Strong wind is the biggest challenge for a high-quality parasol. The larger the covering, the larger the area of attack for the wind and the more important are professional solutions like our storm-proof parasol types. Our strongest versions, in combination with the appropriate ground anchoring, can withstand wind speeds of up to 100 km/h - and that when open.
For locations that are permanently exposed to the wind, we also offer specially reinforced umbrella types that remain wind stable even at speeds of up to 130 km/h, making them ideal for outdoor areas by the sea or in alpine landscapes. When packed, the umbrellas can withstand even greater wind forces and thanks to our smooth opening and closing mechanisms, you can react flexibly to sudden changes in weather conditions.
How we make our parasols windproof
In order to construct a parasol or traffic light umbrella windproof, every detail is important. Thanks to our cooperation with architects and structural engineers, we know how to secure a parasol in the wind and what reinforcements are required. Which parasol is suitable for how much wind depends on various factors:
- Round or oval masts with a strong diameter
- Stable, reinforced struts
- Tear-resistant and hard-wearing coverings
With these features we can make even traffic light umbrellas storm-proof and thus offer you a large selection of different umbrellas, independent of location and weather conditions.

Which parasol at how much wind is suitable
Many of our classic parasols can withstand wind forces of up to 60 m/h with the appropriate ground anchoring, so that you can even use traffic light parasols in windy conditions. If you are unsure whether a traffic light umbrella is permanently suitable for your location, you will find what you are looking for in our telescopic umbrellas which, with the appropriate anchoring and reinforcement, can withstand wind forces of up to 130 km/h.
If the weather conditions are so uncomfortable that no guest can stay outside anyway, you can quickly and easily secure the parasol in the wind thanks to the smooth-running mechanisms and practical accessories. With the ground sleeves in various designs, the parasol is securely anchored during the first assembly and with the matching safety straps and protective covers you can protect the material from wear and tear.
And last but not least, we have also made provisions for the worst case scenario and offer almost every single part for replacement, from individual screws and replacement struts to completely new coverings, to make our parasols storm-proof but also sustainable.
