High-quality parasols: How to recognise quality
A parasol should not be missing on any balcony or terrace. That much is clear. But what should you pay attention to when buying your sun protection for outdoors? We explain how to find the perfect umbrella.
Of course, the sun cover should primarily be functional and do its job in an exemplary manner. But that doesn't mean that your parasol can’t look good too. In terms of colour, it should match your garden furniture; the colour can also be used, for example, in the decorative cushions or seat covers for your rattan furniture. It should be timeless and classic to underline your very own furnishing style.
The right diameter for your balcony or terrace requires some consideration. On the one hand, your parasol should provide plenty of shade and offer a large number of people a sun canopy; on the other hand, of course, it still has to fit in the available space.
- Ease of use:
Laborious opening and closing really isn't necessary. Make sure to choose a model that can be quickly opened with a crank and retracted just as quickly. The mechanism for height adjustment should also be a consideration. It also makes sense if the sun protection can be swivelled so you can track the course of the sun and always stay in the shade.
- UV protection:
The purpose of a parasol is that it allows you to keep a cool head and avoid dangerous UV radiation. A high sun protection factor is therefore an important quality criterion, because the more densely woven the screen fabric is, the less sun rays can penetrate. It's worth investing in high-quality materials here that don’t fade so quickly.
In addition to your parasol, you need a rain cover that protects the fabric from the effects of weather and dirt. An umbrella stand, which ensures stability, is always a good investment.
Only parasols that achieve good values in all of these criteria should be placed on your balcony or in your terrace or garden.
Cantilever parasol for balcony and terrace
You can find cantilever parasols in our online shop, which score points with their excellent price-performance ratio and reliably protect the balcony and terrace from sun rays. The moveable screen convinces with its stable stand and modern design.
Thanks to its ease of use, it’s ready for use in the shortest possible time and can be tilted so that it effectively keeps the sun away. It can also be adjusted in height using a practical lever mechanism that can be operated with the foot.
In the daily test, the parasol proves to be robust and resistant and can stay outdoors all year round. To make it even heavier, you can place granite slabs on the base of the parasol. That ensures the parasol, which is available with a diameter of 2.5 or 3 metres, cannot fall over even in strong winds when it is folded up.
The parasol with swivel mechanism is the perfect partner for your outdoor and rattan furniture from viplounge.ch.
