Bambrella® has proven to be the highest quality laminated bamboo parasol on the market. One of the reasons is its ability to resist the inherent problem that inferior products have of mould and mildew occurring when bamboo is exposed to the elements.
Bambrella® Sirocco range has a two-piece pole so that the parasol pole can be split, which allows for easy storage and ease of transportation.
The pole connector is made from 304 stainless steel and the screw system is extremely strong. The hub and runner are made from nylon and are designed so that they can be split in half so you can replace the arms. http://www.bambrella.com/sirocco-range.html
