Awning Ideas / February 24, 2019 / Dominique Massey
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. But awnings canopies and shade structures are just the beginning as a restaurant s overhaul or seasonal change must be thorough and complete. In other words if a new awning sets a new mood or tone chances are the inside of the restaurant and even its menus will require tweaking too.
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. 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.
So you need to ensure that all traces of the detergent are taken off the awning fabric. It is also important to check the awning thoroughly and ensure that the soap is removed completely. After rinsing the awning you also have to look for signs of dirt. If you identify any dirt the area needs to be scrubbed again. Cleaning Metal Awnings: Many users find it easier to clean the metal awnings in comparison to the fabric awnings. You can use a quality emulsifying detergent to clean the metal awning properly. However the detergent needs to be applied using a pressure washer. Most of the dirt and grime will be removed from the awning by the high-speed spray. After using the pressure washer allow it a few minutes to set. Use the pressure washer again with plain water to rinse the awning thoroughly.
