Solus Decor launch new products at HPB Expo in Dallas Texas; an exciting addition to the Solus Decor range.

 

About HPB Expo

The Solus team headed to Dallas, Texas last month to be part of the HPB Expo and launch some exciting new fire and water products at the largest indoor outdoor living event. HPBExpo is owned and produced by the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA), which represents, and provides professional member services and industry support, for manufacturers, retailers, distributors, representatives, service firms, and allied associates for all types of fireplace, stove, heater, barbecue and outdoor living appliances and accessories. The HPBA is the one stop shop for any outdoor living product.

 

New product: Fire Table

Over the last year the team have mean working hard on new designs.  The result of this hard works is a new take on our existing fire table. The new table has a larger area for you to make the most of the table element of the design whilst still retaining the heat element of the product.  The social element of the fire pit has encouraged this design. The desire for outdoor entertaining and living spaces continues to grow.

To create this design we have incorporated a man made composite, which is traditionally used as exterior cladding to form the table top.  Yes we have added a new material to our traditional concrete products but we have stayed true to the Solus design principles.  The fire table is sleek, simple and functional in its design. It’s built to withstand the outdoor elements in both commercial and residential settings. These key design elements run throughout the Solus product range.

 

 

The new fire table takes on en element of the European glamour traditionally synonymous with french and Italian design.

Get in contact with the sales team to find out more about the new fire table and our other fire and water products.
