Blunt Windproof Umbrellas for All the Family


Well the predictions for a change in the weather last week were true and we have seen some very unsettled weather this past week, with a great deal of wind and rain throughout the UK, and it looks like this unsettled weather will continue for a while too. We took at look at some of our vented umbrellas in our blog last week, but this week I thought we would look at some of our superb windproof umbrellas available at Brolliesgalore.

The windproof umbrellas that we will be checking out in our blog today are the Blunt Windproof Umbrellas. We initially started selling these a couple of years ago and they have proven to be extremely popular with our customers. The Blunt company was founded in 1999 to create a new umbrella that was less of a threat to the eyes of taller people (the number of umbrella spoke poking incidents is quite high during rain storms!) However, the founder of Blunt also noticed that his new 'blunt' design also gave the canopy extra strength. So he took the design further, developing a newly engineered frame to create the most windproof umbrella possible by the use of double struts and telescopic floating ribs. All the tension in the umbrella is distributed right to the edges of the umbrella canopy, where strength is needed most. Overall this creates an unflappable and aerodynamic canopy that can resist winds up to 117 km/h. A superb feat of umbrella engineering.

We currently have Blunt Umbrellas available in 3 different sizes: We have the Blunt XL Golf Umbrella, The Standard Blunt Umbrella and the compact Blunt XS Metro Folding Umbrella. With a variety of colours available, why not treat all the family to a Blunt this year and you will all be able to step out on those wet and windy Autumn days with confidence!
