Shademakers has just installed a number of white Sirocco parasols at the Spinnaker Tower’s “Tower Cafe/Bar”. The tower, which now forms the centrepiece of the redevelopment of Portsmouth Harbour, has proved a huge success in recent years despite its troubled beginnings with many delays and cost over runs. Intended to be open for the millenium, construction actually started in 2001 and opened in October 2005. Today the tower offers spectacular views of Portsmouth and the Solent. The “Tower Cafe/Bar” sits at the foot of the tower and the new Siroccos can be found providing shade to the tables and chairs on the veranda running around the quay.
The white centre post parasols provide compact shade solutions, perfect for this space. The Sirocco features a telescopic mast that allows the canopy to be retracted without affecting any tables and chairs below it. Aluminium and stainless steel mast and parts as well as features such as a laser welded top hat will ensure these parasols stand the test of time as well as anything the weather from the nearby Solent may through at it.
