While you won't be outside enjoying coffee in a 60kph wind, an umbrella's wind rating is the key to its everyday performance

The lower your umbrella’s wind rating, the sooner the umbrella will be shaking, flapping, and unpleasant to sit under, well before it gets close to it’s rated limits.

We engineered our Alfresco umbrella for up to wind speeds of 60kph because that’s what’s needed for stable and comfortable performance in 0-30kph winds – when you would actually be using it.

In general, the material and design requirements needed to achieve a higher wind rating give you a better long term product, regardless of the conditions.
