A new fibreglass umbrella has been introduced as a strong contender in the commercial market umbrella scene. The new umbrella from Shade7 has been specifically designed to meet the various needs of commercial businesses and environments. Strong, light and mobile with branding opportunities are just some of the great qualities of this excellent umbrella.
The new fibreglass market umbrella is in a league of its own when it comes to commercial market umbrellas. It has been designed specifically to endure frequent commercial use and windy environments. As a fishing rod would bend under pressure, the fibreglass arms of this umbrella will also bend and flex under pressure and wind. The arms are extremely difficult to break and even in this unlikely event, the individual arms can be replaced easily. The centre pole is made from a strong 2.2mm thick aluminium post. As the umbrella is designed to live outside, every piece has been specifically chosen to ensure that no rust will form. Shade7 have created a product video which demonstrates just how resilient this new umbrella is.
Weighing in at around 8-10kg (depending on the style) the umbrella is much lighter than a wooden or full aluminium umbrella, but without compromising any strength. A single person can easily move, put up or take down the umbrella. If the umbrella needs to be transported then the aluminium centre post splits in the middle for easy transport and storage. There are six base options available for different settings, including portable bases and in-ground fittings.
Brand exposure is another advantage with the ability to print images and text onto the canopy panels. Shade7 offer a printing and branding service to ensure that customers are utilising their branding opportunities. There are three canopy fabric options, but are usually ordered with European made 100% solution dyed acrylic canvas, which is a premium marine-grade fabric that comes with a 5 year warranty. It also has the highest possible UV protection rating of UPF 80 which gives excellent sun protection. The canopies are available in Shade7’s two top selling colours Charcoal Tweed and Ecru, however there is also a large collection of other colours available to match a brand or décor.
Shade7’s Fibreglass umbrellas are already standing strong in New Zealand and in the Pacific Islands. There are two fibreglass market umbrella styles available, a 1.9m square and a 2.7m octagonal. Due to the nature of the umbrella, it is only available commercially based on volume requirements.
