To shelter and protect from the sun, to create fresh, livable and elegant outdoor living space: these are ideas behind FIM’s continuing de- velopment of their line of outdoor umbrellas, combining functionality and design. With a distribution network that covers forty countries around the world, FIM’s production is based 100% in Italy. This choice is driven by a com- pany policy that considers it essential to main- tain the company’s identity, and to promote products made in Italy by giving them added value in terms of quality, service and image. In the design and production of its umbrellas FIM merges tradition with modern technology and craftsmanship. Materials used are innova- tive and of premium quality. For the structures, premium hardwoods, stainless steel and alu- minium; For the covers, top quality acrylic fab- rics, technologically advanced, waterproof and impermeable, designed to support the ultimate outdoor life style. Available in a colour selection that includes over 30 shades, thus lending itself to any taste and style, both for private and contract cus- tomers. The umbrella is no longer simply a tool to shelter from the sun, but becomes part of the outdoor furnishings. The design is modern and linear, focused on essential, clean el- egance that adapts to any space. FIM prod- ucts are built to stand the test of time: from the standpoint of intrinsic value -the materials used, the long life of the product line-, and from the point of view of usability - durable, solid and easy to maintain. Replacement parts are available for years into the future. FIM’s in- novation and evolution are the keys to making their products user-friendly.
