Commercial Umbrellas for Theme Parks

American Holtzkraft, headquartered in Mount Pleasant Mills, PA, is a female-owned business founded in 1985 to capitalize on the abundance of high-quality hardwood in Pennsylvania and the region’s renowned Pennsylvania Dutch craftsmanship to produce the finest market umbrellas in the industry.

Wood Umbrellas – Standard Features

We construct our wooden market umbrellas from the finest materials. They are available in octagon (a.k.a. round), square, rectangle, and decagon shapes.

  • Distinctive hardwood grains preserved by slow kiln-drying, sealings, and a slow drying of multiple finishes.
  • A full-length solid ash pole is laminated for strength and protection against warping.
  • Aluminum flush pole guard protects pole and minimizes swelling in the stand.
  • Hub is horizontally multi-laminated with Northern Ash, the hardest wood grown in the U.S., and reinforced internally with stainless steel hardware. Hub design accents strength, keeping the wood girth in all weather.
  • Multi-laminated finial provides further protection against excessive exposure to weather.
  • Flexible, durable, high-gloss finish for outdoor use.
  • Solid brass fabric-connecting brackets are sealed with clear lacquer. Solid brass grommets and screws attach the fabric. All screws are flush to protect the fabric when umbrella is closed.
  • Heavy, solid brass eye-screw and chain connect the positioning pin.
  • Stainless steel self-locking acorn nuts for permanently securing rib joints.
