Professional parasols and outdoor shadings

MDT Ges. f. Sonnenschutzsysteme GmbH

MDT manufactures and supplies innovative and storm-safe umbrellas, sun protection systems and textile architecture to customers all over the world.

Rain protection is included, which is especially important for events, marketing activities and rent of the umbrellas.

Due to 20 years of experience we individualise our technical fabric, which has been developed in-house, with textile printing.

MDT’s core compentences are the in-house R&D department as well as the production. Serial productions, individual projects and single products are

manufactured at different international locations and provide the opportunity realise customer’s wishes flexible and promptly.

As a medium-sized company based in Tägerwilen in Switzerland and Hardheim in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, we help create attractive outdoor living spaces

with our high-quality sun-protection systems. For over 20 years, our in-house development and production has provided the foundation for our operations around

the world. Over 20,000 square meters of production and storage space enable us to react to our customers’ wishes with flexibility.

Our name, Membran-Design-Technik (membrane design technology), also illustrates our agenda: we use our considerable technical expertise to realise high-quality

and sophisticated design. Our unique products are highly appreciated around the world for their form and function. People enjoy the free spaces that we open up

far beyond our umbrellas: textile outdoor architecture. Our customers benefit from our company’s versatility, which covers the entire supply chain. With continuous

investment in state-of-the-art production technologies, MDT controls diversified supply chains at several locations.cThis in turn provides the basis for

customer optimised contract manufacturing as well as for large projects, series production, framework contracts, and custom manufacturing. Last but not least,

site-specific manufacturing procedures and product optimisation have developed steadily as a result. This allows for production

activity at the highest possible level and ensures that our products and our textile expertise will continue to develop.

Substance meets style . Whatever material our clients choose, they always opt for the best quality. We offer our own textile membranes, which are designed by our

research and development team, and manufactured in our production plants. MDT-tex®, our highly flexible, dirt-resistant membrane, is available in all print

dimensions and may be used for all types of umbrellas. Of course, they are also available in flame-retardant versions and can be individually combined.

High quality begins in the planning stage . Our many years of experience make it possible for us to realise prototypes rapidly in-house.

Here, we trust our highly specialised architects and planners. Before the first prototypes are built, we test them in virtual reality. The combination

of specialised software programs simulates the opening and closing procedures of complex rods and textiles. The simulation of textile dynamics alone subjects the

technology to high demands. Therefore, resilience is tested by the TÜV inspection association in series production, and for large projects it is simulated and

calculated with models in wind canal tests. Impetus for innovations . Creativity and delight in innovation are essential character traits of our company.

Since our founding 20 years ago, our philosophy has been to cultivate close cooperation with national and international research facilities.

With expert partners from the scientific community and universities, we ensure that we have a “window on technology.”

We shape the future . Innovations are also called for in our own production processes. We not only develop our products ourselves but also our manufacturing

technology. To ensure our cutting quality, we use a CAD cutter we developed ourselves, which has a cutting breadth of over two meters.

It can handle highly complicated custom cuts as well as challenging brand and logo printing with a logo recognition system.
