What is a Parasol? 

A parasol is a folding piece of fabric that’s supported by wooden, metal, or fibreglass ribs. Parasols are also called umbrellas. They come in various sizes, shapes, and colours. They work to protect people from the sun’s penetrating UV rays, rain, wind, and more.

Parasols can be used in the garden at home or for businesses. They provide excellent protection on terraces, at the beach, on the waterfront, around the pool, and more.

What are the Benefits of a Parasol?

A parasol has many benefits, including: 

Reducing the temperature

Parasols have been shown to reduce the temperature by about 10 degrees on a hot summer day. They provide shade to keep people cool and comfortable, even on sunny days.

Blocks UV rays

The fabrics used for a parasol is made to block UV rays from the sun. The fabrics are also usually waterproof to protect from rain.

Improves privacy

Whether the parasol is used at home or for a business, it also offers more privacy. It’s possible to position the parasol in such a way that it can block the view of others. 

Protection for outdoor furniture

Parasols are also a great way to protect outdoor furniture from the effects of the weather and UV rays. The fabric can also protect the finish and fabrics on outdoor furniture to prevent water damage and fading.

Coordinated outdoor spaces

Whether you use a parasol at home or for your business, it’s possible to coordinate the décor of outdoor spaces. For instance, the umbrella can add a pop of colour, take a veranda to the next level, and add a coordinated look to a business. What’s more, the parasols can be customised for your home or commercial property. 

Choosing the Right Parasol

Being outside is always a great way to relax and take in the fresh air, whether you’re in the garden or want to provide a great experience for your customers. Having protection from the sun and weather allows you & your family or customers to stay outside longer and enjoy the experience. 

Whether you’re looking for a parasol for use at your home or business, it can be challenging to choose the right one. Here are some things to consider before you buy an outdoor parasol Leeds. 

Garden verandas UK are made with an aluminium frame and toughened glass for the panels. The aluminium frame is durable and rust-resistant. It’s also powder coated to ensure it lasts and holds its beauty for years. 

Assess the Landscape

The first step is to consider the landscape of the space where the outdoor parasol(s) will be used. Is your space residential or commercial?

If the parasol will provide shade for a table or a group of tables, be sure to measure the table. You want the umbrella to cover the table without overpowering the space.

Next, consider whether the position of the parasol will touch a roof or overhang. The goal is to allow some space between the parasol and the roof/overhang so they don’t touch.

Where will the parasol be located? Will it be near a grill? If so, it’s best to place the table and the umbrella well away from open flames or a heat source. The umbrella also shouldn’t be too large and touch hot surfaces.

The Shape

Now you’re ready to consider the shape of your parasol! Not all parasols are round. Some are rectangular, octagonal, and other shapes.

Consider the shape of your table. Is it round, rectangular, or square? Choose an umbrella shape that will best cover the table and those sitting at the table.

How Often Will You Use the Parasol? 

Will you be outside every day to use the parasol? Or will it only be used occasionally? This is an essential consideration. It’s also necessary to consider the amount of wind or the direction of the breeze in the garden.

For areas where the umbrella will be used every day, it’s better to invest in a more expensive model that’s easy to put up and down. These parasols are more durable and made to withstand daily use.

And for a business, a commercial parasol is the best option. These are made to be used every day all day long. They can also be customised with company branding.
