Choosing the best product from several kinds of that particular brand is not easy. It is even more challenging if the product is a parasol umbrella, and you will be choosing one umbrella from a variety of its kind. In such a case, the probability of choosing the wrong umbrella is almost certain. By “wrong umbrella,” we mean low-quality—umbrellas built with low-quality materials and do not serve their purpose.
There are various branded parasols in the market, and most of them were simply constructed to be attractive. So, the mantra “attractive and fashionable products sell fast” is true. Many attractive umbrellas are not durable because of their low-quality features.
Meanwhile, we focus on building parasols that are not only attractive but also durable. Hence, they can be used to serve your purpose for a long period. We will be providing you with the best-branded umbrellas, but before we do that, we will be showing you the factors to consider before getting parasols for your business.

Factor To Consider To Choose The Best Parasol Ideal For Your Outdoor Space
Finding the best parasol, as said earlier, is a challenging task. Meanwhile, you do not have to be scared or worried because we will help you find the best parasol suitable for your outdoor space. We will provide you with a few factors to consider whenever you are shopping for parasols.
- UV-blocking or UV protection
One of the best parasols is those that perfectly fit your outdoor space. So, one of the most important factors to consider when buying parasols is size. The parasol you will buy for a patio table with two seats is different from the parasol required for a four-seaters patio table.
Generally, the parasols designed for gardens often have a canopy size of 2m, 2.4m, 2.7m, 3m, or 4m in diameter. So it is essential that you do the right thing by measuring the size because most circular parasols require a larger space.
The primary function of a parasol umbrella is to protect you on sunny days by providing you with shade. When it comes to maximum protection from sun rays, it is advisable to invest in umbrellas with a tilt adjustment. A tilt adjustment is a feature that will help you position the canopy to any angle, hence, offering maximum sun protection.
If the parasol you seek is a cantilever parasol, it is always advisable to get one that comes with a 360° rotating feature. This will protect you from the stress of dragging the entire parasol to shade you, irrespective of the sun ray’s angle. You should also consider getting a parasol with a winding crank mechanism to help you adjust the umbrella’s height.
UV-blocking or UV protection
You don’t always have to wear sunscreen under a parasol umbrella. There are a few parasols designed with UV-blocking fabric to protect you from much more ultraviolet rays from the sun. We use different fabrics to design our canopies to have different UV-blocking ratings. Parasol with the highest ultraviolet protection has a rating of UV50+. It is advisable not to go for parasols with ultraviolet protection with a rating lower than UV30+. At the same time, some parasols are not designed with any protection; hence, you should always check the product’s specifications before buying it.
Durability is one factor every product should have; else, they won’t last long. We offer parasols built with a rust-resistant property to make them last longer than an ‘ordinary parasol.’
