Proper usage and maintenance
Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.

If the fabric becomes dirty, try to remove the dirt with a brush or damp cloth.

Kapur is commonly found in Southeast Asia. The Skagerak Kapur comes from Indonesia and is FSC 100% certified.
Kapur is a strong, durable type of wood – making it the perfect choice for parasol poles.
Use soapy water and wipe with a dry cloth or use suitable furniture cleaner for outdoor use.
The parasol pole has been lacquered. The wood comes in a variety of warm colors and patinates very little as time goes by because of the treated surface. It is important that the parasol is fitted with a stabile stand in an umbrella foot to prevent damages on the pole. Always make sure the chosen size of parasol is compatible with the strength and weight of the umbrella foot. All Skagerak umbrellas larger than size Ø270, including size 270x270, require an umbrella foot of minimum 50 kg.
Note: Regarding item number S1910130 Catania Umbrella Ø270: Remember to retighten the metal joint on the parasol pole from time to time; making sure the two parts are not loosening up as this will damage the brackets and increase the risk of tilting.
During the winter it is advisable to store the parasol in an unheated room such as a garage or cellar. However it is possible to leave the parasol outside all year round if using a cover.
PP resin is a highly durable material and can stand a great deal of wear and tear in outdoor weathers. The material is used on both finials and hubs on Messina and Catania Umbrellas. The small complex parts are well served with this colorfast material – securing that no color rubs off on the light-colored textiles.
