Tubbo launches Winter Terraces offering quayside protection

Tubbo's cylindrical shaped covered structures can be adapted for multiple purposes
Winter Terraces is the latest offering from Tubbo, suppliers of transparent, cylindrical shaped structures, suitable as covered space for outside restaurants, events, VIP and smoking areas.

Tubbo with a client list boasting, among others, British Airways, Mercedes-Benz, Barcardi, Heineken and numerous ski resorts, has been targetting the cruise sector for the past three years believing its easy to assemble structures are ideal for placing on berths and in other portside areas, particularly for transit ports, to keep passengers either dry from the elements or shaded from the sunshine when waiting to board or disembarking vessels or for quayside events.

The minimalistic, sleek design makes it adaptable for multiple purpose use and the transparent exterior provides a 360° view of the surrounding landscape.

'There are options to add audio, seating benches, and now with our Winter Terraces, heating to the structure,' Jorge Saura, general manager Tubbo told Seatrade Cruise News in Hamburg last month where Tubbo were exhibiting at Seatrade Europe.

He believes the Winter Terraces in particular would be very practical for shoulder and off-peak operations in ports. 'As more ships start to operate year-round in Europe, the Tubbo structures, particularly the Winter Terraces where you can add heating,  would be a practical way of keeping passengers dry and warm either transitting from the ship to security, terminal or port exit or provide cover for passengers waiting to board vessels following shoreside visits,' he added.

Tubbo structures can be erected within 24 hours and are wind and sound proof.
