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.
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).
We recommend that when you purchase movable baseplates for your umbrella that you consider purchasing a Brolly Trolley™. This makes it safe and easy to move your umbrella and base around without any heavy lifting.
