Find the best parasol base for you
Your parasol should be easy to move, set up and take down so you can have shade wherever and whenever you want it, right? To keep your shade stable, you need a good base, and if you live in a windy area you need a heavy base to keep your canopy from flying away or spinning like a bike wheel.
The Baser parasol base (with sandbags) comes in three versions to fit any garden, terrace or balcony:
1) The Original fits medium to large parasols, perfect for spacious gardens.
2) The Compact is a good choice for small to medium gardens. It works great for parasols up to 2.8 metres, whether you use it with a table or not.
3) The Spacesaver helps you out on small balconies or close to tables, chairs, walls or rails. You can use it on parasols between 2.1 and 3 metres.
What to look for when buying a base
When it comes to picking the best parasol base, consider the following:
Stability – Your base must keep your parasol secure. We recommend a 50-kg base for a 3- to 3.3-metre parasol and a 30-kg base for a 2.8-metre parasol. If you need additional weight, our sandbags work great for extra stability.
Portability – You may need a heavy base, but how will you move it? You can get a base with wheels, but that only works if you have even surfaces from one spot to the next. You can also get a parasol base with sandbags, which will make it so easy to move that even your kids can do it.
Material – If you want your shade to last for years, you need to carefully consider what it’s made of. A rust-free parasol base, or at least one that offers rust-free, low-maintenance surfaces, will serve you best.
Pole diameter – Your parasol has to fit snugly into the base so that it stands tall and still even on gusty days. Most parasols have diameters of anywhere from 20 to 56 millimetres.
Heavy-duty bases for large parasols
The Baser Original has a patented locking system to keep your parasol exactly where you put it. The durable outdoor sandbags weigh down the base for maximum stability, even without a table. By separating the base and weight, you get more portability in less space than from a base with wheels.
Say goodbye to rusty, unstable base tubes!
Rust and loose screws can turn your canopy into the Leaning Tower of Pisa, so we developed and patented a system that uses no tubes or screws. The moulded fibreglass and strong outdoor fabric creates a rust-free, maintenance-free, long-lasting product.
How heavy should my parasol base be?
Getting the weight of your parasol base right is crucial for stability. If your parasol has a tilt function, then you need more weight than you may think to keep your canopy from becoming a sail.
To find the right weight for your base, you need to know the size of your parasol. We recommend a 50-kg base for a 3.3-metre parasol, 40 kg for 3 metres and 30 for 2.7.
Is there a universal parasol base?
Parasol sizes vary from 1.2 to 4 metres, so bases also vary, from 10 to 200 kg. The closest you can get to a universal parasol base is one that fits poles between 28-58 mm, such as the Baser base.
The best parasol base for a balcony
Baser’s Spacesaver is a flexible base that offers great stability and fits into small spaces, so you can place it along rails, close to walls or in corners.
Where can you buy a parasol base right now?
You can go to your local big-box store to find a parasol base near you. Otherwise, most online stores offer delivery within 2 days directly to your doorstep or a pickup point. At Baser, we offer xx-day delivery so you can buy a parasol that will look good and last for years.
Earth-friendly parasol bases with sandbags
We use 100% renewable energy (wind power) and 100% recycled plastic (RavamidECO) to build our products locally (in Denmark). Your purchase of a base will include two of our sandbags, made from 190-g solution-dyed olefin fabric with a Teflon coating to keep them looking good through the seasons.
