Tradewinds Aluzone 2.7m x 3.5m Rectangle Parasol

Dear Tony

Thankyou for your enquiry just now. Attached are the full dimensions on the parasol and an image of the pulley system with the hub on the wooden parasols but the Aluzone is the same principle. Here is a link to the Tradewinds Aluzone Parasol – Rectangle

The dimensions on the 60kg stone granite base is 600 x 600mm x 80mm. As I said, in terms of wind resistance you are best off with a fixed base to avoid the parasol blowing over. In your exposed position, you will need to “wind manage” any parasol you have. Common sense rules apply: close the parasols when you are not around or when the wind is gutting too much. Please note that no parasol manufacturer will warranty against wind damage as this is seen as the responsibility of the user since wind behaves so differently in different locations.

The Tradewinds Aluzone Parasols are good quality, strong parasols – single pole, no tilt or rotation in order to maximise strength.

We currently have stock so delivery would be a few days from confirmed order and payment.

Best wishes

Claire

Paraflex Sidepost parasol pole and wall brackets

Q Can I slice off a section of the 2.6m pole of the Paraflex Side post 2.5m parasol as I have an impeding soffit board?

A I confirm that if you cut the pole down smoothly, there would be no problem slicing off a section.

The Paraflex 2.6m pole is that is ellipse in shape, not round with one sliding groove for the arm. It is in fact the pole that is also used for Shadesails, also made by Umbrosa in Belgium.. See the Ingenua pole instructions attached. The pole will come with a section that makes it either angled or vertical – you would want it vertical. The sliding piece would also not been needed by you as you would slide the arm of the parasol down instead.

Paraflex wall fixing bracket instructions are also attached.
