Generally speaking, according to the number of folds, the umbrella market is mainly divided into four categories: straight umbrellas (one fold), two (two) fold umbrellas, three fold umbrellas, and five fold umbrellas. The so-called multi-fold umbrella means that the umbrella frame (keel) can be folded several times. For example, a two-fold umbrella means that the umbrella stand can be folded twice.
First of all, the straight umbrella or the one-fold umbrella. Umbrellas are mostly used for rain or shine, and almost all umbrella manufacturers produce such straight umbrellas. The advantage is that the umbrella ribs are generally made of steel frame, which is strong and durable, and the elderly can also be used as crutches. The disadvantage is that it is longer, generally not very convenient to carry, and takes up space.
Next, I will introduce the two-fold umbrella. This fold is generally for high-end parasols and foreign umbrellas. Those who are familiar with parasols may know that two-fold umbrellas are generally more expensive. This is because they generally have a stable frame design, and the fabrics are mostly embroidery, imported colored tape, etc., plus exquisite design and good workmanship, so the price is positioned at mid-to-high-end. The main advantages: the quality is not to say, the design is very beautiful, it is convenient to carry, and the effect of wind and sun protection is very good. Disadvantages: A little bit heavier than half-fold and triple-fold umbrellas (maybe not a disadvantage).
Then: let's talk about the three-fold umbrella. These three-fold umbrellas are widely distributed, and most umbrellas and parasols are generally designed in this way. Believe it or not, you can take out your umbrella and check it. It's probably a 30% discount. It should be said that this is a more modest design, unassuming and low-key. In terms of texture and use, they are relatively moderate designs. Good quality, long service life, better sun and wind, moderate weight and moderate length. The overall design is moderate, and it is a relatively popular and practical design concept.
Finally, talk about the five-fold umbrella. This type of umbrella is known for being short, compact and easy to carry. Mainly aimed at the long and heavy problems of general umbrellas, it is designed by resin bone and high-grade aluminum alloy frame. Many parasols are designed to be 50% off. The main drawback is the umbrella ribs, which cannot bear the wind and rain. Therefore, it is wise to use this kind of umbrellas for sun protection, and be careful to prevent wind and rain.
