Beach Umbrellas can be dangerous if not properly secured. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are over 3,000 injuries each year caused by flying beach umbrellas. Deaths, while rare, have also occurred. Anchor Works is committed to solving this problem and keeping beachgoers safe from the dangers of flying umbrellas. These preventable casualties raise concern among beachgoers everywhere and have captured the focus and attention of the beach business community, media, federal and state regulators, and local beach management authorities. Unfortunately, the heightened focus is often temporary, receding from focus until the next report of an injured beachgoer. Anchor Works is committed to making the beach safe by preventing wind-blown umbrellas and the havoc they cause. We have introduced the Anchor to secure all consumer beach umbrellas. We are also applying our patented design to secure larger umbrellas like those provided by beach rental companies as well as those used by resorts, hotels, restaurants, and other beach businesses. All beach umbrellas should be secured with an effective Anchor that prevents them from becoming wind-blown and creating a risk of bodily injury for beachgoers. To ensure improvements in beach safety, Anchor Works is working with ASTM, the leading international standards organization, setting safety and performance standards across all industries. We are working with them to develop a performance standard for beach umbrellas and a method to validate the safety performance as well.
The Anchor, our flagship product, employs a new and patented design that delivers superior stability and security for your beach umbrella allowing for a safer day at the beach. Just as common sense and logic would advise, our design creates “base weight” underneath the umbrella to counteract the forces of the wind, preventing it from becoming dislodged and wind-blown. The Anchor secures your umbrella without taking up the shaded space beneath it or creating a tripping hazard. The Anchor also provides a convenient tray to store your phone, drinks, or other items up and out of the sand. Our solution may be used with your existing umbrella or paired with our Anchor Works umbrella for our most secure solution – the Anchor Works System. Our System combines our unique Anchor with an Anchor Works Classic Beach Umbrella specially designed to work together to secure the umbrella to the Anchor preventing it from becoming dislodged from the sand. All Anchor Works products, including the Anchor Works System, are available in five matching stylish and contemporary colors
Now you can pair your beach umbrella stabilizer with our classic umbrella! Like The Anchor, it embodies our values through simple, yet intelligent design. We have carefully sourced our umbrellas to pair perfectly with our sleek and practically designed Anchor for an effortless trip to the beach.
