DACAPO – For everyone who values versatility

A ball joint allows the canopy to be placed at any angle and be locked in place. The height of the cantilever parasol can be adjusted quickly and easily by using the gas spring that has been integrated into the parasol pole as a standard feature. This makes it really easy to adapt your parasol to the respective position of the sun in no time at all, or turn it into a privacy screen.

2MAY DACAPO (DG) Basic version

Connection between frame and parasol canopy
A ball joint allows the canopy of the DACAPO to be placed at any angle and be locked in place to suit the position of the sun.

3DACAPO (DK) with crank operation for cantilever arm adjustment

Parasol with crank
The parasol can be ordered with an optional horizontal adjustment mechanism for the cantilever arm, which is operated using a crank.

4The parasol frame

The frame is produced using very high-quality extruded aluminium alloy profiles. The surface of the frame is anodised, extremely impact and shock resistant, and available in the colour EV1 anodised silver grey. The spokes are made of spring steel and are powder coated in the colour RAL 9006 white aluminium.

5Valance versions

Two blue parasol canopies with and without a valance
Parasol canopy ‘1’ features a classic valance. Version ‘2’ does not come with a valance. This makes an understated and modern impression, not only for use at home.

6Unobstructed freedom to move

Because DACAPO cantilever parasols are made with a parasol pole on the outside, they provide unobstructed freedom to move around the entire area under the parasol. This leaves you free to use the entire garden, balcony or patio area.

7Extensive parasol canopy adjustment options

The parasol canopy can be adjusted according to the position of the sun, e.g. a 90° position to provide shade from a low-lying sun, or as a privacy screen to shield you from prying eyes.

8Set up and taken down within seconds

An ingenious product to use: Just a few quick movements are all it takes to set up the DACAPO, which is equally quick to fold together for space-saving storage without any disassembly.

9When not in use

When the weather’s not good, the protective cover provided is easy to slide over the parasol. There’s a fixed rod sewn into the protective cover to make it easy to use, and a zip has been integrated as well.
