Awnings shield your business from the harsh Australian sun and create a welcoming and stylish outdoor space for your customers. But a one-size-fits-all approach won’t do when it comes to awnings. Here’s why customising your commercial outdoor fixed awning is the smartest investment you can make: 

 

1. Perfect Fit & Function 

 

No more awkward gaps or exposed areas! Custom-designed awnings provide better coverage and a more professional appearance for your shopfront, patio, or walkway.

 

  • Customising an awning’s projection is essential for businesses to control the shade throughout the day. This feature is especially important for businesses with certain sun exposure patterns, regardless of the time of day. For instance, a restaurant that receives afternoon sun might require a deeper awning projection to provide adequate shade for its customers.
  • Integrated gutters collect and channel water away from the building. The awning is pitched so that water naturally flows off it. This pitch protects the awning from damage from water pooling and prevents slipping hazards for customers entering or exiting your store.
2. Branding & Aesthetics 

 

Why not enhance your business’s visual appeal and reinforce your brand identity by matching your awning to your building’s colours and architecture? This cost-effective branding opportunity can create a professional and cohesive look, leaving a lasting impression on customers.

 

  • Showcase your logo, brand name or marketing message directly on the fabric to increase brand awareness and promote your business to a wider audience. 
  • Set the tone by creating the perfect ambience that truly represents your brand personality and captivates your audience’s attention. For example, if you own a funky surf shop, you can design an awning with bright colours and a wave motif. On the other hand, if you own a high-end jeweller, you can opt for a sleek awning with a metallic finish.
 
3. Investing in the Future 

A comfortable outdoor space with shade and protection from the elements can create a more inviting atmosphere, which may increase foot traffic, sales and overall customer satisfaction. This makes them more likely to linger and enjoy a meal or drink, ultimately boosting sales.

  • Choose weather-resistant materials when installing an awning. This will ensure that your awning lasts longer and that you get the most out of your investment. For instance, if your business is located in a coastal area with high winds, opting for a sturdier frame material and a more wind-resistant fabric to withstand harsh weather conditions is recommended.
  • Strategically positioned awnings can greatly reduce cooling costs by shading windows and doorways. Customising an awning using sensors and automation can optimise this benefit by covering the areas that generate the most heat gain. This can save you money over time on energy costs and contribute to a more eco-friendly business model.
