Care & Maintenance

Every Woodline shade solution is meticulously engineered to the nth degree to maximize not just their form and functions, but also to make sure that they outlast even the harshest conditions. Each item is crafted from the finest marine grade weather-resistant materials, specifically selected for their ability to endure. Though our shade solutions are built to last, the relentless and extreme nature of the outdoors dictates that proper care and maintenance will always extend the lifespan of any item.

Frames

Constructed from the finest quality aluminum, marine grade stainless steel and durable and sustainable eucalyptus timber. Our frames have been tested in some of the world’s most inhospitable environments and have only ever benefited from the appropriate application of caution and common sense in excessive wind conditions. We advocate the use of our cover bags to prolong the life of the canopy frames and their covering fabrics. We recommend the closure and safe storage of any collapsible and removable components when the parasol is not in use or when winds are expected to exceed 40km/h (24.8mph).

Wooden Components

We only use sustainable eucalyptus timber hand-picked for its strength, weather-resistance, and replenishment efficiency from the world’s finest FSC accredited plantations and timber mills.Our wooden components are treated with marine yacht varnish to fortify them for outdoor living. We recommend the periodic care of wooden components with a light sanding and reapplication of the varnish coating once a year to maintain the wood’s natural beauty.

Fittings

All fittings, nuts, bolts, pulleys and cleats components are made with high grade stainless steel and weather proof nylon. Maintaining these fittings and components is imperative to the longevity and the proper operation of the shade system. A simple occasional fresh water rinsing will help keep them working well and looking good.

Bases

It is essential to pick the right base for your parasol, consult the base chapter as a guide and talk to our sales team to ensure that the parasol you choose has the appropriate base to keep it anchored properly.

Fabrics

Our canopies and fabric covers are made from the most durable, colorfast, and dirt-repellent fabrics in the world. That said, proper care such as storage when not in use and cleaning from time to time will undoubtedly extend their lifespan.
