Awning Canopies / July 20, 2019 / Aurora Hess
The best thing about the translucent models is that they are effective in reducing the risk of the blackout. The only limitation about them is they can brittle easily and needs to be replaced timely. In ancient times the wood or natural fiber was used to cover up the structure or canvas. These materials were very inexpensive and easy to accommodate to any facility. With the change in weather conditions and trends the need to opt for the products like durable security shutters and fancy canopies became the requirement. The deck of your house is that area where you renew family bonds over a hearty meal in the natural surroundings. Sometimes the same deck becomes the space where you catch up with friends over a barbecue. The deck serves so many purposes. Sadly due to uncontrollable reasons it falls prey to everyday wear and tear.
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.
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.
