Aluminum Patio Umbrellas
If you’re looking for a tried and true option for your patio, it’s tough to beat classic aluminum umbrellas. Galtech offers them range of canopy shapes (octagonal, round, oval) and sizes (7.5 foot to 11 foot), making it easy to find the ideal aluminum style to suit your outdoor furniture layout. For consumers who prioritize function, there are also a variety of options for effortless tilting and opening.
Plus, Galtech’s catalog of Aluminum Umbrellas is also home to specialty styles that are worth getting excited over. A couple of our favorite picks include 9 foot and 11 foot umbrellas that are equipped with amber colored LED lights, making them dazzling decorative pieces when the sun goes down.
Commercial Aluminum Umbrellas
Commercial umbrellas are constructed for use in spaces such as restaurants, cafes and resorts. Their designs emphasize convenience and stability; common characteristics include quick release ribs that are easily replaceable and exceptionally strong one-piece poles. While these contract umbrellas were crafted with businesses in mind, some homeowners also choose to furnish their private residential spaces with them because of durability and functionality factors.
Wood Market Umbrellas
Go the rustic route with the timeless beauty of wood patio umbrellas with poles constructed from high-quality lumber. These products possess a simple, elemental appeal which will merge perfectly with outdoor spaces that prominently feature natural materials. Like aluminum umbrellas, they’re offered in plenty of shapes and sizes—in fact, this collection includes everything from a
6 foot bistro umbrella that’s ideal for intimate dining to an expansive 11 foot round umbrella that’s great for kicking back in the shade with friends and family. Additionally, all of Galtech’s wood umbrellas are given a marine varnish, making them extra durable and weather-resistant.
Similar to Galtech’s wood umbrellas, these teak offerings are a great match for patio layouts with handcrafted outdoor furniture made from natural materials such as wicker and wood. Genuine teak is, of course, an aesthetically pleasing choice; however, it’s also important to note that it has superior strength and resilience. This smaller collection includes a large-scale 11 foot round umbrella as well as a 9 foot crank umbrella and a 9 foot pulley umbrella.
Galtech also offers two unique cantilever umbrellas that are smart picks for any larger outdoor space in need of reliable sun protection. Both cantilever styles (10 Foot x 10 Foot Square and 11 Foot Round) are impressively sized. However, when it comes to opening/lifting, they’re exceptionally simple to use. The key design element here is a cantilever arm with easy-grip handles that are used to control the canopies in one fluid motion. Additionally, the canopies have rotating wheels that allow for tilting in all directions, providing continuous shade throughout the day.
Customizing Your Galtech Umbrella
When purchasing a Galtech umbrella, consumers are given plenty of opportunities to create a custom product that will match their own their own style and space. As we’ve discussed, materials also play a major role in determining the aesthetic of an umbrella. Additionally, there is a wealth of canopy shapes to explore, from trendy square and rectangular styles to more classic circular and octagonal ones. However, its Galtech’s array of available fabric and finish color options that are especially useful when it comes to personalization.
For example, a mix of understated and bold colors can give your supply a contemporary edge; as pictured above, an LED aluminum umbrella with a crisp pole finish and neutral canopy will make a welcome addition to any modern outdoor arrangement. Meanwhile, teak and wood umbrellas tend to look best within traditional layouts or settings with a natural, casual vibe.
And finally, Galtech has numerous umbrella base options that allow you to further personalize your purchase. Choose a traditional-look cast iron bases with intricate decorative detailing or sleek steel bases that have a more contemporary feel. These bases come in a variety of weights and finishes, so there’s a great match for every umbrella size, material and color.
