THE DOPPLER STANDARD
Our contribution for tomorrow
As a leading umbrella manufacturer, doppler stands for innovation, quality and product diversity – always from the point of view of sustainability. A responsible relationship to people and the environment is a personal concern for the company. The declared “doppler standard” is based on three essential pillars.
Highest quality standards
Extended manufacturer's warranty
Repair and spare parts service
Active climate protection measures
Eco-certifications (FSC, Oeko-Tex)
Cherishing corporate culture
Social standards (amfori BSCI certification)
Commitment to employees and society
Products that are manufactured by doppler are distinguished by their high quality.
Whether parasols or umbrellas, seat pads or garden furniture – the high quality of the doppler products can be relied on. The decisive factor for this is the use of first-class materials as well as comprehensive quality management. Before their introduction, doppler products are subjected to rigorous tests, for example, umbrellas are tested in the wind tunnel or fabrics are tested for their fade resistance. The three-year warranty speaks volumes and reflects the company's high level of confidence in its products. If, nevertheless, something should break, most problems can be rectified by trained specialist personnel of the in-house repair and spare part service.
Extensive tests of all products, such as wind tunnel tests and testing the fabrics for lightfastness.
doppler offers a 3-year guarantee on all of its products - even 5 years on products from the Superstrong and Carbonsteel umbrella series.
In-house repair and spare parts service enables the repair of damages, even years after the product was purchased.
Doppler takes numerous steps to contribute to greater sustainability in the manufacture of its products.
Work is currently underway to reduce plastic packaging – with the aim of completely eliminating packaging of this kind in the long term. In the 2020/21 season, doppler was able to save 3.5 tonnes of plastic packaging. The vast majority of all articles that leave doppler are tested in accordance with TÜV, Ökotex or REACH standards or have an FSC certificate. If plastics are used, they are tested in advance for pollutants. The repair service can prevent new purchases and, as a result, waste. From 2021, the company headquarters in Braunau will also cover more than 50 percent of its energy needs by means of a photovoltaic system.
IN-HOUSE REPAIR SERVICE
Due to the doppler repair and spare parts service, a large number of items can be repaired in the company's own workshop - this is our contribution to a longer life of the products and an effort to oppose the throwaway society.

As a traditional company and important regional employer, doppler is aware of its social responsibility.
Its employees can rely on a secure job with attractive prospects and enjoy social benefits, amenities and support, for example in the form of funded training courses. In the family-run generation business, the collegial cohesion in everyday work can be felt. Doppler also recognises its obligation to society and relies as much as possible on cooperation with regional suppliers.
