Awning Canopies / August 20, 2019 / Leann Parker
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.
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.
