Awning Canopies / July 23, 2019 / Latasha Garrison
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.
A roof like structure can be less expensive than building a porch by attaching a retractable awning canopy over the patio area with little maintenance. The patio location should allow easy access to and from the indoor kitchen areas so the flow of people between is natural and direct without walking through another room or space. The flow of traffic will depend on the exact attachment and coverage of the patio retractable awning and the proximity between the patio and house. Access to the kitchen and location of the exterior doors will help in determining the preferred placement of the patio and attachment of the retractable awning. The awning comes in several standard sizes and numerous patterns and colors. The canopy material is water resistant and blocks the sun UV rays and lasts for years if properly maintained.
All of these awnings are mass produced to make their prices affordable. It is reported that a two man team manufactures each awning based on the consumer s choice of color size and model. Every awning is pre-tested and pre-operated in the factory before it is shipped. Sunsetter awnings come in various different styles of deck and patio awnings. You may opt to customize different features such as size and fabric color. You can select from two manually operated awnings with vertical support arms that open with a hand-crank their Vista 900XT which is non-motorized version and the 1000XT model the largest and most spacious manually-operated type. Sunsetter awnings are also available in pro motorized models the Sunsetter Motorized and the Motorized XL awnings with two lateral arms that expand directly under the awning canopy.
