Awning Canopies / September 3, 2019 / Charlene Kane
Whether metal or aluminium vinyl or one of the dozen or so fabric types awnings have acquired a well-deserved niche among the different shades that most of us employ to complement our homes and places of business. Awnings are much more preferable to canopies and tents for instance when the area is against a structure or on the side of a building. This is because of two things: first having an awning is structurally more sound compared to a canopy because it is attached to the wall or a concrete structure; and second it only requires half the framing of a traditional canopy which saves space and eases installation. Fabric awnings in particular are superior to the other types depending on the environmental conditions in their area of use. Generally they are the most versatile type and can handle multiple situations.
You would notice that cafes hotels restaurants and shops have a canopy or an awning installed. They are not just simply for aesthetic beauty or added charm. The reason behind this is business promotion. Canopies and other commercial awnings will usually have the name of the business written on the surface of the awning. Canopies would also have the colour of the business. You will even see company logos or graphics in them. If you want to promote a new product on your store you no longer have to worry about the high cost of advertising in magazines daily papers or television. You can easily have the product promotion printed on your awnings. People will remember seeing not just your attractive commercial awnings but also your business. You can have a greater chance of getting more people into your business.
Keep the entrance uncluttered to let the visitors see they are in an open and spacious eating joint. * Lights can make a huge impact: You can make your restaurant look classy Victorian edgy or modern or even homely with your choice of lights. So choose lamps and light fixtures which will offer your restaurant a definite look and feel. You can also hang beautiful lamps from your ceilings and give the entire area a pleasant feel. Awnings are shades or coverings attached on the outer walls of buildings. They are found over doors windows porches patios decks walkways or garage and generally used in both residential and commercial buildings. Residential awnings are generally used for element protection - sun control rain protection and energy saving. Some more objectives and functionalities are added with commercial awnings.
