As a developer of sunshades for terraces and gardens as well as outdoor concepts for hotels and restaurants, the Swiss sunshade manufacturer GLATZ is a pioneer in sun protection.

As a developer of sunshades for terraces and gardens as well as outdoor concepts for hotels and restaurants, the Swiss sunshade manufacturer GLATZ is a pioneer in sun protection. Even today, it is developing ideas for tomorrow – as it has done for more than 100 years. In homes, hotels and restaurants, the trend continues: gardens are becoming a second living room! With its wide range of aluminium and wooden sunshades, available with a centre pole or free arm and in giant sizes, GLATZ offers outstanding comfort – even on cooler days and late into the evening. The entire range is designed for the demanding daily routine of hotels and restaurants as well as garden and terrace lovers and pool owners – different shapes and sizes can be combined to great effect. GLATZ divides all of its sunshade models into the categories Individual (garden sunshades), Professional (giant sunshades in XXL format) and Easy Collection (portable sunshades). As well as providing a clear overview of the GLATZ product range, this enables the traditional company and its authorised distribution partners to focus on all the necessary services in terms of sunshade selection, advice and setup for its customers. Shape and aesthetics combined with individuality – that is what design means to the Swiss sunshade manufacturer: with GLATZ, the customer decides how their sunshade should look. In addition to customised individual production, the company offers a wide range of design models in standard or giant sizes and in circular or square formats. Many GLATZ models are also available as “sunshades to go” - in the Easy Collection of portable sunshades. Budget-conscious consumers and impulse buyers will find everything they need in terms of sun protection and quality – only the selection of colours and materials is limited. The range of GLATZ models is huge. As well as a wide selection of shapes, colours and sunshade types including accessories, GLATZ offers customised outdoor concepts. These include extensive advice and a presentation of selected sunshade types at our distribution partners' showrooms. What's more, customers can take advantage of the home delivery service: the distribution partner will deliver the selected sunshade including accessories to the desired location, set it up, demonstrate how to operate it and explain every detail. Needless to say, the packaging material is taken away, the GLATZ partners respond promptly and efficiently to queries and will quickly deliver spare parts and carry out repairs should the need arise. GLATZ are professionals in sun protection, offering professional shade solutions in the XXL range for large outdoor areas – in particular hotels and restaurants, town planners and large private estates. Many GLATZ distribution partners are authorised to sell the XXL range. They survey the location, work hand in hand with the architects and developers, and make allowance for the architectural style as well as space, wind and soil conditions in their planning. Whatever the setting – futuristic, neo-classical or contemporary architecture, romantic gardens, spacious or awkwardly shaped terraces or stylish pool areas – all of the GLATZ sunshade models are both modern and timeless, blending into their surroundings like a chameleon and contributing discreetly to the outdoor ambience. As well as UV protection in the shade, they also protect against the rain, wind and cold. All of them are easy to operate, while some models can be equipped with light fittings, heaters, motors and radio installations if desired. GLATZ makes life a little brighter with its eye-catching outdoor sunshades. Encompassing loud, subtle, cool and warm shades, the colour palette for sunshade covers is extensive. Choose from 90 colours in various material classes, divided into five colour categories. The traditional Swiss company distributes its products almost worldwide via a network of resellers and importers, offering a comprehensive service for all sunshade models to put any garden, pool and large outdoor area in the shade. Whatever the location – Bern, Berlin, Zurich, Majorca, Miami, Rome, St. Moritz or the Côte d'Azur – authorised and certified GLATZ partners assess the outdoor area on site and outline individual concepts in terms of models, fittings, colour, shape, size, location, available space, transport, installation, theft protection, accessories and operation. As a family company with more than a hundred years of history spanning four generations, we put our heart, soul and know-how into designing and manufacturing sunshades. Maximum functionality, sophisticated design and individuality are the hallmarks of our sunshade models – and crucial to our success. “Made by GLATZ” stands for a love of detail and a long life span. High-quality production technology in line with international standards coupled with constant quality controls for sunshade manufacturing guarantee the best Swiss quality from GLATZ.
