The summer’s scorching heatwave has seen people soaking up the sunshine in their gardens and flooding to beer gardens and roof terraces. So if you run a hospitality business, it’s vital your outdoor space is kitted out with premium parasols to keep your customers cool and comfortable, so they want to stay put and order even more food and drinks… And while it might be a way off yet, the right parasols offers more than summer shade—they provide shelter from the elements as the seasons change, too. Our Café Series Parasols and accessories give you everything you need to transform your outside space, so you can keep your business buzzing through every season. A classic for a reason, our Café Series Parasols are manufactured with the finest and most lightweight aluminium on the market, offering a chic and contemporary look that’s guaranteed to elevate your outdoor area—whether you’re styling out your business, or transforming your garden into an amazing entertaining space. But just because they’re lightweight doesn’t mean there’s any compromise on quality, as our Café Series Parasols are robust, hard-wearing, and built to last: The canopies are made from high-grade canvas and are both UV-resistant and water-repellent, coming with a three year canopy-fade warranty. The anodized aluminium frame is light enough to make it easily portable if you’re dressing up and down your outdoor space regularly, but it’s also incredibly reliable and strong, with a 34-month warranty. An easy-to-use rope and pulley system means that putting up the umbrella is effortless. A 60km per hour wind rating means the sturdy Café Series Parasols are able to withstand high winds—so you’re set throughout the winter months. 1.Find your perfect size and colour Instashade offers a range of colours and effects for you to choose from: Black, Natural, Slate, Smoked Tweed, or White.

If you have a street-side drinking or dining terrace, you want passers-by to be able to easily see who you are at a glance—but it’s just as important for building your brand identity if your café or beer garden is tucked away. Instashade’s personalised parasol printing service lets you create a completely unique design, so whether you want to add your logo, slogan, an image, or anything else, we’ll brand up your umbrella by printing your design onto the canvas, ensuring your parasol is one of a kind. We might all be basking in the summer sun right now, but if you’re running a hospitality business in the UK, you need to be prepared for the cold, blustery, rainy weather, too. If you don’t, you could be losing valuable customers and revenue. It’s why we designed our Café Series Parasol Heater… It’s the high-end solution for retro-fitting heaters that easily attaches to the pole of any of our Café Series Parasols, it’s fully waterproof, each of the three 1kW heater laps can be swivelled 90 degrees so that you can direct the heat, and it can be operated with either a simple switch or a remote control—making sure your customers stay warm and toasty when the weather is anything but. We get it—you might be organising a one-off festival, holding a sporting event, or hosting a wedding party. If you need parasols for a specific event, we’ve got you covered with our parasol event hire service. Just get in touch and we’ll help you transform your event. We also know that in the current climate you might want to hire parasols for a longer period of time—Covid-19 regulations for hospitality are behind us now, but if the pandemic has seen you expand your outdoor space temporarily, with a plan to bring it all back inside again at some point, then we can support your business with parasol hire for as long as you need. Whether your parasols are being installed into decking, a patio or lawn, our full installation service has you covered. Instashade’s installation experts will bolt the base into place, so you can add or remove the umbrella whenever you want—you personalise your Café Series Parasol, and we’ll take care of the rest.
