Tulip umbrella Typ EC

Product description

The Tulip parasols are equipped with high efficiency mono-crystalline Silicon solar cells on the claddings. The harvested energy is stored in a battery bank at the foot of the parasol. On a typical day such a parasol produces sufficient energy to drive LED lamps and charge mobile phones. In addition, electrical engines for automated opening and closing of the parasols can also be powered by the solar energy. So these sun shades are ideal for locations with no access to electrical network. The stored energy could be used to charge or operate other electrical appliances as well. For example, on a good day a 4x4 m parasol can produce sufficient energy to charge up to two electrical city bikes.


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.
