The Pure Garden 9 foot Auto Crank Aluminum Patio Umbrella is ideal for your patio, backyard, balcony, deck, swimming pool or any other outdoor entertainment area to control your exposure to the sun. The umbrella is designed to keep you cool and comfortable. Made with eight supporting ribs, sturdy powder coated aluminum pole, and heavy duty fabric, this patio umbrella has the structure to stand the test of time. Vented canopy is designed to facilitate air flow, keeping the umbrella from blowing away in windy climates. Can be used through a table or free standing with a base (not included). The easy to use auto crank feature makes it easy to put the umbrella up and take down.
I’m delighted with this umbrella! It took literally 30 seconds to remove from the box and put in place. The crank mechanism works smoothly and easily. I bought the tan color; it’s a beige ‘linen’ color that is perfect for my needs.
The color is not tan but a creamy off-white nylon. It is very bright underneath this umbrella. I wanted to reduce heat on our patio, which it does. If you need to avoid sunlight this won't work for you. I am careful to put these down if there is a chance of wind. They quickly start to flap noisily in the breeze. I've used wooden framed tarp umbrellas in past summers. They are heavier & more stable in a breeze but suffer sun damage before the season ends. This nylon canopy is looking good!
