The Next Century Collection is the most durable umbrella ever constructed. It is designed to withstand damage from wind, water and sun. A distinguishing feature of this collection is the use of non-corrosive, sand cast brass hubs. Lined to prevent pole abrasion, they are guaranteed against breakage for 15 years. The sun fast textile canopy is triple reinforced stitched at stress points and is often specified for high wind and heavy-use commercial installations.
