Simple Fold by ShadeArt UK
Alterra - ShadeArt’s newest side post parasol or umbrella is designed for the volume
commercial customer. Alterra is made with a light weight, yet high strength,
alloy mast, boom, and canopy frame with a satin marine anodized finish. The
Alterra mast and boom can also be finished with one of over thirty optional
timber colours from our amazing new timber look – genuine looks and
beauty without the maintenance. To extend Alterra’s life, the winch and
steel connections are all from high grade stainless steel.
Alterra incorporates a unique simple fold boom which provides excellent
wind stability, while also being easy to fold for storage when not required. Altera
is especially good for between seasons as the canopy frame can be unbolted and
stored out of the weather with the mast and boom folded discretely in situ. Thus,
minimising canopy damage, wear and especially grime and dirt.
For maximum shade cover on hot or sunny days, Alterra includes the
ShadeArt rotation lever lock, so the canopy can be rotated with ease as
the sun moves throughout the day.
