This hot-dip galvanized steel foot keeps the small and medium Inumbrina shade steady on the ground. The foot consists of two 25-kg plates that will keep your shade safe and secure. Made out of galvanized steel, the foot resists all outdoor elements but is also suited for indoor use. When using Inumbrina as a freestanding shade, we recommend the heavy-duty base; combined with a table, the standard base does the trick.
Galvanization is the most durable method for protecting metal from rusting. The metal is immersed in a zinc bath, which results in a protective layer. If the layer gets damaged, the metal under it will start rusting. However, any damage can be touched up with zinc paint available from any DIY store. Galvanized steel has a very long life span and is perfectly recyclable if necessary.
We call it the George Clooney of coating techniques: its looks improve better with age... Our tools with galvanized surfaces are masters of camouflaging dirt, thanks to the material's rough texture. At first, galvanized pieces look very shiny, but they will gradually turn matte under the influence of sun and rain. Rain may also cause dark stains underneath the connection zones.

For some products we combine different high quality types of stainless steel. Aggressive environmental conditions caused by chlorides, acid rain, salt and other rusty materials will require periodic maintenance.
We advise regular treatment with stainless steel cleaner or protector, especially in aggressive environments. Products to clean and protect are widely available.
