Shade from the sun in style with our collection of garden parasols.
Choosing the right garden parasol for your needs
Types of parasol
There are numerous forms of parasols, these include: Cantilever Parasols, Free Arm Parasols and Push up Parasols. Here follows a quick rundown on how each is different from the last.
Cantilever Parasols are so called because of their crank and tilt system; this provides a little more flexibility as to the placement for the parasol and the consequent shade. Our Cantilever Parasols are each of 3 meter square, which provides a large shaded area which is suitable for even the most impressive of garden dining tables.
Free Arm Parasols
Free Arm Parasols are perfect for use in almost any situation; they can hang over tables and bistro sets just as easily as they can over sunbathing areas or loungers and can be adjusted as to which area around their base they shade. All of our free arm parasols are of great value, amongst our range of free arm parasols is the ideal choice of the Kettler Free Arm Parasol; which balances quality, style and price perfectly.
Push Up Parasols
Push up parasols are so called simply because of their umbrella like function. Pushed up and opened, these stylish additions to your garden can also serve to be amongst the lower priced amongst our range. For those who are looking for simplicity and elegance whilst shopping on a budget there is the Portofino Parasol with Tilt.
We love to offer our customers plenty of choice when it comes to style, however we understand that the sheer range of items that we stock can be bewildering, so here we guide you through choosing the right parasol style for the usage that you require.
Perfect parasols for stylish bistro sets
Generally speaking the push up parasols tend to be most popular with bistro sets as they tend to be smaller than the Cantilever parasols (although these can adequately suit bistro sets); a great example of a push up parasol is the Portofino Parasol which represents great value for money and as well as looking great it also features a tilt system to keep you in shade throughout the summer days.
Shopping for a parasol on a budget
For those who may be shopping to a strict budget there is the Kettler Push-up Parasol; this is suitable for any type of garden table or bistro set and its design is simplistic, elegant and has a touch of understated traditional style.
Parasols with the most flexibility
If you need your parasol to move with you throughout the day, from sun bathing to dining then the Kettler Free Arm Parasol will be perfect; this model boasts 9 different locking positions and provides complete versatility.
