Awning Canopies / August 29, 2019 / Charlene Kane
Customized commercial sunshades are used for branding. The theme of the business logo and images of the products are highlighted through the awning. Hotels restaurants bookstores shopping malls and almost all types of stores take advantage of commercial awning. Canopy-like shades are often used at the main entrance of business houses. Some of the shops attach awnings over their showcases. These shades protect passersby from sun and rain. It has been also noticed that while escaping rain people often take interest in the products displayed in the windows and sometimes make a deal too! Shop-owners often customize the canopies to focus their newly launched products or special discounts. Being noticeable easily the message printed on the awning and canopies reach to a huge number of audiences without any effort.
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.
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.
