Umbrella careBack to previous page
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 in large open areas, by sea/river fronts and bridges. Wind damage is not covered by our warranty.
Avoid leaning on your umbrella and using it as a walking stick. Not only do you run the risk of snapping the shaft in half but repeatedly hitting the umbrella on the ground can eventually collapse and dismantle the frame.
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 open to dry away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.
Keep away from radiators and hot places to prevent warping.
Take time to neatly fold & unfold to keep your umbrella looking new and prevent stretching / tearing off of the fastener.
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.
