DACAPO / MEZZO cantilever hanging parasol

Free-floating sunshade with an expansive range of movement

The free-floating cantilever hanging parasol is our solution for creating shade wherever you want, as it is mounted to the side of the shaded area rather than in the centre. Tilting the umbrella to the angle you want depending on the position of the sun is child’s play. It offers more room for wherever you would like to sit in your garden, balcony or terrace.

Our cantilever hanging parasol is weather and waterproof; it is also supplied with a protective cover to help keep it like new. It is extremely functional and available in a wide range of attractive colours and shapes.

The variable cantilever hanging parasol, for those who like things flexible

This unique cantilever hanging parasol offers unrestricted freedom of movement as it is mounted to the outside of the shaded area instead of in the middle. The umbrella is moved at all angles over a ball joint, which then locks it firmly in place. Depending on the model, it can be opened/closed and adjusted both vertically and horizontally using a hand crank. The patented mounting fixture for the umbrella allows it to be opened even when the parasol is at an angle, and guarantees maximum security of the suspended part.

The frame is made from high-quality, anodised silver-grey aluminium profiles. The umbrella spokes are made from powder-coated spring steel with a white aluminium finish.

The covering made from waterproof and water-resistant awning fabric provides excellent UV-protection. The fabrics are resistant to hot and cold conditions, and are available in a choice of different variants and colours.

Each size of sunshade comes with the corresponding base and appropriate ballast weight and is delivered with a protective cover for winter storage.

The height of the MEZZO (MH) cantilever hanging parasol’s basic model (MG) can be adjusted up to 35 cm using the built-in gas spring in the sunshade pole.

Even the DACAPO (DK) basic model (DG) has a built-in height adjustment and the cantilever arm can be adjusted horizontally using the crank handle.

1. Fabrics

All of Schenker Storen’s carefully selected fabrics are tested brand textiles and have a long service life. For our cantilever hanging parasol, we offer 100% premium acrylic in different qualities and designs to suit various needs, such as UV-protection and reflection.

The fabrication method also plays an important role. That is why some fabrics are unsuitable for certain applications.

2. Fixed valance

If the sun is a little lower in the sky or you would like to create a Mediterranean mood with your cantilever hanging parasol, the fixed valance is the perfect solution. The valance protects against prying eyes and blinding glares.

3. Mobile mounting options

Galvanised standard frame
Here the parasol is mounted without the addition of ballasts, such as steel or concrete plates. If it is set up in an exposed location, the ballast is increased and the stand frame is doubly supported.

Granite base, grey
The granite base weighs 100 kg. It has a polished surface and is fitted with four recessed grips and a top cover made from stainless steel. Dimensions: Ø 70 cm, height 10 cm.

4. Fixed mounting options
