Mezzo Parasol

The easy to handle side post parasol from May Umbrellas. This residential umbrella is designed to be operated easily and give you the ultimate protection from the sun.

The Mezzo umbrella is versatile and perfect for use in your garden. The practical canopy lock allows you to open and close the parasol when it is in an inclined position and prevents the canopy from swinging in the wind, giving the umbrella greater stability.

The operational mechanism of the parasol is conveniently positioned and can easily be adjusted to suit the height of your choice.  With the help of a crank mezzo can be opened and closed, positioned and locked in next to no time.

The Mezzo is not just practical, but an incredibly aesthetically appealing parasol, that looks great on almost any property.

More functions – more benefits!

The Mezzo not only has the functions of the standard Mezzo, it also offers the possibility of effortless height adjustment.

Thanks to a pneumatic spring incorporated in the support pole, the physical strength needed to raise or lower the parasol is effectively reduced to a minimum.

The canopy on the Mezzo can be rotated around all three axes:

  • 360° around the the support pole
  • 180° around the cross arm
  • 90° around the joint axis

Such unique freedom of movement makes it possible for the user to adjust the parasol to the changing position of the sun or to use it as a protective screen.
