Awnings for Retail and Hospitality


Awnings can be a valuable investment for restaurants and pubs as they allow you to offer shaded alfresco dining during the warmer months, increasing the popularity of your premises.


The sun can often be too hot or bright in the summer months and a shade structure such as an awning would offer shade from the sun’s heat and glare, enabling your customers to sit outside and enjoy the outdoors whilst keeping protected in the shade.


Awnings can also be used to create a sheltered, designated smoking area away from your non- smoking customers therefore keeping everyone happy!


Awnings offer many benefits to shops too as they can enhance a shop front and, as signage can be included on an awning, they can also promote your business and make your building stand out from the crowd. As an added bonus, awnings will keep the building inside cooler when installed above a window and this can be a benefit to any business!


Awnings are available in many styles, sizes and colours to suit your building, as you will find out over the next few pages of this guide.


Case Study: Ava Jewellers


Ava Jewellers in Clacton on Sea, Essex required a shade structure to be installed to the front of their shop that could be opened and closed as and when required. We recommended our Commercial Awnings as these are perfect for shop fronts due to the fact that they have no canopy posts and they can be closed out of hours, avoiding vandalism.


Awnings are perfect for retailers such as jewellery shops where customers will often look at the products on display in the window before going inside as they help to reduce window glare and make viewing products easier and more comfortable.
