This umbrella can be easily refreshed when you like since you buy the frame and canopy separately. It has a discreet handle, can be angled as needed – and it’s free-hanging, making it easy to position.

Product details

The fabric gives excellent protection against the sun’s UV rays as it has a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating of 50+, which means it blocks 98% of the ultraviolet radiation.

The color stays fresh for longer, as the fabric is fade resistant.

You open, close or tilt the umbrella by using the discreet handle.

With a light, passing rain shower, you can stay and relax under the umbrella since the canopy repels water.

It’s easy to keep the canopy clean and fresh since you can easily remove and machine wash it.

The umbrella pole is made of aluminium which means it won’t rust.

The air vent reduces wind pressure and allows heat to circulate.

The strap with buckle keeps the fabric in place when folded.

Tilt function provides protection from the sun all day long.

The dope-dyeing process reduces consumption of water and dye while improving color fastness compared to traditional dyeing techniques.

Each section of the umbrella base must be completely filled with sand. Approximately 50 lbs of sand (1.25 sand bags of 40 lb each) are needed to fill all four sections, giving a total weight of about 200 lbs.

Always fold the umbrella when not in use and never use it when it is windy.

The umbrella does not provide protection against reflected or scattered solar ultraviolet radiation.

May be completed with TOSTERÖ umbrella cover (86⅝").

Frustrating systemTink2I bought this just a couple of weeks ago and while the look is great (love this canopy) getting the thing to open has been a nightmare. So far I've not been able to get it to fully open as the mechanism seems to be jammed part way and nothing I've tried is working. It's a great idea for an umbrella pole IF it works but this one has me frustrated and exhausted. I can only assume it's defective and will have to return it, which is painful enough for something this size at the best of times let alone COVID times. I'm a long time fan of Ikea and very familiar with reading their instructions but the operating instructions for this thing are abysmal. A video would be practical. Troubleshooting tips would also be helpful since it is a different design.1
Very hard to openHealthy_EconomistI bought the Oxno umbrella about a month ago for my retired mom. Easy enough to assemble, but the umbrella is SO difficult to open - you have to push the grip so hard to get it to the very top and it was basically impossible for my mom to do it. Even my husband had trouble with it. Exchanged for another one, and it’s exactly the same. I’m very surprised that IKEA would sell something that is this hard to use, I generally find their products to be much more well designed. The second one is going back too.1

Our take on polyester

Polyester is a durable, wrinkle-resistant and easy-care material that is ideal for many home furnishing products like rugs, pillows, quilts and cushions. The downside to virgin polyester is that it is made from oil, coal or natural gas. This means that when we use virgin polyester, we are exhausting the planet’s natural resources. Our response to this, is to replace all virgin polyester with recycled in our products. In 2020, we achieved the milestone of replacing 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products and will accelerate the transformation towards the aim of only using recycled polyester throughout the product range where polyester is used.

Virgin vs recycled polyester

Originally, all polyester was made from oil-based raw materials which are not renewable but we are switching to only using recycled polyester. The good thing is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without negatively affecting the quality of our products. When we make products from recycled polyester, we give a second life to material that is not biodegradable and reduce the amount that may otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. Instead, PET and other sources of polyester are used to make textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. Recycled polyester is just as good as virgin polyester in terms of looks, quality and function, and produces about 50% less in CO2 emissions. And the material is just as clean and safe in every way.

Some challenges with recycled polyester

Recycled polyester makes us less dependent on oil. The amount we convert, is equal to the amount of virgin fossil fuel we eliminate from our polyester raw material (this excludes potential dyeing and other post recycled polyester production treatments). With some exceptions, the challenge is not the conversion of polyester into recycled itself, but to make it available to everyone by keeping it affordable. Buying low environmental impact products often comes with a higher price tag. We want to change that by working to make recycled polyester products more affordable and accessible to the many people.

Only recycled polyester

IKEA is committed to end the dependency on virgin fossil materials and only use renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We are accelerating this movement for polyester in our range and aim to replace all virgin polyester in our textile products with recycled. In 2020, IKEA replaced 79% of the virgin polyester used in IKEA textile products with recycled polyester. In volume, this means we converted 130,000 metric tonnes of recycled polyester, and saved 200,000 tonnes of virign polyester. We haven’t reached our 100% goal yet, but we have come far and overcome many obstacles on the way. These volumes make us a leader in converting to recycled polyester and we hope that our decisions can inspire and motivate whole industries to change.

Responsible sourcing

At IKEA, we demand that all recycled polyester used in IKEA products shall come from recyclers that are compliant with the Global Recycled Standard and traceability is secured to the IKEA product through requirements toward the IKEA Suppliers. By only using recycled polyester that meets the Global Recycled Standards we manage to secure social, environmental and chemical practices at the recycler’s production. We believe that the GRS standard is the best standard on the market today. We work with our partners and textile organizations such as Textile Exchange to further improve standards on recycled materials, including traceability of material beyond the recycling units.

Material

What is aluminium?

After iron, aluminium is the world's most used metal and has a very wide range of uses. It’s easy to shape and lightweight, but is still strong and durable. In our range we use it for things like kitchen utensils, curtain rods and tealight cups. A big advantage with aluminium is that it can be recycled again and again without losing its quality. Recycling consumes only a fraction of the energy required to produce aluminium from new raw materials.
