The Peninsula Hotel, a prestigious member of the HSH Group, epitomizes luxury and exclusivity. From 2021 to 2023, the hotel undertook an impressive redesign of its outdoor area in front of the Ballroom, a location not only rented for brand presentations but also considered one of the most spectacular places to celebrate weddings.
For this prestigious project, MDT-tex was commissioned to supply six custom-designed sun umbrellas. These tulip umbrellas are embroidered with the finest Turkish ornamentation and made from our top-quality PTFE fabric with a weight of 1000gr. Strategically placed in front of the Ballroom, two 16x16m tulip umbrellas stand on the sides, while in the centre, four 10x10m umbrellas of varying heights ensure maximum sun protection.
A special highlight is the anchoring of the parasols on the pier, making them storm-proof. The operation is mechanical and controlled from a switch cabinet located 100m away, equipped with a custom touch panel and operating software. A unique detail is the CNC-milled stainless-steel parts, giving the tulip umbrellas a maritime look.
The impressive fact that these sun umbrellas weigh up to 16 tons and were delivered in one piece underscores the logistical masterpiece of MDT-tex. A specially rented ship crane was necessary to set up these giants in just two days.
Our official opening and hotel photos will soon be released, showcasing the magnificence of these sun umbrellas.
