Awnings


Looking for a new way to invite customers into your store? Want that new way to consistently save you money? Commercial awnings are the perfect solution. They add a decorative touch to any business by displaying text and/or images. By offering shade, awnings will cut down your cost on the expensive air conditioning bill.

Commercial Awnings
Awnings add the perfect amount of visual flair that will make any storefront stand out. With many options, businesses can easily find suitable styles and designs to compliment any company. There are many different materials to choose from when creating an awning: stripes, solids, tweeds, and weaves. Awnings range from canvas to backlit to retractable. All materials used are high quality and durable that will retain vibrant color years after being in the great outdoors.

Benefits of Awnings:

  • Used as advertising
  • Help brand a business
  • Add a finishing touch to the building
  • Bring valued shade, substantially lowering air conditioning bills
  • Call attention to a site or business
  • Create a very distinctive look

Considerations
Keep in mind that many cities require awnings to be compliant with local building codes such as fire resistance, and even visual aesthetics.

Did You Know?
Commercial awnings:

1. Set Your Business Apart
It is understandable that you want your business to get noticed. If your business is located in a high traffic area, awnings make your business stand out from competitors. For commercial properties that are off the beaten track, awnings make the company easy to find.

2. Provide Extra Space
Your establishment could use extended operating space. Popular for restaurant and bar industries, where outdoor seating is desirable. Other business can use the new extra space for a break room or meeting area. Awnings allow your business to use outdoor space any time during the day or night. Think about those scorching days or if the forecast calls for precipitation. No problem. Awnings allow outdoor space to be utilized during all weather.

3. Are Simple
Not only are awnings simple in design but also they are simple to install. They do not require the services of a general contractor or architect, and won’t need to be brought “up to code.” Compared to any type of “brick and mortar” construction they are much less expensive, so installation is almost painless.

4. Save You Money
Awnings can help your business save energy! About 50% of the solar heat enters a room by coming through the glass, which accounts for about one fifth of the load on an air conditioner. By adding awnings above your windows, cut 94% of the glare and UV rays, lower room temperatures by up to 15 degrees, and save anywhere from 25 to 34% on energy bills.

With low up-front cost, virtually no maintenance, and compliance with environmental and safety codes, awnings have potential to positively impact a business’s bottom line. For those opposite months with cold weather, consider a retractable awning.
