Okay, the Poker umbrella is the largest of them all! This multi canopy patio umbrella features one central post, but has four umbrella canopies off of the main post! The Poker umbrella is available in either a 20×20’ or a 26×26’ size. Therefore, the Poker 20×20’ has four 10×10’ umbrella canopies off of the main central post. This is a serious amount of shade umbrella! The 26×26’ size features four 13×13’ umbrella canopies off of the main central post. This is one large patio umbrella!! This is probably the best patio umbrella for a large patio. As not only is this a functional shade umbrella, this patio umbrella makes a beautiful statement! Many restaurant patio umbrellas need to make a statement to “grab” the consumer and catch their attentions. Well, this is certainly the umbrella for that!
The first option in the multi canopy patio umbrella is commonly referred to as the Double umbrella. This shade umbrella features one pole with two umbrella canopies off of the single post. This allows for double the shaded area. The benefit to this umbrella is not losing the space that a second post and base would occupy. This patio umbrella is featured in two sizes, a 10×20’ and a 13×26’. Therefore, with the 10×20’ patio umbrella, there are two 10×10’ canopies from the single post. And in the 13×26’ Double umbrella there are two 13×13’ umbrella canopies from the single umbrella post. The Double Umbrella is a very popular commercial patio umbrella, as it doubles the shaded area.
Now, what is this??? Okay, now you are thinking there cannot possibly be that many options with a simple patio umbrella. Well, think again! The new rage in patio umbrellas, are the multi-canopy patio umbrella. The multi canopy patio umbrella is an umbrella that features one post, but off of that single umbrella post is one, two, or even four umbrella canopies! The advantages of these multi canopy patio umbrellas also known as the giant patio umbrella is that with one pole you can provide more shaded area with more useable space. Therefore, these shade umbrellas are becoming increasingly more popular for restaurant patio umbrellas; as restaurants need to maximize their outside shaded area with the most table space possible.

Although, the cantilever patio umbrella is becoming increasingly popular these days, many still are unfamiliar with this terminology. The cantilever umbrella is also referred to as the offset patio umbrellas. Simply said, the cantilever umbrella is a patio umbrella that has the umbrella post located to the side of the sunshade. Therefore, the sunshade is offset from the pole, hence the other name for these umbrellas is offset patio umbrellas. And yet to just confuse you more, it has yet another name is the side post umbrella. The advantages of having the sunshade of the patio umbrella located to the side, is that there is no wasted space due to the space of the post of the patio umbrella. So, whether you call it a cantilever umbrella, offset umbrella, or even a side post umbrella it may be the right option for you!!
