For permanent installation, we recommend our 2-part fully galvanised ground sleeve system. The umbrella is firmly clamped and secured with an additional lock screw.
The ground sleeve is set vertically and on ground level into a concrete foundation to ensure a secure standing position. In umbrellas with electrics, all cables are hidden from view inside the mast and the ground sleeve. This system ensures compliance with even the most rigorous Health & Safety regulations.
The base plate is used in cases where a concrete foundation is not possible due to existing structural limitations. Prime examples are roof terraces, balconies, and locations with underlying basements, cellars or car parks.
Safe and secure installation using a base plate is achieved by means of 8 anchor screws and heavy duty dowels.
For mobile installations, we recommend our fully galvanised and powder-coated portable bases for use with standard concrete paving slabs. The four corner supports can be individually adjusted to compensate any unevenness in the underlying ground.
Type T: portable base 1 x 1 m for concrete slabs 50 x 50 x 5 cm (galvanised) or for concrete slabs 45 x 45 x 5 cm (powder coated).
Type TLx: portable base 1.25 x 1.25m for concrete slabs 40 x 40 x 5 cm (galvanised)
If you have special requirements that can’t be solved with our existing products, we will be happy to recommend solutions and produce the necessary part.
