2MAY DACAPO (DG) Basic version

Connection between frame and canopy
A ball-and-socket joint allows the canopy of the DACAPO to be tilted and locked in any desired position, depending on the position of the sun.

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

Parasol with crank
The parasol can optionally be ordered with a horizontal adjustment of the cantilever arm by means of a crank operation.

4The frame

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

5Valance variants

Two blue canopies with and without valance
The canopy '1' has a classic flounce. The version '2' does not have a flounce. This looks simple and modern, not only in the private sector.

6Unhindered freedom of movement

DACAPO free-arm parasols offer unrestricted freedom of movement in the entire parasol area thanks to the external parasol mast. This allows you to use garden, balcony and terrace areas without restriction.

7Very high mobility of the canopy

The canopy can be adjusted according to the position of the sun, e.g. 90° position for protection from slanting sun or as a privacy screen from prying eyes.

8Set up and dismantle in seconds

Simply ingenious to use: the DACAPO can be set up in just a few steps and just as quickly folded up and stowed away in a space-saving manner, without the hassle of disassembly.

9When not in use

Parasol in white protective cover
During periods of bad weather, the protective cover provided can simply be put over the parasol. The protective cover already has a fixed rod sewn in for easy operation as well as an integrated zip.
