Take a look at some the projects we have undertaken.

Borough Market

Borough Market on Southwark Street is London’s most renowned food market; a source of exceptional British and International produce. Part of the iconic Market, the historic Three Crown Square, had been closed for three and a half years while a new viaduct was built and the market refurbished.

Silver Crescent

As you will see from the picture the customer has made the most of the London skyline. Zapp installed a long line of Eva retractable not systems & AGS screens to ensure that they could use this outdoor space all year round.


The Chippenham restaurant had a full refit both inside and out, Zapp installed 3 large Vortex Umbrellas, branded with the McDonalds logo. The brand new alfresco dining area was enclosed with our new LED illuminated glass screens. These really do raise brand awareness, and the McDonalds logo looks stunning, especially when lit up at night.

Castello Umbrella

We were asked by The Courtyard Café to supply a 4m x 5m Castello umbrella with 2 colour printing to the front of the canopy. We worked with the customer to design and make a mounting…

RS Plus Umbrellas

We were contacted by Bristol City Council to supply 36 RS Plus half umbrellas in 2.5m x 2.5m & 3 umbrellas in 3m x 3m. They asked for 3 different colours Burgundy, Blue and Green.

Harbour Hotel

Working in this stunning location, the installation of 2 Smooth Nova retractable roof systems totalling 24m width by 9m projection. The customer wanted to obtain all year round usage, especially when competing with the typical British weather. Protection from the rain or as currently the UK is experiencing a heatwave shade from the sun.


Installing 2 Eva retractable roof systems along with crystalline clear drop down awnings has created an outdoor space that will be well used and extremely functional all year round. Operation for both the roof systems and the awnings is simply a push button operation and will allow the space to be used in all weather conditions

Castello Umbrellas & Awning

Design Front commissioned Zapp to provide 3 Castello giant umbrellas (4m x 4m) and a 3m Arezzo awning to both shelter customers and provide visual depth to the Raven café kiosk at the Tower of London.

Elegant Umbrellas

Zapp were approached by Montagu’s to provide a shading solution for their outside terrace area. We installed 2 Elegant umbrellas outside of the café bar, each Elegant umbrella is 2.5m x 2.5m with granite bases each weighing 55kg.

Watergate Bay

Zapp were approached by Watergate Bay Hotel to find a design which allowed The Beach Hut to better utilise the existing outdoor decking area. We installed a Radian 7.5 x 4m retractable roof. This unit is attached from the facia of the restaurant covering their terrace area and has AGS height adjustable glass screens integrated to provide complete protection.
