Can you recommend a Cantilever Parasol for a Café?

Posting date: 5th March 2013 10:58

Q Can you recommend a Cantilever Parasol for an outside café in the West End of London?

A Further to our discussion just now, attached are the specification sheets for the Serengeti Equinox Cantilever Parasol and Serengeti Eclipse . As I said, for a commercial environment, I would strongly recommend the Equinox rather than the Eclipse as it is much stronger.

In terms of Equinox stock, we have 2 Ecru (natural canvas) in stock in 3.5m square. If you were to order 12 it would take about 4 - 6 weeks for the stock to come from order. The price for the first 2 would be as per the website link above. We would offer a discounted price for the bigger order.

The Equinox would be suitable for medium wind but, as with all parasols, they will need to be "wind managed" so that they are closed when the wind gets too much. If you think your location could be prone to gusting or strong wind, one option is to fix the bases to the ground as this significantly reduces the risk of the parasols falling over. Let me know if you would like to discuss this further as wind can behave very differently in different locations, and as a result I know of no manufacturer that warranties their parasols against wind damage. I can't know your location but I can advise how to make the Equinox as strong as they are capable of being.

Best wishes - Claire
