Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) October 19, 2011 -- When it comes to running a successful business, sometimes it's the finishing touches - and not the budget basics - that stand out most. Yes, you've got to have a quality product, and yes, the building you operate from must be safe, clean, and attractive. But very often for customers that finishing touch is what's most important. Increasingly today's finishing touch is the building's awning. Consider it your in-air welcome mat - just not for your feet.
In terms of structure, intent and performance, an awning for business is about two bottom lines: protecting customers from natural elements like the sun (providing shade) and offering temporary shelter from rain, wind, or snow, as well as, serving as a highly effective marketing and branding tool. Consumers today prefer a simple, low-key experience without a lot of distracting clutter, making awnings an essential part of the exterior design scheme of any business.
While there's no doubt plenty of business awning competition from sun-soaked California to (recently) rain-soaked New York, only Academy Inc. brings to its customers a level of care, consideration, and knowledge that's second to none. In other words, call us and you will be treated as a person, not just a number on a sheet, Real people. Real quality. Real results; all built on responsive straight talk and open communication. A leading manufacturer and supplier of customized retractable awnings in the United States, LA-based Academy Inc. offers tailored awnings that blend vivid colors and sleek design - all with a modern vibe.
"When it comes to manufacturing top-of-the-line commercial awnings, we're among the leaders in the U.S.," said a senior executive with the company. "We create durable awnings that withstand weather for years at a time. Apart from business promotion, awnings also perform the task of shielding customers from sun and rain."
Awnings can be used by businesses for purely their functional purposes or weaved together with branding that can include printed names and logos. The objective defines the look of the awnings chosen. A well chosen awning, be it fabric or metal, can enhance the exterior of a store and, and at the same time, convey the message that the business wants to disseminate to its customers. Whether it's backlit structures, canopies, curtains, free-standing assemblies, or even cushions and umbrellas, awnings and related products can be customized to include text or graphics making them capable of acting as signage for the business along with performing their primary task of providing shade. Need some protection and promotion on the go? Academy's carriage top portable cloth products easily turn a "beach bake" into a "beach blast."
Schools, too, can benefit from Academy's signature style and approach, especially in challenging economic times when the cost of school expansion or the cost of modular units proves too high. The Calvary School, in Pacific Palisades, has done just that. Eager to preserve an outdoor cafeteria, the school sought Academy's help in designing and installing a custom shade structure. Thanks to the effectiveness of Computer Automated Design, (CAD), school officials had the opportunity to approve a "virtual structure" long before the real canopy's slated completion. Students can now enjoy an outdoor eating experience protected from the outdoor elements - all without breaking the bank.
Experts at Academy take care of every detail operating in a 30,000 sq. ft. facility where they custom design and manufacture each product on site to match clients' specific requirements. An awning for business is designed through Computer Aided Drafting & Rendering (CAD) using full line graphics application.

Academy professionals employ quality extended life threads, welded steel, aluminum and stainless frames. Completely closed and ground smooth, Academy business awnings are built to last - in whatever weather Mother Nature has in store.
