Ultra-light parasol using 100% blackout fabric

100% light-shielding rate fabric and lightweight carbon fiber frame were combined. Achieves a lightness of 108 grams.

Umbrella frame is a wind resistant structure that can withstand wind speeds up to 15 m / s.100% blackout fabric umbrella with lightness and durability.

The world's lightest class 100% blackout fabric 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.

As the shading rate becomes high, the fabric becomes thick, so the umbrella bone supporting the fabric must also be strong.

Disadvantages of shading parasols that become heavy as a whole.

In particular, parasols with "100% light blocking rate" are thick and not suitable for folding umbrellas.

"HEAT BLOCK" has developed a completely light-shielding fabric with a light-shielding ratio of 100% and a light and light improvement.

By making the fabric thin and light, it is also possible to reduce the weight of the umbrella bone, which weighs about 108 g.

It is the lightest class weight in the world as a folding parasol using a 100% light blocking rate fabric.

Use fabric with 100% shading rate

"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 ratio.

As long as the fabric is not torn, its light shielding effect is semi-permanent.

The shading performance has been confirmed 100% shading by inspection 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).

 

【Notes】

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.

UV protection rate is 99.9%

Shaded 100% fabric does not transmit sunlight
Shaded 100% fabric does not transmit sunlight
Sunlight passes through the UV-cut 91.7% fabric
Sunlight passes through the UV-cut 91.7% fabric

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.

Ultra-thin lightweight fabric

The fabric could be improved thin and light by weaving with thin thread.

The thread thickness used in common umbrellas is 75 denier.

The fabric used for "HEAT BLOCK" is 15 denier, the same level of fineness of the yarn used for stocking.

Carbon fiber lightweight frame

 

The umbrella frame has achieved weight reduction by combining it with a light and durable frame of carbon fiber and aluminum.

5 umbrella ribs. Become lighter.

Light but durable frame

The weight of conventional umbrellas has been reduced in strength, while those made more durable have been heavier. The heat block is designed not only for light but also for strength and durability, and has a durable frame structure that can withstand wind speeds up to 15 m / s.

 

【Notes】

In the wind resistance test, the umbrella is loaded while gradually increasing the wind speed. When you open the umbrella, you may not be able to withstand the sudden load such as the operation.
