How much does the Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrella Cost?

Depending on your project requirements this price may vary, so let's walk through the individual costs that make up your final investment cost.

What is included in the standard umbrella kit?

The standard kit for the Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrella ranges from $3,774 to $6,098 and includes:

  •  1x Serenity™ Frame & Mast  - this is the aluminium frame of the umbrella
  •  1x Fabric canopy in either Recasens or Sunbrella fabric
  •  1x Mounting option to suit your space

What impacts this price?

The biggest impact on the price of an umbrella kit is the size of the umbrella. When determining what size cantilever umbrella you require it is important to consider the area that needs shading and ensure the umbrella is large enough to cover this.

A significant advantage of the Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrella is the effortless rotation offered by Shadowlock™ system. The ability to rotate the umbrella could mean you do not need an umbrella to cover 100% of the area. The umbrella can be rotated depending on the specific shade requirements or time of day.

The Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrella is available in a range of sizes, hand-built to meet your shade requirements:

As a general rule, the smaller the size of the shade the fewer materials are required to build the umbrella and therefore the lower the price.

The size of the umbrella can be deceptive. Square canopies are measured along the straight edge while octagons are measured from one side to the other.

The 2.5m | 8' Square and 3.5m | 11' Octagon umbrellas have a similar shade area while the 3.0m | 10' Square and 4.0m | 13' Octagon umbrellas have a similar shade area. The best option is often determined by the area. Our team can help you determine the best option for you.

These colours are:

  • Oyster

How much do accessories cost?

The accessories you choose can have a significant impact on the price of the Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrella. These must be factored in when considering your long-term shade investment.

Accessories are priced from $190 to $550 each, the zip-on Drop Blinds often add more and are dependent on colour, length and fabric style.

Accessories will make your Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrella much more versatile, giving you more value and enhancing your outdoor space. We often find customers leave these accessories out, before returning later to purchase them.

The additional upfront investment can make a significant impact on the outdoor experience and the longevity of your umbrella.

Accessories available with the Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrella are:

  • Rechargeable LED Smart Battery to power the inbuilt LED light.
  • Protection Cover which we recommend to protect your investment.
  • Wheels for the Free-standing Base.
  • Hardwire Kit for the LED light for permanent installations - requires professional installation.
  • Zip on Drop Blind that is compatible with square sizes for privacy - or blocking low-lying sun.
  • A Black Frame on some sizes

How much does shipping cost?

Shipping of large items such as the Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrellas can be very complex but don't worry. We have a team of experienced logistics coordinators who will arrange to track your delivery from the time it is dispatched until delivery at your address.

The cartons for the Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrellas are about 3m or 10' long, meaning special delivery is required, increasing the shipping cost.

Providing an accurate indication of what your shipping could cost is difficult without knowing your specific location, however, we can tell you this could be anywhere between $150 to $1500 per umbrella.

If you can have your umbrella delivered to a commercial address, this will in some cases, reduce the cost of shipping.

How much does installation cost?

One of the most attractive features of the Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrella is that professional installation is not required. These umbrellas come pre-assembled and hand-built in our factory to the highest quality standards. For you, this means installation can be handled by almost anyone as it is a simple process to get the umbrella installed in your outdoor area.

The Free-standing Base offers the most simple installation, not requiring any permanent fixing. All tools required come with the base. Due to the length of the Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrella, we recommend a two-person assembly.

The Surface Plate, In Ground Anchor and Wall Base Bracket, do require permanent fixings and for this, we advise contacting our Shade Consultants for a detailed installation manual, before purchase, so you can check your area meets the recommended requirements.

Should you choose to hire an independent installer for your Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrella, pricing will vary depending on the number of umbrellas that require installation, the mounting type and your geographical location.

Hiring independent help to install the Shadowspec Serenity™ Umbrella may cost $200 to $800 per umbrella, plus any travel fees the installation team may charge.

Shadowspec does not install, however, we partner with a range of independent umbrella installers covering most locations. Please ask your Shade Consultant to provide any available contacts in your area.
