How to choose a parasol weight or base?


A parasol base will make life much easier when enjoying the sunshine, relaxing and eating outdoors sitting on your garden furniture under your umbrella. However, choosing the right product is important in order for it to serve its purpose and work correctly.
When a parasol is not secured tightly or put in a suitable base, it will cause many problems. When there is wind and sudden breezes, it will move around and shake, making noises and it may even tip over; knocking over food or drinks on your table. Some bases are quite heavy, limiting the manoeuvrability of them which doesn’t offer much flexibility when you want to change the position or even location of your umbrella.
The wrong base or weight can also damage wooden decking and terraces, if it is too heavy or badly designed. Some of them also have adjustable caps and bolts that fail to secure the pole of the umbrella as it is not the right match.
To ensure you buy a suitable product, you need to consider the size and heaviness of your umbrella, along with the style of your table. It is worth noting that a base is lighter and easier to move around, while a parasol weight tends to be heavier. Remember to pick one that is strong enough to keep your garden umbrella stable and is also the right size to fit through your table.
Having a base or weight for your parasol enables you to create a perfect shady and cooler area on your balcony or in your garden so you can enjoy the heat, but be protected against the rays of the sun.
They are ideal in providing a cooler place for kids, for those who don’t like too much sun and for those long periods of entertaining guests so no one has to worry about getting sunburnt.
