Frankford’s umbrellas are all thoroughly tested and built to ensure durability and longevity, however we do not recommend the use of any non-permanent umbrella in unsafe wind conditions. The size and installation location of your umbrella play a significant role when selecting the base/anchoring method required for safe operation. Please consult an authorized Frankford Umbrellas dealer or factory representative directly for recommendations.

Frankford Umbrellas warranty is only applicable to products that are properly secured to an appropriately weighted base, installed inground, or surface mount. The warranty does not cover damage caused to an umbrella structure or base as a result of improper anchoring, or severe acts of nature, including any damage caused by contact with a foreign object (this includes contact with the ground).

DISCLAIMER: Umbrellas must be secured equal to or greater than the base options recommended in this catalog, and must be secured properly using the thumb screws or other hardware supplied with each base. Failure to properly secure umbrellas with the base options recommended, and with the supplied hardware will void the Frankford Umbrellas warranty. Furthermore, all umbrellas should always be closed and secured when not in use, and taken down when winds reach unsafe conditions.
