Commercial awnings and canopies are structures placed outside and above windows, doors, and in other areas of commercial properties. There are multiple configurations, including fixed, walkway, and retractable awnings.Businesses may add awnings to the property for many reasons, including to increase usable outdoor space, enhance the appeal of a building’s exterior, and provide protection from outdoor elements. Are awnings required for commercial projects? Awnings aren’t subject to the same ADA, OSHA, IBC, and local guidelines as wheelchair ramps and other accessibility systems. However, there may be some parameters around the size and type of awning or canopy you install.After an initial purview of the installation site and considering your requirements, the team at Upside Innovations will provide details about the dimensions, clearance, and other factors necessary for the project. What are the advantages of commercial awnings? Some advantages of commercial awnings include:– Adds more commercial space for offering products and services outdoors– Ensures patrons or guests are protected while outside– Improves the cleanliness of entryways by keeping out elements and debris– Enhances the aesthetic quality of the building’s exterior– Can potentially lower energy costs by shading indoor spaces from the intense rays of the sun Commercial vs. residential awnings: what’s the difference? The applications for commercial and residential awnings are similar, but homeowners may get more creative. They might attach an awning to a pergola or gazebo for a quaint look or a retractable patio awning for use during the summer while on the deck.Businesses may also be creative with awnings but should remember that these decisions are about more than personal preference. For example, what colors pair well with the existing exterior decor, and which may clash? Will installing an awning in an area create an obstruction? Make sure your commercial awning delivers a return on investment. Are commercial awnings ADA-compliant? A trusted installer like Upside Innovations can help you ensure that any accessibility system or outdoor structure subject to ADA guidelines or similar codes complies with those requirements.Upside Innovation’s commercial awnings are ADA-compliant.
