Australia (PRUnderground) March 3rd, 2014

The latest invention to make your time outdoors safer and more enjoyable is seeking support on crowd-funding website, Kickstarter.

The brainchild of architect and inventor Mark Fraser, Cool-Cabana is a break-through shelter that’s light to carry, easy to setup, provides twice the shade of a beach umbrella and won’t blow away. Beach and Park lovers can relax more and enjoy the outdoors for longer knowing their risk of sun exposure is reduced.

With it’s good looks the new shelter has already been well received internationally with beach goers seeing them as a must-have accessory overcoming the all too well known problems and danger of beach umbrellas flying away or sitting in enclosed shelters.

Designer Mark Fraser, said:

“I’ve always had belief in the need for a product like Cool-Cabana and feedback confirms the product will be in high demand.”

“For years I experienced the frustration of poorly designed sun shelters so started by sketching designs in the sand.”

Cool-Cabanas have been tested extensively over the last 12 months with incredible results. Video footage showing perfromance in high winds and the simple setup is uploaded to

Cool-Cabanas deserve their nickname “last man standing” for the ability to stay up in the wind after everyone has left. We have used a Cool-Cabana for the last 6 months, they’re so easy to use, you can easily stay at the beach all day even when the wind gets up.” Erin McMahon, Surfer’s Paradise, Australia

“I can see everyone in Noosa will soon be using Cool-Cabanas.” Gail, retail store owner Noosa Beach, Australia

Cool-Cabana has launched globally on Kickstarter seeking funds to roll out the first production run.

For the launch, for every 10 backed, 1 is being donated to a Lifeguard Association or Surf Lifesaving Club with backers selecting their preferred recipient.
