Miami, FL (PRWEB) May 18, 2011
Innovative shade company TUUCI will introduce the Plantation MAX Cantilever at Hospitality Design Expo in Las Vegas May 18-20 at booth 1528 and the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago on May 21-24. The Plantation MAX Cantilever creates a cool retreat with a warm ambiance, timelessly designed for all settings, traditional and contemporary.
“We crafted the cantilever style to create a stable sail over an outdoor living space, blending with its natural surroundings without being obtrusive,” said Dougan Clarke, founder and CEO of TUUCI. “The Plantation MAX Cantilever offers graceful and generously proportioned shade to any sun drenched environment.”
The oversized parasol features TUUCI’s exclusive Aluma-TEAK finish. This state-of-the-art hardwood finish that is combined with TUUCI’s durable Armor-Wall Aluminum™ construction creates a product that is resistant to all types of sea-side corrosion and maintains a long-grain hardwood finish. The Plantation MAX Cantilever will be available in a natural wood grain.
Made with a patent-pending, first-of-its-kind, 4:1 tandem-retrieving crank system, the Cantilever provides 144 square feet of uninterrupted shade and ambience. The Classic canopy style is crowned with TUUCI’s polished Ocean-Sail finial.
“Despite its size and unique design, the Cantilever is very easy to operate,” Clarke said. “Its core strength and detailed construction allow it to easily close over tables and chairs.”
The Plantation MAX Cantilever features a solid, stainless steel-milled fulcrum and automatic telescoping oval-shaped mast with core strength supported by TUUCI’s patented independent bracket hub system and V-MAX™ Strut design.
