The benefits of owning a cantilever umbrella

Outdoor Restaurant Umbrellas

Cantilever umbrellas, also known as off-set umbrellas, are equipped with a stable off-set base that allows for an unobstructed view as the pole is installed out of the way. These umbrellas efficiently utilize the space they are installed in, such as decks or balcony rails. They do not need large floor spaces for installation as they are suspended from the air and supported from the side. For these benefits and more, cantilever umbrellas can be the perfect addition to pool edges, rooftop patios and terraces. Read on to find out more about the benefits of these umbrellas from Poggesi.

Easy to set up

Cantilever umbrellas are some of the easiest models to set up as they do not need to be installed on a piece of furniture. Unlike traditional umbrellas, these are not drilled on to or supported by tables. This allows for greater scope of choosing any furniture as per the aesthetic of the facility.

Cantilever umbrellas also come with a strong base that prevents the umbrella from tipping over, providing a higher level of security than traditional umbrellas. The base can be made of cement or installed in-ground.

Easy to use and store

Cantilever umbrellas are equipped with hand cranks that offer optimal control over the functioning. They can be used to tilt the umbrella by up to 360 degrees, while adjusting the canopy’s height too. Offering a high level of versatility, the cantilever umbrellas can be raised or lowered and tilted from left to right, according to the intensity of the sun. These umbrellas are a convenient option for restaurants and hotels as the setting can be adjusted even with guests seated under it.

Storing a cantilever umbrella is as simple as closing it and moving it into storage as it is not attached to any piece of furniture.

Complete 360-degree coverage

Due to their tilting function, cantilever umbrellas provide more shade than traditional umbrellas that are supported from the center. This allows the umbrella to provide optimum coverage of up to 360 degrees from the harsh sun.

Another great benefit of the cantilever umbrella is that it also offers protection from other elements of nature such as rain and hail.

Pool coverage

For hotels and restaurants that have a pool that need to be covered, the cantilever umbrella is the right way to go. This is because the base can be installed in a corner, which is offset from the pool, with the canopy hanging over, providing sufficient shade without any obstructions.

During the evenings and nights, the canopy of the umbrellas can be rotated back towards the corner, offering a high level of versatility.
