Awning Canopies / August 13, 2019 / Dominique Massey
Tests have shown that a good quality awning could lower the temperature on your patio by 20 degrees. If you own a business like a cafe or a pub then you may want to install awnings for walkway coverage or a smoking shelter when the weather is wet and not so great. -There are many types of awnings including; folding arm awnings terrace awnings canopies and walkway coverage electric awnings and you can also use them as signage for your business. They also come in many different shapes sizes and colours so you need to consider where you will be putting your awning on your property. -It is also worth investing your money in a good quality patio awning since not all awnings will stand up to adverse weather conditions.
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.
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.
