Outdoor Canopies Mean Living Outside

By Jake D. Ladner

It is a beautiful day and you only have a small covered area to put a chair and enjoy the out of doors. You would like to have something bigger because the visitors are arriving but where will they sit? Looking into outdoor canopies might have been an option.

You can find many occasions where you would like an extra space outside. A wedding in a backyard, on church grounds, or a park, would be a wonderful setting. In this case you would need a very large canopy, or more than one, to protect your guests from the sun or a sudden rain. The large ones would certainly accommodate the number of guests that you would have and your wedding would be an event that will be remembered.

Perhaps you are planning a family reunion up at the cottage. You are going to need one of these awnings to protect the food and people from the intensity of the sun and that possible thunderstorm. This is a very special event and being prepared for the weather will make it great.

Parties around a pool can be fatal if there is no protection. If your guests, who are wearing bathing suits, cannot get out of the sun during the party they may get sunburn, which could be serious. It is important that there is a place where people can sit in a shaded area. A shelter would be vital.

Another reason why you might want one of these shelters is if you go to outdoor markets or trade shows. These are perfect as the pop up variety comes in a bag with spikes. They are available in a multitude of vibrant colors, fire resistant, waterproof, and resistant to UV rays.

There are many of these that are not permanent fixtures and are very mobile, moving them anywhere you would like. The varieties are many. After you have chosen one you can enjoy sitting out in the open air however being protected from the sun.

There is just a bit of assembly needed in the portable ones so they are appropriate for every occasion. They can be folded quite easily and they are very basic. There is a top and then poles for support. The very large ones usually need some assembly and are a little more complicated. If you are having a huge gathering these larger ones are perfect.

By putting one of these in your yard you can actually have an extra space for dining. The material is usually waterproof with the corners and ropes reinforced. The center pole is great and gives you the ease of being able to raise or lower the canopy.

Most of us think that they are always made of a flexible material. That is not so. There are some available that are quite rigid, sometimes made of tin. Whatever they are made of they will be a pleasure to own or rent.
