FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Wind-broken tents and umbrellas fill our landfills and hospitalize thousands of people every year.
The Solbello Shade is the only wind driven umbrella. It’s patented design enables it to self-adjust as the wind shifts, therefore Solbello is the only shade to fully work with the wind, making your beach days safe and stress free.
How does it work?
How much wind is needed?
The Solbello Shade is powered by the wind. As little as 3 mph is all that is needed to float the shade effortlessly above you.
What if the wind changes direction?
As the wind shifts direction the shade was designed to self-adjust with the wind! (patented design)
No problem! A No-Wind Kit is included for those rare days that the wind isn't blowing at the beach (takes about 30 seconds). Do not use the No-Wind Kit in wind if the ground conditions don't allow the stakes to be planted securely. Always use your best judgement and use at your own risk.
Can it be Too Windy?
We've tested Solbello in winds exceeding 40 MPH, which is considered a tropical storm.
Is it Noisy?
Working directly with our fabric mill, we are proud to have devised a process to ensure the fabric is very quiet.
What's the Level of UV Protection?
Solbello's canopy has been treated to provide 50+ UPF Sun protection, meaning it blocks at least 98% of harmful UV rays (the canopy also includes a waterproof treatment).
How Many People will it Accommodate?
Solbello provides an average 60 square feet of shade. This is ideal for two or three.
Where to Use
Is Solbello Only for Beaches?
Beaches offer open space air flow combined with natural sea breezes to make our product work right. Flat-wide-open beaches are ideal.
Using the No-Wind Kit, anywhere with penetrable ground has potential.
Manual, Specs, and Care Instructions
Wind generally stops as the sun sets and picks back up when the sun rises. During beach days (11am - 4pm), almost all beaches get a sufficient (3mph+) and consistent breeze more than 90% of the time.
