As many parts of the world brace for a second heat storm in a week, the immediate need for shade and keeping cool is paramount; and sheltering guests from harmful UV is equally important, especially for the hospitality industry.


All parasols provide shade, but many do not provide UV protection.

The key to an effective terrace parasol is quality, not only in manufacturing, but also the standard of the fabric and its ability to block at least 90% of the sun’s UV rays.

So, please check that your parasols provide the correct mix of the following:

Set your venue apart from competitors. Position it as a destination that prioritizes guest well-being by safeguarding them from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays so they can relax, dine, or socialize outdoors in comfort.

All Symo Parasols fabrics block at least 90% of all UV radiation, and most colours block 100% (total sunblock).

Make sure your parasols use high-quality fabrics which are more resistant to fading, tearing, or wear over time. In the long run you’ll save money on frequent replacements.

Symo Parasols offers a 10-year warranty on all commercial fabrics.

Get ahead of the game! An increasing number of countries are introducing regulations regarding UV protection for outdoor spaces, including hospitality venues, so make sure you’re minimizing any legal risks and potential liabilities associated with inadequate sun protection for guests.

Symo Parasols fabric is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective UV protector.

Try to select terrace parasols with a high-quality and sustainable fabric which reduces environmental impact and resonates with guests who appreciate environmentally responsible choices.

Symo Parasols uses industry leading fabrics which are resistant to UV radiation, mildew and insects, manufactured in a way that saves water, energy and chemicals.
