What makes this umbrella so special?
The Hurricane premium parasol by Bambrella has been engineered in the United Kingdom to be one of the most stylish, well-made market umbrellas available anywhere in the world. Its construction is strong to withstand windy conditions. It is made with a high-quality canvas which is showerproof and has a UPF of 50+.
Is it suitable for commercial use as well as home use?
Yes. The Hurricane umbrella has been tested by an engineer to withstand strong winds. It is ideal for a commercial situation provided it is carefully managed. It is not an umbrella that is designed to be left up permanently and when it gets windy it is important to collapse the umbrella and secure it.
The Hurricane is also a perfect umbrella for the discerning homeowner who is looking for a high-quality parasol umbrella to enhance their outdoor area.
How big is it?
The Hurricane is available in multiple sizes and shapes. The smallest size is 2.1m square and the largest size is 4.0m Octagonal. There are many sizes in-between.
What size base do I need with the umbrella?
The base of any umbrella determines how stable it is in breezy conditions. The most stable way to secure this umbrella is with an inground or bolt-down base. If this is not possible there are a range of base-plates that are suitable for this umbrella depending on how it is going to be used. Make sure you select a base that accepts the right size pole diameter (48mm or 58mm) and that is heavy enough. If you are unsure, please don’t hesitate to contact Shade Australia to discuss your specific situation.
Is the fabric waterproof?
The fabric is showerproof. If it gets saturated it will drip.
Is the fabric sunproof?
Yes, the fabric has a UPF of 50+. It also features a 2 year fade resistant warranty.
Can you deliver it to me?
Of course. Just select your postcode in the checkout and we will calculate the shipping price. If the price seems high, then you are welcome to call us and we can investigate if it’s possible to find a cheaper freight company.
We do need an ATL (authority to leave) if we are delivering to a home. This can be a front porch or carport. If you can’t give an ATL you will need to contact us so we can make alternate arrangements.
What is the warranty?
The Hurricane comes with a 2 year frame and fabric warranty. The warranty is subject to our standard warranty conditions. Fabric warranty is pro-rata. Please note that all umbrellas sold by Shade Australia are not warranted for wind damage.
Can I fix it if it breaks?
Yes, all the parts are interchangeable so if in the rare instance an arm breaks, we can send you a new one and you can easily replace it. Alternatively, we can send you a replacement part with instructions and you can replace it yourself.
Can I replace the fabric canopy?
Yes, if you wish to change the fabric canopy on your umbrella it is a relatively straight forward job.
Will my umbrella rust?
No. the central structure of the umbrella is made from anodised aluminium. All bolts and nuts are stainless steel.
What maintenance do I need to do?
Like any product with moving parts, we recommend regular checks to ensure all nuts and bolts are in place and tight. When not in use we recommend furling the fabric and securing with the strap. An umbrella protection cover will greatly extend the life of the fabric on your umbrella.
Can I print my logo on this umbrella and what will it cost?
Yes, you can print your logo onto this umbrella. In order to give you a quotation, we need to see your artwork first so that we can determine the size and number of colours in the logo. Most of the printing we do in these umbrellas is screen-printing or heat-transfer. We’ve found that that other types of printing such as digital print fade to fast in the hot Australian sun.
