Awning Canopies / August 25, 2019 / Muriel Sargent
Most standard canopy opening and closing functions are done by a manual crank with a handle that fold away out of site. There are retractable awning operational options for larger or custom made awnings that include an electric open/close control with or without a remote and weather sensor awning opening when rain is detected. These options are costly but maybe offset by their ease of operation. Valances side curtains and screening are just a few of the accessories available for the retractable awning. The beautiful patio retractable awning offers many benefits to the home occupants including protection from inclement and rainy weather extends use of the patio/deck area blocks health damaging Ultra Violet rays controls amount of sunlight shields undesirable views and reflected glare reduces fading and discoloration of drapes carpet and paintings and can reduce sun exposed interior heat gain by 70% to cut your cooling bills to name a few.
When your awning provides shade this just means that the heat coming in to your shop or store is lessened. You no longer have to fully blast your air conditioner to arrive at an ideal temperature. If you are looking for a commercial awning that you can easily install and uninstall then the folding arm awning would be the perfect choice. There are different types of folding arm awnings ranging from manually controlled to automatic. They also come in different sizes colours and materials. Next to the food and drinks nothing is more important for a restaurant than its décor. From the right lighting to the choice of tablecloths everything about the dining experience must promote the establishment. One way to do that includes the addition of awnings or canopies.
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.
