Welcome to High Quality Store Parasol Stands & Bases Collection
On the beach, we have often observed the scenario of the flying umbrella, if it has not happened to us before. A slightly stronger breeze sweeps across the beach and zap, the screen is gone, terrorizing the beach guests. Of course, such scenarios do not take place at home in the garden or on the terrace, but even in Germany, one or the other summer storm can cause quite a stir. So if you do not want to fly away with your glider, you should invest in a sturdy umbrella stand.
Where are parasol stands used?
In the café, restaurant or at home in the garden, on the terrace or the balcony - parasol stands are universally usable. However, depending on the area of use, there are different models that are more or less suitable for a specific location. Roller umbrella stands with wheels, for example, are particularly popular for gardens or terraces where the sunshade is used in different places. But also plate stands are very suitable for large umbrellas in the garden or on the terrace. For balcony owners there are instead specially made parasol beams that can be mounted on the wall to save space.
What are umbrellas made of?
Chic or rather practical? In today's weather instability umbrellas and parasol stand should meet both criteria best. Since umbrellas are used for different areas, manufacturers provide as needed
Parasol stands made of different materials, so you can enjoy this summer as well as your neighbor without unnecessary problems.
Umbrella stands made of high quality materials mostly consist of granite, metal and plastic. At the top of the list of buyers are mainly parasol stands made of granite. Whether round, rectangular or square, as a natural stone granite is not only something for the eye, but convinces in particular by its high weight. Parasol stands made of granite are not as affordable as for example parasol stand made of plastic, but are much more durable. The advantage of plastic umbrella stands, however, is that they are lightweight and therefore easy to transport from A to B. However, so that the umbrella does not fly away completely with the umbrella stand, the umbrella stand can be filled with sand or water as desired.
But if you want to play it safe, you can use concrete umbrellas. Concrete is not only incredibly heavy, it also keeps things neat. In addition, it is weather-resistant and therefore easy to maintain. Meanwhile, there are also covers for parasol stand made of wood and plastic, which make the concrete stand optically a little more attractive. For trend-conscious parasol owners, there are parasol stands made of metal, which are either partly made of metal or are available as a full metal stand.
What should be considered when buying?
In order to protect umbrellas not only from the sun or the prying eyes of the neighbors, parasol stands should be stable above all else. How stable a parasol stand is depends not only on the parasol stand itself, but also on the size of the respective shade. In order to keep your sunshade in case of minor storms, a minimum weight of 1 kg should be included for each 10 cm diameter of the canopy. So if you have a parasol of 20cm diameter, your parasol stand should not weigh less than 20kg. However, if your sunshade is open in the garden or on the terrace and is thus exposed to the forces of nature, the minimum weight should be one-third to one-half higher in order to reduce or even prevent damage. Although many gastro screens can withstand a wind speed of 90 km / h, most terraces, garden and balcony screens are not suitable for wind forces over 30 km / h. Therefore, it is advisable to close the sunshade completely in strong winds. So if you want to enjoy your parasol next year, then you should rather move his garden party inside.
