What is an offset umbrella?

What is an offset Umbrella? Everyone knows an umbrella is a great shade solution for a table and chairs but what do you do if you have an outdoor seating or lounging area where a traditional center pole umbrella doesn’t work?

A cantilever or offset umbrella may be your answer! 

A Cantilever Patio umbrella, also known as an Offset or Side Pole umbrella, differs from a typical umbrella because it is suspended in the air and supported by a freestanding pole on the side of an outdoor patio area instead of the middle.

This versatile shade solution comes in a myriad of shapes and sizes, pole materials, fabrics and features, including LED lighting. Some have tilting features allowing the canopy to move left and right, forwards and backwards or even rotate 360 degrees! Cantilever umbrellas range from between 9′ -13′ in diameter, come in square, round, octagon and rectangular shapes and are suited for many seating and dining areas.

At we have a wide variety of cantilever umbrellas. Let one of our Umbrella Specialists help you choose the perfect shade solution for your outdoor area.
