May Dacapo Parasol

Dacapo Parasol

The versitile designer side-post Parasol. It is perfect for domestic use and comes in a range of sizes and parasol shapes. 

With the help of a ball-joint mechanism, the Dacapo canopy can be tilted to any required angle – depending on the position of the sun – and then locked. The standard incorporation of a pneumatic spring in the umbrella mast enables easy height (vertical) adjustment. If requested, parasols can also be supplied with a crank for horizontal operation of the cross arm. In that case order a Dacapo DK.

The Dacapo is ideally suited to both commercial and domestic markets, although its smaller size means it is mostly used in private domestic settings. Despite the smaller size, the side arm means that you have the maximum space underneath the parasol.

Dacapo function

Complete freedom of movement

The position of mast of Dacapo side-post parasols allows completely unencumbered movement in shaded areas. Consequently, you will be able to make full use of your garden, balcony or patio space.

High-quality framework materials

The poles of our sunshades are all made of high quality alloyed, extruded aluminium profiles. Frame surfaces are anodized, highly impact-proof and available in the colour EV1 natural silver-grey. The spokes are of spring steel and powder coated, available in white RAL 9010 or silver RAL 9006.

Ultra-quick opening and closing

A technical tour de force the Dacapo can be opened in next to no time and closed again just as quickly. No need to dismount anything. When closed and folded together, the space-saving parasol can easily be stored away. An advantage that no other side post umbrella can beat.

Maximum movability of the canopy

The canopy of the parasol can be tilted at any angle, depending on the position of the sun. E.g set at an angle of 90, it can protect you from the low rays of the sun or serve as a screen for privacy.

Fabrics & Options
The Canopy covering of the Mezzo is available in all fabrics and colours in the May Umbrellas range.  There is the option to have this parasol with a straight valance or without a valance.

When not in use – the protective cover provided can easily be slipped over the shade during bad weather periods.
