Cantilever Umbrellas or Sidepost / Spa Umbrellas are our most popular option for providing pool shade and residential backyard shade. Over the years more and more people have discovered the flexibility having the umbrella pole on the side gives over having in the centre. The term 'cantilever' is a commonly used term in architecture and engineering. In the context of an umbrella, "cantilever" simply means that the pole is attached to one end of the umbrella.
Here you'll find a wide range of cantilever umbrellas. The difference in price usually comes down to the factors of how strong / wind tolerant the umbrella is with the more expensive umbrellas being much stronger and able to withstand stronger winds. Fabric types also play a big part in the price of a cantilever umbrella. Typically Acrylic, Sunbrella, and Spuncrylic canopies are of higher quality and than Olefin or polyester canopies. Acrylic canopies are much more fade resistant and typically have higher UV protection factors (50 UPF). As a general rule of thumb, on a high-quality cantilever umbrella, the canopy is at least one third the cost of the overall umbrella.
If you're considering using a cantilever umbrella in a commercial situation such as a Cafe or Restaurant then you should consider the stronger umbrellas in the ranges such as the Revolvashade or the Asta. These have been tested to withstand strong winds. If you're looking at a cantilever umbrella more for home or domestic use then the Savannah is a very popular choice because it combines the perfect balance of style, strength, and design.
