Parasols Perfect for Schools, Pubs & Restaurants
Like with our garden furniture, our parasols are not only suitable for gardens they are perfect for many different locations including schools, pubs & restaurants. Here, we will outline the different types of parasols and where they can be used.
Our huge selection of cantilever parasols come in a wide variation of colours so that they can perfectly match your existing furniture and look great in any location. Cantilever parasols are ideal for restaurant gardens and beer garden as they can rotate 360° which is ideal for places open all day long so that they can be rotated to follow the sun as it moves across the sky without having to physically move the parasol.
Our range of cantilever parasols are all controlled with a crank handle, foot pedal and quick release pin. The foot pedal allows you to easily rotate the parasol, the crank handle controls the opening and closing of the parasol and the pin allows you to tilt the parasol at multiple different angles.
Many cantilever parasols come with removeable canopies and we recommend selecting this option if you are looking to use the parasol in a restaurant garden or beer garden as these are locations where the canopy could become dirty or sticky and will need regular cleaning.
The great thing about these cantilever parasols is that they don’t go through the centre of a table, therefore, you can have these in locations over sofa sets or bench areas. This also means they can be moved and put away easily without having to remove from the dining table.
However, these parasols are quite large and do require weighted bases which can take up valuable space. But we believe the freedom to control the parasol with ease and move to your desired area will be a hit with your guests.
Our range of freestanding parasols come in a range of colours so that there is something to suit every location. Freestanding parasols are named as such because they stand on their own without the need to go through a dining table and they also have their own base attached.
We believe these freestanding parasols are perfect for locations such as schools and outdoor pools because of them not needing weights to weigh them down as they already have their own base built in. This makes for incredibly safe use, especially in school playgrounds as it means that children are not at risk of catching their fingers in the weights.
Additionally, many of these freestanding parasols come with wheeled bases meaning that you can move them around with ease. This is ideal for outdoor pools where people often move sun loungers around and need to be able to move a parasol over their sun lounger to offer them welcoming shade when they have been outdoors all day.
Crank & Tilt
Our crank & tilt parasols are crafted using weatherproof aluminium and the canopies come in a huge selection of colours. We recommend that these parasols are used in conjunction with a dining table and suitably weighted base, however, they can be used as a standalone parasol providing the correct base is used.
We believe that these parasols would be ideal for restaurant gardens and beer gardens as they will fit through the centre of your tables, whether they be rattan, wooden or plastic. The parasol has a 38mm pole which will fit through most standard parasol holes.
Our crank & tilt parasols are easily erected via a crank handle and quick release pin which allow for easy opening and closing of the parasol as well as allowing you to angle the parasol in any position to protect you from the sun. On our range of crank & tilt parasols you will also find that the canopies have Velcro straps sewn in which allows you to hold the parasol out of the way when not in use. This easy use will give your customers control over the parasol without having to ask staff to close or remove the parasol if it is in their way.
Pulley Operated Parasols
All of our pulley operated parasols are manufactured using FSC Hardwood and come in a wide selection of colours to match. We recommend that these parasols are used in conjunction with a dining table and suitably weighted base, however, they can be used as a standalone parasol providing the correct base is used.
We believe that these pulley operated parasols would be perfect for beer gardens or picnic tables in school playgrounds. The pulley system is used to erect the parasol and is held in place with a pin, we believe that this system would be easy to use for adults but out of reach for children which will stop school children from playing with the parasols and potentially knocking the parasol over.
These parasols will fit through the centre of your tables, whether they be rattan, wooden or plastic. The parasol has a 38mm pole which will fit through most standard parasol holes. These parasols also have straps sewn into the canopies which will allow you to hold the parasol out of the way when not in use.
Our huge range of parasols can be left outside all year round however we do recommend keeping the parasols closed when not in use or during windy conditions. If you need any further advice when ordering any of our parasols, then do not hesitate to contact us.
