Wind Stable Umbrellas Pty Ltd (WSU) trading as Finbrella contracts the manufacture of its Finbrella range specifying in detail the use of the highest quality materials of construction and workmanship. We are confident that our extensive development and testing efforts have resulted in a product range that will provide years of enhanced outdoor enjoyment. The warranty protection described below covers manufacturing defects only.
The warranty does not cover situations including:
- Loss or damage caused by factors beyond WSU’s control including fair wear and tear.
- Any Finbrella that has not been installed and maintained according to the maintenance or care instructions and the set-up instructions.
- Any alterations or repairs to the Finbrella not performed by WSU or performed without WSU prior written consent.
- Damage or defects caused to the Finbrella caused by impact or abrasive forces resulting from contact with the ground or other foreign objects.
- Damage or defects caused to the Finbrella caused by unusual, non-recommended or negligent use.
- Damage caused by wind forces in excess of recommended or specified maxima or damage by other environmental factors.
- Canopy damaged caused by “pinching” of the fabric by the Finbrella framework.
The selected materials of construction make Finbrellas ideally suited for poolside and coastal environments. However, customers should observe the simple care and maintenance instructions to ensure the longest possible durability of the product. The robust construction specifications have shown that Finbrellas can, under test conditions, withstand winds well in excess of 40 kph where the centre pole is securely fixed to the ground in a vertical position. WSU does not recommend less warrant the use of Finbrellas in wind speeds exceeding 35 kph (20 knots). In general, WSU strongly recommends that your Finbrella be strapped closed and or covered when not in use.
