Opening systems for parasols

Comparison of all opening mechanisms

Various opening systems are available depending on the size and intended use of the parasols. This overview shows you how they work as well and the pros and cons of the different systems.

Cable pull (SG)

 

The parasol opens by pulling on a cable that hangs down. The slider is moved upwards by the cable until it can be fixed in the final position with a pin.

Advantages:

  • easy and uncomplicated
  • very cheap
     

Disadvantages:

  • limited table clearance
  • lots of efford required for large parasols

Slider (SB)

 

The slider is manually pushed upwards using the handle. As soon as the parasol has opened completely, the position of the slider is fixed by means of a safety pin.

 

Advantages:

  • easy and uncomplicated
  • very cheap

Disadvantages:

  • only suitable for small parasols

Push-up with telescopic function (PS)

 

When the fixing is released in a closed state, the parasol can be opened very easily by means of a spring that is installed inside. The handle can be easily operated with just one hand. The additional telescopic function ensures table clearance, as the height of the parasol pole adjusts accordingly when closing and opening.

Advantages:

  • easy to open, even for large parasols
  • large table clearance due to telescopic function

Disadvantages:

  • parasol is longer and heavier

Here you can find our products with a push-up system.

Crank system with telescopic function (KS)

 

There is a crank on the pole. This is turned until the parasol is completely open. A telescopic function ensures table clearance. Tables therefore do not have to be cleared or moved when opening and closing the parasol with a crank opening system.

Advantages:

  • very easy to open
  • large table clearance due to telescopic function

Disadvantages:

  • parasol is longer and heavier
  • higher price
