Shade for your outdoor area
On hot summer days, a parasol from Glatz provides the perfect shade for your patio and allows you to enjoy a cosy get-together. Choose the right colour from over 70 colours, and transform your patio into a real oasis of well-being. From the size, shape and colour to the accessories, everything about a Glatz balcony parasol is tailored to your outdoor space.
When you think of a parasol, a centre-pole parasol often comes to mind – the classic parasol. Here the mast, or pole, is in the middle of the parasol roof. Glatz offers centre-pole parasols in a wide variety of shapes and sizes – for a small seating area or a spacious patio.
Cantilever parasol/free-arm parasol
Cantilever parasols, also known as free-arm parasols, are real eye-catchers and are a wonderful choice for small and large patios. Unlike the centre-pole parasol, the parasol pole is located on the side and not in the middle. This allows the space under the parasol roof to be used optimally.
Giant parasols are particularly popular for hotels and restaurants. However, the giant parasol is also suitable for private households, provided there is enough space on the patio. A giant parasol creates huge areas of shade. Glatz offers giant parasols for patios with spans of up to eight metres!
For over 125 years, we have been providing high-quality shade with optimal UV protection. Glatz has always been one of the leading parasol manufacturers in Europe and around the world. No matter how challenging your shading project is, we will always find the right individual solution.
The most appropriate parasol model depends on the conditions of your patio. If space is limited, the cantilever parasol is the best choice, thanks to its flexibility. If your patio is in a wind-exposed area, you should select a centre-pole parasol because of its stable construction. We will gladly advise you individually on the best parasol for your patio.
First and foremost, the choice of parasol shape depends on your personal taste. However, if several parasols are to be placed next to each other on your patio, it is better to go for a rectangular parasol roof in order to achieve uninterrupted shade.
Of course, Glatz offers giant parasols for patios with spans of up to eight metres. Since every outdoor area is different, we offer you over 20,000 possible combinations to configure the parasol that perfectly meets your needs. Customised solutions are also possible.
There is plenty for you to choose from. You can choose from over 70 different colours. All Glatz fabrics are of the highest quality. These high-quality fabrics offer the maximum possible UV protection with a remarkably long fading period.
To allow you to spend more time on the patio after sunset, the FORTELLO® LED model, for example, features practical and dimmable LED lights. However, there is also the option of attaching variable LED spotlights – such as our Osyrion spot – to any parasol model.
All parasols are tested extensively in the wind tunnel and are designed for high wind stability. This is always subject to the use of a fixed anchor in the ground and a horizontally positioned parasol roof in order to withstand wind speeds of up to 100 kilometres per hour.
We guarantee very high UV protection of over 98 per cent for all patio parasols. Glatz provides your skin with the best protection against dangerous UV rays.
Our parasol fabrics are designed for optimum weather protection and textile feel. Depending on the fabric quality of the canopy, a water column of > 350 mm is achieved. Sociable get-togethers can therefore continue under the patio parasol despite a short, light shower.
The parasol model and the conditions of your patio determine the right choice of fixation. In principle, a distinction is made between mobile and permanent fixation solutions. If the parasol is to be placed in a fixed location on the patio, we recommend a ground socket set in concrete. If you prefer more flexibility in the location of your patio parasol, a parasol base with castors is more appropriate. It is important that you use an original accessory for the fixation, as this is the only way to guarantee wind stability.
Depending on the model, you can open your parasol with a hand crank, tensioning lever, runner, pulley system or remote control via a motor drive.
Small stains can be removed easily with a soft brush. Never use aggressive detergents. In case of tougher stains, it is best to contact a specialist.
Even though only high-quality materials are used in the manufacture of each parasol, we recommend using a protective cover in bad weather and during the cold winter months to protect your parasol.
Glatz not only offers parasols and protective covers, but also a wide range of original accessories that perfectly match your patio parasol.
Despite the robust construction of Glatz parasols, something can still break occasionally. Please contact your local Glatz dealer if this happens. Glatz carries original spare parts for each model that are 100% compatible with your Glatz parasol.
