The autarch powered solar umbrella from MDT-tex, is an optimal solution for city centres looking for an urban shading solution. The solar claddings, which are attached to the spokes, secure the structure against vandalism when the umbrella is closed. At the same time an integrated battery stores sufficient energy to recharge your mobile devices.
Modern cities have to deal with increasing temperatures in their cities, new forms of mobility and decreasing contact with nature. With our outdoor products such as the solar umbrella we seek to discover new possibilities for urban spaces. Let it be an urban canopy with integrated atmosphere lights installed at a promenade or full landscaping concepts including relaxation areas built from our module construction kits, which include: Urban membrane canopies, modular eucalyptus terraces, planters, green walls, city benches and acoustic walls.
Many growing cities today are located in areas with harsh temperature conditions. In areas like the middle east a XXL tulip umbrella may initiate outdoor life, in squares which are otherwise not accessible. The energy harvested during the day can be stored and used by night for illumination effects. The potential cool down effect of such a solar umbrella could lay in between 8 and 15 degrees Celsius for the space covered. For our XXL parasols we use our PTFE woven fabric to ensure hundred of thousands folding cycles.
