It's two days since the Vernal Equinox, and Spring seems to have finally arrived with some lovely warm sunshine, albeit mixed in with some slightly premature April showers!
It's a great time for us to announce another new range of replacement canopies that we have now designed, tested, and manufactured, due to arrive with us during the Summer of this year. We've continued to focus our efforts on increasing our range of Parasol Replacement Canopies, and are pleased to announce 6 new versions, all designed specifically for cantilever models rather than the standard "free-standing" versions.
For those who don't know, a cantilever parasol is one where the supporting pole is not central - it instead stands to the side of the canopy, with the weight of the canopy cantilevered by the weight of the base.
You would be right to note that due to the cantilever design these canopies cannot usually be removed from the frame, and therefore it would be reasonable to think that it would not be possible to fit a replacement. However our canopies each have specially designed features which allow them to be fitted to the frame despite this. So whilst you may not be able to conveniently remove that old and tired original canopy (someone grab the scissors!), you an can be confident that we've thought of everything when it comes to fitting our replacements.
We believe that we're the only company in the UK who sell replacement canopies to fit Cantilever Parasols.
We should take this opportunity to advise that our six new models of replacement canopy have only been designed to fit one specific model each. In each instance we have tested our replacement on the intended model of parasol, and made all the adjustments necessary to allow it to be fitted to the cantilever frame. In some instances this means a velcro strip to fasten and unfasten part of the vent, or sometimes a larger strip on the main section of the canopy. Each model of parasol is unique and each of our canopies are uniquely designed to fit their intended model.
We therefore ask all customer to observe the compatibility information with particular care, and if it is your intention to use one of these canopies for a model not shown then please do check the photos, description, and measurements. If unsure, please get in touch.
