Weather protection is an essential element of successful outdoor dining places. Restaurant owners who rely on high-grade solutions, do not only benefit from the sunny days of summer. CARAVITA parasols provide various interesting approaches to the topic.

It is a long known fact among successful restaurant owners: In the hospitality business parasols have to be capable of doing more than just providing shade. Protection against rain and cold becomes increasingly important because outdoor areas only work when they are dry and comfortable. CARAVITA, manufacturer of parasols based in Germany, has seen this upwards trend for a long time. They observe an increasing demand for high quality products which are able to provide this weather protection. For this reason, CARAVITA developed various possibilities for restaurateurs to protect their customers against the weather.

“In order for parasols to provide any weather protection at all, the construction has to be strong enough. Therefore we use aluminum frames with extra thick walls and diameters. For our hospitality parasol Big Ben even particulary long supporting profiles. This way we managed to accomplish results of up to 100 km/h in the wind tunnel.”, CEO Michael Caravita says.

For the canopy CARAVITA relies on European brand manufacturers. This high grade premium acrylic awning fabrics protect reliably against light rain. The WaterProofed-version of the fabric eben against stronger showers. The absolutely waterproof Ferrai Precontraint 302 provides the ultimate protection even against persistant heavy rain.

Especially parasol Big Ben is very popular among quality-consious restaurateurs: The parasol is extremely wind resistant, durable and available in sizes up to 5 x 7 m. Therefore it is ideal to protect large areas against sun or rain. If more than one parasol is used, they can be connected with rain gutters. Those are attached to the parasol with velcro and hooks and can be removed when not needed. Protection against rain from the sides can be achieved with side panels. Those are custom made from acrylic awning fabric, i. e. with transpararent windows or doors for staff and guests.

The possibility to integrate heating and lighting into the parasol is another huge advantage of the Big Ben. Even on cold days and long evenings, guests will find a comfortable place below this parasol.
