In the steamy climate of Florida’s Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg area, sheltering from the heat and the sun’s penetrating UV rays is high up on the importance scale, particularly during the summer. West Coast Awnings entered the shade structure business in 1957 and hasn’t looked back, thanks to this fact, and to the company’s excellent range of products, and its experienced, knowledgeable staff.
Sun protection is an important consideration for many businesses for many reasons. Employees, customers, and clients are always more comfortable in a cool working or shopping environment. This is particularly true when it comes to cafés and restaurants, neither of which will earn a stellar reputation if the interior is hot and stuffy due to the day's hot sun. Keep your customers cool and comfortable with one of our fixed canopies.
Just as important, considerable amounts of energy can be wasted on keeping the interior of a commercial building cool, when a fixed canopy system would help cool the building and reduce cooling energy costs at the same time. Investing in fixed window awnings can reduce energy costs, make a commercial building more comfortable and inviting, and even enhance the look of the building at the same time.
Whatever your color and style requirements, a fixed canopy system from West Coast Awnings can meet your needs. While fixed canopies are not quite as versatile as the retractable variety, they do provide a significant advantage, in that they are much more highly customizable. Additionally, all fixed canopy fabrics meet or exceed Florida's strict building codes for flame retardant characteristics. Sunbrella's Firesist line of fabrics and Sattler's Firemaster products are perfect for any commercial application.
Businesses and building projects in the Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg area will benefit from the addition of a West Coast Awnings fixed canopy system. We’ve worked with clients from all over Florida over the last five decades, so don’t let your location stop you from making contact!
