Cinde Ingram -- Casual Living, May 16, 2011
Shade manufacturer TUUCI has announced that it will introduce the Plantation MAX Cantilever at Hospitality Design Expo in Las Vegas, May 18-20, at booth 1528, as well as the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago, May 21-24.
The oversized parasol features TUUCI's exclusive Aluma-TEAK finish combined with durable Armor-Wall Aluminum construction, yielding resistance to sea-side corrosion to maintain a long-grain hardwood finish. The Plantation MAX Cantilever will be available in a natural wood grain.

"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 Cantilever offers graceful and generously proportioned shade to any sun-drenched environment."
Made with a patent-pending, 4:1 tandem-retrieving crank system, the Cantilever provides 144 square feet of shade. 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.
