The Fortero - Medium/large size, middle mast, high wind resistant, aluminium parasol for domestic or professional use.

With its elegantly designed canopy, our medium-sized parasol is a firm favourite for cafés and restaurants but is also happily at home in private gardens. Its patented low-force opening principle means that, even when used above laid tables, it serves as a flexible solar protection partner as and when required. It is stable in the wind, long-lasting and safe, even when the winds reach 50–70 km/h. Its robust construction and always-taut designer parasol roof are what make the mediumsized Fortero the solar protection king for public squares, patios and pool settings. With a closing height of 85 to 125 centimetres and a practical tensioning lever for fast and lowforce opening, it is clear to see why this parasol is often the first choice for cafés and restaurants.
