Awning Canopies / August 14, 2019 / Aurora Hess
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.
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.
Allocating funds to an awning canopy or cabana design project is a venture that will reap what it sows. In addition to providing current customers with an additional sun-shading feature cabanas canopies and awnings add attractive and eye-catching features to the property. These appealing structures offer an emotional and mental retreat for souls weary from the day-to-day shuffle and physical splendor for eyes tired of the same old neutral colored building. The numbers speak for themselves: Even in this time when popular opinion holds that vacations are on the decline the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported a 3.2 percent increase in travel and tourism spending during the second quarter of 2011 so hopefully the trend holds firm for the second quarter of 2012.
