Acrylic awning fabric (standard)

The tried and tested acrylic awning fabric is manufactured from 100% spinning nozzle dyed brand acrylic fabric. That means that the colour pigments – unlike in classic yarn dyeing – are applied during the fibre production. This ensures reliable protection against damaging UV radiation and permanently guarantees brilliant colours / constant weather and light-fastness. Furthermore, the acrylic fabric is especially tear-resistant and also dirt and water-repellent thanks to its impregnation with a special protective agent. The reliable solution for long-term outdoor use.

  • Water-proof up to 300-370 mm water column, EN 20811
  • High colour and weather fastness (7-8) of 8
  • Water and dirt-repellent
  • 100% acrylic 285–300 g/m²
  • Commercial printing possible on canopy and valance

Go to fabric selection…

Acrylic awning fabric LUMERA

The innovative Lumera acrylic fabric is woven with the special CBA fibre (Clean Brilliant Acrylic). Along with all the benefits of the acrylic fabric, this provides even more bonuses. The acrylic multifilament fibre has a smoother and denser surface. This means that the colours turn out richer and more radiant and the fabric’s luminance is increased for a long time.

  • Water-proof up to 460 mm water column, EN 20811
  • High colour and weather fastness (7-8) of 8
  • Water and dirt-repellent
  • 100% acrylic 290 g/m²
  • Commercial printing possible on canopy and valance

Go to fabric selection…

Swela Sunvas Uni

This 100% polyester fabric has an innovative and effective dirt and water-repellent SNC impregnation. This makes the fabric air-permeable, weather-proof and resistant to rooting. The fabric also has a high elasticity without permanent stretching. It is therefore optimally suited for outdoor use.

  • Water-proof up to 350 mm water column, EN 20811
  • High light and weather fastness (7-8) of 8
  • Chlorine fastness (4-5) of 5
  • Polyester mesh with SNC impregnation
  • Surface weight approx. 310 g/m²
  • Water and dirt-repellent
  • Excellent sun protection (UPF 50+)

Frame colours for masts and struts

You can find over 200 RAL colours here.

High-grade hub

High stability: The Samara parasol is equipped with an especially strong and solid aluminium hub. Powder coating is available in desired RAL colour.

Smooth crank

Extremely easy to use: Samara can be opened and closed with a detachable stainless steel crank. The mechanism inside the mast ensures that the parasol can be closed easily with minimal physical effort.

Sophisticated telescopic system

The advantage: the telescopic system extends the mast when closing! Tables and patio furniture can stay where they are.

Stable struts

The parasol struts, made of 2 mm thick aluminium tube, are reinforced with special profiles in sections under particular strain.

Parasol bases

Here you will find a parasol base to suit every parasol. CARAVITA offers a wide range of models for all purposes in many different colours and shapes. Learn more…

Ground sleeves and pole fittings

Frame colours for masts and struts

Easy-Lift-Balance system

Supremo has a particularly innovative sliding mechanism: With the tap of a finger on the locking switch, the parasol automatically unfolds halfway using its own weight. All that’s left to do is lightly push the handle upward and lock it. This system allows for quick and easy handling, even with large parasols.

Struts with double support

The double strut hub provides double support for the main struts, to which the fabric is attached. An interior aluminium profile provides additional strut support for large parasols. This makes the parasol especially robust and wind-stable.

Stainless steel handle with locking switch

Quality in all parts – the stainless steel handle of the Supremo is practical as well as especially stable! When opening and closing the parasol, its locking switch snaps into place automatically.

Sophisticated telescopic system

The advantage: the telescopic system extends the mast when closing! Tables and patio furniture can stay where they are.

Elegance – Integrated strut light

With the integrated Elegance LED strut light, you can make any patio shine. Designed to be elegant and unobtrusive, the modern LED strips provide pleasant light. The lights are easily switched on and off via the central switch on the mast or via remote control. The latter also allows you to dim the lights. Also available with coloured LED light strips.

Radiant heater

With integrated heating for Big Ben, you can provide comfortable temperatures even on cold days. All wires are securely concealed inside of the frame. The detachable radiant heaters are simply plugged into the connections at the strut ends.
Lights and heating can be switched on and off individually using the central switch at the top of the mast.

Features

Durable design

Only the best materials and extra strong aluminium profiles are used in the robust design of Big Ben. The solid mast has a diameter of 84 mm and a wall thickness of 5 mm, making it stronger than most others in its class.

Practical alignment guide

This guide greatly simplifies the erection of large parasols. Simply screw adjusting screws into ground sleeve or mobile base. Position the parasol. Thread the alignment guide into the screw and push the parasol up. Then simply screw in place and it’s all done.

Wind-stable up to 100 km/h!

