Skyspan Umbrellas are a unique shade structure built with commercial applications in mind. They are designed to maximise the use of your outdoor areas and create a more comfortable and inviting space. Several key points make Skyspan umbrellas a great choice for businesses: Superior Quality: The materials used in Skyspan umbrellas are designed to withstand heavy use, meaning they will last for many years. Waterproof Umbrellas: All Skyspan umbrellas are made from waterproof materials, meaning they can withstand heavy rain and sun exposure. High Engineer Wind Rating (EWR): Skyspan umbrellas have a high engineer wind rating, meaning they can withstand gusts of up to 148kph. Tensioning Systems: Skyspan umbrellas are tensioned with a network of steel cables that run around the canopy's outer seams and arms. This ensures the umbrella remains stationary and does not move, even in high winds. Easy to Operate: Skyspan umbrellas are easy to deploy and retract, making them a hassle-free addition to your outdoor space. Let's take a look at these features in more detail: Superior Quality Commercial Umbrellas Skyspan umbrellas are high-quality, commercial-grade umbrellas. They are made with marine grade 316 stainless steel cables and componentry and have concealed canopy perimeter cables that are secured with anti-creep fixings. This makes them durable and long-lasting, perfect for any business or commercial setting. The frame and struts of the umbrella are made from corrosion-resistant structural aluminium, which is both strong and lightweight. Additionally, the stainless steel cables help keep the umbrella structure in place. Waterproof Umbrellas Skypan Umbrellas use architectural grade PVC for their umbrellas' canopy, offering a stylish and low maintenance finish and a fully waterproof solution for your outdoor space. An umbrella with a waterproof fabric prevents the canopy from rotting or becoming saturated and transferring water. Moreover, what's the point of having an umbrella if it isn't waterproof? Not only will you have to constantly monitor the weather forecast, but you'll also have to take it down and put it away every time it rains. With a waterproof umbrella from Skyspan, you can relax and enjoy your outdoor space without worry. You also have total peace of mind knowing that in addition to being waterproof, the canopy fabric in Skypan Umbrellas offers high levels of heat reflection and UV resistance (UV Stabilised to UFP 50+ blocking UVA and UVB). High Engineer Wind Rating (EWR) Skyspan's Sunset and Typhoon umbrellas have an Umbrella wind rating of 118-148kph. To put that into perspective, a category one hurricane experiences winds up to 150kph. So, you can rest assured these Skyspan are not only built to last but built to withstand devastating winds. An engineer wind rating is important for ensuring your umbrella's security. This rating lets you know how well your umbrella will hold up in gusts of wind, so you can be sure it won't blow away and cause any accidents. Having a high engineer wind rating on your umbrella guarantees peace of mind during a storm. If you want an umbrella that can withstand 100kph+ winds, it must be made from heavy-duty materials. It also needs to be appropriately anchored and reinforced. This means that the umbrella will be sturdy and well-built, but it also means that it will be heavier than a standard umbrella. This is precisely what you can expect from Skyspan umbrellas. Internal Tensioning Systems When purchasing a commercial umbrella, it is important to consider the effects of sun, wind, and rain. Over time, these elements can take a toll on the integrity of the umbrella, causing it to break down or become damaged. To prevent this from happening, you need an umbrella made from corrosion-resistant, all-weather materials. Additionally, the umbrella must be correctly tensioned to withstand high winds and heavy precipitation. Skyspan considers these factors, ensuring that your umbrella will last for many years to come. They recognise the significance of a high-quality umbrella. That's why they tension their commercial umbrellas with a network of steel cables that run around the canopy's outer seams and arms. This ensures the umbrella remains stationary and does not move. The cables help support your umbrella's structural integrity, allowing it to retain its shape and withstand the elements. Furthermore, Skyspan umbrellas are composed of long-lasting materials that can sustain heavy use. So, whether you're searching for shade from the sun or rain protection, you can be confident that a Skyspan umbrella will last. Easy to Operate Freestanding umbrellas are a great way to provide coverage for a large area. But a good retraction system is crucial for safety and ease of use. If you are using a large umbrella, make sure it is fitted with appropriate heavy equipment and that you have more than one person to operate it. This will make it easier to use in changing weather conditions and save time for your staff. Skyspan umbrellas take all these elements into account. The company's umbrellas are designed for easy and safe operation. Conclusion Skyspan umbrellas are an excellent investment for any business. They are built to last, are easy to operate and provide excellent sun and rain protection. With a Skyspan umbrella, you can enjoy your outdoor space without worry.
