Hospitality Sector

Symo Parasols is an expert in parasols for the hospitality industry!

Symo Parasols is an expert in professional parasols for the hospitality sector. Since 1932 we have delivered over 1,000,000 parasols in 42 countries.

Our passion is to develop the best possible parasols. We are at the cutting edge of “parasology”, the art and science of making parasols. With surprising, new designs we make the product ever stronger and increasingly beautiful. In Bruges our own workshops cover over 3,000 m2. If you work with Symo Parasols, you deal directly with the manufacturer.

Companies in the hospitality sector make specific demands on their parasols. They have to be strong, not get in the way on the pavement cafés, be easy to open and close, and so on. Many of the properties and advantages have been specially designed to meet these demands. Here are a few examples.

General advantages of our parasol for the hospitality sector 

You won’t have to move any tables and chairs to open or close your parasol. There is no more inconvenience for your guests thanks to the innovative system with the telescopic pole. See the MacSymo giant parasol.

An open parasol can withstand up to wind force 7 Beaufort (61 kph) without any damage.

Your professional parasol will open and close easily and very fast thanks to our specially developed solutions with a pulley, our telescopic system or our crank system.

There is also a choice of a central pole or floating parasol with the pole to the side.

Benefits of the frame

No worries: no complicated technical parts that are fragile. We offer great ease of use but also ease before and after installation.

Advantages of the top-quality Orchestra canopy

The Orchestra canopy offers protection against both the sun and rain. Ideal for the weather in Belgium and the Netherlands. Customers eating outside will no longer leave at the first little shower. They will simply be able to continue to enjoy their meal under the parasol. Our loyal clients say that the MacSymo pays for itself in just 1 season.

The excellent Orchestra fabric has a 10-year warranty for fading. It blocks out 90 to 100 % of the sun’s hazardous UV radiation (100% = total sun block). Choice of 90 different canopy colours.

Different sizes and shapes

One pavement café requires a large professional parasol, another needs smaller ones. Symo parasols offers a very wide range of products, starting from 1.8m going up to a span of 5.6m. We offer both round (octagonal), square and rectangular shapes.


Our company has developed into an expert in professional parasols for the hospitality sector since 1932. We offer free advice either in our showroom in Bruges, or on location on your pavement café.


We help you by professionally measuring, installing, cleaning and repairing your parasols as well as storing them during the winter. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
