Awning Canopies / August 13, 2019 / Dominique Massey
Allocating funds to an awning canopy or cabana design project is a venture that will reap what it sows. In addition to providing current customers with an additional sun-shading feature cabanas canopies and awnings add attractive and eye-catching features to the property. These appealing structures offer an emotional and mental retreat for souls weary from the day-to-day shuffle and physical splendor for eyes tired of the same old neutral colored building. The numbers speak for themselves: Even in this time when popular opinion holds that vacations are on the decline the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported a 3.2 percent increase in travel and tourism spending during the second quarter of 2011 so hopefully the trend holds firm for the second quarter of 2012.
Fixed or permanent awning canopies or umbrellas keep the places cool and fresh. Drop curtains aluminum sunshades are generally used for windows or doors. Canopies are often used at main entrance open corridors walkways and parking lot; whereas umbrellas are mostly used at backyard cafe rooftop garden and other similar places. Retractable sunshades are also seen in commercial houses. Power Saver: The main sources of heat that increase the temperature of indoor environment are doors and windows. Placing retractable shades over windows and doors help you keep the room temperature low and reduce the load on the cooler. Consequently you save a considerable amount of money on power bills. Power consumes the lion portion of business expenses these days. By installing commercial awnings you can lower your overheads forever.
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.
