Generally speaking, according to the number of folds, the umbrellas in the umbrella market are mainly divided into four categories: straight umbrellas (one fold), two fold umbrellas, three fold umbrellas, and five fold umbrellas. The so-called folding umbrella means that the skeleton of the umbrella can be folded several times. For example, a two-fold umbrella means that the umbrella ribs can be folded twice.
First of all, a straight umbrella or one folding umbrella. The advantage is that the ribs are generally steel frames, strong and durable, and the elderly can also be used as crutches. The disadvantage is that it is long and generally not very convenient to carry, taking up space.
Next, introduce the two-fold umbrella. This folding number is generally high-grade umbrellas and umbrellas. People familiar with parasols may know that two-fold umbrellas are generally more expensive. This is because they generally have a stable skeleton design, and the fabrics are mostly embroidered, imported color tape, etc., plus the exquisite design and good workmanship, so the price is positioned in the middle and high-end. The main advantages: the quality has not been said, the design is very beautiful, easy to carry, windproof sunscreen effect is very good. It is a little bit heavier than the 5 fold and the 3 fold umbrella.
Then introduce the 3-fold umbrella. These three-fold umbrellas are widely distributed, and most umbrellas and parasols are generally designed in this way. You can take your umbrella out and check it out. Mostly it is a 3-fold. It should be said that this is a relatively modest design, not unassuming and low-key. From the aspects of texture and use, it is a moderate design. Good quality, long service life, good sun protection and windproof, moderate weight and moderate length. The overall is also moderate, is a more popular, practical design concept.
Finally, introduce the five-fold umbrella. These umbrellas are known for their shortness and portability. It is mainly designed for the long and heavy problems of ordinary umbrellas. It is designed from resin bone and high-grade aluminum alloy skeleton. A lot of parasols are designed to be 5 folding like this. The main drawback is that the ribs are too fragile, and the ribs can't stand the wind and rain. Therefore, it is wise to use such umbrellas for sun protection, and be careful with wind and rain.
