How to Get the Most Out of Your Patio This Summer May 18, 2018

With temperatures rising each day and more people enjoying their time outdoors, it’s important to make sure that your business’ outdoor area is ready to accommodate and meet the needs of your customers. Here are a few ways you can make your business the place to be this summer:

Sun Shades Are a Must

Many patrons enjoy alfresco dining during the summer, but if your patio faces west and you don’t have any shade solutions installed, the hot and harsh afternoon sun will deter clients from sitting outside. This will cause your business to lose valuable seating areas, which will in turn increase wait times, loss of customers, and loss of revenue. Instead, protect your customers from the hot summer sun with our motorized sun shades. Our shades are able to repel 90-95% of the sun’s rays and provide an instant 10 degree difference when deployed, keeping your outdoor area cool and comfortable.

Are you a beachfront business? Our motorized enclosures can withstand winds of 65 mph and can be upgraded to be a hurricane-rated product with the ability to endure up to 120 mph winds. The tracks of our enclosures are also all-aluminum, making them the strongest and most durable in the market, protecting your sun shades from wear and tear.

Redesign Your Outdoor Area

Attract customers to enjoy your restaurant’s patio by establishing a unique charm and atmosphere with various lighting implements. String lights can create a fun, festive ambience while wall-mounted lights, such as sconces, can deliver a more emotive and lavish atmosphere. Providing a comfortable seating area will also contribute to the positive experience of your customers. What’s more, the design, color, and fabric of our motorized shades can be customized to seamlessly integrate to the design of your patio. Its framing systems allows us to install the enclosure up to 28 feet wide, without having to build additional beams or modify the layout of your outdoor area. This means that you can keep the look and layout of your patio without compromising for shade.

Include TVs and Sound System

There are many sporting events happening this summer, promising an influx of customers rushing to comfortable outdoor areas to cheer on their favorite teams. The NBA Finals and the Stanley Cup begin at the end of May and run until mid-June. Following right after is the month-long FIFA World Cup that starts on June 14. Bringing summer to a close is the NFL’s preseason at the start of August. Make your patio the best place to watch sports this summer by having multiple televisions and a great sound system to cater to all fans. Include a misting system and our motorized shades in order to provide a cool environment and to protect the patrons’ views from being obstructed by the sun’s glare.
