    Parapactum : the first dome of multidirectional protection with instant deployment.

    Parapactum has no equivalent in the world
    It is the high tech of the moment, conceived like a high performance sailing ship.
    If the materials that make its composition and its architecture show unfailing strength,  the parapactum hides its power with finesse in the elegance of its lines, thus keeping the standard of Le Veritable Cherbourg's label.

    This umbrella is much more than just an umbrella
    Its mast and its ribs'arches, which offer great toughness, as well as its tripple layer (rather wraparound) canopy, make it the most performing auxiliary ever designed for close protection.
    ParaPactum is a real shield which allows one to hide as well as to avoid or protect from blunt thrown objects, and keep distance from agressions.

    Le Véritable Cherbourg, for the past 25 years has been creating umbrellas, and for the past 15 years has been producing in its own workshop upmarket umbrellas, reaching the tip of innovation.
    The label easily inserts itself in the world of luxury where it is acknowledged for its reliable and creative products. It is established in Cherbourg, in the Cotentin region, where numerous high tech firms are working for excellence.

    Tests of ultimate stress
     : in wind tunnels ; against dogs weighing 55lb (25kg) and hitting it at 21,7 m/h (35 km/h) ; with a variety of blunt objects thrown at it with full power ; and with further tests with other means of pressure : all of these have proved that Parapactum is fulfilling its mission even beyond its yield point.
    Parapactum has been recognized by the ASC (Association Sportive et Culturelle) as a deployable device for protection.

    Parapactum is being produced one at a time
    ,. It is composed of 176 parts, with several engravings which are dated and numbered. The extreme care while making it reveals itself with each detail. of which the workshop ensures after sales service and maintenance.
