Think about arriving at a Saint Francis hotel in a rainstorm or other bad weather. Isn’t it welcoming to have a canopy overhead to stay dry while you pull out luggage?
Or, think about a Saint Francis hot summer day spent at a hotel pool, rest area or picnic spot. A sunshade provides respite from the sun’s hot, burning rays, making relaxing hours even more enjoyable.
Canopies and sunshades are more than alluring architectural elements at hotels. They shield people from harsh conditions, whether for comfort (staying dry) or health (avoiding sunburn). Meanwhile, they add compelling visual characteristics to hotel building exteriors, or spaces where people gather.
Canopies and sunshades have similar purposes at hotels. They often share a construction element, too: curved metal.
The frameworks of these Saint Francis structures are normally steel tubing or wide-flange beams. Rolling them to their exact:specific dimensions requires skill and capability in tube bending and steel bending, performed on bending machines calibrated to achieve exact prescribed radii.
Curved canopies offer a special test. Their metal forming often shifts direction, with a straight section in the middle and curves on the edges.
Similarly, sunshade parts might be bent at different radii on the same piece, to adapt to the ever-changing angles of the Saint Francis 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, coupled with years of experience in metal forming, they’ll create a canopy or sunshade framework to perfectly complement your Saint Francis hotel building or its outdoor space.
The hotel guests protected beneath won’t take notice. They’ll just be thrilled you have them.
Canopies and sunshades are where functionality meets aesthetics. Both play a critical role in hotels, and sheltering the people who use them.
