Energy savings. Retractable awnings and vertical drop screens can lower indoor temperatures by 75% and cut air conditioning use by 25%, which significantly lowers energy bills. Element protection. Awnings and drop screens protect areas from weather like rain and wind or from glare and UV rays from the sun. Allergen protection, particularly by vertically-hanging awnings used as screens around patios. Privacy for activity areas such as spas or hot tubs and pools. Retractable awnings can be used for any kind of outdoor exposure, like patios and seating areas, and for indoor areas, such as over windows and doors. There are significant differences between.
Commercial Awnings: With soaring price rates, commercial houses and businesses have to spend a lot on overheads and miscellaneous accounts. Businesses are also experiencing the problem of high energy cost. Installing awning can fetch them the monetary benefit as well. So here again sun control and power saving play vital role. However, most delicate quality of commercial awnings is brand-compliance. All businesses have a brand color, brand logo and brand style. The awnings should be in line with these factors. Top of that, all the businesses have discrete themes, like health care, shopping mall, restaurant, book store, drugstore, coffee shop etc. So the awning should go with the theme of the business as well. Otherwise the shades would not look good and damage both the outlook of the building and the image of the business.
Also, retractable awnings have financial benefits over fixed awnings that make them a tempting solution: Retractable awnings are overall less expensive than fixed awnings to install, and they dont require a contractor. Retractable awnings are about a quarter to a third of the cost of permanent construction to cover and utilize the same square footage. Because many styles of retractable awning arms are spring-loaded, there are no support posts to install, to block the view from under the awning, or to act as a potential hazard for children and pets. They require virtually no maintenance, not even mandatory cleaning.Capital Improvement Advantage Retractable awnings have interesting ways of saving a business money: o Direct energy cost savings. Sun protection systems cut heat buildup in a room as much as 77%, translating into a direct utility bill savings of up to 25%. "Dual use" as signage and promotion. Business names, logos, and telephone numbers can be printed on the awning, which saves money on constructing and designing separate signs.
A drop screen usually enhances an existing structural feature, such as a door or window, or as panels to enclose a porch, lanai, or gazebo. A drop screen requires a sturdy beam to mount to and possibly a door frame or post to fix the side guides to. After finding the location, simply measure the width of the area from side to side on the interior of the frame (for an inside mount) and add for the width of the side guides if mounted outside the window frame. Then measure the height of the screen, going from the inside (or bottom) of the top frame to the bottom of the threshold for the height; for an outside mount, add the size of the headerbox and bottom rail to the height measurement. Finding an ideal retractable awning location has a few other factors to consider.
