TUUCI has more than 20 years of experience in creating shady and atmospheric environments. With roots in the maritime world, TUUCI assures you of technical excellence and optimal performance. But TUUCI’s parasols not only perform; they also attract attention with their design. One part of the parasol where design is combined with technology is the mast. The various mast options are discussed below.
Marine Grade Aluminum
The polished & anodized aluminum masts consist of one large contiguous ‘Marine Grade’ aluminum base element. The lightweight material, which is commonly used on sailing yachts, powerboats and offshore structures, offers great strength and protects extremely well against corrosion.
The aluminum can be powder coated or Aluma-teak™ coated, making the umbrella frames available in many different colors. Applying a texture to the aluminum frame preserves the strength and resistance of the aluminum, but makes the parasol look like it is made of wood.
The Northstar Mast features the patented “channel and ridge” system, an advanced construction of four polished edges, the ridges, with 4 profiles in between, the channels. With the ability to mix materials, the Northstar Mast offers unique design combinations that, as is typical of TUUCI, can withstand the most extreme weather conditions.
The profiles are available in teak hardwood, six Aluma-teak™ colors and seven powder-coat colors, allowing the parasol to be completely customized.
The ‘Nautical Teak Hardwood’ mast is characterized by its natural materials and is available in two options: either a mast made entirely of teak or a mast fitted with an aluminum core surrounded by a several centimeters thick layer of teak.
Combining Indonesian teak hardwood with high-grade corrosion-resistant stainless steel components, TUUCI offers the ideal materials for timeless appearance, reliable durability and maximum performance. The teak comes from the largest sustainably forested teak plantation in Indonesia, where it is processed according to the strictest environmental regulations.
