Maanta self-supporting solutions: mini selection guide
Here we want to group together all those solutions that are freestanding and therefore do NOT require a fixed installation on the ground.
It starts with the classic gazebo, also considered by wikipedia a roof structure, has always been a must in outdoor spaces.
Today, there are all shapes of them but especially with the design of the 21st century, they are no longer with sloping "cottage" roofs. The modern gazebo roof is flat and horizontally foldable. Structure capable of covering 10 to 20 square meters is supported by 2 or 4 legs that make it self-supporting. This is also where the our product Maistra, which is resistant up to 38mph of wind (depending on the type of installation), is a gazebo produced with absolute quality raw materials designed specifically for outdoor use. The aluminum and polypropylene are in fact maintenance-free and do not present rust and mold problems. Also suitable for demanding environments such as areas with saltiness (sea), windy areas (mountains), or subject to frequent rainfall.
Another solution for covering an outdoor area is the pergola; this term identifies a self-supporting structure always with 2 or 4 support legs with a flat horizontal roof, capable of covering 150 to 300 square feet. Also by this term many of our customers identify Maistra; the mini Maanta pergola.
In recent years there has been much talk of the bioclimatic pergola, a pergola with an opening roof to vent warm air to the outside. It can be placed in the garden and can normally be closed at the side to use it during the winter.
Then there are the classic and historic wooden pergolas; most commonly used to cover the car from inclement weather.
We can talk more about umbrellas, a simple solution that is supported by a single pole. Practical and quickly foldable, it helps cover very small spaces.
Finally, practical and with an assured scenic effect, we find the shade sails, available from us in three main models, also made to measure, allows covering more than 40 square feet.
