Portable Outdoor Canopies: How to Get the Best for Your Needs
Canopies come in a variety of styles and applications, one of the most popular being the pop up variety, which is a cover that can collapse down to a size that is portable. The frame and the top are what comprise a basic canopy. The tops for the canopies available at Carports and More are made from polyester, treated inside and out with patented fade blockers, while the frames are made from tubular steel. Here are five things you must do to ensure you're getting the right one for your needs:
1. Choose rustproof. Our canopies are bonded with Dupont™ thermoset baked on powder coat, which prevents chipping, peeling, rust and corrosion. They are available in a variety of sizes and a range of colors. They are great for use as ticket booths, point-of-purchase displays, portable dressing rooms, event registration purposes and product sampling stations.
2. Think about how often you will be using it. It's wise to buy a outdoor canopy (as opposed to just renting one) if you think you will be using it often. For example if you want to take part in outdoor exhibits or you regularly have guests in your backyard, it would be a good purchase. Our commercial use canopies can go for as little as $200, but most of our pop up and other varieties cost around $90.
3. Do you need to advertise? If so, it would be a great place for your logo. Our Sports Series pop up canopies come with zippered sidewalls, again perfect for use as a billboard. Apart from the advertising benefit, it offers more protection from the elements, and can even be used as a tent. These canopies are easy to assemble, and need only 1-2 people to set them up in less than a minute.
The great thing about canopies is their adaptability for numerous uses. If you're having an open-air social gathering they can cover your guests and your food, but it's also great for everyday uses, such as protecting your vehicle from the sun's UV rays. Take your time and look into all the different canopies andgarage kits we have available at Carports and More. We promise it will be worth it!
