With springtime just around the corner, it may be high time to consider remodeling or revamping your business’ outdoor patio or space to prep for the busiest months of the year. Whether you’re looking to expand your outdoor seating capacity, build a custom entryway to attract new customers, or get complete weather protection, Terrace Awnings are a must-have for all your business needs.
Versatile and highly functional, they will transform any outdoor area into functional and eye-catching spaces that will appeal to potential guests. Whether you own a store, sidewalk cafe, spa or restaurant, an outdoor commercial awning is undoubtedly a great investment.
If you’re wondering which type of awning is best suited for your business, here are 3 popular retractable awning models which can easily be integrated and installed into any type of commercial establishment.
1. Capriccio Terrace Awning
A very popular and sought-after commercial awning is the Capriccio Retractable Awning: a trendy and innovative commercial awning. Thanks to its versatility and ease of installment, this year-round, 4 season awning is a great option to accommodate and suit any type of structural design. It provides your business with a simplistic, modern and urban aesthetic with an added touch of refinement. Plus, the 100% waterproof top of the line Serge Ferrari vinyl canvas (available in different colours) can be retracted front and back with a remote control, with optional telescopic side screens that can be added to enclose the patio, so you can transition effortlessly from a full terrace coverage to an open-air setting.
The Capriccio Retractable Awning’s sturdy aluminum structure and vinyl canvas provide unrelenting protection from unfavorable weather conditions, giving your customers the option to lounge outside - rain, wind, or shine - and greatly extending the lifespan of your outdoor space. In addition, the aluminum frame can be painted grey or black to provide added customization and refinement.
The Capriccio model also provides separate dividing sections that can operate independently from one another thanks to a remote control system (when 2 or more are installed). This feature makes it a great choice to provide year-round protection, extend the functionality of your terrace, and be able to shield only partial sections of your terrace while leaving others open-air. Some customers may prefer to dine in the shade while others may want to enjoy a little sunshine. The Capriccio Retractable Awning’s extreme versatility will enable you to accommodate all your customers’ needs and preferences.
2. Attico Fixed Retractable Awning
Less is always more with the Attico Fixed Retractable Awning. It can be seamlessly integrated into any décor and design and can transform your patio space into a beautiful urban retreat. Complete your terrace with an overhead roof protection to shield your clients from poor weather conditions, without ever compromising ambiance and aesthetics. Whenever needed, the Attico Motorized Retractable Awning can be withdrawn to provide guests with an unimpeded view of the surrounding cityscape and blue skies, or extended to provide full coverage and protection from the rain, harsh winds or blazing sun. It also has a wind blocker tube system and revolutionary gutter system (that can also be added on the lateral sides) to prevent water from accumulating. Its sturdy, slanted aluminum construction, stainless steel materials as well as its motorized roof provide more coverage than most retractable awning options: the 100% waterproof 4-season vinyl canvas (or 3-season acrylic canvas) can be deployed all the way down to the ground to provide complete protection from UV rays, wind or rain, making it a great option for businesses looking to withstand harsh weather conditions.
The Attico Retractable Awning can extend as far as 32’ feet with no need for any additional support or welding, making it perfect for businesses that occupy a large surface area, like an outdoor spa.
3. Retractable Wall Pergola
If you’re looking to create a simple, yet modern outdoor atmosphere, the wall pergola is a great choice for your venue. Perfect for an easy, hassle-free setup and for accommodating smaller and cozy outdoor spaces as well as larger spaces, the wall pergola can be mounted on any wall or ceiling and will swiftly transform your patio into a beautifully shaded area. Its 100% waterproof roof canvas is strategically designed to exceed the length of the robust front poles to prevent water buildup in case of rain. In addition, the retractable wall pergola can also be surrounded with optional side curtains for added customization and protection. The wall pergola is very easy to maintain during winter: you can keep it outdoors year long simply by rolling back the roof into an aluminum casing with the help of a remote control.
Unlike the 2 previous awning options, the wall pergola will not extend to the ground; the lack of rails in the front will provide a more open-air and partial coverage, so as to avoid over-cluttering your outdoor area. The front fixation poles will provide a robust standing structure that will withstand strong winds. The retractable wall pergola is a great option for creating custom and impactful entryways for stores or small sidewalk cafes.
There are various factors that go into buying commercial awnings for your business and the choice of commercial awning will depend on the size, location and nature of your business, as well as your personal preferences. Awnings are multi-functional, and while normally associated with decks and patios, they can also be used to protect your window frames, roofs, and doors.
But no matter which commercial terrace awning you choose, you can rest assured that all awnings will not only enhance the look of your business, but improve your brand’s visibility and increase your sales.
