Product details

The success of ALBATROS is no coincidence, because real professionals are also at work in the production of the classic among the catering parasols. The result: MAY brand quality.

5The covering

The self-tensioning telescopic spring system tightens the covering even after years and dynamically absorbs wind loads. The combination with the stainless steel hooks makes it easy to change the covering.
