Being outdoor products, parasols are exposed to the elements of nature. Parasols were primarily developed to protect us from harmful effects of Ultra Violet radiation, but they also have a secondary function as a shelter from rain or other adverse weather conditions.

The ability for parasols to themselves withstand the effects of UV radiation is entirely dependent on the quality and type of fabric used and also the finishes of various materials used in the structure. As in most things there is always a quality and price trade off.

The ability of parasols to withstand various wind strengths however is entirely dependent on the materials used, the wall thickness of the structures and the design integrity of the products. Based on the market demand for parasols that can withstand strong winds and extreme conditions, Woodline has developed a marine range of products. Although these products can withstand very high wind conditions, it is always advisable to apply the following basic rules unless otherwise specified.
