Project Ec: Bistro L’Echiquier enhances the outdoor dining experience with the B35 retractable awning

Do you run a café or restaurant? Are you looking for the best way to offer a next-level outdoor dining experience? In Knokke-Heist, Bistro L’Echiquier discovered the perfect solution – a Brustor B35 awning and ZIP screen.

Brustor’s sun protection solutions are tailor-made for your hospitality business. L’Echiquier, a trendy bistro in Knokke-Heist, was looking for a retractable awning that would match the location’s vibe. The B35 was just what it was looking for.

A unique range of articulated arms

The B35 retractable awning? There’s no doubt that it’s the perfect awning for hospitality applications. That’s due in part to the screen’s robust articulated arms. The B35 is available in our elite and prestige solutions.

When selecting a retractable awning, no other part is as crucial to your decision as this one. The arms support the canvas, retract, and extend it; they even provide lighting. Brustor offers a unique range of three articulated arm types. And that selection translates into benefits for areas like the coast, where the wind occasionally has a will of its own. High wind can equal big-time, every application calls for the right articulated arm.

Black housing (RAL 9005) and black sun protection fabric – those choices won out to ensure that the screen reflected L’Echiquier’s contemporary interior design. And shielding the indoors from wayward sunbeams, the ZIP screen was also selected in a tasteful black.

The mix of black B35 awning and ZIP screen add a stylish flourish while creating plenty of shade for outdoor dining, plus a pleasant indoor climate for guests. What more could a restaurant owner want?
