Offset umbrellas (otherwise known as cantilever style umbrellas) are distinguished by their side mount configuration that offers several distinct advantages including supreme versatility and style. An offset or cantilever configuration refers to umbrellas with a canopy that extends off to the side from a weighted base to provide shade to an area that angles out and away from the pole support. Traditional umbrella models feature pole supports that rise and support the canopy of an umbrella from its center. The unique offset or side configuration of cantilever umbrellas free up special real estate (otherwise occupied by a traditional center pole umbrella) to provide added usable space so that you have an open area to arrange your outdoor and patio furniture in any design. Because an offset umbrella is only anchored on one end, an offset or cantilever umbrella requires sound structural design with a solid anchor base to avoid tipping. LuxeDecor carries an extensive selection of high-quality, sturdy offset and cantilever umbrellas in various sizes, shapes, and colors to bring stylish and innovative shade to your outdoor living space.
LuxeDecor carries a diverse inventory of offset and cantilever umbrellas, including styles crafted from fiberglass, wood, and aluminum materials to ensure durable and well-made models that can resist safety hazards (such as tipping) and withstand natural weather conditions (including wind, rain, and even snow). The heft and weight of cantilever and offset style umbrellas is vital in the structural integrity of their construction making them more difficult to maneuver and move around than traditional center pole umbrella models. Many offset and cantilever style umbrellas, however, feature some of the same functionality features of traditional center pole umbrellas, while also offering their own unique advantages that are characteristic to their design. Since they cannot be easily moved, many offset and cantilever style umbrellas are equipped with tilt, rotational, and adjustment mechanisms so that you’re able to adjust the height and angle of your umbrella in an efficient and safe manner. You can be assured that your guests can stay under the shade without the need to rearrange chairs as the sun sets. Crank handles are usually also the method used to deploy offset style umbrellas and cantilevers. Cantilever umbrellas are offered in a variety of colors, shapes, and styles at LuxeDecor so that you can find the most stylish option that will complement your outdoor setting.
