Balcony parasols guide

If there is no private garden or terrace, a balcony is often the only way to enjoy the Sunday breakfast in the open air or to end the evening with friends in the fresh air on a balmy summer evening. The balcony may be so small, in the sunshine balcony users need one parasolto protect yourself from hot sun rays. Parasols for the balcony are available in different versions with different fabric qualities and several mounting options.

Round or square – which parasol fits perfectly on the balcony?

Classic umbrellas are round. The round shape is the simplest shape to produce but not necessarily optimal when it comes to shielding as much sunlight as possible. For the balcony rather square umbrellas own. Rectangular or square umbrellas fit better to the often rectangular floor plan of a balcony. The second advantage of angular balcony umbrellas is that they can better cover rectangular balcony tables and their chairs. For balconies, some manufacturers even offer very practical semi-screens in a rectangular shape. These umbrellas are ideal for narrow balconies. The attachment takes place either directly on the wall or in a massive umbrella stand,

The parasol with crank by casa.pro is the ideal half screen for small balconies. The umbrella is half round and measures 3 meters in diameter. That is, the parasol is 3 meters wide and 1.5 meters deep. The umbrella pole consists of a sturdy metal tube.

Umbrella stand, wall mounting or mounting on the balcony railing – what is better?

Umbrella stands must be heavy enough to hold the parasol safely even in windy conditions and when it is inclined. The high weight is also a disadvantage of the umbrella stand. They are difficult to relocate and can scratch delicate floor coverings when pushed over them. In addition, an umbrella stand takes part of the precious space on the balcony. Better for a balcony are wall brackets or brackets that are attached to the balcony railing. Wall brackets are attached to the wall with dowels and provide a secure hold. For a railing bracket is not every balcony railing suitable. However, handrails for the railing make it possible to put the sunshade as far as possible against the sun, so that the shadow of the sunshade can cover a larger area.

Of the Parasol with UV protectionby greemotion is a rectangular parasol for the balcony. The screen measures 230 x 150 cm and is also suitable for small balconies. The umbrella pole is in two parts and can be adjusted in height and with an articulation in the inclination and adapted to the light.

Cotton, linen or acrylic– which material is the best fabric?

Depending on the manufacturer and umbrella model umbrellas are covered with a cotton fabric, linen fabric or weather-resistant acrylic fiber fabrics. The quality of the fabrics used has a decisive influence on the total price of a balcony parasol. If you like colorful, multi-colored umbrellas, you should make sure that the fabrics are lightfast. Cheap goods often fades after just a few weeks and is unsightly. For a good one sun protectionprovide substances that are labeled UPF 50+. These fabrics filter sunlight and UV rays just as well as a high quality filter suncream,

Before choosing a parasol, it is worth measuring the size of the balcony and choosing a parasol accordingly. Rectangular screens cover a larger area than the classic ones round umbrellas, If the balcony railing is stable enough for a parasol bracket, it is worth using a screen that can be fixed with a railing bracket. The space for the umbrella stand can then be used more meaningfully. The higher the upholstery, the longer the umbrella will last and the colors will stay beautiful for a long time.
