Energy saving: The result of installing awnings should be reflected in the power bill. A good awning can save 100 hours of energy consumption per month. However, you need to plan and install the awnings properly so that the system provides you with adequate heat protection. Home decoration: The awning should look nice on the walls; thats perhaps the most important quality of an awning. Consult a designer or architect and make sure to know what color combination and style would look aesthetically correct on the walls of your home. Durable: This is a quality all consumers look in whatever they use! To make utmost use of the awning, go for retractable ones. They can be pulled back when the weather is harsh and thus you can ensure a longer life of your awning.
Bettering the Customer Experience Retractable awnings can create a more pleasant outdoor experience. This has subtle but tangible effects on customers. The area around entrances is cooler and shaded, protected from rain, and generally more pleasant to be in. The primary function of a better customer experience is better foot traffic. The stylishness of the awning makes customers want to browse, and the glare, heat, and rain protection makes it more comfortable for them to do so. The sun protection has a dual utility, though. The UV protection (since suns rays never reach the interior) preserves window displays and interior furnishings and prevents fading. Even the inside of the store is more appealing for customers, and the heavy investment in signs and merchandise is protected from passive sun damage.
Arms - the part of the frame which folds closed at the elbow when the awning is retracted (rolls in) and opens when the awning is extended (rolls out). Shoulder - the joints on the retractable awning arms where arms attach to the mounting bar. Front bar - the extrusion at the very front of the awning frame. Hood - a cover which fits over the retractable awning frame and fabric; when the awning is fully retracted, the hood protects the exposed fabric, frame, and motor from the elements. Valance - a strip of fabric, usually a few inches high, which hangs from the front bar of the retractable awning. Rib - the cross bars of the frame which support the awning fabric. Not every awning style has ribs, since ribs are often used to create a shape to the awning frame; for example, lateral arm retractable awnings dont have any ribs. Canopy - an elongated, dome, or waterfall style retractable awning.
Retractable awnings offer a slew of advantages over fixed awnings, from easy installation to longer lifetimes. As the name indicates, retractable awnings retract, folding to help control the placement of the shade or to protect the awning. Because of their durability, retractable awnings can be long-term fixtures on the exterior of a home or commercial building, providing better outdoor living and working spaces; offering, sun, heat, glare and ultraviolet ray (UV) protection; and enhancing exterior appeal. Finding Purpose: Uses for Retractable Awnings Retractable awnings are most commonly used for element protection. Over 70% of awnings are purchased specifically to provide shade. This shade is primarily for comfort, to cut down on the brightness of the sun, cool off outdoor ambient temperatures, and make entrances more welcoming, but there are other benefits as well:
