The Fortano - High wind resistant, large size, side mast, aluminium parasol for domestic and professional use

The solid construction, flat roof and high-quality manufacturing techniques make this side-mast parasol a steadfast companion even in stronger winds. Thanks to its high closing height and intelligent technology for synchronous extension and opening of the parasol, Fortano is highly popular in restaurant settings in particular. Its multifunctional crank reflects the cutting-edge level of our parasol technologies. Turning the crank raises the trolley whilst simultaneously opening the parasol roof. Like all the parasols in the F range, Fortano has been specially developed for use in windy spots. With our fixed ground anchors, this parasol can happily withstand wind speeds of up to 55km/h. The windproof shade-giver for restaurant gardens or at home.
