Awning Canopies / August 9, 2019 / Nora Parker
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.
The laminated fabrics are 100% water proof fade resistant and made of heavy duty 5 layer fabric materials with special protective coating. The coating enables it to withstand the damaging UV rays. They also come in 5 unique stripe combinations and 7 solid colors of your choice. Added characteristics of the fabrics are mildew resistant and flame resistant. They are also easy to clean and very low in maintenance cost. The frame support can be mounted directly using wall or soffit brackets. You will appreciate the quality of the awning hardware which is made from durable and lightweight aluminum materials. One popular awning model is their Oasis freestanding retractable awning. It can be placed on any flat and level surface like your lawn pool patio or deck.
Allocating funds to an awning canopy or cabana design project is a venture that will reap what it sows. In addition to providing current customers with an additional sun-shading feature cabanas canopies and awnings add attractive and eye-catching features to the property. These appealing structures offer an emotional and mental retreat for souls weary from the day-to-day shuffle and physical splendor for eyes tired of the same old neutral colored building. The numbers speak for themselves: Even in this time when popular opinion holds that vacations are on the decline the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported a 3.2 percent increase in travel and tourism spending during the second quarter of 2011 so hopefully the trend holds firm for the second quarter of 2012.
