Outdoor restaurant seating in Florida is a mixed blessing. For every beautiful, sunny day, there’s a day with rain in the forecast, ready to potentially ruin a meal and even worse — ruin the ROI for a restaurants outdoor seating area.
Savvy eateries like Sarasota’s Rusty Bucket Restaurant and Tavern know that if you can keep your outdoor seating area open during bad weather but still give the diner the feeling of eating al fresco, that the potential for someone to choose them, increases over restaurants without a protected outdoor seating option.
Awning Works Inc. was able to offer a great solution to protect the large window openings at the Rusty Bucket Sarasota, by installing elegant and functional Solar Point Contract Shade Screens throughout the outdoor seating area, including a doorway. The solar shades are inset with a high quality, contract rated, black shade screens, guaranteeing air flow and comfortable climate.
These solar shades have the option to be fully motorized and provide a view, even when retracted.
Awning Works’ Shade Point Contract Solar Screens can be upgraded to include an additional track of hurricane screen protection and feature premium Somfy® motorization.
