Summer is coming. The sun when eating al fresco too. Whether on a balcony, a terrace or a garden, the parasol remains an essential. The cantilever parasol, the rectangle parasol and the tilting parasol are the essentials of the season.
The deported parasol
What is a deported parasol?
A deported parasol is a form of parasol with a removable base. The user can change the orientation of the canvas depending on the orientation of the sun, light and heat.
It is very functional. Indeed, it is possible to follow the orientation of the sun as the day progresses. There is no need to have a lot of strength as it does not need to be lifted or moved. You just have to rotate the arm to which the canvas is hung.
Many deported parasols exist on the market. Several shapes are available: round, square, etc. The choice will depend on the desired shadow perimeter. If it is for a small balcony, it is better to take a small deported parasol with a small canvas. But, be careful not to forget to measure the height to prevent it from touching the balcony above.
Rotation and tilt are its two essential functions.
The choice can also be made on the subjects:
- Aluminum and steel
These materials are the most widespread and the strongest. In addition, stainless materials, such as stainless steel, are more resistant to bad weather and sun. It must also be resistant to bad weather such as wind or even UV rays to prevent the canvas from tearing or fading.
The many models can be matched according to your wishes with the exterior decoration of the garden, the terrace or the balcony. To enjoy it all year round and especially in winter, there are also heated parasols.
The rectangle parasol

Practical, the base slides easily into the central hole of the table. Thus it completely protects seated people from UV rays.
Mix and match: the tilting parasol
The tilting parasol is a good compromise between a rectangular parasol and a deported parasol. It has the same functions as the two mentioned above. So that the canvas can extend or fold, it suffices to actuate the crank with which it is equipped, by turning it in one direction or the other.
The principle: by tilting it on one of its sides, it comes very close to the deported parasol. Like any accessory, the many models that exist offer the possibility of matching materials and colors to the entire decoration.
