Compare Baser with traditional options

Your choices affect both your outdoor experience and our planet. This comparison can help you learn what to look for when buying a parasol base.

Baser parasol base

VS

Granite parasol base

Setup

Baser - patented click system

Our design keeps a tight grip on any parasol in any wind conditions, bar a tornado.

Traditional - simple screw

Usually equipped with a plastic handle, this screw will loosen over time, letting your parasol fall when you least expect it.

Stability

Baser - sandbag

The flex of the sand has three benefits – it’s easier to position, it allows the base to absorb wind force better, and it’s less likely to hurt your toes if you bump into it.

Traditional - concrete

Heavy rock is stable, but it’s harder to position and much more painful to kick accidentally. It may also rock in high winds.

Ergonomics

Baser - pick up and go

Even one of your kids can scoop up the sandbag and place it wherever you like

Traditional - drag or push

Be careful with your back when moving these bases. You run the risk of scraping your terrace too.

Sustainability

Baser - green design

Recycled materials, solar/wind-powered production, repair and recycle – we do our best to reduce our impact on the world.

Traditional - who knows?

In your research, which companies are transparent and earth-friendly in their production? And does your recycling station accept plastic-wrapped concrete?

CO2 Emissions

Baser – low impact

You can buy sand nearly anywhere, so from our production site to your front door, we expend a total of 0.2 kg of CO2 to deliver your purchase.

Traditional - high impact

Transporting 30 kg of concrete from China by ship and truck makes one product responsible for at least 2.5 kg of CO2.

I have been missing this parasol base for the last 10 years as a homeowner. Simple and stylish. An old and useless concrete base can be picked up at the recycling station :-)

I was looking for something for my parasols that I could actually move around on myself (without a man nearby). I can only recommend others to buy here.

"Baser is simply remarkable with its cantilever base. It's a genius design that adds an element of simplicity to my life. Choosing Baser is a no-brainer. It outshines all the other options effortlessly, leaving no room for competition. I rate Baser a solid 5 stars!"

Før havde jeg en plastik parasolfod, men jeg er så glad for min Baser. Den ligger perfekt og virker upåklageligt. Andre bør helt klart vælge Baser, da den ikke kun fungerer godt, men også ser pæn ud. Jeg giver den 5 stjerner!

At first, I thought it was an expensive parasol base, but the screws on my regular base are helplessly rusted after 2 seasons. This base never rusts and the parasol is really firmly in place.

Baser vs concrete or granite

Baser the most sustainable choice of shade and base

We began as a family business and rooted on those values we strive to become the worlds most sustainable choice of parasol and parasol bases – it is ambitious but with your help we know we can get there. From materials to where we produce or how we delivery to you we consider the effect on our planet earth.

Made in Denmark

Baser have from the very start chosen to manufacture in Denmark instead of the far east – this have given us more control but also saved 27,854 kg CO2 in transport as we don’t transport 50 kg granite umbrella bases 20.000 km from China to Europe. Our production in Denmark is 100% windpowered materials and our fabric supplier in Spain who makes our durable outdoor fabric for our sandbags uses energy from 100% renewable sources (30% of that is from their own solar panels)

Sustainable materials

Materials have a huge impact in how sustainable a product is we therefore from the start made the choice to produce our parasol stand and parasol in recycled ocean plastics and industrial waste – this means that when you have a Baser parasol base on your patio you have been part of transforming 2 kg of ocean plastic into a new product.

100% recyclable

We produce our products so they last for years, however, nothing in this world will last forever and for that reason we made our products so they can be 100% recycled and reused either in our production or at your local recycling station. Our recycling portal lets you send your used Baser parasol base or parasol back to us, we then recycle and reuse it in our production, and you receive a voucher on 10% that makes sure we reuse our materials on and on.
