The Kettler 2.5m square parasol is made from a strong powder coated aluminium frame. The canopy has UV50+ protection to shield you from the harmful rays on a bright sunny day. The parasol is easy to operate by a wind up mechanism to open the canopy and adjustable vertically. Comes complete with a fillable base and a night cover. The cover is removeable for cleaning. We recommend taking the parasol down in windy conditions and storing away when not in use.
