Frankford uses 9 oz. marine grade, 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabric that is manufactured with the highest quality raw materials, and undergoes rigorous quality-assurance tests. All of our Grade A marine grade fabrics have an outer surface finish, and are treated with the Infinity Process which makes the fabric waterproof. They are easy to clean, mold and mildew resistant, and have an exceptional (and unmatched) guarantee against fading.
Our Grade A fabrics consist of 25 vivid colors (19 solid and 6 stripe options) that are stocked for faster lead times.
Grade A+ includes any customization to Grade A fabrics (i.e. alternating panels, adding valances, custom wind vent color, custom binding or trim color, logos/silk screen, etc.).
Grades B-F include all non-stock Sunbrella® and Outdura fabrics, and carry an extended lead time. Any Grade B-F striped fabric must be ordered in even quantities, with a minimum order requirement of (2) umbrellas.
