What is a Cantilever Umbrella?

Being outside can help you recharge, feel happier and more content, and choosing the right patio umbrella can help you extend your indoor area to the outdoors for relaxing, dining, and entertaining. Whether you are looking to expand the area for your home or for your business, a cantilever umbrella may offer the perfect solution for your needs.

Cantilever umbrellas, or offset umbrellas as they are sometimes called, can offer a multitude of benefits, while allowing you to make the most efficient use of the space you have.

Although cantilever umbrellas have a base, pole, ribs, material, hub, and other mechanisms like typical patio umbrellas, there is one major difference. A cantilever umbrella is suspended and supported by a rod placed to one side rather than in the middle of its canopy.

This arrangement helps to keep the pole out of the way, while allowing you to shade a large area.

Supported by a solid base, a vertical rod rises and connects with an angled horizontal rod creating a triangular attachment. This horizontal rod extends to attach to the top center of a cantilever umbrella. The unique design imparts strength, stability, and safety.

Moreover, versatile cantilever umbrellas can be raised or lowered and tilted to permit movement from left to right, forward and backward or even a full 360-degree rotation, letting you change the angle of your umbrella to help keep you protected at all times from the hot sun or rain showers.

Furthermore, cantilever umbrellas can be easily mounted in a number of ways to save ground space. In fact, they can be mounted outside a deck or balcony rail in order to provide shade on it, without taking up any floor space on the deck or balcony.

Additionally, your patio layout can be effortlessly changed and your umbrella shade placed anywhere you’d like it. Cantilever umbrellas can be placed on the edge of your pool, seating or dining area, rooftop patio or garden area, and simply adjusted for your comfort.

Of course, cantilever umbrellas come in a variety of sizes, colors and features and are available in many different shapes to suit your needs and taste, including square, rectangular, octagonal or round.

Set up quickly and simply, they provide elegant protection from ultra violet rays and wet weather, stylishly year after year.

With Poggesi cantilever umbrellas, it takes only a touch and a push to adjust the umbrella for the perfect angle and setting. You can easily control your umbrella with a handle crank that allows for multiple functions including rotation, tilt and height adjustment of the canopy.

When your outdoor area is the place where you intend quality time to be spent, it makes sense to invest in a cantilever umbrella that will enhance its beauty, enduring the elements and providing shade for many years to come.
