Roman Vindolanda Fort & Museum Café in Northumberland Add Umbrella Canopy

A&S Landscape installed a large fabric umbrella canopy for the café at the Roman Vindolanda Fort & Museum. This was part of a series of works made to further improve the outdoor seating area.

Project Specification

  • Product: Maxima Umbrella™
  • Size: 6000mm X 6000mm
  • Steelwork:
    • Slate Grey - RAL NO. 7015

  • Fabric:
    • Porcelain Green

A Maxima Umbrella was added outside of the café, on the new decking area. Measuring 6m X 6m, there is plenty of room for several tables to sit underneath the cover. The Slate Grey steelwork and Porcelain Green roof give the canopy a stylish and subtle look. Made with a waterproof material, the umbrella can be used during the wetter months too.

The customers of Roman Vindolanda Fort & Museum can enjoy their refreshments outside on the decking area, in the fresh air. The canopy will keep the visitors cool and comfortable in the sun, and dry in the rain. Now when the Great British Weather can’t make up its mind, the customers can continue relaxing outside.

“There were no problems at all, we’re really happy with A&S Landscape’s work.”

Installing a shelter is a great cost-effective way of increasing the seating capacity of a café, bar or restaurant. There are many options and extras you can also consider, including adding a heater to the post of the umbrella for cooler seasons.
