It rotates to allow you to use it in a more dynamic fashion. The Vista range is our line of cantilevered, retractable, umbrella structures.Â These umbrellas use a 5 inch schedule 40 steel, offset column that is coated using a two-coat powder coat process that provides a marine grade finish. The umbrella column can be customized by adding height, incorporating electrical access panels, adding heating brackets, or other site specific modifications. Vista umbrellas are designed to withstand strong winds, but can be closed in approximately 30 seconds by using our removable awning handle on the umbrella winding mechanism. The Vista's offset column allows for full use of the space beneath the canopy without any obstructions. This makes it our most popular choice of umbrella among restaurants that will often install the columns outside of the restaurant patio and cantilever over the tables they are looking to cover.
