Set foot on the beautiful islands of Fiji and you will not have to travel far to locate some of Shade7’s outdoor umbrella. This New Zealand company have been supplying their umbrellas throughout Fiji and the Pacific Islands for several years. The Sheraton brand have three resorts in Fiji, all of which are home to Shade7’s umbrellas.
The Sheraton Denarau Villas are a 5-star resort that feature two and three bedroom villas specifically designed for larger groups. With your own private terrace, fully equipped kitchen, six swimming pools, restaurants, spa, kids program and more, there is space to relax and much to do. With six swimming pool areas requiring shade for their guests, Sheraton Denarau Villas were in search of a new supplier for some good quality umbrellas that weren’t prone to breaking. In discussion with Shade7, they suggested the Sheraton try their Monaco centre post outdoor umbrella, which was designed and engineered by Shade7 themselves.
The Monaco centre post umbrella was designed with commercial strength in mind. It has a robust 50mm thick anodised aluminium centre pole with stainless steel fixings and components. The materials have all been selected with rain and ocean spray factored into consideration, so Shade7 have chosen materials that will not rust. In order to ensure longevity, the fabric canopy has the highest UPF-80 rating available, plus the best available colour fastness rating of 7-8 out of 8. These materials are supported by a 3 year commercial warranty on the frame and a 5 year warranty against colour fading and rot of the fabric.
The Sheraton chose the 3m Octagonal Monaco in a classic Ecru coloured fabric. This particular umbrella is wind rated up to 70 kph, making it ideal for this coastal environment prone to winds. Combining the factors of strength in the wind, rust free materials and resilient fabrics, the Monaco umbrella is the ideal candidate for coastal locations such as on Denarau Island.
Shade7 are thrilled to report that the Sheraton have been very happy with their new Monaco outdoor umbrellas from New Zealand and are now continuing in stages to upgrade all of their pool areas to the Monaco centre post umbrella.
As well as the Sheraton Denarau Villas, Shade7 have also previously supplied their large Tempest commercial umbrella to Sheraton Tokoriki, based on one of the tropical islands in the Mamanuca group of Fiji. The Sheraton Fiji Resort on Denarau Island is also home to their Fibreglass umbrellas.
Shade7 also continue to be involved in a number of other exciting projects in Fiji including the new Malamala Beach Club, the worlds first island beach club.
