The Cross Sound Ferry Gets a New Canopy!

About a year ago we showed you how awnings aren’t just for buildings anymore when we installed a great retractable on a food truck! Since then we have done hundreds more unique installations and this is just more proof that if you have a location that needs some shading then NH Awning is the company to call.. For this project we created a stairwell canopy for the “Cecelia Ann” the newest member of The Cross Sound Ferry Fleet located in New London, CT. This great design keeps the passengers cool and dry as they travel downstairs to enjoy some signature cocktails or a craft beer from the Cross Sound Deli snack bar For the fabric we used Ferrari Soltis® Proof 502. This amazing fabric has a PVDF (Polyvinylidene fluoride) coating on both sides for long-term dirt and salt water resistance. With over 40 colors and a 10 year warranty this is a great choice for any shading situation.   Do you need a shading for something out of the ordinary? Don’t worry we have a solution!

The Best Way To Remove Snow From Your Canopy Or Awning.

In many areas of the country, snow buildup on awnings and canopies can be a very serious concern and very dangerous in many ways. Luckily in Connecticut having to remove snow from your canopy is a rare occurrence. Although canopies and awnings do a great job keeping the snow off your patios and walkways if snow or ice is allowed to build up excessively on your structure it could be subjected to a higher than normal weight load, which could put excess strain on the structure. There are many different tools that can be used to clear the snow from your awnings without causing any damage. Using incorrect tools can scratch metal, aluminum, or wood awnings or fray and tear some fabric awnings. Below are some of our recommended methods used in removing snow and ice from your awnings.
