Wind Damage:

The Shade highly recommends that no umbrella, regardless of size or weight, ever be left unattended in the open

To ensure the stability of your umbrella, please observe proper placement, and use sufficient weight (base).


Irregularities in Production Process:

The possibility of “Irregularities” in the product surface may occur during the production process. However, these irregularities do not reduce the quality of the product. The Shade monitors every stage of production to ensure a clean and consistent appearance on every part.



Rust is a natural part of the aging process of all Steel or Iron-based materials and is therefore NOT considered a defect. The Shade bases are designed to require minimum maintenance. Bases should be kept clean. Do not let dirt build up on the bases. Cleaning with mild soap and water, and seasonal touch-up of any scratches, chips or occasional rust seepage from crevices or hidden, un-finish-able surfaces inherent in some designs is all that is required. Never leave bases standing in water. To keep your bases looking their best, you may wish to store them when not in use for an extended period of time.


Seaside and Indoor Pool Usage:

CAUTION: Seaside and inside pool use, salt & chlorides can accumulate on the powder coat finish, leading to finish failure. Failure or neglect to make needed cleanings may cause paint to blister, and such failure will void limited warranty. This warranty is provided in lieu of all other warranties, expressed or implied.
