BLUNT UMBRELLAS - ARE THEY WORTH IT?

Michael Tsesmetzis
07 Dec , 2022

Immediately recognisable thanks to its distinctive, original, and trademarked BLUNT™ shape, the BLUNT™ Umbrella is appropriately considered a revolutionary design and one of the superior umbrellas available on the market. BLUNT™ umbrellas are the only umbrella on the market with a fully tensioned canopy for unmatched performance.

 

BLUNT™ recognized numerous fundamental issues with the common umbrella and understood that these needed to be addressed with a better-quality build and intelligent design.

 

They acknowledged that traditional umbrella’s pointed prongs could be a safety concern, and that the flimsy, dated design in addition to the overall use of poor-quality materials contributed to frequent disposal.

 

Remodeling and reconsidering these mechanisms has led to several BLUNT™ Umbrellas in a much-admired collection.

 

Design

The BLUNT™ umbrellas strength comes from the simplicity in its design. By using their materials in a smarter way, BLUNT™ takes advantage their mechanical property potential, making every component do at least two jobs. BLUNT™ strive to make their umbrellas as much a fashion accessory as a high performing product. With their unique trademarked style and shape, plus a pop of colour, a BLUNT™ umbrella will ensure you stand out no matter the weather.

BLUNT’s patented tips open like mini umbrellas inside custom pockets at the canopy edge. This serves several purposes such as transferring the radial force evenly into the canopy which forms a premium configuration and aerodynamic surface for ultimate performance.

The point loading at the rib end of traditional umbrellas is where they typically fail; the BLUNT™ tips reinforce this area eliminating the weakness.

The BLUNT™’s frame components are created from materials purposely selected to endure a full range of forces applied during use. The frames are built to take additional stress and tension off the ribs, creating a stronger umbrella overall.

 

Repair, not replace.


BLUNT™ believes that the traditional umbrella is a mass-produced product built to fail. They noticed that after a storm the streets were often littered with cheap umbrellas that had not stood the test of time. The company believes in sustainability and pledged to do something about it - build umbrellas designed to last.

BLUNT™ Umbrellas are intended to be completely repaired if needed and not replaced. This means if something goes wrong, you won't have to throw away your umbrella. Therefore, at Umbrellas Direct Australia, we back this up with a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty. For all warranty claims, please visit: https://bluntumbrella.com.au/pages/warranty.

 

Care Tips

Your new BLUNT™
When you first purchase your new BLUNT™, leave it open overnight to ease the opening process.

Opening your BLUNT™
Occasionally wipe the shaft clean and rub a very light layer of petroleum jelly, or 'Vaseline' on it to preserve that easy-open action.

Drying your BLUNT™
To avoid mildew or water stains from forming on your umbrella, make sure to dry your BLUNT™ completely. The best way to do this is to leave your umbrella fully open, otherwise you can leave it standing up with the canopy tie released.

Storing your BLUNT™
Ensure you always store your BLUNT™ umbrella in its sleeve to maximise its lifespan. This will assist in protecting the umbrella from any sun damage or wear and tear.

The BLUNT™ tips
If one of your BLUNT™ Tips become detached by mistake, you can just gently push it back into place.

Cleaning your BLUNT™
Please note that BLUNT™ Umbrellas are not machine washable. When cleaning your umbrella avoid using harsh chemical detergents and bristle brushes. Instead, when cleaning your canopy use a clean cloth and warm water to clear any marks.
