Awning Canopies / August 25, 2019 / Katelyn Mooney
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.
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.
For one thing awnings and commercial shade structures are all about making a first impression. Remember that long before a restaurant patron has taken their first bite of bread or sipped their first cocktail they ve already surveyed the exterior of the building. Does your restaurant fit the neighborhood? Does it stand out in a productive and meaningful manner? And is the restaurant s signage appropriate for the space? Failure to pass these basic tests may mean a loss of business - something no restaurant owner wants to see happen. Awnings and canopies are ideal ways to invite a positive dining experience. Awnings are both functional and promotional items. On one hand they protect patrons from the elements providing a measure of wind shield shade during sultry summer evenings and of course protection from rain and even snow.
