Awning Canopies / July 20, 2019 / Claire Raymond
Special events such as weddings and birthdays may also be held in one of these structures. These patios also serve as architectural design to add style to your home s landscape. Yet much as patios provide both comfort and style they need shades and covers. This is where patio awnings are used. Pergolas which are shaded pathways may also be great sources for patio shades. What are Awnings? Patio awnings of course are made specifically for patios. Awnings refer to the actual cover used for these patios. They are often made a canvass of acrylic yarn and at times vinyl. These are laid over wood steel iron metal aluminum and other light materials. Awnings are purposely lightweight to allow sunlight when needed. Unlike permanent roof these coverings may be folded retractable and carried around.
All of these awnings are mass produced to make their prices affordable. It is reported that a two man team manufactures each awning based on the consumer s choice of color size and model. Every awning is pre-tested and pre-operated in the factory before it is shipped. Sunsetter awnings come in various different styles of deck and patio awnings. You may opt to customize different features such as size and fabric color. You can select from two manually operated awnings with vertical support arms that open with a hand-crank their Vista 900XT which is non-motorized version and the 1000XT model the largest and most spacious manually-operated type. Sunsetter awnings are also available in pro motorized models the Sunsetter Motorized and the Motorized XL awnings with two lateral arms that expand directly under the awning canopy.
Of course if awnings and other shade structures improve the messaging of a restaurant and are a patron s first impressions canopies very often round out a restaurant-goers final thoughts. While less focuses on literal messaging than on style and atmosphere canopies extend a restaurant s outdoor footprint adding a sense of elegance as indoor amenities are brought outside. Built from a similar selection of material as stated in the previous paragraph canopies can still retain the natural collective body heat from guests (and hot food) with only the most minor of fold-down fabric walls. And as fall weather progresses and the temperatures drop these simple measures can be augmented with propane heaters turning outdoor dining into a year round possibility - even in some of the country s harsher winter climates.
