Product details

Along with the basic model (MEZZO MG), the MEZZO cantilever parasol is also available with an integrated height adjustment mechanism that uses a gas pressure spring in the parasol shaft (MEZZO MH). Its sleek design and all the different fabrics and colours available make the MEZZO cantilever parasol a real ‘eye-catcher’ for your garden or patio!

2Stability when in use

Connection between frame and canopy
The practical way the canopy of the MEZZO is secured allows it to be opened when placed at an angle.

3The 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.


Crank drive
Just a few turns of the hand crank are all it takes to open and close the MEZZO, and moving it into the preferred position and fixing it in place is equally easy.

5Valance versions

Two magenta-coloured canopies with and without 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.

6Optimal flexibility

Parasol with mobility inscriptions
The canopy can be turned on all 3 axes::
  • Around the pole by 360°
  • Around the cantilever arm by 180°
  • Around the joint axis by 90°

This flexibility of the canopy allows you to align the parasol optimally to block out the sun, or use it as a privacy screen.

7MEZZO MH with height adjustment mechanism

Screen in horizontal movement
More functions – more benefits. MEZZO MH comes with an additional height adjustment mechanism that uses a gas pressure spring integrated into the parasol pole, something that the MG model does not feature. This means that this parasol minimises the physical effort required to adjust it with an effective lifting aid.

8Ergonomic operation

All functional elements have been installed in one place, and the user will find them convenient to operate regardless of the height.

9When not in use

Parasol in white protective cover
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.

The top of the parasol is vaulted, which means the corner spokes are around 3.5 in or 7.1 in deeper respectively than the spokes in the centre (see the diagram below).
