Outdoor Patio with Green Chaise lounge and white umbrellafaq: what type of sunbrella fabric should be used for patio umbrellas?

Sunbrella's upholstery-grade fabric is recommended for patio umbrellas. These 54" wide fabrics provide the best ease-of-application and performance for this use. 

FAQ: WHAT is the difference between sunbrella's upholstery fabrics and shade/awning fabrics?

All Sunbrella fabrics are UV, water, mildew and stain resistant due to their solution-dyed fiber construction. There are key differences between the two product types that make them well-suited for the desired application, but not interchangeable.

Absolutely! Sunbrella fabrics are built to withstand the tough conditions of outdoor applications, yet beautifully designed with comfort in mind for use indoors.
