Flexible

The patented geometry allows the stretchers to resist strong winds by elastically flexing. The hinges are designed to last for thousands of open-close cycles.

 

Only 20 pieces

The number of Ginkgo components has been considerably reduced, from the traditional 120 pieces to just 20.
The assembling procedure needs no screws or pivots, as all the couplings are obtained by long lasting and reliable snap-fit joints. With few components there is minimal chance of failure, and the design is favorable with production done by injection moulding.

 

100%PP

Polypropylene is found everywhere in everyday life. It has been chosen for Ginkgo as it is among the lightest plastic materials whilst being extremely resistant to mechanical stress and chemical agents. At the same time it ensures flexibility to the stretchers and the joints, strength and rigidity to the pole. And of course it is completely recyclable.
