The summer is officially over, and the days are shorter, darker and colder once again—but that doesn’t mean you have to put away your patio furniture or close your bar, pub or restaurant’s outside space… If you’ve got the right heating and lighting in place to keep your outside space warm and well-lit when the weather’s against you, then there’s no reason it can’t thrive throughout the winter months as well as the summer. And if you work in hospitality, you’ll know that getting this right is about more than making sure your outdoor space is weather-proofed, because you’re also preparing for the busiest trading time of the year—Christmas. Getting the right outdoor heating and lighting in place now allows you to expand your pub, bar or restaurant for the party season, by maximising your covers and increasing your turnover and profit—so you can keep your business buzzing throughout the family get-togethers, work do-s, and general party season. Heating and lighting in luxury style As we’re talking about party season, don’t forget that, at this time of year, style is just as just as important as functionality… It’s why Instashade invented the Heatdome. This luxury heat and light solution is one of our bestselling products, owing to its sleek and sophisticated appearance and unrivalled energy efficiency (which we all need in the current climate), and it’s now available in multiple variations—so you can find the perfect Heatdome for every outside space, whether that’s a bustling beer garden, your sprawling garden lawn, or a slender rooftop terrace. The Heatdome The original Heatdome design earned its popularity for being the ultimate showstopper, outshining all the ‘regular’ patio heaters with its cool and contemporary look, providing not only light and warmth, but a drinking destination for customers to curl up underneath with a cocktail in stylish surroundings. They radiate heat up to five metres, and the ceramic heating elements mean that they use five times less energy than a standard gas-fuelled patio heater, making them super-efficient, too. All Heatdomes come with handy remote controls, so the heat and lighting elements can be adjusted easily, and you can set the two functions to be operated together or separately. Heatdomes are also rustproof, so you don’t need to worry about protecting them overnight or throughout the rainy season, and bluetooth speakers add another touch of luxe, allowing you or your customers to create a personalised music experience while they drink or dine the night away. Space Saving Design The original Heatdome was designed to make a statement with its size, but you might need something more streamline and compact if you have a smaller outside space… step in the Heatdome Pendant, your ultimate space-saving heat and light solution. The traditional Heatdome Pendant is fixed above. They’re ideal for sitting over a table or fire pit, adding an air of elegance to any patio or roof terrace, and they don’t take up any ground space (like the original design), meaning that they don’t interfere with any furniture arrangements underneath. But if attaching above is tricky, the Heatdome Pendant Wall Bracket or Bow Bracket both attach to the wall, giving you the choice of an ornate and timeless design or something more simple and minimalist.
