Understanding Wind Resilience

Our collection at Outdoor Living includes top-of-the-line Frankford Umbrellas, known for their durability and wind resistance. These umbrellas are designed to withstand many elements of nature, but even the sturdiest umbrella needs a bit of care when the winds pick up.

When the weather forecast calls for strong winds, the safest choice is to lower and secure your umbrella.

Step-by-Step Guide to Securing Your Umbrella

  1. Monitor Weather Reports: Always keep an eye on local weather forecasts. Knowing when a windy day is expected helps you prepare in advance.
  2. Lower the Umbrella: At the first sign of strong winds, lower your umbrella to prevent it from catching wind and potentially becoming damaged or causing damage.
  3. Use a Protective Cover: If you anticipate frequent windy conditions, invest in a high-quality protective cover. Covers help shield your umbrella from the elements when not in use.
  4. Secure with Straps: For umbrellas that remain outdoors, make sure they are securely strapped down. Even when lowered, a gust of wind can lift an unsecured umbrella.
  5. Consider Storage: If severe weather is on the horizon, the best protection is to remove the umbrella from its base and store it indoors until the weather improves.
