  • Both materials stand up exceptionally against harsh weather conditions for many years. The fabrics will not stretch or shrink, have excellent resistance to wind tear-outs, repel dirt and resist fading. Canopies will not absorb moisture, but will "breath", providing extra cooling effect. Our special sewing technique makes it possible to create waterproof canopies.

Uhlmann Giant Umbrellas can be installed either PERMANENTLY or they are RE-LOCATABLE for easy and safe operation. In both cases the safety and stability of the installation is the primary objective.


When the installation is permanent we use our two hot-tip galvanized pole and base plate that incorporates a special clamp and a counter screw that provides absolute vertical stability. The base part of the assembly is even with the floor plates and securely embedded into concrete. The pole plate is screwed to the base. The base stand is fully galvanized and powder coated to match any requirement, or to match the color of the umbrella. We specify the required foundation size, based on size of umbrella.

Concrete Foundation for 
Type T, TL and TLx Giant Umbrellas

The dimensions of the foundation may not be smaller than the dimensions specified.

The location of the assembly must be selected in such a way that allows 8 inch minimum distance between the edge of the open umbrella and the building, or any other obstacle.

When several umbrellas are installed in close proximity, the base assembly should be located in such a way, that a distance of 8 inches will remain between the umbrellas.


The safety of persons and property is our primarily concern with portable installation also. We strongly recommend not to exceed the maximum recommended sizes for portable installation and to adhere to the recommended counter weight requirements.

The maximum size umbrellas recommended for portable installation are for
             round umbrellas up to 16' 5" diameter,
             square umbrellas up to 16' 5" x 16' 5" and
             rectangular umbrellas up to 21' 4" x 13' 1" sizes. 

Strong Wind umbrellas of any size are NOT recommended for portable installation.

Portable Base for Type T       Portable Base for Type TL/TLx       Adjustable Foot               Optional Castor Wheels

Fully galvanized welded steel base frame with adjustable plate assembly on all four corners to eliminate the
possible un-evenness of the ground.

  • When maximum portability is required (for smaller umbrellas), the base frame can be installed on castor rollers with breaks.
  • The base frame is designed to hold standard size concrete slabs (16" and 20") that firmly counter-balance the structure.
  • We recommend the required weight to secure the stability of the umbrella in our portable base.
