The perfect wooden parasols
Wooden parasols from Glatz combine a traditional aesthetic with outstanding UV protection and optimum ease of use.
A wooden parasol instantly enhances your outdoor area with nostalgic charm.
Depending on the model, Glatz makes its wooden parasols from ash, eucalyptus or teak. All models have two things in common: quality and durability. Glatz has always met the highest standards of material and fabric quality and offered meticulous workmanship so you can enjoy your wooden parasol for many years to come.
Customising your parasol is extremely easy. Wooden parasols are available as centre-pole and cantilever models – and range in size from very small to extremely large. Choose your preferred parasol size, parasol shape, fabric colour, fabric quality and fixation method.
All wooden parasols come with fully compatible accessories such as lighting, protective covers and ground fixations.
The choice between an aluminium and a wooden parasol depends on the ambience of your outdoor space and your personal taste. Wooden parasols look particularly elegant and go wonderfully with dark-coloured garden furniture or country-cottage-style patios. When choosing a product, a useful starting point can be to obtain advice from a Glatz retailer near you.
In addition to its visual charm, one of the features of wood as a natural product is that it changes depending on its exposure to the elements and sunlight. Ash darkens slightly as it weathers, while teak and eucalyptus wood develop a natural, silvery grey patina. If desired, this patina can be rubbed off with a sponge and a little warm water.
Wooden parasols from Glatz generally require very little care. The optimum care depends on the type of wood used for your Glatz model. Cleaning and care tips for all wood types can be found under “Cleaning and Care”.
Glatz wooden parasols feature highly robust, weather-resistant designs. However, Glatz generally recommends storing the parasols in a dry place over winter. If this is not possible, Glatz advises you to place a suitable protective cover over the wooden parasol during the winter months to prevent weather-induced wear. You can find the perfect cover in the Glatz protective cover shop so you can enjoy your wooden parasol as much in the coming spring as you did in the previous year.
Glatz has been developing and producing parasols for over 125 years. It brought its first wooden parasol to the market in 1931. Known as the ALEXO®, it still enjoys impressive sales success in many countries today as a timeless design icon. We have over 90 years of experience with high-quality, long-lasting wooden parasols. By choosing a wooden parasol from Glatz, you are choosing a Swiss quality parasol that will reliably protect you against the sun, gusts of wind, showers and prying eyes.
At Glatz, functionality and design go hand in hand. All wooden parasols are aligned with ergonomic principles and guarantee outstanding ease of use, optimised down to the finest detail.
Wind conditions, space availability and ground conditions are just a few aspects that need to be considered when choosing the perfect wooden parasol. Our specially trained retailers are highly experienced and can offer customised consultation on your search for the optimum shading solution.
