Serengeti Wallmount parasol and alternatives

Posting date: 12th June 2013 14:36

Dear Sara

Further to your discussion with Laura earlier today, I confirm that we have the following alternatives for you.

Serengeti Equinox 3.5m Square in Ecru

The Serengeti Equinox is our most robust side post parasol so would be the optimum solution for a windier area. It is advisable to bolt it down to increase the times when it can be left open. You will see from the link below that the Equinox does not have a deckmount option, but you could buy the inground base and not use the bottom of the base, simply bolting down the top section very securely to an existing secure ground. Please see inground base instructions attached which should make this clearer.

Serengeti Equinox Cantilever Parasol

A 3.5m square parasol will cover a table 2.3m x 1.0m, giving 60cm each end of the table to cover those seated. The specification is attached.

Serengeti Wall mounted Parasol 3m Square in Ecru

The Serengeti Eclipse Wall mounted version has a spec attached showing that from wall to furthest side of parasol is 3.35m. Ideally you need 3.75m extension (2.7m to the centre of the table + 0.55m for other half of table + 0.50 cm for the seating) so this may not suit you. However, here is the link

Serengeti Eclipse Cantilever Parasol 3m Square in Ecru

You could have a Serengeti Eclipse Cantilever 3m square or 3.2m octagonal. Again you would be advised to bolt the parasol down. In terms of fitting to your table, if you want to shade people sitting at either end of your table, you need 3.30m (2.3m+50cm each end). The Eclipse are short of this, but they do have a tilt function so this is only a problem when the sun is directly overhead.

Serengeti Eclipse Cantilever Parasol 3m

The Eclipse is the domestic version of the Equinox. It is a good quality cantilever, but not as strong as the Equinox which is commercial grade or more suitable for windy locations. It all depends how windy you are. For first floor terraces or exposed hillsides, I would always recommend an Equinox. You may want to discuss this further with me? I understand that you have had your fingers burnt with cantilever parasols that kept falling over in the past!

Best wishes

Claire
