This garden umbrella is 6ft square and casts a large shadow for plenty of shade. The head room under this umbrella is 81" so that most people won't have to duck to get in to the shade. The fabric is strong and durable marine fabric that will "breath" to a little to let some heat out, and to keep your cool. Constructed with the finest Asian hardwood, these patio umbrellas are built to last throughout the summer without the fabric fading. The lifting mechanism for these garden umbrellas is designed with a 2 pulley lifting system so that almost everyone can raise and lower this sun umbrella. The pole for this sun umbrella is 1.375" in diameter and is designed to fit most standard umbrella stands. Some Assembly Required.
