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. If you are unsure about doing this job yourself it is always best to hire a professional. Use a Snow Broom Snow brooms are great to use on fabric and metal awnings alike. They are soft bristled with an extendable handle. This helps protect your awning while removing the excess snow. Simply push or pull the snow off the awning until...

Donut Delight  Gets New Open Traditional Awnings.

The NH Awning Crew was in Stamford, CT last summer to install some open style traditional awnings for Donut Delight. We installed six awesome awnings to shade each window and the double doored entrance. We used black Weathertyte Plus Awning Fabric (#840001) for each canopy and to give it a modern touch we omitted the side panels. A commercial awning is definitely one of the most important assets for your business. They not only enhance your storefront and brand visibility but they also protect your customers from adverse weather conditions. The benefits of adding an awning to your business doesn’t stop there, they also help you save on energy costs in an eco-friendly way. There’s not to many other business resources that you can say that about! Time to start planning your next shading project in time for summer Contact New Haven Awning Now!...
