Why are Butterfly Awnings Good Value for Money?

Awnings can help protect against the weather, come rain or shine – versatility that is important in the changeable British climate. If you are looking for ultimate protection on a larger scale from your commercial awning system, then butterfly awnings are no doubt going to be the best option for you. They are essentially two awnings in one, spread out either side of one pole. They will be able to retract or expand on demand, however you need them to, in order to give you the protection you and your customers need from the weather. If it’s raining, you will be able to shelter under one of these awnings. If it’s blazing sunshine and you need a break from the heat, then you will be able to find shelter underneath one of these awnings as well, especially if it has UV protection built into the material.

Butterfly awnings have many features that make them good value for money. This doesn’t mean they are the cheapest type of awning around, but they are certainly one of the most versatile, long lasting and high quality. If you add up all of these factors, then it’s easy to see why they are one of the most popular type of awning in the commercial sector.

The construction of a butterfly awning – how are they put together? What benefits does this bring?

The butterfly awning is different to traditional retractable awnings in that it is not one, but two awnings, either side of a central post. This post will feature a fully retractable awning on either side, so if needed, you can create two different environments from one awning. This makes it very good value for money, offering you an alternative way to use your space on either side of the awning, giving maximum versatility.

One of the main reasons why a butterfly awning is so effective is the framework that it’s built upon. Made from galvanised steel, it’s incredibly strong and hard-wearing in any circumstances, so weather or rusting needn’t be a concern. You can also get open, semi open and cassette models that will provide protection for the framework when it is folded away. This is good for awnings where protection is needed from the elements, as they can be folded away fully when not in use and all components of the awning will be sheltered from rain and other adverse weather conditions.

You can choose butterfly awnings to suit your requirements, depending on what you need for your space. You can get awnings that are electric or you can have a manual winding handle to retract it and fold it out when you want to use it. There are also lots of options when it comes to appearance. You can select awning fabrics of many types and choose designs that are suited to your space, depending on what is best for your industry. If you have brand colours, you can choose awnings that complement them or that are made to the same colour.
