The Lotus 300cm round parasol is easy to use with the crank handle mechanism. This beautiful umbrella with its generously sized canopy will provide you with a very pleasant shade on those balmy, sunny days. The pole is made of extremely strong powder coated aluminium and has a diameter of 38 mm. The canopy is made of 180g/㎡ polyester with a water repellent coating. We would recommend to use a base from at least 25 kg with this parasol. To extend the lifespan, it is advised to use a protective umbrella weather cover.
