A parasol that combines a 100% shade ratio fabric and an automatic opening and closing frame.
A sense of size that can be used by tall people.It can also be used as an umbrella.
It is more common to carry a parasol during the season when UV rays become stronger.
The parasol to carry is high in shading rate, and a light and durable product is required.
Because the fabric gets thicker as the light blocking rate becomes higher, the umbrella frame that supports the fabric also needs to be strong, and the disadvantage is that it becomes heavier overall.
In particular, the parasol of "100% light blocking rate" is thick and inconvenient to carry.
"HEAT BLOCK" has developed a completely light-shielding fabric that is light and lightly modified while maintaining the material specs of 100% light shielding ratio.
By making the fabric thin and light, it is possible to reduce the weight of the umbrella frame, and it was combined with the automatic opening and closing frame.
It is the lightest class in the world as an automatic opening / closing parasol using a 100% light blocking rate fabric.
"HEAT BLOCK" has a two-layer structure in which a light shielding film is bonded to the back of the fabric.
This two-layer structure achieves 100% shading.
As long as the fabric is not torn, its shading effect is semipermanent.
Regarding the light shielding performance, 100% of the light shielding has been confirmed by the inspection of the light shielding property by a third party inspection organization.
The inspection method is a device that evaluates the light shielding property of curtains, etc., and is implemented in accordance with JIS-L-1055 A method (equivalent to 100,000lux illuminance summer sunlight).
Inspection of shading rate is performed only with umbrella fabric. Inspection can not be performed on finished products that have been sewn.
There are sewing parts in the finished product, and light may leak from seams and so on.
It has been confirmed that UV shielding rate is 99.9% (maximum value) by UV measurement inspection by a third party inspection organization.
The measurement wavelength is 280mm-400mm, using a band pass filter.
The fabric could be improved thin and light by weaving with thin thread.
The thickness of the yarn used in general umbrellas is 75 denier, but the fabric used for "HEAT BLOCK" is 15 denier, the same level as the thinness of the yarn used in stockings.
"HEAT BLOCK" also supports rain. The fabric is water repellent so it can be used as a umbrella when it rains rapidly.
The spring structure built into the shaft unique to the automatic opening / closing umbrella has been reviewed. We reduced the power to store the shaft by about 45% compared to our company, and now we can operate smoothly even if the power is weak.
<Test method> Testing of the force applied when storing the shaft is conducted at a third party inspection organization. Using a constant-speed extension tester, the maximum load (unit: Newton) was measured when pushing 250 mm from the handle side to the stone side with the automatic retractable umbrella closed and the shaft extended.
Although it is an automatic opening and closing umbrella that is easily broken due to its complicated structure, Smooth Automatic has cleared 500 switching endurance tests. Third-party inspection organizations have demonstrated that they can be used without any problems even after endurance testing with 500 cycles of opening and closing at a rate of 6 times per minute.
Since it does not require force to extend and contract the shaft than conventional automatic opening and closing umbrellas, it can be operated easily.
Press the built-in button on the handle to open it with one touch.
When the button is pressed from the open state, the umbrella closes. The shaft is not automatically expanded and contracted, but stored manually.
