Awning Canopies / September 11, 2019 / Nora Parker
But their aesthetic value is equally key. Retractable or fixed and made from a variety of materials namely aluminum fabric mesh and combinations of the three awnings can immediately set the mood via their shape and logos. Imagine you re an upscale classy Jazz/live entertainment restaurant where music is as important as food. In that case an awning that includes the graphic of a jazz ensemble or horned instruments and large musical notes might be the way to go. If going for a more subtle approach a shade structure patterned in the shape of red bricks might match an actual brick (or stone) exterior. Remember that little changes such as these can go a long way toward an entire revamp of your restaurant and its ambiance.
The second reason for canopies is protection against the weather elements. In restaurant patios or cafe outdoor areas a folding arm awning is very popular. You would not want to have a meal in a restaurant patio while you are baking under the sun would you? Having your cold drink outside a cafe is never ideal if you are directly under the sun with no shade. When the rainy season starts getting drenched while having a meal in the restaurant patio or a hot drink outside the cafe is not a pleasing experience. Customers will look for comfort and with canopies you can provide them with just exactly what they are looking for. Another advantage of canopies and other commercial awnings is great savings on cooling costs especially during the hot days of the summer season.
Furthermore domestic travel is expected to be on the rise so vacationers can enjoy the feel of a tropical island without going abroad. In order to succeed at selecting an appropriate canopy awning or cabana an experienced supplier registered with the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA) is a necessity. Checking references will ease your mind. Choose a company that also provides maintenance services to promise the longevity of the product. Be sure to clear maintenance and warranty issues before construction begins. Both structure and form are vital here as a beautiful design as well as a sturdy and reliable one is essential. Hiring a reputable and experienced company provides the security that your vision combined with professional advice and architecture will be properly executed.
