Package contents and giveaways
Despite this there are components that may not be needed; Maanta wants to minimize the impact of its products on the environment for this reason no accessories are included that would later be thrown away.
On this page you will find the included items, optionals, and accessories.
These allow the height of the awning to be adjusted and support the swivel joints equipped with the Rotary Lock pin system.
The pole consists of a supplied galvanised base plate and aluminium body. Aluminium is naturally salt water resistant and rust free!
Two swivel joints are machined from a solid aluminium block with tenths of a millimetre precision so that the tensioned structure can rotate to change the shade cone or to let the rain run off on the desired side.
Included are two rope cleats, made entirely of 316 stainless steel. This simple accessory allows you to keep the two ropes for turning and tilting Maistra in order.
Made entirely of stainless steel and easy to use, it is an indispensable accessory.
The basic kit does not include the ballast slabs, which we recommend to be made of concrete with size 40x40 cm, thickness 40 mm weighing about 14 kg each.
We recommend a ballast of about 50 to 60 kg per base (110-130 lbs).
Maistra base kits do not support slabs thicker than 40 mm (1,5 inches), they may not make the satin plate cover close.
Four plates are sufficient for each support, thus making a total of 8.
Threaded rod and chemical anchoring kits are available on our site, with accompanying instruction guides.
Useful accessory with a unique and modern design, made of sturdy aluminum, will accompany you on any summer evening.
To connect the modules you will only need to purchase the plate in objects.
Additional modules are currently sold by request, you can contact us by phone or email.

If you opt to fix the pole to the ground, remember to wait the time specified by the chemical anchor before stressing the base.
Remember: the side with two pulleys will be the maneuvering side to open/close/tilt Maistra.
You can do this on your own by first fixing one side and then switching to the opposite side, but we recommend asking another person for help.
Simply insert the fabric strips into the lanes of the crossbars and complete the installation.
Yes, Maistra like all freestanding awnings is not snow load certified.
The materials used in Maistra have no problem with the weather, they can be installed in the mountains as well as at the sea. They are not subject to saltiness.
Therefore, closure is recommended in case of snowfall.
Maanta by Bega manufactures and distributes directly through the e-commerce channel; at the moment Maistra is not available custom-made.
The processing cycle is very long and delicate, every cut and hole must be made with precision to the tenth of a millimeter.
For a custom product we will not be able at the moment to offer short lead times as we do by policy on other products.
Yes installation without the optional bases is possible, you will need to anchor the two poles to the ground with the appropriate threaded rods.
If placed on the ground, it will be necessary to make 60x60x60cm (25x25x25 inches) concrete supports.
Maistra can also be installed on a terrace with the optional bases kit.
It is recommended to check the load bearing capacity of the floor slab, the bases alone should be covered with concrete plates weighing a total of 60Kg (132lb) / each.
