Cantilever Parasols

Cantilever Parasols

What are the advantages of cantilever parasols?

The great advantage of the cantilever parasol is obvious: It is much easier to provide a roof over, for example, a dining table on the terrace or balcony, and there is no disturbing post extending through the center of the table. Side-post or cantilever parasols are a popular choice in the gastronomy industry. They are space-saving and beyond that look very elegant. This makes them an asset to any outdoor area in restaurants or cafes. May’s cantilever parasols are particularly well suited for private use in the garden or on the balcony or terrace, as well as for small commercial areas.

Cantilever Parasol

Cantilever parasols from May are the ideal parasols for your garden, terrace or lounge area, as well as for use in a small commercial area.

The cantilever technique offers maximum space under the entire parasol.

Under a cantilever or side-post parasol, one understands a parasol, which has its post on the side rather than in the middle like a traditional parasol. This allows it to cover a larger area, and it is easier to place a table under it.
