Stabiliser Upgrade Kit
The Riviera cantilever umbrella has a uniquely designed fixed arm stabiliser upgrade kit available. These stabiliser arms will greatly increase the umbrellas stability on windy days. The stabiliser kit simply screws into a fitting already installed in the groove of the Riviera mast. Each stabiliser arm then attaches to the end of the umbrella arms to the left and right. The stabiliser upgrade kit is specifically designed for commercial environment where the umbrella needs to be up all day without constant supervision. The stabiliser kit is will also be idea for exposed locations and coastal environments.
Although the cantilever umbrella is designed and manufactured using marine grade materials that are durable and highly fade resistant; we do recommend using a cover bag to protect you umbrella while not in use. A cover bag will keep unwanted dirt and bird droppings off your umbrella while keeping it dry. This will prolong the life of your umbrella and keep it looking its best for many years.
Outdoor LED Light
This rechargeable LED fluorescent lights comes with matching clips to fix the light to the Riviera umbrella at any location on the arms of the umbrella. The light lasts approximately 6hr when used at full light power before you will need to plug in and recharge the batteries again. Great for night time dining or creating an outdoor ambience in low light.
Base Plate Installation Kit
A base plate kit is used to install your Riviera umbrella onto a wooden deck or an existing concrete pad. To install the base plate onto a wooden deck you will need to install a suitable nog/reinforcement under the decking and fix it to your joists. We provide you with bolts to then fix the base plate to the nog/reinforcement under the decking. Alternatively the base plate can easily be fixed to any concrete pad that is around 100mm thick using the supplied concrete bolts.
An in-ground fitting is supplied for situations where a Riviera umbrella needs to be installed into a lawn, garden or any soft surface. This includes paved area with compressed sand/aggregate under the pavers. A hole approximately 40cm wide by 70cm deep needs to be dug for the concrete footing. The in-ground fitting is then set into the concrete flush at ground level. Once the concrete sets then the umbrella can be stood up and attached to the in ground fittings using the supplied bolts.
Free Standing Base
The galvanised free standing base is often used in situations when its not possible to install the umbrellas with a base plate or in-ground fitting. It weights approximately 280kg when loaded with 8 x 50x50cm concrete pavers. This base is suitable for even the largest size Riviera umbrellas in windy locations. Dimensions: 110cm x 110cm
Wind Tunnel Testing
To show the strength and stability of this wind resistant cantilever umbrella we put it to the test. We installed the Riviera cantilever umbrella in the largest wind tunnel in NZ based at the University of Auckland. The umbrella withstood the maximum possible wind speed of the tunnel at that size which was 40kph. Some businesses make exaggerated claims about what wind speed their umbrella is “engineered” for. You however can see the quality of the Riviera cantilever umbrella for yourself by viewing our video.
