Aurora Cantilever Umbrella
Modern Durable Cantilever
Aurora is a premium cantilever patio umbrella that has been designed for commercial use but with keeping homeowners in mind. It is slightly smaller and lighter than our Eclipse Cantilever 11' octagonal or 9' square but it comes with the same exceptional properties such as 360° rotation and in addition, an infinity tilt for maximizing protection from the sun and light rain without a traditional center post.
Several features increase the strength, durability and enjoyment of Aurora. The mast is made from corrosion resistant, marine-grade aluminum with an elegant silver matte finish. Aurora's canopy is sewn from beautiful 9 oz. marine-grade, solution-dyed acrylic fiber instead of the market's standard of only 8 oz., which often tends to stretch over time and sag. You may choose from 18 fresh solid colors and six playful striped fabrics. The canopy, besides being UV protected and mold and mildew resistant, is easy to clean and has a guarantee against fading. Additionally, Aurora is equipped with wind stabilizer bars, which brace ribs with the center mast for additional stability in low to moderate wind conditions*. The canvas is attached to the ribs with a grommet and pin system. This helps spread the canopy tension over a larger area while reducing the chance of the fabric tearing.
There are other standard features that make Aurora unique and your choice for the outdoors, e.g. a smooth crank lift, infinity tilt system, extruded aluminum mast and joints, single vent and a protective cover. The crank is removable, which our commercial customers or families with kids will appreciate. The infinity tilt system allows you to change positions effortlessly. Aurora's 9oz. fabric comes with a 10 year warranty for more warranty details, click on our Specifications tab. Every Aurora cantilever is delivered with a black polyester protective cover (free) or you may upgrade to a 9 oz. acrylic cover in matching color (upcharge).
For those customers searching for a patio umbrella with lights, you may order the optional, rechargeable LED light bars. Two or three should be sufficient for ambient lighting whereas one attached to every other rib will give you lots of light.
A note for commercial clients: Frankford umbrella components are designed to stand up to daily wear and tear over a period of years. Metal hardware and parts are constructed out of stainless steel. Components are largely user-replaceable, substantially lengthening the life of umbrellas (typically 4-6 years of heavy usage) as failed components can be swapped out instead of replacing the entire umbrella. For instance, on Frankford’s Monterey models, the stainless steel commercial grade crank mechanism is designed to withstand 1,500 cranks up and down versus 300-500 cranks for a typical residential grade umbrella.
For warrantee reasons, we recommend professional installation of Aurora by a licensed contractor; plus, mounting/ base options are mandatory for this cantilever umbrella.
If Aurora's canopy is not quite large enough to satisfy your shade needs, please have a look at our biggest cantilever umbrella, Eclipse Cantilever.
