Umbrellas & Parasols (Portable Shade Options)

Umbrellas & Parasols are great if you’re looking  for a more portable shade option for your garden or business. Providing protection from wind and sun, they’re great for any occasion, from garden parties and barbecues to outdoor seating areas at cafes and restaurants.

Available in a range of sizes, umbrellas and parasols are great for covering large outdoor areas where there are no buildings or external walls for awnings to be fitted.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Umbrellas and Parasols Withstand Strong Winds?

Due to the designs of umbrellas and parasols, it’s important to ensure they’re secured correctly, as strong winds can sometimes catch them and lift them from the place, leading to potential damage.

What Weight Base Do I Need?

A general rule of thumb for ensuring the base of your umbrella or parasol is secure and weighed down is to multiply the width of your umbrella/parasol by 10. For example, a 6’ umbrella would require at least a 60lb base.

Are Parasols Waterproof?

Parasols are generally used for sunshade rather than for protection from the rain. For this reason, parasols may not be entirely waterproof and shouldn’t be used over an umbrella for protection from rain.
