move the umbrella to different locations around the garden or if you live in a rental property.

Wheel Set Optional Extra
The wheel set is optional, so you can use this impressive base without them. This type of base is suitable for light to moderate winds only, (depending on umbrella size).

Please note the pavers are not included.

Eclipse cantilever umbrella stabiliser bars

Stabiliser bars

The Aurora cantilever umbrella has a uniquely designed fixed arm stabiliser bars. These stabiliser arms will greatly increase the umbrellas stability on windy days. The stabiliser bars screws into a mounting block already installed in the groove of the umbrella mast. Each stabiliser arm then attaches to the end of the umbrella arms to the left and right. The stabiliser bars are designed for an environment where the umbrella needs to be up for longer periods of time and windy conditions.

Protective Cover for Eclipse & Aurora cantilever umbrellas (Slate colour shown)

Protective covers

Although we have designed our cantilever umbrellas to last and have manufactured the canopies using the highest quality outdoor fabrics, we still recommend using a cover-bag to protect your umbrella through the winter months. The cover-bag helps to keep the canopy clean and free from bird-droppings and other unwanted nasties. It will prolong the life of your umbrella and keep it looking its best for many years to come.


LED lights

Our rechargeable LED lights comes with matching clips to attach the light to the canopy frame on any location on the arms of the umbrella. You will need to plug in and charge the batteries before use and should last approx 6 hours.

  • Simple one-button function
  • When on 100% power each light offers 400LM
  • 3 operational modes: 1) 100% lighting (2) 50% energy saving mode (3) Flash alarm
  • Strong magnet built into one end of the light, to allow hanging from metal objects
