Key Partners

AEL is proud to be the sole UK partner for Glatz in the UK since 2008.

Glatz combine innovation, experience and Swiss technology to produce a range of unparalleled commercial umbrellas.

Why Glatz?

Giant commercial umbrellas for cafes, bars, hotels and restaurants are manufactured in Switzerland by Glatz. Offering top quality, precision engineering and UV protection, giant umbrellas are a durable, attractive addition to any outdoor hospitality environment.

Branding & Personalisation

Design your own look, with branding and printing available on valances and membranes to display corporate colours, logos and strap lines to reflect your brand’s unique identity.

Highest Service Levels

Our vast experience in specifying, visualising and installing Glatz umbrellas gives us knowledge that is second to none. We have fully trained sales and service teams, while all parts are fully replaceable.

Huge Range & Choice

Available in round, square or rectangular form in various sizes, with 73 colours to choose from across Class 2, Class 4 and optimum Class 5 fabric range.

Protection Against Sun, Wind & Rain

Umbrella membranes filter harmful UV rays with a UPF 50+ rating, keeping you safe in the sun as well as shaded. They remain stable in high winds with specific PALAZZO® STYLE models resistant up to 115 km/h depending on size with the correct base fitting.

Product Innovation & Quality

The anti-twist, reinforced centre pole is made from stamped, naturally anodised aluminium. Unique extension rods and spring loaded arms maintain canopy tension at all times, adding extra strength and durability. Many models feature a counter rotating telescopic principle for quick opening and closing, taking the hard work out of raising and closing.

Drive Customer Revenue

Glatz umbrellas allow an outdoor trading area to be used all year round. They are weather flexible, offering shade from the sun, protection from the rain and our range of lighting and heating options allow customers to enjoy alfresco dining well on into the evening.
