Nova Giant Patio Umbrella

Commercial Grade Wind Resistant Patio Umbrella

The Nova giant patio umbrella with its up to 16' diameter is the behemoth among our center post umbrellas and has been designed mainly for the trade. Many of its details will make a huge difference in the world of business: telescopic crank system, removable crank, heavy duty fabric and canopy attachment, the choice between fixed or mobile bases, and a wind rating of 50 mph*. Plus, it is virtually maintenance free.

Nova features a commercial-grade telescopic crank system, which allows you to open and close the umbrella without having to displace people or furniture underneath. The striking 4" diameter aluminum mast with internal strength channels and reinforced aluminum ribs make up the power-house of this center pole umbrella. All aluminum parts are powder-coated to prevent corrosion with an elegant silver-matte finish.

Nova's canopy is sewn from beautiful, water-repellent 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 canvas, besides being UV protected and mold and mildew resistant, is easy to clean and has a guarantee against fading. It is attached to the ribs with reinforced grommets paired with ultra-durable woven nylon wrap. This is done to prevent the fabric tearing from the frame. Join multiple umbrellas together with Nova’s optional, removable gutter system just contact us for a quote.

With an umbrella that large in size you usually only get permanent installation options. Not with this center post umbrella. Nova can be firmly installed to any stable solid surface, but if you need more flexibilty, we also offer a heavy duty mobile base. In addition for easier handling, Nova mounts to a hinged spigot while placed on the side and is then raised to its upright position.

For those customers search for a giant 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 Nova by a licensed contractor; plus, mounting/ base options are mandatory for this giant center post umbrella.
