At the Fence with a Rio Brands Umbrella

Hi Neighbors!

Here is something perfect for those of you who can not take exposure to the sun.  Several people in my family burn easily, I am one of them.  So, when Rio Brands offered to allow us to review one of their 7 ft. Total Sunblock Umbrellas, we were real excited.

The Rio Brands Umbrella has some really neat features.  First it comes in two pieces and has a storage bag for carrying it with you.  The bottom of the post is designed for you to screw into the ground.  The feature I like best about this is, there are two little handles that pop out to assist you in screwing the pole into the ground.

The umbrella pole slides into the top after you have it safely anchored in place.  A small lever helps lock it in.  The you can safely open your umbrella.  Now, here is the other feature I like.  The top of the umbrella pole has a joint you can move, so that the umbrella tips and blocks sun!

This is perfect for a trip to the beach, a park, ball game, picnic or just to use in your own yard.  Rio Brands has several umbrellas to choose from, along with some other accessories.

Look at the pictures!  Isn't this perfect for quick trips!  I think we might just keep ours in the carry bag in the back of our Suburban.

This Rio Brands Umbrella is lab tested to block 99.8% of UVA and UVB rays.  I have a feeling we will be using our umbrella quite a bit.  Portable, easy to set up and a great sun block!

From Rio Brands:

Total Sun Block™

Breakthrough Technology—intense Protection from the Sun.
All Total Sun Block umbrellas and shelters have been lab tested and proven to block 99.8% of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.  Total Sun Block offers breakthrough technologies that provide advanced protection from the sun.
Protection from both UVA and UVB is very important.  The sun produces two types of invisible rays that cause skin damage: ultraviolet A(UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB).
  • UVA rays penetrate more deeply into the skin and can contribute to premature skin aging and skin cancer. We encounter UVA rays no matter what the season or time of day.
  • UVB rays damage the outer layers of skin and are the main cause of sunburn.          
Total Sun Block products shield you from the effects of both types. 

You can also find Rio Brands on their social media pages.

Have a great weekend neighbors!  See you soon, At the Fence.
