A focus on protection allows commercial sites to provide great weather protection with ease of mind. Here are a few criteria for selecting your umbrella structure with your patron’s protection in mind.
1. Wind-Rated: selecting a dependable wind-rated umbrella gives ease of mind for the product owner. Every day people pass by restaurants that leave their umbrellas closed due to a lack of confidence in the weather. Skyspan’s 75mph wind ratings allows for peace of mind for nearly all weather conditions. Rather than worry about damaged to your umbrellas, patrons, and property; choose an umbrella that can be left open with confidence.
2. Waterproof: the whole original concept behind the umbrella is to provide protection against the rain, and yet today the majority of umbrellas in commercial use are merely water resistant. Skyspan umbrella structures are 100% waterproof and allows your patrons to decide whether they would prefer to spend their time inside or outdoors.
3. UV-Rated: skin cancer is the fastest growing cancer in the United States, and with this is a growing concern over skin protection amongst Americans. By choosing umbrellas are 100% UV rated you can provide excellent protection from exposure to UVA and UVB rays.
4. Noncorrosive: many of commercial umbrellas out on the market are made of wood and steel. While these may be visibly appealing they tend to do poorly after long exposure to the elements, particularly close to salt water. Choose an umbrella that is made from aluminum and guarantees a non-rusting warranty. This will help ensure that three years later you’re not forced to purchase another umbrella.
5. Invest: While umbrella structures tend to cost more than your run-of-the-mill umbrellas, they need to be seen as an investment. Rather than having to replace your umbrella each season, choose a product that guarantees wind-ratings, waterproofing, UV ratings, and durability. By doing so you’ll not only protect your patrons, but also your time and money.
By meeting these criteria and by investing in a Skyspan Umbrella Structure, you can be sure that you will be able to provide superior weather protection, and have ease of mind with a superior product.
