Most bars and restaurants are going to find it difficult to reopen cost-efficiently under the new regulations or to trade in a sustainable way because pubs and restaurants promote a social environment and customers are normally seated at tables close to each other.
But when seating indoors is allowed tables will have to be spaced well apart, leading to reduced customer numbers and turning the social aspect of it on its head, so extra space will need to be provided outdoors.
And for an initial period – possibly for an extended time – customers may be fearful of being seated within premises where people are congregating so outdoor seating is obviously an ideal option – plus consensus has been reached that being outdoors reduces the risk of infection.
By providing your patrons with a warm comfortable outdoor experience they’ll relish the opportunity to be able to socialise and relax again with their family and friends in a safer environment when evenings morph into nights or as the licensed trade faces into the Autumn or following Spring.
The new patented Outdoor Table Heater from CaterSave Solutions was designed and developed for outdoor bars, beer gardens, hotels, restaurants, cafes and smoking zones.
It uses Infrared Eco Table Heaters that heat the customers themselves, not the air.
Because these are fitted to the under-side of the table-top, soothing heat radiates to the customers legs and up throughout their body, keeping them comfortably warm. Motion-sensors are fitted to automatically operate the heaters when customers take their seats and switch them off again when table is vacated. Huge savings can thus be made thanks to its low consumption – 0.4 kW /hour or 0.8c/hour when the tables are occupied, claims AirOPol, the heater’s distributor here.
Furthermore five tables can be linked together via input and output connections from one electrical socket and the heater has multiple Safety Certification Marks: CE, IP, GS, DEKRA and EMC.
“The heaters expand your space, providing extra seating, to allow customers to be seated in an safer outdoor environment,” says AirOPol’s John O’Callaghan, “So you can extend your outdoor season as patrons can enjoy the outdoor experience in the cool Summer evenings or in the Spring or late Autumn.
“We currently only have limited stock as most countries are also reopening their hospitality sectors and demand for these Table Heaters is at an all-time high. We hope to have more stock in August, but prices will have increased by then,” he predicts.
Heaters are currently only €295 with a volume order. Table-tops are not included but can be supplied if required should one be unable to fit heaters to the present tables.
