Technically Speaking

The proper shade over your dining or seating area can make you feel 20% cooler and provide UV protection. Umbrellas are movable and can be positioned in a weighted base almost anywhere you need them in your outdoor space.

Anchor your umbrella with a weighted base.

Whether under your dining table or freestanding, you’ll want to put your umbrella in a base to prevent it from taking flight. Bases come in a variety of recommended weights depending on the application and size of umbrella. We always recommend lowering the umbrella when not in use.

Care is easy.

Most stains can either be brushed off, rinsed off or be removed using mild soap and water. Rinse thoroughly. Allow fabric to air dry.

Determining the best size and style of umbrella or shade for your space is simple.
