While Shademaker umbrellas are made to withstand some wind – it is recommended that the umbrellas always be closed during windy conditions. If it is too windy to enjoy your umbrella, then the umbrella should be closed. Please remove the umbrella during extreme weather conditions to avoid damage that could be caused by flying debris.
Note: Wind damage (or any damage caused by acts of nature) is never covered under warranty.
Sufficient base weight must be used to secure umbrellas at all times. Please refer to our datasheet for minimum requirements for free standing base weight. Mounting your umbrella onto a fixed anchorage (e.g. In-Ground) is always the preferred method of securing your umbrella and is recommended above all other methods.
