Moran Canvas Products: How to Decide Between a Retractable and a Standard Awning!

Spear Style Awnings mfg'd by Moran Canvas

Installing an awning is a great way to give your home a little class—with the right awnings, your visitors will feel like they stepped into a fancy restaurant or hot new club. In addition to the many styles of standard awnings, you can choose a retractable awning, which can be unfurled and retracted with the flip of a switch. Consider these questions before purchasing standard or retractable awning.


  • How do you use the space?

The most important factor to consider is how you want to use your awning. If you want the awning to be a permanent part of the décor, then select a standard fixed awning. If you like to sunbathe sometimes and sit in the shade other times, then a retractable awning is for you.


  • What’s your décor?

Retractable awnings are great for practical use in the backyard. But if you want to achieve a polished, professional look for everyone to see, then you might consider a standard awning on the front of your home. Standard awnings don’t need to accommodate a retracting mechanism and can therefore be more ornate.


  • What is your climate?

Another thing to consider when choosing awnings is your local climate. In Southern California, we don’t have to worry about snow weighing down a standard fixed awning, but we do experience a few windy days. If areas around your home are vulnerable to strong gusts, then you may want to be able to retract your awning in order to avoid damage.


Whether you’ve decided on a standard or retractable awning, visit Moran Canvas Products and browse our inventory of different styles. We install commercial awnings, residential awnings, and solar screens—we even offer custom awnings to create just the style you’re looking for.

As the summer approaches, people want to spend more time outside. As a restaurant owner, it’s important to prepare outdoor dining, or you might be missing out on a lot of customers. Here’s how commercial patio awningscan give your restaurant extra space and boost your outdoor appeal.


  • More seating.

With a patio awning or series of patio awnings, there’s practically no limit to how much you can extend your restaurant space. When the weather is as pleasant as the indoors, diners will not only accept outdoor seating, but also specifically request it. You’ll find that people with children or dogs will find your outdoor seating to be ideal. Installing a patio awning could be the best business decision you ever made.


  • More enjoyable dining.

It’s not enough to simply install tables outside—a patio awning provides much-needed shade to prevent your customers from uncomfortable exposure to the sun. There’s nothing quite like enjoying a relaxing meal while staying cool under an awning’s shade. Outdoor dining also allows patrons to enjoy the view and check out the surrounding activities.


  • Improve your reputation.

People have a great time when they’re outdoors and the weather’s nice. If your patrons have a wonderful dining experience and enjoy your restaurant’s amazing food, then you’ll find that word of mouth will make your restaurant the talk of the town! A patio awning could greatly improve the look of your restaurant as well, encouraging passersby to take a closer look.

Moran Canvas: How to Care for Your Canvas Awning!

Owning canvas awnings, whether in a commercial or residential setting, adds beneficial elements to your home or business that you simply cannot get with other types of products. Awnings are a functional product that also creates a distinctive look, particularly when you choose custom awnings.

Like any investment, a certain level of care must be put into awning maintenance if you want to maximize their performance and lifetime. How you care for your awnings will depend largely on whether they are indoor or outdoor fixtures; here are the basics:

  • Outdoor Awning Care

Awnings that are installed outdoors are exposed to all of the elements, including animals. Dirt, dust, debris, and even bird droppings are likely to find their way onto your custom awning more often than not. The first step in preserving the integrity of your awning is to simply clean it. Take a stiff broom or brush to remove the offending items soon after they appear. If the debris is something that is likely to stain, then you’ll want to use a mild, lukewarm, soapy water mix to gently cleanse the area. Make sure to rinse well and allow the awnings to air dry on their frames.


  • Indoor Awning Care

If you’ve installed awnings indoors, then the most element exposure they are likely to see is sunlight, depending on their position. You’ll want to protect against color fading from the sun. Otherwise, a weekly dusting schedule and semi-annual wash schedule should be sufficient for care and maintenance.

If you are interested in installing awnings at your location, or simply have further questions about how to care for your awnings, then contact us here at Moran Canvas Products.

Moran Canvas: The Energy Saving Advantages of Solar Screens!

As the search continues for more and better ways to save money and energy, solar screens are increasing in popularity. As their name suggests, solar screens work to screen the sun’s energy and reduce its effect on a home. They are most commonly used on residential homes’ windows, but you may also see them in automotive windows and in commercial applications.

Since solar screens block the sun’s harmful UV rays, one of the major advantages of having screens is UV protection. While this is certainly one benefit of solar screens, there are financial and environmental benefits as well.

  • Solar screens block a great deal of heat from entering the home through the windows during the warmer months. Screens prevent solar rays from coming in contact with the window in the first place; thereby, the amount of heat the glass conducts is greatly reduced. Less solar gain on the home means your cooling system doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain a comfortable temperature. This means your cooling bill goes down and your carbon footprint is reduced because you don’t consume as much energy.


  • During the winter months, solar screens work in an opposite—but equally efficient—way. While there isn’t typically much solar gain during winter, solar screens do act as an insulation barrier for your windows. Less heat escapes through the glass, so your heating costs are reduced, which allows you to maintain the same financial and environmental benefits enjoyed in the warmer months. Solar screens also help to prevent blustery drafts from entering the home.
