3m outdoor umbrella - a popular size
Our SU2 Cafe & Resort Umbrella and Shadowspec Serenity™ have a 3m square option. The Shadowspec Unity™ is also available as a 3m square but it has the added bonus of being able to mount up to 3 other canopies onto the same mast. We have many different umbrella canopy sizes available so view our full umbrella range. Choose a colour and style to complement or match your patio furniture.

Square outdoor umbrella vs octagonal
Octagonal canopies fit with your more traditional design styles. Square tend to enhance contemporary decor and balance parallel architectural features of the adjoining building. Rectangular shaped umbrella canopies can shade the entire length of a long table (this shape can be achieved with a Multi-canopy Cantilever Umbrella).

Square outdoor umbrellas can increase your outdoor living space. If you are wanting your umbrella to create a patio outdoor to extend your living space, square outdoor patio umbrellas are a great option as they can provide coverage right up to the edge of a building. The Unity™ has a square outdoor umbrella option. You can mount up to four canopies on the one mast to create a large outdoor living space with room for a dining table (as below). Rain gutters can also be added to the umbrellas.
