What is a Commercial Patio Umbrella?
A commercial patio umbrella is a patio umbrella designed for use in a restaurant, bar, café or hotel.
What Are The Differences Between Home Patio Umbrellas and Commercial Patio Umbrellas?
Patio umbrellas used in a commercial setting (restaurant, bar, cafe or hotel) get much more rigorous use than one in a residential/home setting - it is open and closed many more times, it is moved around a lot, and it is not cared for as well by staff as a home user would care for it. As a result, if you are a commercial business seeking patio umbrellas, it is important to choose a patio umbrella that has been designed specifically for commercial use, or you will likely experience frequent breakage. Here are a few quick tips for what to look for in a commercial patio umbrellas:
- Simple operation. Tilt and/or crank open are not recommended for commercial patio umbrellas since they are the most susceptible areas for breakage. Choose manual open styles and solid, non-tilting poles.
- Durable frames. Stronger ribs are recommended for commercial patio umbrellas to withstand wind, frequent use and rough handling by staff.
- Fade-resistant fabric. A fabric that holds its colour is important for commercial patio umbrellas that will be used every day in the spring/summer.
- Heavy bases: Bases that are 25-35kg (depending on the size of the umbrella) are important for commercial patio umbrellas. A base that is too light could mean an umbrella could blow over on a customer.
