In 2017 CARAVITA is introducing a custom-made, professional parasol called Big Ben Freestyle. Size and form of the new shade can be defined by the client. Big Ben Freestyle allows for shading of outdoor dining areas up into every last corner. Even terraces with protruding walls and other obstacles can now be covered.
“The client sends his draft, we check the technical feasibility, and finally the parasol is produced exactly as specified. For example with a recess or an offset mast.”, CEO Michael Caravita says. “With Big Ben Freestyle we provide our clients with a professional shade and weather protection system up to 36m2.“
As with the standard sizes of the Big Ben series, Big Ben Freestyle benefits from an extremely robust construction. In the wind tunnel, the 3 x 3 m version of the professional parasol braves even storm winds of up to 100 km/h (63 mph).
As an option LED-lights can be integrated directly into the frame in order to serve clients until late in the evening. With the optionally integrated heating system it’s even possible to welcome guests until late into the cold season. Cables and wires are well protected and hidden from sight inside of the aluminum frame.
In hospitality, a parasol´sweather resistance and stability is essential. Because where guests are king their well-being and a perfect ambiance are of utmost importance.

When creating our classy sun shades, sun sails, and pavillions. Caravita will customize our acrylic fabrics based on the customers’ preferences. Let us introduce you to three of our favorite companies when it comes to deciding the fabrics for our products.
First, we have Dickson Constant, a leading European awning fabric company, which creates “innovative textiles for your world.” Dickson has made several lines of 100% solution- dyed acrylic fabrics available in various patterns and colorsand made to maintain unbeatable colorfastness. The fabrics hold true to their quality with UV protectant and a Cleanguard water and stain resistant treatment allowing them to live up to their 5 year warranty.
Next, let us tell you about an Italian company we work with called Para. Para’s Tempotest fabrics are also 100% solution-dyed acrylics with a 93-98% filtering effect protecting against UV rays. Awnings and outdoor patio umbrellass made with this fabric reduce heat up to 20% for light colors, 20-30% for pastels, and over 30% for dark colors. The fabrics have been tested for harmful substances under the International Oeko-Tex Association Confidence in Textiles, haveTUV Italycertification, are treated with aHI-Cleanfinishing for mould and water protection, and have a Dupont Teflon Extremecoating for solar protection. All of these components guarantee an 8 year warranty for the fabrics.
Finally, we have our Sattler fabric. Sattler also makes solution-dyed acrylic fabrics, but one of its best qualities is its optional flame retardant coating called Firemaster Plus. This is ideal due to the strict fire codes that have developed in the recent years, particularly in California. It also offers the best protectionagainst rain and a 5 year warranty.
Italians have always been known for their eloquent design taste and have been paving the way in quality textiles for generations. PARA Group fabrics have been designing and producing some highest quality of awning fabrics for over 80 years. Their belief in the fabric quality begins at production. What started out as cotton fabric being used for garden furniture turned into expanding into awnings and sunshades. They then turned their attention towards the acrylic fabrics based on much higher durability and waterproofing capabilities. All fabrics go through a rigorous dyeing, cleaning and inspection process to insure the highest level in color fastness.
