SCIENCE BEHIND SUNBRELLA SHADE

SCIENCE BEHIND SUNBRELLA SHADE

Solar radiation can dramatically change the temperatures of an object, heating it far above the actual air temperature. The proper shade over your dining or deep seating areas can reduce the temperature by up to 20%. A sweltering 95°F can become a comfortable 80°F with the proper shade! Read the Science Behind Shade to find the best umbrella or cantilever that will cover your dining or deep seating.

WIND VENT OPTIONS

WIND VENT OPTIONS

Most Treasure Garden umbrellas are made with a single wind vent (SWV) unless otherwise stated. Double wind vents (DWV) are optional and available on select models.

SWV: Single wind vents are sufficient for most applications.

DWV: Double wind vents are typically used for applications where the wind is a significant factor, as well as an additional design element.

VALANCE OPTIONS

VALANCE OPTIONS

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR TREASURE GARDEN UMBRELLA FOR A REPLACEMENT CANOPY

When purchasing a replacement canopy, keep in mind that canopies and frames are often brand-specific. When ordering a replacement, you’ll want to know your existing umbrella’s brand, model, and shape. Here’s how to measure for your replacement canopy:

  • Count the number of ribs (slender, pliable pieces that support the fabric canopy)
  • Measure the rib length, starting at the top finial (the decorative piece at the top of the umbrella that helps secure the canopy to the frame) to the bottom of the rib (the outside edge of the umbrella). Multiply the rib length by two to get the length of your umbrella canopy.
  • Order a replacement canopy according to your canopy’s length, shape, brand, and model.

HOW TO INSTALL YOUR REPLACEMENT CANOPY

Replacing a canopy on a market umbrella

Replacing a canopy on a market umbrella

  • Take the umbrella out of its base.
  • Unscrew the finial.
  • Slip the cover pockets off the ribs.
  • Pull the canopy off the frame.
  • Slip the new canopy over the frame
  • Screw on the finial.
  • Slip the canopy pockets over the ribs.
  • Place the umbrella back in its base.
  • Open and close the umbrella several times to make sure everything works and looks properly.

Replacing a canopy on a cantilever umbrella

  • Make sure the canopy is in a closed position. For square and rectangle canopies, use a Phillips screwdriver to unscrew all 8 screws from spring-loaded rib end caps and set screws aside for later use. (For octagon canopies, skip to the next step.)
  • (NOTE: A ladder and two-person team are recommended for canopy removal and replacement.) While one person holds the ladder for safety, the second person climbs the ladder until they reach the top of the umbrella.
  • From the top of the canopy, open the velcro flap(s) and unzip (if applicable) the canopy. Begin to slide the canopy down the ribs. Safely step down the ladder and continue to remove the canopy. Velcro and/or zipper styles may vary by model.
  • Unfold the new replacement canopy. Gather the bottom of the canopy (larger opening) to the top of the canopy (smaller opening).
  • For octagon canopies, slide the top opening of the canopy over all 8 ribs. For square and rectangle canopies, start by sliding top opening of the canopy over the 4 longest ribs.
  • When the 4 longest ribs are inside the canopy, pull the canopy up slightly and pull the canopy over the 4 shortest ribs.
  • Once all 8 ribs are inside the canopy, begin to slide the canopy up while the second person holds the canopy to dragging.
  • Continue to slide the canopy up the ribs while safely climbing up the ladder.
  • When you reach the top of the umbrella, slide the canopy down under the cap.
  • Make sure velcro and zipper on canopy are facing the back side (towards the canopy support arm).
  • Velcro top together first to keep the canopy from sliding back down the ribs.
  • Zip up the canopy and velcro flap together. Tuck the canopy under the cap.
  • Safely climb down the ladder. Line up the ends of the canopy with spring-loaded rib ends.
  • For octagon canopies, slide spring-loaded rib ends into canopy pockets located under the canopy. For square and rectangle canopies, attach 8 screws back onto the end of the canopy and spring-loaded rib end caps.
  • Open and close the umbrella several times to make sure everything works and looks properly.
