Our 6' patio umbrellas feature aluminum poles, steel ribs and a pop-up opening system (you push a ring on the pole to open it). The smaller canopy span is perfect for two person bistro sets. Sunbrella canopies are made with awning grade fabric, giving you a 10 year warranty against fading and loss of strength. Patio umbrellas are a traditional umbrella with a valance hanging on each panel of the canopy. Choose the canopy color that coordinates with your outdoor cushions and pillows!
