Science behind Shade
Solar radiation can dramatically change the temperatures of an object that it hits, heating it far above the actual air temperature. The proper shade over your dining or deep seating areas can reduce the temperature up to 20%. A sweltering 95° can become a comfortable 80° 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
Most umbrellas Treasure Garden offers 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 application where the wind is a significant factor, as well as an additional design element.
