Recently you experienced a large earthquake. Has this caused a lot of damage?

We faced 3 large earthquakes namely on August 24, October 26 and October 30. Fortunately, the apartments we rent out remained intact. Luckily also the pool and the umbrellas remained untouched. Shook proof apparantly ;-) and the umbrellas are anchored into the ground, so that seems to have helped aswell. Our own house suffered major damage. It has been declared uninhabitable and will have to be demolished and rebuilt. Anti-seismic of course…

 

How did you start the search for shade creations that are related to the theme, the design, … of your B&B? 

A few years back a refurbishement of our pool area was needed. Initially we purchased low priced traditional umbrellas. Honestly we didn’t have much experience with shade creation at that time. Soon we noticed that these umbrellas were not suitable for commercial use. We started an online search for durable commercial-grade umbrellas with a contemporary look. Flexibility was also a must along with easy maintenance. Umbrosa seemed the right match. Three Paraflex monoflex umbrellas were mounted by the pool and on the upper terrace we installed a Paraflex duo to cover a long table.

 

 

What convinced you to eventually choose for Umbrosa?

The combination of design, flexibility (the movable arm), storm resistance, price/quality, ease of maintenance/storage and availability of replacement parts.
