Awnings – What Can They Be Used For?

Choosing a restaurant that has outdoor dining facilities is an important factor for many customers. Think about it – When the sun is shining and it’s lovely and warm outside, the thought of having a day off from cooking is always an attractive option, especially if they are able to dine outside.

Shop Awning - Commercial AwningMany restaurants, cafés and pubs now offer outdoor dining facilities to give their customers more dining space and to improve popularity on hot, sunny days. Installing an awning at your premises will help encourage customers to choose your restaurant over your competitors that do not have a sheltered outdoor dining area. An awning will offer shade, enabling your customers to sit outside and enjoy the sun whilst keeping protected in the shade, keeping them cool on those hotter days.

Awnings are available in many styles, sizes and colours to suit your building. You can even have your logo or slogan printed on the awning to personalise it to your branding.

Restaurant Awning - Commercial AwningSome awnings also offer the option of automatic sun and wind sensors so they open when the sun is shining and fold away when it senses wind. If you prefer to open and retract your awning manually, this is also an option.

Awnings have many other uses for restaurants and pubs, they can also be used as a shelter for smokers; you can create a sheltered, designated smoking area away from your non smoking customers therefore keeping everyone happy!

  1. Good morning,
    I am interested in having an awning installed at the front of the dental surgery where I work.
    What do I need to do? Will someone come and measure up? Are the awnings installed by you?
    kind regards

    • Good morning Claire, thank you for your reply.

      Yes we do install our awnings. If you’d like a firm quotation, we will visit your dental surgery to conduct a survey. Or alternatively, you can send us some photos of the area and the size you require and we’ll send you an estimated cost.

      Please let me know how you’d like to proceed, you can email us: or call us on freephone: 0800 389 9072
