California Umbrella 9 ft. Oceanside Series Patio Umbrella With Black Fiberglass Pole
This EFFO908 from California Umbrella is quite simply the most innovative design for the future of commercial grade umbrellas. It is the all fiberglass version of the classic market style. Since this entire frame is made of high durable fiberglass, it makes this the most weather resistant frame on the market. The traditional 9 foot canopy is tailor made for outdoor dining and provides excellent coverage and substantial shade. This umbrella also features Sunbrella fabrics, which are built on a foundation of solution-dyed acrylic yarn, the most resilient and solid material for prolonged sun exposure, to offer even longer color retention rating than competing material sources.

Frequently asked questions
The pole diameter is 1.5”, which is standard for most patio umbrellas and compatible with most bases and patio tables designed for use with patio umbrellas.
The measurement used to denote an umbrella refers to the open canopy diameter rather than the height of the umbrella.
The base size for your umbrella is best determined by the size of your umbrella as well as whether the umbrella will be in a free-standing configuration or used in a patio table.
If the umbrella is being used in a table, it should also be used in conjunction with a base of a suitable weight to provide stability against wind.
Although a protective cover is not necessary, covering the umbrella when not in use helps reduce fading of the umbrella, prevents striping fade patterns that can be caused by leaving the umbrella closed but uncovered in the sun, and minimizes the exposure of the umbrella ribs and components to elements and adverse weather.
Although our umbrellas are water-resistant, none of our umbrellas are waterproof, as our umbrellas are designed primarily for shade purposes. We recommend your umbrella be closed and stored in adverse weather to prevent the umbrella from sustaining damage.
All our commercial grade umbrellas are designed for the rigors of commercial use. They feature reinforced parts, and do not have crank or tilt mechanisms. Our commercial umbrellas have commercial frame warranties that range from one to three years. In contrast, most of our residential umbrellas have crank and tilt mechanisms. While these parts allow for ease of used, they can be misused and tend to fail first with long term use. If a residential grade umbrella is used for commercial purposes, then our warranty is reduced to 90 days.
The price of the color corresponds with the fabric type, so when comparing two colors of different fabric grades, there is a price difference reflected between selections.
Our umbrella canopies are offered in Olefin, Pacifica, and Sunbrella fabrics, which are described more in depth below.
Olefin fabrics are made with high durability synthetic Olefin fibers that offer improved fade resistance over lesser grade fabric materials like polyester and cotton. This fabric’s color selections match up perfectly with all the most popular colors on the market without breaking the budget. Olefin fabrics are available in 20 fashionable and popular color choices and offer a 1-year fade resistance warranty.
A new fabric designed by California Umbrella, Pacifica is a solution-dyed polyester fabric that has been perfected for the use with our quality made umbrellas. The proprietary selection offers tremendous possibilities with 20 color variations and performance shade fabrics that offer a 4-year fade resistance and 4 year rot and mildew warranty.
Sunbrella fabrics have been a consumer recognized symbol of performance and have defined the industry standard for decades. These fabrics are built on a foundation of solution-dyed acrylic yarn, the most resilient and solid material for prolonged sun exposure, to offer even longer color retention rating than competing material sources. These high-end and uniquely designed products also come with a 5-year color retention and corrosion resistance warranty.
The height of our umbrellas is not adjustable unless stated otherwise in the product features and description.
Spreading the ribs of the umbrella prior to opening can loosen these ribs and allow the umbrella to be more easily pushed open. Using a stepstool can be helpful as well if the umbrella is difficult to operate due to height. We also offer crank open and pulley open umbrellas that are easier to open for people who have difficulty opening the push open models.
An auto-tilt umbrella can be tilted by continuing to crank the umbrella after the canopy has already been cranked open.
The collar tilt mechanism refers to the striped collar located right above the main crank handle on the umbrella. This collar can be twisted to tilt the umbrella. There is also a video tutorial available here.
Push tilt umbrellas are equipped with a push button on the upper region of the frame, near the ribs and canopy. When this button is depressed, the upper portion of the frame with the canopy can be simultaneously pushed to the desired direction of tilt.
We recommend spot cleaning any of our canopies with mild soap or detergent and a soft bristle brush before allowing to air dry. Our Pacifica and Sunbrella canopies can also be machine washed on cold settings only before air drying. Canopies should be air dried only regardless of fabric type. We advise against machine drying or power washing canopies as this may compromise the fabric strength.
We recommend closing the canopy when not in use to prevent damage due to adverse weather.
We recommend keeping the original box for storage purposes, as well as storing the umbrella where it is safe from the elements and wildlife. If the canopy is cleaned or otherwise exposed to moisture, it should be completely dry before storing to prevent mildew.
Each of the four crossbars measures 29” in length.
