Material and processing of umbrellas

Thanks to new materials and processing techniques, the UV resistance of umbrellas has been significantly increased in recent years. At the same time, the screen covers are now no longer so handsome, which considerably extends the durability of a sunshade. Therefore, when buying a sunshade, you should pay attention to how easy it is to use, how light-sensitive the fabric is and how well it prevents UV radiation. There are also sun screens with a polyacrylic covering. This provides very good protection against UV radiation, hardly blemishes and is water and dirt repellent. A couple more euros for a sunshade can really be worth it, as you'll probably have fun for a bit longer. Pay attention to a robust, resistant material that provides stability even in bad weather.

There are also many differences in umbrella stands. So you can choose a screen stand that is visually appealing but also solid. The offer ranges from the plastic stand, which is filled with water via massive granite umbrella stands, which are intended for screens, which should always stand in the same place.

Sunshades are opened differently depending on the type. Particularly heavy sunshades are opened or closed with a crank mechanism, since this saves some energy. This type of opening is particularly safe: If the crank is released during opening or closing, the screen remains in its position.

Belt tensioning mechanisms are also energy-saving. When opening, a rope is weighed, which leads over a pulley block and so the umbrella can be opened more easily. The cable is then fastened to the screen mast on a cable winder for fixing purposes.
An automatic telescope can then be very pleasant, if the screen has to be stowed quickly also space saving.

Rectangular sunshade

At the moment rectangular sunshades are particularly popular because they protect the often rectangular table from the sun very well and are so large that no one is dazzled by the sun.
