Our client needed their existing Semi Cassette awning serviced and recovered. The existing awning was supplied and installed by us over 10 years ago and has been recovered several times. The speciality coffee shop that serves artisan food, gelato, gin bowls and cocktails needed a rebrand. SBI were called in to provide a new awning cover and add signwriting to the cover. As with all sign writing projects we provide a CAD for our clients to sign off the artwork. There was only one change made by the client and that was to increase the size of the lettering. The reason to increase the size was due to the cover being striped. It is unusual to sign-write over stripes however the stripes are light in colour so the signage stood out.
We carried out a full service, which included cleaning the aluminium framework and folding arms. The remote control and motor were tested to make sure they were operating properly. A very important aspect that is covered in the service is checking the wall fixings. Awnings take a lot of buffering from the wind and these forces are transfered into the wall fixings. We also check retaining bolts and tighten where required. The fixings can work loose over time and this can result in the awning coming away from the building! The moving parts were tested cleaned and lubricated to help provide smooth opening and closing of the awning. We checked the height and adjusted the awning to make sure that it was level. The client is delighted with appearance of the awning and will be using SBI to clean and service the awning on an annual basis to keep it in top condition for years to come.
