Do you worry about your umbrella getting blown away by wind? To secure your umbrella in loose beach sand, you will need accessories. There are two types of accessories: the umbrella base and the sand anchor.
The sunshade base is secured by sand anchors made up of large spiral threads. A more popular choice is an umbrella base. The disc-shaped structure has a rod that rises from the center. A knob is required to fix the umbrella on the rod.
A base that can hold a table umbrella must weigh between 20 and 45 lbs. The base must weigh 30 lbs if your table umbrella measures 6-7 1/2 feet tall. The base weight of a freestanding umbrella should not exceed 50 lbs. A base that weighs 75 lbs is recommended for freestanding umbrellas with heights between 8 and 11 feet.
There are many types of umbrella bases on the market. There are many options for bases to match outdoor furniture decor.
Cast iron: This base is available in beautiful swirls or sunburst designs. These heavy bases are classic in appearance thanks to a powder-coated black or bronze finish. They are not susceptible to rusting in high humidity areas, but they are more expensive than the other bases.
Fiberglass: These weather-resistant bases are strong and durable. For small umbrellas, this base should be filled with sand and concrete. You can choose from black, white, bronze, or simulated teak colors.
