Ensuring maximum comfort when the weather changes

The warm season has finally come to an end but that does not mean that your guests will have to stay away from your outdoor seating area until next year. In fact, offering seating long into autumn often allows for that special atmosphere when the leaves turn red and yellow and a cool breeze brings in the fragrant autumn air.

Preparation for whatever the unpredictable autumn weather brings is essential now. On those blue sky days CARAVITA parasols will shade your guests from direct sunlight. However it is on rainy, windy and cold afternoons that CARAVITA parasols and accessories really shine. Premium quality awning fabric made from 100% solution dyed acrylic thread protects your outdoor sitting area from sudden rain showers and detachable rain gutters make the spaces between parasols rain proof.

CARAVITA umbrellas, however, not only protect your guests from rain but also from those chilly afternoons when temperatures drop despite the sky being clear. SOLAMAGIC heaters allow your guest to sit outside even on a cold day. The heating system is available for all CARAVITA parasols and can be easily attached to the struts or mast. If you choose the commercial parasol Big Ben all wires are hidden and protected inside the mast. This means you will no longer have to invest in bulky heaters which can get in the way of customers and staff. Instead, you can save on energy bills with efficient infrared SOLAMAGIC heaters. Under the comfortable warmth of the heating elements a simple meal will be an event full of autumnal atmosphere.

Even on a windy day CARAVITA is a safe choice for restaurants and cafés. Its sturdy build makes bestseller Big Ben the perfect parasol for the upcoming winter months. A wind tunnel test has shown that the 3×3 m version withstands winds of up to 100km/h. This means that restaurant owners, staff and guests will feel safe under this reliable parasol. However, in case of stormy weather or stronger winds parasols should always be closed as a safety precaution.

In the evening or on overcast days CARAVITA parasols can be fitted with different lights according to your needs. These can be easily fixed and detached or, in case of the commercial parasol Big Ben, can be integrated as an unobtrusive lighting option. The LED strut light “Elegance” comes in warm white, cold white or with a colour changing effect. A remote control allows for convenient turning on and dimming. Your guest will certainly appreciate how a grey afternoon turns into a comfy get-together with friends in the glow of these impressive parasol lights.

With countless customization options you will find the perfect CARAVITA parasol to complete your outdoor area. Together with integrated lighting and heating options your guests can make use of your terrace for many more weeks to come.

Bigger is Better

Four of Caravita's Bajazzo 20 foot umbrellas form a tent in the center of this beautiful outdoor plaza.

At Caravita we manufacture high quality patio umbrellas that range in size from seven to twenty feet.  You may question why would anyone need an umbrella of twenty feet? You would be surprised by how an umbrella of this size could benefit an outdoor space.  Let us take you through the benefits of owning such a large patio umbrella. The umbrella should be at least be 4-5 feet larger than the area being shaded.  Therefore, to shade an area with a table and chairs that seat up to 4 people (approximately 5 feet), an umbrella of at least nine feet would be needed to accomodate the space.  That 4-5 foot rule would apply as the shaded space grows. This is why at  Caravita we offer customization options  based on the arrangement of your outdoor living space.   With our various options from  center masted to cantilevered umbrellas also ranging in color,size, and fabric, we can be sure to cater to any customer’s needs.   As you can see in the image to the right, our large umbrellas like the Bajazzo series are used in groupings to create the effect of forming a large tent.  Check out michaelcaravita.com to view our several other series and customization options!
