Awning Ideas / February 24, 2019 / Jackie Miranda
Once the internal brainstorming is complete it s time to send in the reserves: the services of a top-notch signage company that can deliver the message in an effective and yet subtle manner. Innovative outdoor signs and awnings are essentially an extension of your traditional marketing and branding campaign. Think about it this way: a recent survey by the University of Cincinnati reveals that next to television customers find traditional signs and awnings the most affective means of advertising and that half of American shoppers would like to see larger signs - especially when driving. What s more two-thirds of respondents ages 18-24 said they had even driven past a store whose sign or awning they failed to read or worse yet find.
They come with a 5 year warranty and SunSetter retractable awnings are one of the more popular brands often seen on television advertising. One of their newest products is the free-standing SunSetter Oasis for an additional outside shaded area that is further from your home such as a swimming pool or picnic garden area. Sunair Awnings is a leading manufacturer of extraordinary deck and patio awnings solar screens canopies and window awnings and their products come in non-motorized but you can easily convert them to motorized retractable awnings with the addition of a SOMFY motor and they have sensors that can extend or retract the awning when sunny or protect it from damaging winds with a motion control sensor.
Many people that buy a motorized retractable awning want it because they can expand their outdoor living space with the touch of a button and many people put them over their windows for shade control and energy savings. Because the awning is retractable through a motorized unit it can easily be let out or put away with the touch of a button by a single person instead of several people working in coordination to manually open and close a non-motorized retractable awning over their patio. Of course some people love a motorized retractable awning because they don t want to permanently attach a non-retractable sun faded canvas awning that detracts from their home s exterior. The newer brands of motorized retractable awnings use strong waterproof woven acrylic that doesn t fade.
