How Many People Fit Under a 6' to 7' Beach Umbrella?
Average beach umbrellas are 6-7 feet and are usually big enough for 2 people to fit comfortably in the shade while seated. For total coverage in a lounge chair, choose at least a 7 foot beach umbrella.
Keep in mind, beach umbrellas are not measured by their height. They are measured by the size of the curved canopy part of the beach umbrella. A 6-7 foot beach umbrella has less material, which in turn makes them lighter. 6-7 foot umbrellas are smaller beach umbrellas and usually weigh between 4-7 lbs.
Most of the 6-7 foot umbrella poles are 1.25 inches in diameter and fit into the sand grabber, umbrella mounts and stakes that accommodate pole diameters ranging from 1.37" to 1.5 inches. You also have the choice of buying a beach umbrella with a built-in anchor. Umbrellas with built-in anchors have bottom poles that look like corkscrews and usually have handles to help you dig and twist the pole into the sand. Our Built-in Anchor Guide provides more details and tips to help you decide if you should purchase a beach umbrella built-in anchor.
Many beach umbrellas come with a carrying case,
but the types of carry bags differ. On beachstore.com website, we usually show a
photo of the umbrella carry bag that comes with the umbrella. You can
always buy an extra beach umbrella bag if
you are looking for something specific.
Commercial umbrellas may not come with a carry case because those heavy-duty umbrellas require a special bag that can provide justice to such an elegant and high-end product. Leading manufacturer of commercial-grade umbrellas Frankford offers aheavy-duty umbrella carry bag.
