Tradewinds Aluzone with "scope" mechanism

Posting date: 3rd January 2016 11:59

Q I am looking for a centre post parasol. Reasonably wind resistant for a garden. Wooden decking on top of a concrete base. Size approx 3m by 4m. Lighting and heating attachments. Aluminium frame preferred. Referred to website by global parasols who seem to provide what is needed. Prices required. Do you do site vists to discuss and do you do installation.

A Hi Clive

Thankyou for your enquiry. We are just back from Christmas holiday today.

The closest size to your requirement is the Tradewinds Aluzone 2.7m x 3.5m. The Aluzone has a "scope" mechanism that allows the struts to close over a table - normally they would be too long. However, heat and light are not an option. This is only available on our very big parasols, rather like a pub jumbo parasol. You can choose any kind of base for the Aluzone - a mobile concrete one, or a deckmount that can be bolted down to sturdy decking. The prices for both parasol and base options are on the link below - the coloured canopies are more expensive:

Tradewinds Aluzone 2.7m x 3.5m in Ecru

Tradewinds Aluzone 2.7m x 3.5m in Colours

You are right to think that the Tradewinds Aluzone are good sturdy parasols. They are primarily sold into the commercial sector - pubs, restaurants etc and made to last. If you do get a broken strut, then they have replaceable components and you can come back and buy just one strut. Please note, that as with all parasol warranties, wind damage is not covered as it is considered the responsibility of the user to "wind manage" their parasol since wind behaves so differently in different locations. Common sense rules apply: close the parasol when you are not around or when the wind is getting too much for it.

Let me know if you need more help. We do not do site visits or installations for these parasols as they are simple to use and put together.

Best wishes

Claire
