U / Solar Umbrella drier


On a rainy day, plastic bag holders are placed in front of the buildings for putting umbrellas. Amid the ongoing oil price hike, the use of plastic bags for that purpose is a waste of resources; thrown away, these plastic bags eventually become the source of pollution. Introduced against this backdrop is the Solar Umbrella Drier (S.U.D.), which removes the wet by blowing a strong wind.
Using the solar heat-collecting plate at the top, S.U.D. saves solar heat on sunny days and helps save electricity.
