Unique Half Canopy
A full umbrella with a wide canopy can actually be a nuisance if you don’t have enough space for it. This half umbrella is perfect for patios and gardens where you want to place the umbrella next to a structure.
A sun shade has to be 3-point mounted, which can be inconvenient or even impossible. A large canopy leaves open space where sun can seap through. This half canopy umbrella is like the Goldilocks of the canopy world.
It’ll fit snug against your shed, garage, or outside wall of your home. It’ll act as a sun shade without all that extra anchoring you would have to do. It can easily be moved as needed, too. If you don’t like it in the right-hand corner, move it to the left.
Coated Steel Frame
The frame of this umbrella is a black steel that is powder coated for durability. If you don’t know what powder coating is, or why it’s a good thing, here’s a little explanation.
We won’t go crazy with a ton of details. It’s a little complicated when you dig deep, but basically, it’s a coating that enhances the metal’s durability outdoors.
Instead of painting the steel or aluminum, powder coating is magnetically transferred to the metal. It becomes a part of the metal’s structure. That means it’s another layer that protects.
It won’t peel or chip leaving the metal exposed to the potential of rust. It’ll prolong the life of your metal outdoor furniture. Wherever possible, try to get powder coated metal furniture for your backyard.
Twenty LED Lights
We’ve covered many kinds of outdoor umbrellas here. Enjoying a cool breeze while being protected from the harsh rays of the sun. That’s the essence of backyard relaxation.
We’ve talked about full umbrellas, ones with lights, and ones with unique shapes. This umbrella has a few unique properties. The shape is one, and the lights are another.
The lights are solar-powered LED. There are 20 of them along the underside of the canopy. Each rib has 4 lights for illumination after the sun goes down. Backyard lighting is vital to continuing the relaxation in your backyard even after you don’t need the umbrella’s protection.
Solar Panel for Lights
On the top of the canopy is a solar panel that will gather all the energy needed to power these LED lights.
You don’t have to worry about wires and electricity, so this umbrella can be as far away from the house as you’d like. The solar panel provides the LED lights with 9 to 12 hours of glow.
Each day, the solar panel gathers enough power to light the LEDs for hours into the night. This saves on your home electricity bill when you don’t have to plug this into an outlet.
Fun Colors Available
There are a few colors available for this umbrella. Most outdoor umbrellas come in a few traditional colors like blue and beige. This umbrella sticks with the fun colors like pink, teal, and orange. For neutrals, there are black and gray for choices.
If you’re using this in the far reaches of the garden, why not pick a color you wouldn’t normally? The pink or the teal will look fantastic among all your lovely flowers.
It doesn’t have to match the house or the rest of your patio furniture. This gives you more opportunity for fun, vibrant colors.
