Think about driving up to a Houston hotel in a rainstorm or other uncomfortable conditions. Isn’t it convenient to have a canopy overhead to stay dry while you offload luggage?
Or, consider a Houston hot summer day spent near a hotel pool, rest area or picnic spot. A sunshade delivers respite from the sun’s hot, burning rays, making relaxing hours even more enjoyable.
Canopies and sunshades are more than attractive architectural features at hotels. They safeguard people from severe conditions, whether for comfort (staying dry) or health (preventing sunburn). Meanwhile, they add powerful visual qualities to hotel building exteriors, or spaces where people gather.
Canopies and sunshades have comparable functions at hotels. They regularly share a construction element, too: curved metal.
The frameworks of these Houston structures are typically steel tubing or wide-flange beams. Bending them to their exact:specific dimensions entails skill and know-how in tube bending and steel bending, carried out on bending machines calibrated to achieve exact prescribed radii.
Curved canopies pose a special challenge. Their metal bending often alters direction, with a straight section in the middle and curves on the edges.
Similarly, sunshade parts might be formed at different radii on the same piece, to adapt to the ever-changing angles of the Houston sun.
Challenging? Sure, but the metal-bending masters at Max Weiss Company tackle any beam or pipe bending project. Using state-of-the-art equipment, partnered with years of background in metal forming, they’ll create a canopy or sunshade framework to perfectly blend with your Houston hotel building or its outdoor space.
The hotel guests shielded beneath won’t take notice. They’ll just be glad you have them.
Canopies and sunshades are where functionality meets aesthetics. Both play a crucial role in hotels, and protecting the people who use them.
