The ‘Heatmaster’ unit features 4 x 500 watt infra-red bulbs, providing an instant warmth and glow. The Piazza umbrella has built-in conduits for channelling the cables.
As shown in the images, we fit an extended central hub on which to clamp the heater. You will need a 13 amp outdoor socket close to the foot of the mast. We will also supply a 5m cable - which reaches circa 2.5m from the base of the umbrella. Note, that if you source the heater independently you will find it is only supplied with a much shorter cable.
If ordering the heater at the same time as your umbrella, we will fit the extended hub and cable pre-delivery.
If ordering the heater separately, at a later date, costs may differ depending on location/delivery/installation requirements.

Junctions / rain
Two or more umbrellas can be connected with our rain gutters / junctions. A small flap is sewn to one edge of each canopy - so that the junction can be easily attached / detached.
The junction is lined with clear PVC to make rain flow easier. Piazza models can be slightly tilted to determine the direction of rain run-off.
£60 + £70 / per linear metre
Bespoke arm position
Main arm to the short side - The standard and strongest position is to keep the arm on the long side. This typically enables the mast / base to be perfectly in line with the edge of canopy. Amending the umbrella so that the arm is on the short side requires two new ribs and two hours of workshop time.
‘Hybrid’ positions towards (but not in-line with) the corner are also achievable.
Base covers - Piazza
Our base covers are made from a black composite material, with an appearance similar to decking.
The base is made in two parts which slide together. They sit directly onto the concrete blocks thereby adding useful extra weight. Available for delivery from stock.
Bespoke base covers made from Millboard and other materials to match your decking, can be supplied from our Poggesi Cornwall office. These can also be made to a double height with cushions, to create a seating area.
