Awning Canopies / August 17, 2019 / Susanne Dejesus
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.
Down below are the few types of fabric or materials being used to demonstrate creativity with ecstasy. Acrylic These fabrics are suitable when durability is the key. They can repel the water from the surface during the rainy days. Cotton-polyester material coated with acrylic can give stronghold to the canvas and will prevent the entire structure from sun damage as well. In short being heavy and opaque they are perfect for the protection from the humidity mild dew and harmful UV rays. Vinyl Vinyl coated fabrics are the great material choice for awning canopies if the backlight and illumination around the premise is the need. They are proactive in handling the dew and UV rays but are incapable of managing the humid environment. They are perfect for the facility where light and little protection is the necessity.
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.
