RIALTO – The cantilever parasol for discerning users

The attractive cantilever parasol makes an impression with its robust workmanship and its durability. A special plus point: Individual parasols can be interconnected to form groups of parasols or large parasols with just one single pole – ideal for use, for example, in outdoor eateries at restaurants or hotels, for a pavement café or a bistro with an outdoor dining area, but also for trade fairs and events, swimming pools, large foyers, and much more.

2360° rotation

Canopy with 360° graphic
All ground anchors are equipped with a special clamp. This allows the parasol to rotate all the way around as the sun moves across the sky.

3Groups of parasols

3 canopies connected to form a group.
Shading using groups of parasols is specifically tailored for large outdoor dining areas. Because its pole is so sturdy, the RIALTO can be fitted with up to four canopies. Groups like this are a real eye-catcher for a patio with a difference.


Remote control next to parasol mast with hand crank
The cantilever parasol is opened and closed using a removable stainless steel hand crank that is easy to turn. The same hand crank is used on the RIALTO with pendulum adjustment to fix the canopy in place at an angle.

5Valance versions

Two magenta-coloured canopies with and without valance
Parasol canopy '1' features a classic valance. The valance can be printed with your logo. Version '2' does not come with a valance. This makes an understated and modern impression, not only for use at home.

6The parasol frame

Magenta-coloured canopy with white aluminium frame
The frame is produced using very high-quality extruded aluminium alloy profiles.
  • Parasol pole Ø 76 × 3 mm
  • Spoke dimensions 30 × 15 × 2 mm / 25 × 15 × 2 mm
  • Support rail dimensions 20 × 15 × 2 mm

7Connecting elements

We place particular value on meticulous workmanship, which is why all moving axes are secured using bolts that can be removed. This complex manufacturing process guarantees maximum stability and durability, and ensures ease of handling in the event of any repairs.

8The canopy

The self-tensioning telescopic spring system keeps the canopy taut even after years of use, and can absorb dynamic wind loads. The canopy is easy to replace in combination with the stainless steel hooks.

9When not in use

Parasolin 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. Please observe dimension K in relation to ground clearance.

10The frame coating

A tube in white
The surface of the frame is available powder coated in pure white RAL 9010, and is extremely impact and shock resistant. Other custom colours (powder coating) are available for a surcharge.
