StarShades and the MegaSol – Our Move into Temporary Structures

August 20th, 2014 by

Two StarShades at Download Festival

Without compromising our modesty we are aware that we have become fairly well known within the industry for the hire of temporary roadways and walkways. These products are manufactured from recycled and recyclable material which often helps an event organiser to compete their own environmental audit.
However, over the past couple of years, we have been steadily building up our temporary structures portfolio, with the purchase of the unique MegaSol along with a fleet of single and double Star Shades.
The MegaSol is promoted as the ‘largest mobile parasol in world’ – a boast that has been lived up to throughout it’s time in our fleet. The MegaSol comes in two sizes; either a 12-metre or 17-metre diameter with an anti-slip flooring and ramps for wheelchair users. It provides sufficient cover of up to 250 individuals. The MegaSol has become popular at a variety of shows and festivals including, the annual folk jamboree – Towersey and the popular Cambridge Rock Festival. The MegaSol always takes centre stage at the Showman’s Show, rendering cover for our guests in the often unpredictable weather during the October show. The huge Christian festival, the Big Church Day Out, has the MegaSol each year to act as a meeting place for fellow worshippers.
We decided that the Star Shade products, which operate to a similar style to their MegaSol, would be ideally suited to set alongside our existing range. Over just a short period of time, we are now in a position to offer both single and double Star Shades for hire, just about anywhere in the UK, with a full installation and delivery service. Indeed, the massive Download Festival at Castle Donington had several Star Shades this year and likewise, our Star Shades will be at Knebworth and Silverstone.
With our different styles of temporary flooring and the popular Foldtable event seating, we can now offer some cost-effective package deals to hire a selection of our products. It has been a good move in a slightly different direction for us, but as our position in the events markets continue to strengthen, we have every intention to continue to innovate and bring more new products into our portfolio.
