Wind Ratings

Wind ratings do NOT form part of, nor fall under, any Frankford Umbrellas’ warranties. Wind ratings are intended as a guide to the relative strength of the umbrellas only and tested at their optimal positions. Umbrellas with any degree of tilt added should not follow the above wind ratings. Wind can be extremely variable, depending on the surroundings, elevation, angle of gusts, etc. In any high wind or sudden extreme weather conditions, ALL umbrellas should be closed and secured immediately.

 

Frankford can recommend specific bases and anchoring systems for specific umbrella types. However, these are only recommended weights, as different environments may require different base options.

 

Please contact us for assistance in choosing the proper umbrella base or anchoring system. In the event Frankford shade products are left open and/or unattended in harsh weather conditions, our customer service department is here to help you and promptly assist with parts for repairs. Our shade products offer modular, self-repairable components which allow customers to service the umbrellas to keep them in perfect working condition.
