Solus Decor exhibit at The Independent Hotel Show in London

Last week Solus Decor exhibited at The Independent Hotel Show in London and had the opportunity to discuss all things hotels with hoteliers from around the country and further afield.

 

Our fire and water features are used around the world by hotels in a variety of locations; a Caribbean luxury beach resort, a boutique ski Lodge in the mountains of Wyoming, a hip roof top bar in Portland Oregon through to a luxury resort in the champagne region of France. These hotels are all completely different in style and setting but there is one common thread that runs through them all hotels. All these hotels and any hotel around the world is looking to make the most of all their space, particularly outdoor space to ensure they have a profitable business throughout the year.

Hotels, restaurants and bars all want to make the most of their outdoor space and run at full capacity all year, however for many the garden or rooftop becomes a forgotten area when the summer is over. With our fire pits this is no longer the case, when the weather starts to cool at the end of the summer these outdoor areas or outdoor venues continue to be a warm and inviting space for guests to enjoy a cocktail or maybe mulled wine as we approach the festive season!

Top questions from hoteliers at The Independent Hotel Show

What is the durability and longevity of a fire pit or water feature?

All Solus products are made from high performance concrete and are designed to withstand both extreme cold and heat that is not unusual for the Canadian climate where all our products are designed and made in our workshop in Vancouver. We have the best warranties in the business! We have been working with commercial designers for 20 years and know how important this is for any commercial project and our burners have a 25 year warranty. Click here for full details

Flexibility?

Our range of fire and water products are flexible and easy to use. Our water features are self circulating, requiring no water supply, simply plug and play! Our fire pits come with three different fuel options; bio ethanol, LPG gas and natural with the option of manual or electronic ignition. In addition to this unlike many gas fire pits our burners are designed so they can sit on any outdoor surface; grass, decking or stone, making them compatible with any style of outdoor space.

Health and Safety

Naturally in a commercial space the question of health and safety is a question. As with any gas appliance this should be installed by a registered gas engineer if you opt for the LPG or natural gas fuel option. Unlike wood burning fire pits a gas fire pit can be controlled and there is no danger of hot ash or uncontrolled smoke harming guests. We also have the option of a glass screen to surround the flame as an additional safeguard as shown here at The Hotel Eastlund in Portland.
