Awning Canopies / September 3, 2019 / Dominique Massey
Of course if awnings and other shade structures improve the messaging of a restaurant and are a patron s first impressions canopies very often round out a restaurant-goers final thoughts. While less focuses on literal messaging than on style and atmosphere canopies extend a restaurant s outdoor footprint adding a sense of elegance as indoor amenities are brought outside. Built from a similar selection of material as stated in the previous paragraph canopies can still retain the natural collective body heat from guests (and hot food) with only the most minor of fold-down fabric walls. And as fall weather progresses and the temperatures drop these simple measures can be augmented with propane heaters turning outdoor dining into a year round possibility - even in some of the country s harsher winter climates.
Picture guests relaxing at your hotel or resort on a warm summer day while sipping an ice cold soft drink and cocktail concoction. Factor in the additional luxury of an awning canopy or cabana and the patrons experiences will be pleasantly enhanced. Decadent dreams of covered convenience are just steps away once you know how to properly select an awning canopy or cabana for your facility. Although holiday fanatics across the country are still discovering Christmas tree pine needles hiding behind the couch and nibbling on Valentine s Day candy it is not too early to start preparing for the impending spring/summer vacation season. In fact since the early season often promises little stability in weather conditions and the strong rays of the sun can cause severe sunburn on skin due to the winter chill now more than ever is an advantageous time to install a decorative and purposeful commercial shade structure.
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.
