Avolon Outdoors provided 2 manual operated Awnings, Café barriers and – Terrace screens – all with branding. Also installation of 6 No electric Wall Heaters with Timers.

This particular client has been a loyal customer of Avolon for well over ten years now, with a number of major projects completed down through the years, including a Retractable Roof added to the Forge Restaurant.

On this occasion, the client approached Avolon looking to both freshen up the look at the front of the bar and restaurant, as well as make full use of their outside area, leaving it both welcoming and comfortable for their customers to avail of al-fresco dinning and socialising.

We then decided on what products were best to use.  As Basil Shiels is on the road side, certain regulations had to be adhered to.  We went with 2 No electric Fold-Arm Awnings. One above the Forge Restaurant at 4 metres wide x 3.5 metres projection and the second is situated directly outside the bar area, measuring 8.5 metres wide x 3.5 metres in projection. Both awnings covers and valance’s had the Forge Restaurant & Basil Shiels Bar & Lounge branding.

In order to encase the area, we went with 21 metres worth of Café Barriers, which were installed with in-ground sockets, allowing them to be removed when needed. The café barriers also had full branding.  For added protection from the wind, we decided to add in free-standing Terrace screens, with solid bottoms for branding and a tempered safety glass at the top.  Finally we completed the job the with electric wall heaters for added comfort, meaning the area can be used all year round.

One month on from the project was completed and Proprietor Mark Fegan had this to say:

“We have been working with Avolon now for nearly over 10 years on different projects, and their quality of work has always been excellent, along with a first-class service. On this particular job, we noticed straight away, not only were we attracting new custom, but the new alfresco area is constantly in use, adding 10 extra covers to our restaurant”.
