Many types of businesses have outdoor sitting areas for guests to enjoy. However, not all of these are covered, which can discourage people from using these areas. Unprotected outdoor sitting areas have no protection against rain or direct sunlight. Most people do not enjoy being exposed to the elements while sipping on a freshly prepared cup of coffee. One way to increase customer usage of your outdoor areas is to use patio umbrellas over your tables. These large umbrellas block out direct sunlight and can even keep people dry when it is lightly raining.
Secure Patio Umbrellas to the Ground to Prevent Them from Tipping Over
You will want to make sure your patio umbrellas are properly secured to prevent them from falling over. Most outdoor tables have a hole in the middle where you slide the umbrella. The umbrella uses the table for support, which keeps it from being knocked over. However, you should still use a support stand on the end of the umbrella or secure it into the ground using another method. During inclement weather, you may want to close the umbrella and put a protective cover over it. In highly windy conditions, you should consider removing the umbrellas and bringing them indoors.
