Umbrellas XXL

Type E XXL - Tulip Form



Tulip umbrella has a design specially developed by MDT-tex, the shape of which was derived from nature. The membrane resembles a flower pointing upwards and its surfaces form a kind of funnel due to their curvature. The screen struts are located above the membrane when stretched and are not visible from below.

The special feature of the tulip umbrella is not only its appearance, but also its functionality. Due to the upward facing flower shape, rainwater can be collected and drained into the ground through the double pole system or collected in a cistern. In addition to water drainage, the parasol can also be additionally equipped with smart systems, such as a water filtration system. In addition, the tulip parasols can be customized with effects such as lighting with LED lamps or imprints on the membrane, creating an extraordinary ambience for any location. 

The E XXL type parasol is available in square, 8x8m, 9x9m and 10x10m sizes and round with the diameter of 8m, 9m,10m and 12m. Type E is opened or closed with a removable hand crank or electrically by means of an integrated motor.

MDT-tex offers different materials as membrane. Let us advise you individually to make a choice between MDT-tex 480 PVC or MDT-tex 680 PVC. Tulip umbrellas E XXL are anchored in a foundation with ground sleeves.

Its special design creates a very special ambience and is the perfect alternative to the classic parasol. Due to the wide range of different span widths, the tulip umbrella finds its field of application in public spaces, e.g. as a market parking lot or roofing of an open-air cinema.
