FLEXIBILITY IS OUR GREATEST STRENGTH
There are many design and component elements that make FiberBuilt’s umbrellas both unique and superior. FiberBuilt’s state of the art fiberglass ribs are both strong and resilient. They hold up to the harshest winds, salt air and driving rain without losing their shape or weakening.
Our ribs flex without breaking and last four to five times longer than traditional steel or wood ribs which can corrode, rot, rust, splinter or warp. In addition to our innovative flexible fiberglass ribs and our robust construction methods, FiberBuilt is continuously go through the R & D testing process to improve existing products, as well as add new styles to the line that will fill new needs we discover in the marketplace.
Our exclusive FiberTeak™ poles have heavy gauge aluminum cores and are finished to simulate wood grain, bamboo and coconut palm. The accompanying hubs and finials are designed to complement the look of the pole. Our Powder coated poles feature a long lasting, color-durable and fade resistant protective finish offered in a variety of colors. The stainless steel and rust resistant hardware in all our umbrellas have been selected to support the products durability and ease of maintenance.
For its inherent strength and longevity, standard canopies on most of our umbrellas and cabanas are made of marine grade fabrics. Furniture grade acrylic fabrics are also available. On select models vinyl coated weave and spun acrylic fabrics are used. We realize that in many instances our canopies need to coordinate with the rest of the furniture in the outdoor room’s décor. Therefore, we offer a wide selection of fabrics including solid colors, textures and patterns. The canopy can also be customized with secondary fabrics used as bandings, alternating vents or alternating panels. For locations that are particularly subjected to high winds, we offer our Aruba canopies which sport extra large vents to allow for greater air flow through the vent openings and more stability of the umbrella.
As added design elements, we offer such details as scalloped valances and the ability to have your property’s name and logo silk screened on to the canopy.
