Achieve a lightness of 108 grams by combining a 100% shaded fabric and a carbon fiber frame. In addition, it is a wind resistant structure that can withstand wind speeds up to 15 m / s, and it is a completely shaded umbrella that combines lightness and durability.
There are more people who carry parasols in the season when UV rays become stronger, but the parasols that carry are high in shading rate, and products that are light and durable are required.
Because the fabric gets thicker as the light blocking rate gets higher, the umbrella frame that supports the fabric also needs to be strong, and the disadvantage is that it will be heavier overall.
In particular, the parasol of the "100% shading fabric" was thick and not suitable for a folding umbrella that is easy to carry.
Amvel Inc. has developed the "HEAT BLOCK", which is a thin and light improvement of the fabric, while maintaining the 100% shading specification.
By making the fabric thin and light, it is also possible to reduce the weight of the umbrella bone, achieving a body weight of approximately 108 grams.
It is the lightest class weight in the world as a folding parasol using a 100% opaque fabric.
"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.
As long as the fabric is not torn, its shading effect is semipermanent.
Regarding the light shielding performance, 100% of the light shielding has been confirmed by the inspection of the light shielding property 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).
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.
<Same day at the same time>
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.
The fabric could be improved thin and light by weaving with thin thread.
The thickness of the yarn used in general umbrellas is 75 denier, but the fabric used for "HEAT BLOCK" is 15 denier, the same level as the thinness of the yarn used in stockings.
Umbrella frame has achieved weight reduction by combining it with light and durable carbon fiber and aluminum.
Also, usually the rib is lighter by setting six to five.
The weight of conventional umbrellas has been reduced in strength, while those made more durable have been heavier.
"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.
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.
Recently, there are a lot of products that are displayed as "UV cut 90%" and "UV cut 99%", but it is fundamentally different from a shaded parasol.
Shading is a material that blocks sunlight. UV cut blocks ultraviolet light, but it transmits sunlight.
If it is 100% light blocking effect and UV protection is the same level.
The heat block is a 100% light shade 100% umbrella with the world's lightest class, which is thinner in fabric and lighter in frame than other products.
Even bright colors can be manufactured. However, ultraviolet rays are reflected from the ground.
If the inside of the umbrella is a bright color, the ultraviolet rays reflected from the ground will be reflected inside the umbrella, and the ultraviolet rays will be applied to the face and neck.
Dark color such as black absorbs UV rays, so UV rays are less likely to be reflected inside the umbrella.
Umbrella fabric is manufactured in a leading factory in Taiwan.
A manufacturer with a high market share in water-repellent and waterproof fabrics, and also manufactures fabrics for sports companies in the US and Europe that are strict not only in terms of quality but also in terms of manufacturing standards and environmental standards. You are In addition, there are many cases where other products of the 100% shade umbrella use Japanese-made fabrics, but "HEAT BLOCK" realizes the commercialization with reduced cost by using Taiwan-made fabrics. .
The shading effect is semi-permanent.
A common parasol is emitting UV effect by coating a UV absorber on the surface of the fabric. Alternatively, there is also a method of producing a light shielding effect and UV effect by applying a polyurethane coating on the back of the fabric. Processing that depends on the above-mentioned coating may cause the coating to peel off and deteriorate due to aging and dirt on the fabric. The heat block is manufactured by bonding the light shielding film, so the light shielding effect is semi permanent unless the material is broken.
It can be used without problems as a combination rain and rain umbrella and a rain umbrella.
The fabric surface is treated with a water repellent coating, so it can be used in the same way as using a regular umbrella.
Although there is a heat shielding effect compared to a normal UV-cut parasol, “Insulating effect” is not shown because the inspection method and judgment criteria are difficult to understand for the general public. There are also products that exaggerate the heat shielding effect with other companies, saying that it will be 7 to 10 degrees cooler, but in reality the figures are greatly influenced by conditions such as humidity, wind, location, etc. As the temperature doesn't change, the expression "It's cool" is clear.
Decorations such as lace, embroidery and frills leave holes in the fabric, so the decoration is kept.
I am conscious of product making stuck to 100% shading.
