Libra Centerpost Umbrella from Shademaker
This trim market umbrella has an aluminum center post with an anodized silver finish and a canopy covered in UV-resistant fabric in multiple colors.
This uncomplicated patio umbrella has a simplistic nautical-inspired design and ubiquitous appeal. Its slender mast and ribs are made from lightweight but durable aluminum that has a corrosion-resistant anodized silver finish. The minimalist hub assembly is made from high performance XXX that is weather-resistant. Libra's manual lift mechanism utilizes a counterweight to make opening and closing the outdoor umbrella easy.
Its low-profile canopy comes in two shapes and sizes with a single vent on top. Both square and octagon shades are covered in solution-dyed acrylic or polyester fabric in a wide variety of vibrant colors and classic neutral tones. These modern synthetic textiles from Sunbrella®, O'Bravia® and Outdura® are fade-resistant and will protect you from harsh ultraviolet rays. This is extremely important if you plan to spend hours outside in the sun or simply wish to escape the glare and heat for a relaxing few minutes.
Libra can be stabilized by means of a mobile base or fixed mounting apparatus. The portable patio umbrella base (Shademaker recommends this option) is made from black steel or cast aluminum in black or platinum finish. There are a number of square and round bases with casters or wheels from which to choose, or you can stack simple plates. The minimum required base weight for this deck umbrella is 100 pounds, but additional plates can be added to provide extra stability for windy or high traffic environments. Alternatively, the umbrella can be secured via a fixed mount kit to either concrete or the ground. This method creates a small footprint and may be a good option if you don't intend to move the shade.
Libra is a great patio umbrella for smaller areas or for more intimate shade. Place one between a couple of sunloungers and another in the center of a bistro table and you've got a well-protected poolside and deck. It's also perfect for casual outdoor dining settings at cafes, restaurants or other commercial environments.
