Umbrella Care and Maintenance

Proper care and maintenance is required to extend the life of all Frankford products. Please ensure that all Frankford umbrellas are properly weighted down in an umbrella base before putting them into use. Please contact us for assistance in choosing the proper weight and size of the appropriate base. When opening a Frankford Umbrella, separate each rib at least 4 – 6 inches from the center pole, before attempting to raise the umbrella. Do not attempt to force the umbrella open if it does not open easily. Please exercise common sense and caution during extreme wind and weather conditions, and close the umbrella in any winds exceeding 25 MPH. Please clean all Frankford Umbrellas and umbrella bases with fresh water once a week to ensure a good long lasting appearance, and to prevent premature rusting, and touch up frames and bases as needed when scratches occur during heavy usage.
