Strong Parasols for Professionals

The favourite, heavy duty and professional parasols for the hospitality industry worldwide

The best catering parasols help you to run your business profitably.

You can count on them every day because they are incredibly strong.

They attract extra people to your terrace because they are beautiful and real eye-catchers.

They are a valuable investment that pays off and brings in money.

You save a lot of time because they open and close easily and quickly.

Symo Parasols is the leading manufacturer of professional umbrellas for the hospitality industry in the Benelux and is leading throughout Europe.

Catering entrepreneurs know Symo Parasols as strong, professional parasols.

What does that mean, a strong parasol?

For us it means:

  • Staying afloat in strong winds (storm proof). Symo gives a wind guarantee on paper.
  • They will last for years and can take a beating.
  • The fabric does not discolour in the sun (Symo gives a 10-year warranty, no one does better).
  • Symo uses the sturdiest materials: stainless steel, metal connections, extra reinforcements and much more.

Our customers testify

Eamon Carroll – King William IV

Quality product and good after sales

Frank Beattie – Furey’s Bar

Excellent quality and service

Philippe Caussin – Hotel Casa Aba, Costa Rica

30 YEARS AGO, I bought blue-white and green-white parasols for my company Caussin sprl from Namur (Belgium). I left Belgium with these parasols. I still use them in Costa Rica, where I built a hotel by the sea. The parasols are always spotlessly clean and can withstand high temperatures in summer and heavy rain in winter.


The service is excellent, the product as well

How do you choose the best parasol for your catering business?

winter service

In order to make the right choice, it is best to ask yourself the following questions:

  1. How big is my terrace?
  2. Do I want to cover my terrace completely or not?
  3. Am I mainly looking for protection from the sun? Or also against the rain?
  4. Do I want fast delivery from stock, or would I rather wait a little longer for the right parasol?
  5. Is there a municipal regulation that I need to take into account?
  6. Do I want to be able to move my parasols easily?
  7. Is there a lot of wind on my terrace?

And there are many other important issues to think about. Our ceo, Pierre Christiaens, has even written a full book about this:
