FILIUS – The small parasol that’s big in quality

FILIUS is the smallest of our centre pole parasols. This parasol for the hospitality industry and retail use is only small when it comes to its dimensions – in terms of quality, convenience of use, design and stability, in contrast, the FILIUS is a top performer in our parasol collection.

Product details

Its lightness makes FILIUS a particularly popular way to provide protection from the sun at outdoor cafés, at markets, as a shelter at events, or for use for decorative purposes. FILIUS is, of course, also an attractive parasol for use in the garden or on the patio at home. The centre pole parasol FILIUS is optionally available with a cable pull (FILIUS FS) or with a crank lift (FILIUS FK).

Remote control next to parasol pole with hand crank
FILIUS is available in one of two models, either with a cable pull (FS) or with a crank lift (FK).

3Valance versions

Two beige canopies with and without valance
Parasol canopy ‘1’ features a classic valance. A valance is a good idea when adding side panels and a print showing your logo. Version ‘2’ does not come with a valance. This makes an understated and modern impression, not only for use at home.

4Canopy bonnet

Green canopy with canopy bonnet
This optional fabric version features an airy, Mediterranean character.

5Pagoda parasol design

Green canopy as pagoda variant and canopy bonnet
The FILIUS with a pagoda-style canopy is an opulent designer parasol that stands out from other parasols. The pagoda system makes it seem like the canopy is fluttering overhead, creating an airy and light impression.

6The parasol frame

Beige canopy with white aluminium frame
The frame is produced using very high-quality extruded aluminium alloy profiles.
  • Parasol pole Ø 55 × 2.5 mm
  • Spoke dimensions 30 × 15 × 2 mm / 25 × 15 × 2 mm
  • Support rail dimensions 25 × 15 × 2 mm

7Connecting elements

Beige canopy with white aluminium frame
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.

9Reinforced spokes

The elegant spokes have been reinforced in the areas subject to particularly high loads by integrating a steel core inside them.

10The frame coating

Four tubes in white, brown and anthracite
The surface of the frame is powder coated, extremely impact and shock resistant, and available in the following colours:

Standard colours:
  • RAL 9010 pure white
  • RAL 9006 white aluminium

Custom colours at no extra charge:
  • RAL 8019 grey-brown
  • RAL 7016 anthracite grey with fine texture

Other custom colours are available for a surcharge.

11The top plate

Beige closed shade with white plastic cover
Elegant, attractive and detachable. Colour harmonises with the frame coating.

12When 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.


Pull the parasol out of the cardboard box, remove the packaging materials, place the parasol in the base and you’re done – it only takes a few minutes.
