Sun Shades by Glatz – Shaped by Experience and Sustained by Vision

“Keep your finger on the pulse and be ahead of your time!” – The philosophy of the Swiss sunshade producer Glatz is almost 120 years old and still relevant. The words come from Albert Glatz, a trained umbrella maker, who founded his own umbrella shop in 1895. Four generations later, the Glatz AG has been established as a leading supplier of sunshades and outdoor concepts for homes, gardens, hotels and restaurants in Europe and around the world. The spoga+gafa is glad to welcome them again in the garden unique area of the fair this year.

The New Sombrano S+

This free-arm sunshade is a 360° shade provider and has been subtly redesigned for a new look. SOMBRANO® S+ stands for elegance and sophisticated functions, including a crank mechanism for convenient adjustments. The sunshade roof can also be tilted 54° and rotated 360°. Thanks to its dimensions and look, the SOMBRANO® S+ is fitted for larger outdoor areas.

The New Piazzino              

Not all woods are the same: the PIAZZINO offers a winning combination of functionality, high technology and low cost. From 2014, the PIAZZINO will sport a new look with bright, natural maple wood – further enhancing the natural charm of the sunshade roof. What’s more, the robust maple wood will ensure a long life, propelling the PIAZZINO into the league of timeless style for budget-conscious consumers.       


Not too big and not too small, the FORTELLO® is ideal for hotels and restaurants: thanks to its counter-rotating servo opening principle it is easy to handle, can be conveniently transported with its separable pole and light weight and can be cleared away in a flash. Thanks to its stable construction, the FORTELLO® can withstand wind speeds of up to 70 km/h and can be fitted with an OSYRION® light on request. This new model by GLATZ not only provides optimum protection from the sun and rain, it also offers one thing above all: an ideal space for coloured advertising logos and lettering.

You can find Glatz at the spoga+gafa 2014 in hall 10.2, stand L011 M010.
