Awning Canopies / August 22, 2019 / Susanne Dejesus
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.
Are you looking forward to holding your own party sports event picnic or celebration? Many people aim to hold events like these outdoors particularly in the summer when the sun is shining bright. Something about the sun makes people positive energetic and happy - the perfect weather for throwing a get-together. Of course every event planner knows that it is always good and practical to form some sort of contingency plan should the venue become dizzyingly hot or the rain start falling. For outdoor events such as any of the ones mentioned above an awning canopy would be a perfect investment. The sun can be a painful thing when taken in hefty doses. In the summer when the temperatures skyrocket you will definitely need one of these canopies so that you can have a place to escape to for shade should it get too hot for you outside.
A roof like structure can be less expensive than building a porch by attaching a retractable awning canopy over the patio area with little maintenance. The patio location should allow easy access to and from the indoor kitchen areas so the flow of people between is natural and direct without walking through another room or space. The flow of traffic will depend on the exact attachment and coverage of the patio retractable awning and the proximity between the patio and house. Access to the kitchen and location of the exterior doors will help in determining the preferred placement of the patio and attachment of the retractable awning. The awning comes in several standard sizes and numerous patterns and colors. The canopy material is water resistant and blocks the sun UV rays and lasts for years if properly maintained.
