We are pleased to announce that the “UMBRA_vela” project by...
The Parashade was designed to be quickly and efficiently transported and deployed quickly in order to create small camps and provide sunshade wherever needed.
It can be used on the beach or in extreme conditions like refuge camps and whenever there's an environmental crysis and there are charity workers that need to hand out supplies etc. to a large number of people.
It can be scaled and manifectured in different sizes and if it is large enough it can be grouped to form a bigger unit providing more shaded space.
It can be manufectured from aluminum and/or plastic frame and vinyl as the covering material.
When folded it can be stacked one inside the other so it is very efficient for mechanical transportation. And a single person version should be light enough to be caried by hand.
