What Are the Benefits of Off-Set or Cantilever Umbrellas?

Cantilever umbrellas are the perfect solution for many homes and businesses not only for protection from the sun’s scorching UV rays, but also from sudden downpours. A cantilever umbrella is suspended and supported by a rod placed to one side rather than in the middle of its canopy. Therefore, a cantilever umbrella can offer a larger area of protection while keeping the pole out of the way and your view unobstructed.

Cantilever Umbrella Features

With a Poggesi cantilever umbrella, you can adjust its position 360 degrees to rotate and tilt the angle, and adjust the height of the canopy as the sun moves across the sky. You can easily control your umbrella with a handle crank that allows for multiple functions including rotation, tilt and height adjustment of the canopy. It takes only a touch and a push to adjust the umbrella for the perfect angle and setting. There are also other benefits that an offset cantilever patio umbrella can provide over a traditional center pole umbrella. With a cantilever umbrella, you effectively eliminate the need for a bulky weight base in the middle of the furniture . Simply place your umbrella off to the side and arrange your patio furniture in any configuration. This also makes it easy to change the arrangement at any time. Additionally, a cantilever umbrella is ideal for poolside coverage. It can be place at the edge of the pool to allow shade while in the water and rotated over to lounge chairs as desired without moving the base. With a cantilever umbrella, you can keep everyone cool even on the hottest summer days, and dry on rainy days.
