Eclipse is the workhorse among cantilever umbrellas and performs exceptionally in commercial and residential settings. Available standard in 13' octagonal/round or 10' square, it offers full 360° rotation and the Infinity Tilt system. The latter allows for myriad tilt angles to be shaded from the sun regardless of its position in the sky.
Several features increase the strength and durability of Eclipse. The mast is made from corrosion-resistant, marine-grade aluminum with an elegant silver matte finish. Eclipse'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.
The canopy, besides being UV-protected and mold and mildew-resistant, is easy to clean and has a guarantee against fading. Additionally, Eclipse is equipped with wind stabilizer bars, which brace ribs with the center mast for additional stability in windier 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 Eclipse the ultimate choice for outdoor living, e.g. its smooth and easy crank lift, a commercial tilt locking 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 commercial tilt locks into place in one of three positions for easy handling. Every Eclipse cantilever umbrella 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 looking 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.
