Awning Ideas / February 20, 2019 / Sabrina Carey
To that end local businesses and larger chains are seeking out commercial signage designers and manufacturers who can bring their brands to life whether through a traditional sign posted near their doorway or in the form of an awning atop their building s facade. Signs and awnings are more than a message they re a symbol. Unlike a message which delivers specific information symbols are a way of projecting and marketing the emotional connection consumers have with particular products. Think about the Nike Swoosh. What comes to mind? Sleek? Cool? Perhaps even the motion of a running foot? The Swoosh doesn t just inform the consumer that it s Nike it s sending a symbolic message of what Nike stands for. The same goes for the Audi rings which like the Olympics suggest strength in unity.
So often they become dirty. You can always restore the original look and feel of the awnings by cleaning them at least twice a year. It is also a good idea to take the awning down to easily clean the harder-to-reach areas. Brush the Dirt and Debris Off: The awning needs to be washed thoroughly using a solution. But you must use a brush to remove the loose dirt and debris. The brushing off will prevent the dirt from getting soaked into the awning fabric during the washing process. You can rub the areas of the fabric that are affected by dirt and debris using a broom or a soft cleaning brush available at the local janitorial supply shops. However you need to ensure that dirt is removed from the underneath and top of the awning. If you have not take the awning down use a ladder to brush off the hard-to-reach areas.
Likewise when rain disturbs your outdoor plans--there s no reason to run inside. If you want to tan in the direct sun or take advantage of some heat on a cold fall day the awning can be rolled up just as quickly. When stored retractable awnings take up about six inches of horizontal space on the side of a building. Installed at a downward angle they need to be attached at least seven and a half feet off the ground. All right we ve covered "What are they?" Now let s deal quickly with the benefits that awnings give home and business owners. What can retractable awnings do for you? Obviously they give you a way to control the elements and this is more than an aesthetic pleasure since it preserves furniture from bleaching and lowers utility bills.
