FAQ's

What is the best uv sun umbrella for me?

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 main difference between out products is that some umbrellas fold down to fit into you hang bag and others are more elegant "stick-style" parasols.  If convenience is the most important thing to you, check out our Compact Cosmopolitan sun umbrellas. If elegance is of more importance, please view our stick style sun parasols. 

The colour of the UV umbrella does not affect the UPF 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.  
I don't live in Australia, can a Sunbella be posted to me?
We ship to all countries except the US and offer competitive postage rates. View our postage rates here.
Why can't you post Sunbella products to the US?
Unfortunately we are unable to trade in the US due to a trademark issue. This is not something that we can work around due to the threat of legal action that would be taken against us. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. 


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 each parasol?
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
Where are your products made?
We spent many months designing our product here in Australia and then spent considerable time trying to find someone local to manufacture them for us. Unfortunately there were no umbrella manufacturers at all that could help us. The Small Business Development Corporation advised that we would need to take our business offshore if we wanted to bring our product to fruition.
We now work with an amazing manufacturer partner in China, who makes it possible for us to turn our designs into high-quality products. Our partner has passed ISO9001 (quality), ISO14001 (environment), BSCI (social compliance) and OHSAS18001 (Occupational Health & Safety) audits.


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 from http://www.sunsmart.com.au/tools/interactive-tools/free-sunsmart-app 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.
