The Heart of it All

Event can be found in our product range between »small« like Easy and »large« like Jumbrella.

Due to its steeper angle, in comparison to other models, this parasol is suited perfectly for advertising purposes. The printing on the parasol’s membrane is clearly visible from every angle, thereby ensuring optimal advertising presence.

Installation Options

There is a choice of mobile or permanent installation options. Mobile installation is characterized by a greater degree of flexibility in choosing the location and surface. When installing an in-ground option, building measures must be carried out that have to be taken into consideration during the planning phase. They consist of above-ground and in-ground pieces to be set in concrete.

Bahama’s customers always refer back to the great importance of our German production facilities. »Made in Germany« is still a unique selling point and a reason to buy. Bahama‘s full range production facility is located in Germany.

The combination of the highest quality materials and structural features allows Bahama to guarantee the wind stability of its products, depending on the model, up to 130 km/h. In addition to the technical details of the parasol structure, it is the decisiveness of the textile membranes’ color to light- fastness, waterproof material, weight and water column that make each Bahama parasol the highest quality in its class.

All about service


Analogous to the sun protection factor/SPF all textiles are labeled with the ultraviolet protection factor/UPF. Built into the fabric it protects against hazardous UV radiation. Bahama uses the fabric brand betex®05 for the production of its parasol textile membranes. This material fulfills the requirements for UPF50+, which indicates an »excellent« dermatological UV protection factor according to DIN EN 13758 and allows less than one fiftieth (<2%) of the UV radiation through the textile membrane onto the skin.
