Umbrella careBack to previous page
The following tips should maximise the life of your umbrella.
Our umbrellas are built to protect from winds as well as rain. However, they will not protect from strong gusts. Avoid using your umbrella in heavy winds, particularly by sea fronts and rivers.
Avoid leaning on your umbrella and using it as a walking stick.
Always leave your umbrella open to dry to allow the fabric and materials to breathe. This will also prevent any potential rusting of metal parts.
Leave your umbrella to dry away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.
Keep away from raditors and hot places.
Take time to neatly fold & unfold to keep your umbrella looking new.
Clean only with plain water, as cleaning subtances could remove proofing coatings.
If you own one of our Telescopic Umbrellas, refrain from swinging it by the handle. Extending the shaft by throwing it open like a lightsaber or emulating a cricket bat or golf club can potentially separate the sections of the shaft.
