Riviera Wind Tunnel Testing
To show the strength and stability of this wind resistant cantilever umbrella we put it to the test.
Shade7 installed the Riviera in the largest wind tunnel in NZ based at the University of Auckland. The umbrella withstood the maximum possible wind speed of the tunnel at that size which was 40kph.
Some businesses make exaggerated claims about what wind speed their umbrella is “engineered” for.
