All Square Compact Umbrella – Silver UV
There are many travel umbrellas on the market with a silver UV protective inner canopy surface – indeed we sell them ourselves. The silver lining is intended to reduce the amount of Ultra Violet getting through the canopy. One slight drawback of this approach however is that some UV can be reflected from the ground (depending on the surface) and then again from the reflective interior of the umbrella onto your head and face. The shape of the umbrella can actually have the effect of concentrating the UV rays.
To combat this we have reversed the conventional UV protective design so that the silver is on the outside and the black on the inside. The silver finish filters out much of the UV strength and reflects it away from the canopy. However, by having a black interior we are able to stop the sun’s indirect ground-reflected rays from being focused on the your head and face.
The new ‘All Square’ compact umbrellas are now available with UV protection and equally suitable for ladies or gents. Up here in Umbrella Heaven, we consider the fantastic all square design of this travel umbrella to be an engineering marvel with it’s three section, square, telescopic shaft which compliments the square canopy and finished off with a novel square rubber handle.
With a silver outer and black inner these folding umbrellas offer excellent Ultra Violet protection. This compact umbrella is just 33 cm / 13″ long when closed and opens up to give a generous canopy width of 81 cm / 32″ (120 cm / 47″ measured corner to corner). Weight 431g approx. A truly fantastic compact umbrella, perfect for airline travel, easy to stow, easy to use, a stunning functional design with added UV protection! Who on earth said square was never going to be cool and safe?
