Awning Canopies / September 11, 2019 / Muriel Sargent
A roof like structure can be less expensive than building a porch by attaching a retractable awning canopy over the patio area with little maintenance. The patio location should allow easy access to and from the indoor kitchen areas so the flow of people between is natural and direct without walking through another room or space. The flow of traffic will depend on the exact attachment and coverage of the patio retractable awning and the proximity between the patio and house. Access to the kitchen and location of the exterior doors will help in determining the preferred placement of the patio and attachment of the retractable awning. The awning comes in several standard sizes and numerous patterns and colors. The canopy material is water resistant and blocks the sun UV rays and lasts for years if properly maintained.
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.
They can keep indoor temperature as much as 20 degree cooler than outside. Thus retractable commercial awning reduces the load on the cooler and helps shop-owners save on energy bills. Home dwellers install retractable awnings at home for the same commercial benefits. Awnings were popular in Europe Asia and America during the beginning of nineteenth century. However with the advent of coolers awnings observed a phase of lower popularity in USA. But after the latest hike in energy cost awnings are enjoying a comeback all over the country in recent times. People residing in the states where tropical humid tropical and subtropical climate prevail find awnings to be very useful. Being a peninsula in the Gulf of Mexico Florida enjoys humid subtropical and tropical climate.
