Glatz Logo

Glatz AG was created in 1895 and has been creating umbrellas for over 100 years. Located in Frauenfeld in Switzerland, Glatz offer a large range of umbrellas for the home and commercial use.

Umbrellas and Parasols are a necessity in Dubai and the UAE where the summer months can be scorchingly hot; proper shading is vital if you want to enjoy the outdoors. At The Warehouse, we offer three types of outdoor umbrellas for our customers. These consist of centre pole, hanging (cantilever) and giant. We are a distributor of Glatz AG stocking a range of their popular parasols.

Types of Umbrellas

They can be fitted with a range of different colours and canopy styles. We offer canopies in beige (standard) as well many other colours. See a selection below for our colour range.
