Awning Canopies / July 27, 2019 / Sabrina Carey
Are you looking forward to holding your own party sports event picnic or celebration? Many people aim to hold events like these outdoors particularly in the summer when the sun is shining bright. Something about the sun makes people positive energetic and happy - the perfect weather for throwing a get-together. Of course every event planner knows that it is always good and practical to form some sort of contingency plan should the venue become dizzyingly hot or the rain start falling. For outdoor events such as any of the ones mentioned above an awning canopy would be a perfect investment. The sun can be a painful thing when taken in hefty doses. In the summer when the temperatures skyrocket you will definitely need one of these canopies so that you can have a place to escape to for shade should it get too hot for you outside.
Of course if awnings and other shade structures improve the messaging of a restaurant and are a patron s first impressions canopies very often round out a restaurant-goers final thoughts. While less focuses on literal messaging than on style and atmosphere canopies extend a restaurant s outdoor footprint adding a sense of elegance as indoor amenities are brought outside. Built from a similar selection of material as stated in the previous paragraph canopies can still retain the natural collective body heat from guests (and hot food) with only the most minor of fold-down fabric walls. And as fall weather progresses and the temperatures drop these simple measures can be augmented with propane heaters turning outdoor dining into a year round possibility - even in some of the country s harsher winter climates.
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.
