How does a cantilever parasol work?

A cantilever parasol hangs from a beam extending sideways from the supporting post. Base weights or ground bolts keep it balanced. The beam and post are connected by two hinges. You can adjust these to alter the height and orientation of the parasol, and a hand crank opens and closes the parasol.


Do cantilever parasols tilt?

Cantilever parasols are extremely versatile and can be adjusted and tilted. This means you can shade from the sun no matter what time of day it is without having to move the base. It also allows you tilt the parasol horizontally to use as a windbreaker.


How to secure a cantilever parasol

To ensure your cantilever parasol doesn’t blow away on a breezier day, invest in a parasol weight. These weights can be filled with water or sand and will ensure your parasol stays put. When not in use, your cantilever parasol should be kept closed. This will also prevent weather damage.


All of our 3m and 2.7m cantilever banana parasols are designed with functionality and durability in mind, as well as appearance. Wind up crank functions allow you to quickly and easily open and close your parasol with very little effort. Many of our parasols can be handily folded away to save space in your garden or patio. They are all carefully constructed to last. A combination of intelligent design and robust materials means your parasol will last for many summers to come.


How to assemble a cantilever parasol

Most parts slot together and secure with hex bolts or screw locks. Start with the base cross-pieces, then bolt on the base pole. Attach the sides and corners and stabilise the base with slabs, sandbags or ground bolts. Fit the base cover and slide the tube rim onto the pole, followed by the umbrella assembly.
