A weight off your mind?

“How many weight bags will I need for my umbrella?”
We cant make that decision for you. We can give you recommendations but ultimately its the customers decision.
“How am I suppose to know how much weight I need?

Covered in Vinyl

We are still rocketing through our busy Christmas/Summer season!
Its six months of relentless ‘all-hands-on-deck’. Hundreds upon hundreds of cafe barriers, market umbrellas and accessories are being pumped out. No two jobs are the same. Every job is unique with its own custom colours and custom printed artwork.

Most of the time Awnet’s market umbrellas have acrylic canvas tops, but here’s one from this week with a digitally printed vinyl cover.


Ausbrella – The Movie

Well, not quite a movie, but its a fantastic video that runs for less than two minutes in which time you will learn all about Ausbrellas design and engineering strengths, its wind tunnel tests and, most importantly, the dangers of cheap market umbrellas.

The video is great! I guarantee you’ll watch it more than once. We had a lot of fun making it and Im sure youll enjoy watching it.

So three simple tests:

1. Tug of war
2. Hang test
3. Tie it to a car….. (And drive) Continue reading Ausbrella Testing

The original La Porchetta, Carlton, North of Melbourne have existing cafe barriers there, however it needed a fresh new look.20140428_120254

Simple black style 3 cafe barriers with the “La Porchetta” print would suit. So we did it!20140717_085545
