Product details

Due to its lightness, FILIUS is particularly popular as a sunshade for street cafés, as a market parasol, as a canopy at events or for decorative uses. Of course, FILIUS is also suitable as an attractive sunshade for the private garden or terrace. The FILIUS centre pole sunshade is optionally available with a rope pull (FILIUS FS) or with a crank drive (FILIUS FK).


The FILIUS is available in two versions, with rope pull (FS) or with crank drive (FK).

2Valance variants

The canopy '1' has a classic valance. The valance is useful for side hangings and your logo. The version '2' does not have a valance. This looks simple and modern, not only in the private sector.

3Canopy bonnet

We attach particular importance to careful workmanship, which is why all movement axes are plugged in with detachable bolts. This elaborate manufacturing method guarantees maximum stability and durability as well as easy handling in case of repairs.

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.
