This umbrella baseplate is our budget priced model suitable for a wide range of commercial and domestic umbrella installations.  The baseplate has adjustable sleeves at the top of the spigot allowing it to accommodate a range of umbrella pole sizes. Be aware that these baseplates may not be heavy or stable enough to support a market umbrella in breezy conditions.

 PLEASE NOTE: These base-plates are steel with a powder-coat finish. They have no other treatment for rust prevention. Steel does rust, particularly if the powder coat is scratched or they are used near the ocean. We recommend that to prolong the life of this base you treat it with a rust prevention paint. Because they are powder coated steel we can not warrant these base-plates against rust. If you need a rust-resistant base we recommend a Granite Base or a Sunranger Excaliber Base.

Size & Weight

Recently we’ve upgraded this baseplate with a 16mm central bolt to join the spigot to the base. This replaces the 12mm central bolt which was previously used (and is still used on most other baseplates of this kind).

Classic Steel baseplates;

  • Measure 56cm x 56cm square

Recommended Accessories

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.

Option up your Classic Steel baseplate with a range of accessories including:

  • Sunranger Café Series Umbrellas
  • Rust prevention spray such as Deodorized Fish Oil
  • Vinyl Weight bags

If you are using this umbrella baseplate to secure umbrellas in breezy conditions we strongly recommend that you add additional weight to it with the use of use with vinyl weight bags.  Vinyl weight bags will add additional weight and increase this baseplates’ stability.


Brolly Trolley™

Moving a café or market umbrella around is part of the appeal of this style of umbrella but…umbrellas are heavy and umbrella baseplates are even heavier!  No-one wants to unnecessarily lift these heavy items around and potentially injure themselves.  That’s where the Brolly Trolley comes in.  This Aussie made trolley simply slips under the baseplate of the umbrella and then by tilting the umbrella back toward you, you can simply and safely wheel the umbrella and base to the location you need it.  No heavy lifting, just a safe and easy way to relocate your umbrella.

A well made flat steel umbrella baseplate at a good price.

Product Information

How heavy are these baseplates?

The Classic Steel Baseplate is approximately 16kg’s. We recommend adding additional weight with vinyl weight bags when using it in breezy conditions.


Will they fit my market umbrella?

Classic steel baseplates ship with spigots that accept umbrella poles with diameters of 38mm-48mm.


Are they suitable for home use?



Are they suitable for commercial use?

We would recommend using a heavier baseplate for commercial use such as the Sunranger baseplate.


Where can I buy them from?

Sunranger umbrella baseplates are available exclusively from Shade Australia.


Do I need to assemble them?

Yes, they ship flat packed. Once you receive your new Sunranger it should take you no more than 5 minutes to assemble it.


Is this umbrella baseplate treated for rust protection.

This baseplate is powdercoated steel. Powdercoating does offer some level of protection against rust but it is important that the protection layer remain intact. Scratches can allow moisture to contact the steel whereupon rusting may occur.


What is the warranty of these Baseplates?

12 Months.

12 Months

Warranty covers the baseplate for workmanship and use under normal conditions.  The warranty does not cover damage caused by wind, or misuse. If the baseplate is used in a location near the ocean it should be treated regularly (at least once every 3 months with a rust inhibitor such as deodorized fish oil. Unless this is done, warranty claims may not be valid). The warranty of this baseplate does not cover rust. If your umbrella baseplate becomes scratched it can expose the underlying metal and enable rust. Scratches should be immediately resprayed and treated with rust inhibitor. Should a warranty claim be made it is the responsibility of the customer to get the umbrella back to us or a repair depot which we designate.  The condition of the umbrella will be assessed and if it is a legitimate warranty claim, we will carry out the repairs at our cost and return the umbrella to you at our cost.
