Hamden’s IHOP Gets Their Awnings Recovered.

The one and only awning crew was on Dixwell avenue in Hamden, Connecticut not to long ago to recover some open traditional style awnings for IHOP. We used Sunbrella fabric to make sure that the color and shade stay bright for many many years to come. Sunbrella fabric is extremely resilient and even a color as bold as the blue we used can be cleaned with a bleach and water mixture. This isn’t just something they say. Head on over to a post we did a year or so ago and check out the Sunbrella Durability Challenge. After watching I’m sure you’ll see why this fabric is used on everything from boats to living room furniture. Are your awnings starting to fade?

Mew Haven Cat Cafe Gets A Custom Internal Vestibule!

No that’s not a typo and you read it correctly. A Cat Cafe located on Whalley Ave. in “Mew Haven”, CT. Where else can you grab a great cup of coffee while playing with some of Americas favorite furry feline friends? Most of our vestibules are mainly used to keep people out of the elements so they can enjoy the outdoors with out dealing with the wind snow or rain. Not this time, this custom beauty is primarily used to keep it’s curious residents from wandering outside. We used super tough Lexan Panels for the upper walls and framed and boxed out the lower sections to keep the cats from getting startled as customers enter the cafe. A Lexan Panels is a clear polycarbonate sheet that is extremely transparent, in fact it has better light transmission than many kinds of glass. Lexan is also lighter, stronger and more scratch resistant then acrylic (plexiglass). All these attributes combined with the fact that it can be made in just about any shape makes it a great choice for your indoor and outdoor vestibules.   Do you have a enclosure idea that you didn’t think was possible?

Petra Construction Corp. Gets A New Custom Shaped Awning!

The NH Awning Crew was on Dixwell Avenue in New Haven, Connecticut not to long ago to install two unusually shaped awnings. The best way to describe these custom fabricated canopies is to picture a gable entrance awning in the shape of a house with a gambrel roof. I personally think its a great shape and expect to see more and more of these popping up for many businesses like architectural firms and real estate companies. To top it off we also added some custom graphics, and yes we also do that in house!  We offer a variety of printing techniques with unlimited color options for your graphic needs. We do so by utilizing our Sunbrella Graphics System as well as a Mimaki CJV-30 printer/plotter. With this awesome setup your graphics jump will off your awnings or signs and grab your perspective customers attention. When you have your own in house fabrication team with years of experience, the possibilities are endless! We don’t “Special Order” your awning like the other guys. We design, fabricate, cover and install to be sure that all of the work is done with the highest standards in mind. It’s time to start planning for...
