The 10 pole windbreak has the ability to form a large semi circle making it perfect for large families/gatherings.

We advise getting help when setting the 10 pole windbreak up as it can be abit of handful for an individual!

Windbreak Buying Guide
With so many different styles and designs of windbreaks on the market, choosing a windbreak that suits your needs isnt easy. So what makes a good windbreak? As most know, the job of a windbreak is to sheild the wind from a chosen area. We have highlighted some key features to look for when purchasing a windbreak.
- Buy the right size - Have a think or measure the area you want the windbreak to cover. Windbreaks can range in height and length and the general rule is a windbreak with a larger number of poles tends to be a larger windbreak.
- When purchasing a windbreak, try to find one that comes with a carry case. Not only does it make life easier when carrying but also acts as a protection layer, helping to preserve the windbreaks life.
- Depending on your needs, some windbreaks are designed to add privacy, these are generally a little bit taller than the standard windbreaks. On the flip side to that, we also offer windbreaks that have transparent window panels, giving you shelter whilst not effecting your view.
- Windbreaks vary in the strength of wind they can handle. If your planning on using your windbreak in high winds then it worth your while spending abit more on a windbreak designed to deal with higher wind speeds. For example we wouldn't recommend using an £8.99 beach windbreak in high speed winds over a long period of time. You should look at windbreaks with re-inforced poles and guylines to add strength and stability.
