The telescopic umbrella is one of the most important umbrellas in the entire MDT collection. Its streamlined expansion system is made possible via an elegant design which has been constructed from solid aluminum. Functionality has been enhanced to the max thanks to certain materials used, making spans of up to 52 feet possible. Larger models even come equipped with an electrical motor instead of just a hand crank. When combined with proper rain drainage systems, several telescopic umbrellas can be quickly and freely arranged in groups to provide extensive overhead coverage outside. n contrast to permanent roofing fixtures, the telescopic umbrella not only provides maximum protection from the sun and rain but can also be enjoyed in many different seasons outside, making the Type T umbrella a highly desired commercial product. A parasol that can handle winds up to 80 mph also exists for especially windy environments such as in the mountainous or coastal regions. Vital parts such as the center pole and spokes have been enhanced or replaced with stainless steel to increase this umbrella’s resistance to the wind.
