Courtyards, decks and overlook patios have become an industry standard when designing for hotels, restaurants and clubs. Being able to offer customers a view, or even better, an outdoor seating view gives a business a leg up on it’s competitors. It is the first choice for seating for many customers and will fill up more quickly than indoor seating. Every club owner or restaurant owner knows this. However, needing to also plan for inclement weather is a necessity in order to extend the useable season.

Fabricated of a durable vinyl construction, the weave allows for flexibility, some passage of air and a high degree of visibility from the interior.
In the great southwest wind and sun are the greatest sources of both energy and property damage. Winds cool the air and sun warms the exterior walls of buildings. Exterior screening can be the most effective way of taking advantage of these elements.
