Expand your catering business: the retractable veranda

15 November 2021

Winter is just around the corner, and it’s already time for hospitality professionals to start thinking about how to prepare for the summer season. Do you own a restaurant, hotel, café or bar and want to extend its surface area, or simply protect your terrace so you can use it more often? The retractable veranda is an attractive, cost-effective solution.

The bioclimatic veranda: a room that adapts to the seasons

As you may have noticed, the weather in Belgium can be quite changeable. We’re used to going from sunny skies to rainy weather in a matter of minutes. But when the sun comes out, customers like to take advantage of the terraces and other outdoor facilities. Conversely, sometimes a 5pm spritz in the sun ends up next to a radiator indoors.

The removable patio enclosure lets you enjoy outdoor pleasures throughout the seasons. Specially
designed to meet the needs of the hospitality industry
It opens and closes in a matter of seconds to adapt to changing weather conditions. This bioclimatic system lets you enjoya green or urban setting at any time. In short, a glass bubble that offers charm and comfort to your customers, protected from both wind and rain!

An ideal solution for expanding a facility

By installing a veranda, you canconsiderably increase the surface area of your establishment and welcome more customers. As it is not in itself an extension to the building, it does not require such extensive work. It’s simply a matter of covering your terrace so that you can use it in all weathers, thus saving interior space. What’s more, the glass walls and brightness of the patio enclosure provide a pleasant sense of space.

And seduce customers

With a veranda, you create a new room flooded with light. It adds value to your establishment, as well as charm and conviviality. You benefit from an indoor/outdoor space with panoramic views of the outdoors, all year round. This way, your customers can enjoy a bath of light in summer, the pretty orange colors of autumn, a film of snow in winter and flowers in spring.
