Wind Rated Umbrellas

Wind Rated Umbrellas

Our wind rated umbrellas are our highest strength of umbrella

They have been designed for specific wind speeds, and wind tunnel tested to prove that they can actually withstand those wind speeds when installed with one of our in-ground bases. No other umbrella in Australia has actually been wind tunnel tested!

Australian Made - In Melbourne!

We're proud to manufacture our commercial umbrellas right here, where we live, Melbourne, Australia.

Our Frames

Our three secrets to making the ultimate umbrella are simple - it just takes time, engineering, and cost.

  • Add more material - More material in the pole and thicker ribs mean a stronger frame.
  • Use more ribs - More ribs means more support of the canvas roof.
  • Test & re-design - We don't settle for "good enough", we constantly test and re-engineer our umbrellas.
People Hanging From Umbrella

All of our wind rated umbrellas are of equivalent quality, the only thing that changes between them is the size of the frame components that gives them increasingly more levels of strength. 

Our wind rated umbrella range is second to none, both in terms of strength, but also build quality. Proudly made in Melbourne, with fully locally sourced components, no frame leaves our factory without our 100% tick of approval and sign off from our Company Director. 


We work exclusively with Innova and Recasens as our Acrylic fabric suppliers. We know their products, and trust their performance.

  • 3 year no significant fade guarantee
  • 3 year no significant strength loss guarantee
  • Abrasion & tear resistant
  • UPF50+ rating
  • Anti-pilling & Anti-mildew

With hundreds of colours to choose from, see Innova "Lisos" colours, and Recasens "Recacril" colour options.

Umbrella Colours


Our wind rated umbrella range is designed to withstand winds between 120km/h to 160km/h and carry an unmatched 10 year guarantee on the frame and 3 year guarantee on the fabric cover - because we back what we build!

  • 10 year guarantee on frame
  • 3 year guarantee on material
  • Australian made, in Melbourne!

We pride ourselves in exceptional customer support and a professional experience. Accordingly we respond swiftly to any warranty claims - albeit the few we've ever had.


We have two different base options for our wind rated umbrellas. As strong as an umbrella can be, it's only going to be as secure as it's base.

Socket Base

In Ground Socket

The ultimate way to secure your umbrella in winds. 

Our In Ground Sockets are devices which secure cafe barriers, cafe umbrellas and many other products to the ground.

No matter how strong or well designed an umbrella is, without being properly secured it is still a safety hazard.

These are concreted into the ground, and allow the umbrella to be locked to it too, ensuring it will never leave the base.
Concrete Base

Concrete Base

Our concrete insert base is ideal for when you need maximum stability but don't have the luxury of installing an In Ground Socket. 

Made from galvanized mild steel, measuring 900mm square and holding four concrete blocks these bases weigh around 80kg. A larger version holding eight concrete blocks and weighing around 140kg is also available.

NOTE: These are custom made bases, made to order based on customers requirements.
Umbrella Base

Traditional Base

Our traditional umbrella bases, to suit our range of cafe umbrellas and outdoor market umbrellas, are available in two sizes.

2m Umbrella Base - 500mm x 500mm
3m Umbrella Base - 600mm x 600mm

Secure them to the ground with dynabolts, or sit weight bags on top of them.
Weight Bags

Weight Bags

Umbrella weight bags are available in two sizes. 

Unlike most umbrella weight bags which are filled with sand our weight bags are filled with galvanised steel punchings so there is no mess from leaking weight bags. 

Available in 10kg or 15kg sizes.
