About Pantel
Since its conception, we at Surfside Concepts and Pantel Corp. have had a dream. That vision is to create and provide a total outdoor environment with entertainment, beauty, and convenience in mind. Surfside Concepts and Panel Corp. focus on two key product areas: weatherproof, high -definition televisions and synthetic landscaping. The two combine to create a beautiful, relaxing outdoor environment that is stress - and maintenance -free. We noticed a specific need for the outdoor television, which would enhance the lives of consumers and open a new world of marketing and convenience for corporations. Such products could be used at sports fields, restaurants, back yards, golf courses, amusement parks, and wherever entertainment, advertisement, and demonstrations would be hosted outdoors. Being entrepreneurs and seeing a niche business opportunity, we seized this dream. We watched this vision become a reality by producing the Pantel Weatherproof HDTV, one of the two key products produced by Surfside Concepts and Pantel Corp., the leader in artificial landscapes and outdoor entertainment!
