Valances can have a straight edge or a scalloped edge.
Another feature is to contrast the colour of the Valance binding. If your canopy and valance are red for example, a black binding or edging can really give a great effect. Call us to discuss colour combinations.

Café & Courtyard umbrellas arrive fully assembled ready for use. In terms of selecting the way to install your umbrella so that it is stable there are multiple options. These include;
- Movable Umbrella Base: Suitable if you need to move your umbrella around or take it in and out each day. It is important that the umbrella be matched to a suitably heavy and stable base. The best base option is the Sunranger Umbrella Bases. These are a bit more expensive than a normal umbrella base but have many advantages including, industrial rust prevention treatment, the ability to be weighted-up to remain stable in breezy conditions.
We recommend that when you purchase movable baseplates for your umbrella that you consider purchasing a Brolly Trolley™. This make it safe and easy to move your umbrella and base around without any heavy lifting.
- Bolt down Baseplate: Ideal where the umbrella is being installed on a more permanent setting or where it is particularly breezy. You will need a suitably strong concrete slab to bolt to.
- Inground Base: Usually with this style of installation we send the inground socket out ahead of time allowing you/your handyperson to concrete it in and let the concrete set. When the umbrella arrives, the base is secure and you can stand the umbrella.
- Removable Inground Base: Many Local Councils require the use of an inground sleeve whereby the umbrella is secured by placing it into a pre-installed socket. In this instance, the umbrella slips onto the sleeve and is secured by a flap or pin. When removed, the cap flips closed and the area is safe leaving no trip hazard.

- Sunranger Umbrella Bases
- Matching Acrylic Protection Cover (call us) or a Easireach Centrepost Cover in either Platinum or Natural)

Can I print my logo on this umbrella?

Are these umbrellas waterproof?
These umbrellas canopies are made with a marine grade acrylic canvas. This is a very hard wearing outdoor fabric designed specifically for applications such as this. The fabric is highly water resistant.
Can I use this umbrella in breezy conditions?
Yes. These umbrellas are designed to handle breezy conditions. They should however be collapsed in strong winds. When the canopies get wet, this makes them heavier than normal which can put extra stress on the frames. If the umbrellas are wet and it is windy, there is a higher risk of wind damage.
The other important thing is that for an umbrella to be stable in breezy conditions it must be adequately weighted down. We recommend that these umbrella be bolted down or installed with an inground fitting. Mobile baseplates are really only suitable for these umbrellas when they are installed in low wind environments.
