Commercial Awnings including awnings for schools and restaurants
Broadly speaking exterior sunblinds and awnings can be broken down into retractable or fixed types. Those two terms are generally interchangeable in common use among the public and the distinction between the two has become very vague. We have simply used the term awnings to describe all types.
Retractable awnings are generally purchased for reasons of providing shade for goods in the shop window known as shop blinds or butchers blinds or traditional awnings CPV code 44115700, to protect customers in outside eating areas. They can be of the flat sheet variety eg President, or traditional eg The Victorian traditional shop blind or the canopy type eg The Dutch blind.
Non Retractable awnings are primarily used as decorative additions to buildings, often doubling up as three dimensional signs. However, most non retractable awnings are generically referred to as fixed canopies. Included in this category will be approach awnings which can be used to highlight an entrance or even be used as a covered walkway down stairs.
