Awning Canopies / August 13, 2019 / Nora Parker
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.
Whether you are looking for a geared tracked system on an existing verandah or patio café style rope and pulley simple spring loaded pull down or the more traditional awning on arms find a shade sails provider which can advise you on an awnings solution to satisfy your needs. Awning canopies outside the premise provide the shade during the hot summer days. Traditionally they were made from the wood metal cotton canvas which required less maintenance due to their durable and sturdy nature. From rigid model to retractable one one can find the suitable option. When used with security shutters they can create an awestruck moment for the visitors. There are certain materials that are being used to give the facility its best shape in mind of buyers.
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.
