Umbrellas and parasols are primarily hand-held portable devices designed to shield an individual from sun or rain, and are sized for personal use. Today, larger parasols are often used as fixed or semi-fixed devices, used with patio tables or other outdoor furniture, or as points of shade on a sunny beach. The collapsible/folding umbrella, the direct predecessor to the modern umbrella, originated in China.

In an industrial context, an umbrella is a device that is used to protect workers or equipment from the sun, rain, or other environmental factors. Industrial umbrellas can come in a variety of sizes and materials, and are often designed to be durable and resistant to wear and tear. Here are some examples of industrial applications of umbrellas:

  1. Outdoor Seating: Umbrellas are often used in outdoor seating areas at restaurants, cafes, and other businesses to provide shade and protect customers from the sun and rain.

  2. Industrial Equipment: Umbrellas can be used to protect industrial equipment from the elements, such as construction equipment, industrial machinery, or outdoor storage.

  3. Material Storage: Industrial umbrellas can be used to cover outdoor material storage areas, protecting materials from exposure to the sun, rain, or other environmental factors.

  4. Loading Docks: Umbrellas can be installed over loading docks to protect workers and materials from rain or snow during loading and unloading.

  5. Agriculture: Umbrellas can be used in agriculture to provide shade for plants, protect crops from the sun, or shelter workers during outdoor work.

Other devices or materials similar to umbrellas include:

  1. Canopies: Structures used to provide shade or protection from the sun and rain, often used in outdoor events or as a shelter for outdoor seating areas.

  2. Awnings: Overhanging structures attached to the exterior of a building, used to provide shade or shelter for outdoor spaces.

  3. Tents: Portable structures used to provide temporary shelter or protection from the elements, often used in outdoor events or camping.

  4. Tarps: Flexible, waterproof covers used to protect materials or equipment from the elements, often used in construction or industrial applications.

  5. Parasols: Similar to umbrellas, but typically smaller and used for personal rather than industrial purposes.
