Fixing an umbrella in the sand is simple, and there are two options:

  • 1. Dig a deep hole, insert the umbrella pole, and then cover it with sand.
  • 2. For seasonal installations, dig a deep hole, insert the white Ø85 mm polyethylene column with coupling/reducer and a storage plate, then secure the umbrella.

What are the main risks for an umbrella at the beach?

    • The marine environment, particularly aggressive due to saltwater, can damage metal parts and accessories over time. Therefore, it’s important to choose appropriate materials, prefer anodized finishes or marine-grade coatings, and perform regular cleaning and maintenance.
    • Wind is definitely a significant risk factor. Choosing the right model, size, and anchoring method is crucial to prevent structural damage and overturning.

To provide maximum comfort to vacationers and better face this possibility, Crema Outdoor has designed wind-resistant umbrellas that are durable and safe.

Securing an Umbrella in the Garden, Where to Start?

To bury an umbrella in the garden, it’s important to consider several factors, including:

  • Type of terrain: Is it a grassy area, gravel surface, or cemented area? In the case of cement, it’s important to know the composition and ensure it has a thickness of at least 20 cm.
  • Wind exposure: Determine whether to choose an umbrella with a wind vent and reinforced structure in terms of profiles or opt for a lighter umbrella.
  • Size of the area to be covered: Depending on the available space and intended use, it’s advisable to consult the available dimensions for each model to determine whether a larger or more compact and versatile umbrella is the best solution.
