FAQ's

Does the colour of the UV umbrella / UV parasol affect it’s performance?  / Do all sun umbrella colours have the same UV / UPF rating?  / Do some colours protect better than others?

Sunbella UV Umbrellas and UV Parasols are all rated UPF50+, meaning they block at least 98% of UV rays. This is the highest UPF rating available. 
The colour of the UV umbrella does not affect this rating. This is because we have achieved the UPF50+ rating by using a tight weave fabric, that has then been further enhanced with a UV blocker, to effectively block these harmful rays.  

Why should I use a UV umbrella / UV parasol? I already have a rain umbrella, can’t I just use that?
A standard rain umbrella, made from regular black pongee fabric has a UPF rating of just UPF15. Your uv umbrella / uv parasol should specify on the tag that it has a UPF50+ rating to ensure that the maximum % of UV rays are blocked.

What are the dimensions of the Duchess/Kimberley/City/Coast?
A rain umbrella needs to be large, to protect you from rain that can come from all angles, however that makes them difficult to carry, particularly though crowded streets.

A sun umbrella, however, can be angled to effectively protect you from the sun, depending on which direction the sun is coming from.   Sunbella sun umbrellas are the perfect size, to provide effective sun protection whilst also being unobtrusive in a crowd.

Where can I buy the Sunbella or see it in person?
You can buy Sunbellas online here, and we also have several retailers across Australia. 

How far in advance do I need to book the hire packages?
We always book out between October and February, so we recommend that you contact us as soon as possible. However, there have been occasions where panicked brides have contacted us a few days before their wedding and we've been able to help, so please don't hesitate to contact us at sales@sunbella.com.au or 0402772249

What else can I do to protect myself from the sun?
Aim to minimise sun exposure, particularly between 9am and 4pm. Download the SunSmart App here to keep an eye on the UV levels. If you do go out in the sun, wear tight-weave clothing to stop UVR from penetrating the fabric. Wear sun screen, a hat, and don’t forget to protect your eyes with wraparound sunglasses. And keep your Sunbella handy.
