Solar Umbrellas

Type EC - Solar umbrella



  • Dimensions & Measures

  • Technical information


    The Type EC - Solar parasol is an advanced version of the classic tulip parasol, using just the best materials of its kind. The greatest distinction between the tulip parasol and the solar umbrella is the ability to harvest solar energy through its claddings attached to the spokes. The cladding are designed with membrane back holders in such a way, that the solar panels are covering the whole membrane when the parasol is in closed position.


    The cover is made up of individual segments which are screwed to the frame by Sterling Steel hooks at the top and by rust-proof screws at the ends of the spokes. The cover is replaceable and is fade, light and water resistant. It is designed to withstand all weather conditions.
