Gimme Shelter: The Versatility of Commercial Awnings

When most people think about awnings for their business, they automatically think about having protection from the elements. While this is a crucial function, you can accomplish even more! A commercial awning is an ideal location for you to advertise your business.

Why Add Business Branding to the Awning?

Having business branding on the awning makes it easier for customers to find your business. It also gets your business’ brand out to people who might not already know about it. Individuals who come to your location will appreciate the professional appearance that the awning provides.

What Type of Awning Material Should You Use?

One of the primary decisions you have to make about the awning is what type of material you want to use. The key here is that it needs to be durable enough to last.

Cotton canvas: This is the least durable option on the market, with the primary benefit being that it’s waterproof.

Acrylic: An acrylic fabric awning is mildew and UV resistant, but it isn’t waterproof. It’s slightly more durable than cotton canvas.

Vinyl and polyester composite: This synthetic blend is the most durable option. It’s waterproof and fireproof.

Once you determine the material of the awning, you can start designing it. This begins with choosing the background color for the awning.

What Other Benefits Do Awnings Have?

The awning protects customers from the rain as they walk into the door of your building. The awning can be a security feature for your business because it can block out glares on the glass so that you can clearly see who’s near the business and who’s coming in the door. There’s also the chance that the awning can help you save on energy due to it blocking the sun from heating up the building in the summer.
