What is a Cantilever Umbrella?
Do you need some shade but cannot fit an umbrella pole in the center of your outdoor seating area? A cantilever umbrella may be your solution. A cantilever umbrella differs from a typical umbrella because it is suspended in the air and supported by a freestanding pole on the side of an outdoor patio area instead of the middle. This versatile shade structure comes in a variety of sizes, fabrics and features and is available in square, octagon, rectangular and round shapes. The fabric choices are endless and some have tilting features which move left and right, forwards and backwards or even rotate 360 degrees. The standard size of cantilever umbrellas range between 9' -13' in diameter, which is perfect for many seating and dining areas. Summertime is the perfect time to invest in this sun chasing designed umbrella and Pacific Patio Furniture carries a wide variety.
The cantilever design places the pole to the side of a seating area, leaving a convenient space under the umbrella that can be adjusted for comfort and maximum shade. The umbrella can be placed on the edge of a dining or seating area, by the edge of a pool, and much more. The tilting and rotating makes this one umbrella seem like several because it can adjust to fit the needs of its location and users.
Bases and Mounting
Regular cantilever umbrellas are supported by durable bases and rods that bend slightly as they stretch higher. A portion of the rod is placed horizontally and is attached on top of the center of the umbrella. Other times, the rod creates a triangular shape with an attachment that goes above the curved section and back down near the vertical portion to provide solidity. These cantilever umbrellas can be mounted to several surfaces to save ground space. For example, mounting one of these umbrellas outside a deck rail provides shade on the deck, yet it does not take up any space on the surface of the deck. This mounting feature makes it easy to put an umbrella in places where you normally would not put one due to its efficient use of space.
