Overhanging Cantilever Parasols or as they are often referred to side arm parasols, are recommended and ideal for people who require totally clear and unhindered space under their canopy. The Commercial Cantilever Parasol maximises both usable space and comfort. A cantilever parasol eliminates the drawback of a centre pole, for example you can position chairs, hammocks, tables etc directly below the canopy. Overhanging Cantilever Umbrellas can be used in many situations including pool side, terrace or patio, providing a unique alfresco environment. Cantilever umbrellas are particularly popular with commercial businesses such as restaurants, cafes and hotels providing the ultimate focal point for any business.
