January 1, 2019
There is so much more to protecting your space from the elements than just retractable awnings. Dorchester Awning provides numerous coverings that can be tailored to your unique space. Whether for personal or professional use, Dorchester Awning provides many types of high-quality solar shades in Boston that can keep your patio dry and comfortable.
Zippered side panels are a flexible way to keep your space from being affected by the weather. Using durable fabric and faux-windows made from clear vinyl, these types of shades are usually used for outdoor sitting areas.
In residential spaces, these panels can be used to turn an outdoor patio into an indoor sunroom that can be used even if it is raining or windy outside. For professional use, zippered panels are often used by restaurants looking to cover an outdoor seating area. Having the flexibility to unzip and roll up the panels when they’re not needed makes them an enticing option for many establishments.
Dorchester Awning offers fixed-panel structures that can provide more permanent solutions to your needs. With the weather constantly changing by the hour in New England, having a stronger structure to protect your space can be a necessity. What sets our fixed-panel structures apart from the competition is the quality of the construction.
Utilizing galvanized steel tubing to provide a strong, rigid frame, Dorchester Awning can build out structures to cover spaces that have uncommon dimensions like an exterior staircase or a space that wraps around the corner of a building. This flexibility allows for Dorchester Awning to continue to grow as a leader in the awning business as it has for more than a century.
Along these lines, Dorchester Awning is also a leading provider of solar shades in Boston. Solar shades function much like regular retractable blinds, except they’re made of a unique material that effectively blocks out the sun. If your home or business is negatively impacted by ultra-bright sunlight at certain times of the day, solar shades are a great permanent solution that can be used year-round!
How often do you think the fixture would be used? At what times of year? If you are looking for something temporary to cover an area like a patio for a few weeks a year, then a zippered panel structure would be your best bet due to its flexibility in terms of assembly, implementation, and storage.
For something more permanent, or even a space that you would want covered throughout the year, then a more permanent solution like a fixed-panel structure or solar shades are probably the way to go. Dorchester Awning will work with you to design something that can stand up to wear and tear of the seasons in the Northeast.
