Commercial Spaces

custom awnings can add visual interest and dimension to any commercial space, adding visual interest and making your business stand out from its surroundings. They can be tailored to match the design and theme of your company and serve as an eye-catching landmark that attracts customers passing by, drawing customers’ eyes back in. Furthermore, awnings can help increase exposure for special promotions or sidewalk sales to help grow business awareness and gain more customers.

Apart from their aesthetic benefits, custom awnings can also provide practical protection from the elements. An awning can shade a dining area during summer and shelter employees during windy or rainy weather conditions; further increasing customer comfort. Awnings may even help to lower energy costs by shading windows and decreasing how much sun enters a building.

With so many choices and possibilities available to businesses today, it is wise to consult an experienced awning designer when selecting the ideal custom awning for their business. They will help select fabric and frame suitable for you needs while meeting local regulations regarding size and placement requirements.

Window and door custom awnings are an increasingly popular choice in commercial settings as they provide air circulation and natural lighting while offering protection from UV rays. Most window and door awnings can be mounted to support beams easily for easier customization than other forms of awnings.


Restaurant awnings provide much more than curb appeal; when customized to a restaurant’s brand, colors, and logos they create an inviting environment that draws new business in. Plus they shield diners from harsh sun or wind rays for greater comfort during peak meal times, reducing air conditioning requirements by keeping diners comfortable!

An custom awning can also create an additional outdoor dining space, enabling more seating capacity and revenue potential to be met. Furthermore, they can be used to establish a smoking area – creating a more pleasant atmosphere for non-smoking customers while safeguarding the rest of your restaurant from harm caused by smoking customers.

Awnings can be customized to create the ideal indoor/outdoor dining experience by incorporating rail curtains, windows and screens to provide the optimal dining environment. This may help protect against pesky mosquitos during warmer months or create more private areas for special celebrations.

Awnings are popular signage solutions for restaurants, bars, wineries and condominium complexes. They’re also used in hospitals, art galleries, hotels and malls, where they help direct patients, visitors and clients easily towards the departments or offices they need. At commercial offices branded custom awnings can help build brand recognition among employees and visitors while simultaneously promoting events or initiatives of the business.

Transportation Hubs

Transport hubs can be complex facilities with multiple entrances, corridors and waiting areas; their design should reflect each space’s individual environment. This is especially essential when considering wayfinding; wayfinding should reflect both an overall interior design style of a space as well as brand voice and tone; for instance international hubs may use pictograms as a communication medium with travelers who may not speak their local language.

Awnings are an ideal way to transform these areas, creating more welcoming entrances and offering shaded seating and other functional areas. Furthermore, they’re an invaluable opportunity for branding purposes.

Awnings not only add beauty and protection to exterior spaces, they can also protect commercial buildings from water damage and UV rays while keeping interior temperatures cooler – studies demonstrate this through showing how unshaded glass allows far more heat into buildings than an awning does.

Custom awnings can provide healthcare and medical centers with an effective signage solution, where patients or visitors often wait outside in the weather before receiving services from staff members. Awnings provide comfort while waiting for ambulances, buses or taxis; additionally they can serve as focal points along walkways and wheelchair ramps creating an inviting ambiance during this wait time.

Educational Spaces

Schools need to accommodate an array of users. Students, teachers, parents and visitors all can benefit from outdoor solutions like custom awnings and covered walkways.

Schools host events like pep rallies, talent shows and parent nights to keep students active outside and encourage fresh air play and community bonding! Multi-use spaces benefit greatly from adding an custom awning for added protection from excess sunlight that might enter through windows and heat up an otherwise comfortable and functional school environment. Awnings provide cost-effective energy-saving measures while keeping everyone comfortable!

Health and medical facilities present unique challenges when it comes to using custom awnings to transform spaces. Patients, families, and staff require safe places for waiting during transport or waiting to see members of their medical team; Awnings provide a dry and shaded waiting area even in adverse weather.

NH Awning recently visited Natchaug Elementary in Willimantic Connecticut to install custom half round entrance custom awnings featuring Forest Green Firesist Fabric – our crew were delighted with the outcome and hope Natchaug Elementary enjoys their new canopy for many years to come!