Its solid design makes Big Ben extra robust. To prove this, the professional parasol was tested by structural engineers in a wind tunnel, where the 3 x 3 m version can withstand even strong winds of up to 100 km/h!

Telescopic system

The advantage: the telescopic system extends the mast when closing! Tables and patio furniture can stay where they are.

Plus X Award for Big Ben Freestyle

The Big Ben Freestyle was awarded the Plus X Award 2018/2019 in the categories High Quality, Design and Functionality.

The Plus X Award is the innovation prize for brand quality. A panel of judges, made up of experts representing different sectors, awards the quality seals for the innovation prize: Innovation, Design, High Quality, Operating Comfort, Functionality, Ergonomics and Ecology. The approach of the Plus X Award is unique. Compared to other competitions, which consider themselves mostly design awards, the Plus X Award takes a nuanced approach with its seven quality seals. The Plus X Award quality seals are thus not only a benchmark for the best products, but also an unmistakable sign of brand quality.

Multicube

The Gabione Multicube is made up of robust steel cages with wood covering and is the ideal replacement for conventional parasol bases with flagstones. The mobile Multicube creates a comfortable atmosphere for additional guests and ensures flexibility when arranging your outdoor area – without having to install ground sleeves.

Acrylic awning fabric (standard)

The tried and tested acrylic awning fabric is manufactured from 100% spinning nozzle dyed brand acrylic fabric. That means that the colour pigments – unlike in classic yarn dyeing – are applied during the fibre production. This ensures reliable protection against damaging UV radiation and permanently guarantees brilliant colours / constant weather and light-fastness. Furthermore, the acrylic fabric is especially tear-resistant and also dirt and water-repellent thanks to its impregnation with a special protective agent. The reliable solution for long-term outdoor use.

  • Water-proof up to 300-370 mm water column, EN 20811
  • High colour and weather fastness (7-8) of 8
  • Water and dirt-repellent
  • 100% acrylic 285–300 g/m²
  • Commercial printing possible on canopy and valance

Acrylic awning fabric LUMERA

The innovative Lumera acrylic fabric is woven with the special CBA fibre (Clean Brilliant Acrylic). Along with all the benefits of the acrylic fabric, this provides even more bonuses. The acrylic multifilament fibre has a smoother and denser surface. This means that the colours turn out richer and more radiant and the fabric’s luminance is increased for a long time.

  • Water-proof up to 460 mm water column, EN 20811
  • High colour and weather fastness (7-8) of 8
  • Water and dirt-repellent
  • 100% acrylic 290 g/m²
  • Commercial printing possible on canopy and valance

  • Water-proof up to 350 mm water column, EN 20811
  • High light and weather fastness (7-8) of 8
  • Chlorine fastness (4-5) of 5
  • Polyester mesh with SNC impregnation

Frame colours for masts and struts

You can find over 200 RAL colours here.

Motor drive with remote control

The motorised Big Ben offers top-class convenience! With the press of a button on the remote control, several parasols can easily be opened or closed at the same time – and in only two minutes! An unbeatable advantage for restaurant owners – it’s never been so easy to use large parasols.

Elegance – Integrated strut light

With the integrated Elegance LED strut light, you can make any patio shine. Designed to be elegant and unobtrusive, the modern LED strips provide pleasant light. The lights are easily switched on and off via the central switch on the mast or via remote control. The latter also allows you to dim the lights. Also available with coloured LED light strips.

Radiant heater

With integrated heating for Big Ben, you can provide comfortable temperatures even on cold days. All wires are securely concealed inside of the frame. The detachable radiant heaters are simply plugged into the connections at the strut ends.
Lights and heating can be switched on and off individually using the central switch at the top of the mast.

Parasol bases

Here you will find a parasol base to suit every parasol. CARAVITA offers a wide range of models for all purposes in many different colours and shapes. Learn more…

Ground sleeves and pole fittings

Ground sleeves are parasol bases to be set in concrete. Depending on the quality of the ground, ground sleeves are available in different lengths. The upper part of the ground sleeve can be removed. The part remaining in the ground is then at ground level. Learn more…

Features

Durable design

Only the best materials and extra strong aluminium profiles are used in the robust design of Big Ben. The solid mast has a diameter of 84 mm and a wall thickness of 5 mm, making it stronger than most others in its class.

Practical alignment guide

This guide greatly simplifies the erection of large parasols. Simply screw adjusting screws into ground sleeve or mobile base. Position the parasol. Thread the alignment guide into the screw and push the parasol up. Then simply screw in place and it’s all done.

Wind-stable up to 100 km/h!

Its solid design makes Big Ben extra robust. To prove this, the professional parasol was tested by structural engineers in a wind tunnel, where the 3 x 3 m version can withstand even strong winds of up to 100 km/h!

Telescopic system

The advantage: the telescopic system extends the mast when closing! Tables and patio furniture can stay where they are.
