The Bearclaw Parasol is a fully articulated umbrella with flame resistant cloth like our fire version, but without the wicks. Unlike most parasols, the Bearclaw version is built from the ground up to be a fire tool. The skeletal structure of the parasol is 100% metal allowing big nasty fire over the entire surface of the canopy. No need to worry about plastic parts melting.
The principally aluminum frame has a 30″ handle and 18″ aluminum struts. Brass and steel accent the structure at key locations for strength. The umbrella opens and closes as you might expect. The canopy is 1000 degree fire cloth similar to European safety blankets.
“We had a number of customers that wanted to do their own wicking. some did pentagrams, some just couldn’t explain. And a few just wanted a parasol that they didn’t have to worry catching fire while they did other things. So be it. We’re glad to make what customers want.” -Tedward
