Our Top 4 Favorite Cantilevers & Why

Posted by Pacific Patio Furniture on

What is the Difference between Cantilever Umbrellas?

Many people are unsure of which Cantilever is best for their space. We are happy to help breakdown the differences between cantilevers so you can choose which is right for you.

Here are a few questions to ask yourself before choosing your Cantilever.
  1. What size or shape works best for my space? Most brands will offer a traditional Octagon, Square, and Rectangle.

  2. Do I have space for the base, on average 36” square? Or will I need an in-ground mount?

  3. Do I get high winds? Will I need something for above average winds?

  4. Traditional styling or Contemporary/Modern?

  5. Do I require additional lighting and/or heating elements?

  6. What is my budget?

Treasure Garden

Treasure Garden is a name that most people are familiar with. From their assortment of quality umbrellas to their outdoor furniture covers. We have all used something from Treasure Garden. They offer an assortment of affordable yet quality Cantilevers. My personal favorite is the AKZ Plus version, which has the most user friendly options. Simply step on the pedal and gently turn the Cantilever on its 360 degree axis. Adjust the tilt from side to side up to 54 degrees, or up and down its main stem. The AKZ Starlux also offers lighted ribs for full use even at night. (Optional battery pack available.)
