It’s rare to pass a café or restaurant that doesn’t use shade umbrellas for their outdoor seating area. With the addition of shade umbrellas, cafés and restaurants are able to expand their seating to serve customers regardless of weather conditions.

This means more business and more business means higher returns. In addition to providing all-weather protection, shade umbrellas can enhance the exterior of a hospitality establishment and make it more inviting, this also brings more business.

Shade umbrellas such as market umbrellas are incredibly popular with such businesses as too are multi-canopy umbrellas, both of which are available in our range of shade umbrellas at Ashadya Shade Sails & Blinds.

Like cafes and restaurants, pubs and bars can also benefit greatly from shade umbrellas. For those with outdoor areas, whether it’s a smoking area, a deck or an outdoor beer garden, by having shade umbrellas installed, such establishments can offer a more comfortable experience.

By offering a more comfortable experience, patrons are likely to be staying longer and consuming more beverages, which, in turn, results in higher profits.

Shade umbrellas popular with pubs and bars include market umbrellas, commercial umbrellas and cantilever umbrella, of which there are various types; rotating, rotating and tilting and multi-canopy.

Resorts & Public Swimming Pools

It there’s one outdoor area where you’re more likely to get sunburnt than any other it’s by the pool or swimming in the pool. This is why shade umbrellas are a must-have for resorts and public swimming pools.

Resorts need to offer guests with a relaxing poolside experience and this cannot be done in the blazing hot sun. Similarly, and perhaps even more important is to provide shade at public swimming pools where there are likely to be more children.

Any shade umbrella is suitable for such an application, however, the umbrella that offers the coverage is a cantilever umbrella; it doesn’t have a centre post and they are available in rotating and rotating and tilting variants.

Sporting Clubs & Centres

Sporting clubs and sporting centres are other businesses that greatly benefit from shade umbrellas. Whether it’s training or a competitive game, parents and spectators will be on the sidelines to support their child or their favourite team.

These businesses make their money from ticket sales and/or food sales. Therefore, the more spectators, the more money they will make.

The best shade sails for sporting clubs and centres are typically market umbrellas. This is because they are both affordable and portable.
