Awning Canopies / September 10, 2019 / Ina Hebert
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.
Besides the functionality of the retractable awning they also have improved the quality and options of color patterns and size (both width and extended length) of the canopy material resulting in an attractive addition to your outdoor living. Contact a local patio rep to discuss your project and the availability of a beautiful retractable patio awning. Believe it or not the look of the business premise has a direct relation with business performance. Your factory shop or corporate office should reflect the business theme in a professional way. This influences people develop a positive premonition before entering your office. Moreover a store with a different look drive people hit it as soon as they see the building. So you must think of some mechanisms that can help you stand out of the crowd.
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.
