Glatz for retail by AEL Solutions

GLATZ puts its heart, soul, and know-how into designing and manufacturing sunshades. It is not surprising that GLATZ AG has a 120-year company history and is one of the leading sunshade manufacturers in Europe and throughout the world. GLATZ has always been conscious of its role as a pioneer and is still as innovative now as it ever was. Now in its fourth generation, the company is led by CEO Markus GLATZ and has made a name for itself with sunshades and outdoor concepts for homes, gardens, hotels, and restaurants – far beyond the borders of Switzerland.


Shade in Swiss quality

High performance precision engineered products. GLATZ centre pole and cantilever parasols offer a step-up in quality compared to other brands and provide a host of safety and product features, along with a huge choice of styles, sizes, colours, lighting and protective accessories. More and more retailers and consumers are choosing GLATZ; here is why:


•             Swiss design, built from high quality precision engineered materials that stand the test of time.

•             The fabric you choose adds a touch of class to a parasol. Our range of high quality fabrics and spectrum of colours can complement the architecture of your home and the design of your garden and surroundings.

•             Glatz parasols filter harmful UV rays with a UPF 50+ rating, keeping you safe in the sun.

•             Class 4 fabrics and above are treated with Teflon™ and Scotchgard™ for water repellence and dirt resistance.

•             Unique extension rods and spring loaded arms to maintain canopy tension over time.

•             No stretching or straining with smooth and effortless hand crank and twist mechanism to open and close, taking the hard work out of operating your parasol.

•             Easy to operate features such as stepless height adjustment (ALU-SMART), gradual tilt (ALU-TWIST) and multiple tilt angle choices (SUNWING C+ and SOMBRANO S+).

•             Lightweight aluminium frame and pole making them easy to manoeuvre while remaining strong and rust free.

•             Glatz offers a variety of accessories and replacement parts to complement each parasol, from LED lights and protective covers to movable bases.
