Classic pulley system

As Primus Classic, the portable parasol is equipped with a pulley integrated into the plastic hub. Primus Plus is equipped with a comfortable high grade stainless steel pulley.

Technical Details

The Hub – The Heart of every Parasol

The central hub is the core of every parasol. It’s also the component exposed to the greatest loads as all of the struts of the sunshade converge at this location. Primus Classic is equipped with highly resilient and UV-stabilized plastic hubs. They are white or dark grey, depending on the colour of the frame. The Primus Plus parasol comes with hubs made of massive aluminium with a powder coating finish matching the colour of the frame.

Solid aluminium Frame

It’s the inner values which count. Therefore CARAVITA sunshades are built with particularly strong masts and struts. The Primus parasol has a Ø50mm mast (3 mm wall thickness) and 30 x 15 x 2 mm struts. As an option, Primus is available with a slim Ø 38 mm mast which fits into most outdoor tables!

The frame of the parasol is available in white RAL 9016, anthracite grey RAL 7016 or silver anodized. Many more colours are available at an additional fee (see colour chart).

Option

primus-parasol-patio-umbrella-caravita-finial-cap
