With the hospitality industry taking a massive hit with the Coronavirus pandemic putting countries around the world into lockdown, Dorset-based Broadview Shading Solutions has revealed that some restaurants and cafés are taking advantage of the quiet time to improve their establishments ready for the Summer season.
“We know that these are challenging times for businesses, more so for those in the hospitality sector, but we have seen a number of clients enquire about our outdoor shading solutions so they can maximise their outside space to be used all year round” explains Ian Pratt, Director at Broadview.
With a wide range of products including outdoor pergola systems from highly reputable manufacturer Brustor, umbrellas and parasols, as well as manual or motorised awnings and canopies, Broadview has transformed the outside dining and seating areas for a number of the South’s most prominent businesses including The Sandbanks Hotel, Chichester Yacht Club, the NED Hotel and Rick Stein restaurant in Barnes, London.
The most recent addition to their range of products is frameless sliding glass, which thanks to their appointment as the UK’s official dealer of C3 Systems, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of quality glazing solutions, means they can offer restaurants and cafés highly attractive yet simple to use sliding glass systems that can act as wind resistant dividers with no awkward vertical frames that might spoil an otherwise stunning view.
For those businesses that can afford to invest in their premises at this time, there can be no better investment than creating a visually stunning space that also increases covers and can be used 365 days a year. And with the UK ready to party and socialise like never before when we come out of the current situation, establishments will want to be in the best position to take advantage.
“As in any time of crisis, those businesses that bury their heads and panic are likely to end up worse off, while those that can make the best of a bad situation will come out on top”.
Broadview have helped hundreds of bars, restaurants, hotels and cafés across the UK to make the most of their outside space with their range of innovative outdoor living systems.
