Umbrella Frame & Fabric Care


When not in use, close the umbrella and cover with a Shelta Easireach Cover.  Before storing, make sure the umbrella is dry and keep in a dry, shaded location.

Fabrics may be treated with a fabric protector such as ‘Scotchguard’ for additional protection. Soiling can be minimised by simply brushing off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabric or spot cleaning soon after stains occur.

To clean umbrella canopies, lightly brush the open umbrella, then wash with a mixture of mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and leave the umbrella open until completely dry.


Umbrellas are not permanent shade structures and must be lowered when unattended or in windy conditions. Excessive wind puts great stress on the frame, which can cause damage to the umbrella and danger to people.  Domestic, freestanding, non-wind rated umbrellas are not recommended for exposed environments such as high balconies or roof tops.

Please carefully follow the installation instructions provided with the umbrella; if in doubt, consult a qualified trades-person.

Appropriate bases and anchoring systems should be used to weight your umbrella down to avoid danger to people and damage to the umbrella.
