The design of this offset umbrella can give you more placement options than a centre pole model. With the support pole set back, you can put it in a corner and still provide shade to various seating areas. Great for behind a conversation set or couch, the canopy reaches out to shield you from the sun, and can even rotate 360° to adjust the shade. This offset patio umbrella has a heavy-duty aluminum pole and a strong steel base. A crank handle raises and lowers the canopy for easy use. The patio umbrella features water-and-fade-resistant fabric that's UV rated 50+.
