Awning Canopies / August 17, 2019 / Susanne Dejesus
But their aesthetic value is equally key. Retractable or fixed and made from a variety of materials namely aluminum fabric mesh and combinations of the three awnings can immediately set the mood via their shape and logos. 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.
Ask them which brands are great to consider and which ones to stay away from. Also make sure that you take the time to check all the different shops to compare prices. Just because something is on sale doesn t mean that it s the best product out there. There might be a slightly more expensive brand but is significantly packed with more features - go for that one. You may have to shell out a little extra cash but you re getting more than your money s worth in terms of features. Finally measure the size of the space you will be needing shade for. This will determine the overall size of the product you need which you need to have along with you when you scour for the canopy. Whether you re considering adding an awning to a poolside hotel patio or a series of cabanas to a beachside resort selecting the right company and following certain procedures will guarantee the success of your new awning canopy or cabana design purchase and/or installation.
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.
