When it comes to handling wind and sun, Tuuci® uses durable, High Performance Textiles manufactured by carefully choosen partners, including Sunbrella that can withstand the variable daily weather. Our parasols protect guests from sun, wind, rain, and ocean spray without fading or molding. Here’s what makes our parasols the best choice for your patio.
Some parasol manufacturers apply a UV finishing spray to their products. This layering effect wears off over time, leaving your parasol susceptible to fading. The fabric we use is made with fibers saturated with UV-stable pigments. Both the color and sun protection are woven into the construction of each parasol, making them resistant to sun damage for the life of the product. Solution-dyed acrylic fabrics allow the color to sink completely into every thread, as opposed to applying only to the exterior.
The weave of the fabric allows a small amount of air to pass through the parasol. This feature creates comfort for everyone below and reduces moisture build-up in the specially engineered fabric that keeps mold and mildew at bay. The breathable fabric also helps the parasol canopy stabilize itself on breezy days.
For outdoor patio spaces that require ongoing wind-driven water resistance (boats, docks, beaches, and boardwalks), we offer premium specialty Sunbrella fabrics with a durable polyurethane undercoating. This coating allows the parasol to resist moisture and wind effectively day after day.
We offer a variety of mesh densities to compliment your outdoor space. If you want to allow a small amount of sun and breeze to filter through the parasol for ambiance, explore a light grade option. Do you want full protection from rain, wind, and sun? Choose a fabric with a tight weave pattern.
Our parasol fabrics are endorsed by The Skin Cancer Foundation. The shade offered by Tuuci parasols has been found to assist in preventing sun-induced damage to the skin when paired with sunscreen use.
Tuuci parasols are warrantied for 25-35mph winds and tested up to 50mph. We do recommend users close the parasols once sustained winds reach 25mph, primarily for their own safety. For information on the warranty available for your product, be sure to consult your sales representative.
