A patio umbrella shelters guests from the heat of the sun, and when the right fabric canopy has been selected, they can also provide great protection from harmful UV rays

How long is it safe to sit outside, unprotected? According to the Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care, five to ten minutes is about all that is safe -

An outdoor umbrella can protect you from the harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays from the sun. Shade is more effective than sunscreen. Pets can also find shelter in the shade.

Our 280 G Polyester fabric is made with UV protection in mind.

Umbrellas protect your furniture from the elements 

The same UV rays that are harmful to you, can also damage your furniture. Furniture can fade and warp over time.
