When you buy from Greencorner, you buy directly from the manufacturer - enjoying all the benefits of buying factory direct, starting with lower cost. Specializing in large size canopies has allowed us to develop highly cost-effective production and assembly techniques, controlling our production costs and limiting our overhead. That focus also gives us the ability to purchase components at the most advantageous prices, passing the savings along to you.
Buying direct from the manufacturer also means much faster order delivery, since we build your umbrellas at our own shipping facility. In most cases, your purchase will be ready to ship within one week of order.
Tested for years in high wind conditions, Greencorner umbrellas feature a unique outlet system and sturdy frame that perform exceptionally well in demanding weather. By enabling easy and efficient release of contained air through a large wind vent, the Greencorner design provides higher wind resistance and greater overall stability than competing products.
Properly securing your Greencorner umbrella with the appropriate base is vital to maintain optimum wind resistance under the widest variety of conditions. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is available to help you select the ideal base to match your specific environment
As the sun moves through the sky, the shade provided by a smaller round canopy moves around. Tilt mechanisms allow the umbrella to be adjusted to provide the best overall shade coverage for the time of day.
The large size and rectangular shapes of Greencorner canopies eliminate this problem entirely, so there was no need to include often fragile or needlessly complex tilt systems in our umbrella design. The result is a simpler, more reliable and more stable product.
Greencorner umbrellas offer a pulley-based lift system, making it easy for almost any adult to open and close a Greencorner market umbrella. While a crank seems convenient at first glance, our experience is that a crank lift system is usually too fragile for long term commercial use, particularly when lifting the heavier, larger and more durable umbrellas we produce. A pulley lift system is a signature trait of a true market umbrella.
Greencorner market umbrellas leave our factory fully assembled, ready to be placed into the easy-to-assemble base immediately. No further assembly or installation is required in order to enjoy your umbrella.
Quality canopy fabric is a major distinguishing factor in a good market umbrella. We purchase canvas for Greencorner umbrellas from leading manufacturers such as Sunbrella, Dickson and Sundown, firms that specialize in producing fabrics in varying grades for outdoor use.
Unlike most umbrella manufacturers, who use furniture-grade fabric as their standard, Greencorner canopies feature the finest marine and awning-grade 100% acrylic canvas, fabric created specifically for sailboats and heavy awnings. Color is added via solution-dying, a process in which dye is added during the manufacturing process to the acrylic fibers while the fibers are still in a liquid state. Experience has shown us that this process is key to locking in the color, facilitating easy cleaning and keeping your umbrella beautiful for years.
Greencorner canopies feature marine-grade fabric originally created for sailboats, guaranteed to resist fading, moisture, rot and mildew. We cover our products with a 5-year manufacturer's limited warranty to ensure that you enjoy your brightly colored Greencorner market umbrellas for many years.
Our marine-grade fabric is not waterproof; it is water repellent, treated with a highly effective fluorocarbon water repellent finish during the manufacture process. Because our fabrics are woven, they also breathe exceptionally well - drying quickly with only air exposure.
The fabrics used in Greencorner market umbrellas have been tested and proven to provide up to 98% UV protection against the sun's harmful effects, depending on depth of color (equivalent to SPF 50 protection). White and lighter colored fabrics provide less protection than darker fabrics, due to the difference in color depth. UV protection is inherent to Greencorner umbrellas, and will not be reduced by long term usage and/or fabric exposure to the sun
Yes. We have excellent warranty policies, designed to guarantee that our customers remain 100% satisfied with their purchase for many years.
Greencorner umbrellas are made from sturdy, high quality materials that provide durability and stability - but which are also heavy. Your market umbrella must be secured properly with an appropriate base for the environment in which the umbrella will be used.
For most commercial applications, or in windy conditions, we recommend our heaviest base: the B24, made of heavy steel and featuring an attractive powder-coated finish.
To minimize shipping costs, our cross-frame B33 base can be installed using 4 standard-sized pavers purchased from any home improvement store.
For a more permanent installation, we suggest the B6 - a steel sleeve with a small plate, which can be bolted directly to a deck or concrete patio.
Ask our friendly and knowledgeable staff about our base selection when you call. We will be happy to work with you to find just the right umbrella base for your needs.
