Enhancing the Alfresco Experience

The British weather has never been particularly conducive to dining outdoors, yet for many, every sunny day we get, we take advantage of the temporary warm conditions and soak up the sun, preferring to dine or drink in pub gardens or restaurants that have terraces, however, the truth is that the average pub garden has often got sad looking broken timber benches sitting forlornly under shoddy lightweight umbrellas that have little purpose except on the warmest of days.

However, at last things are changing in the UK hospitality industry where the European ‘Café Culture’ has begun to take off, thanks to the introduction of all-weather canopy structures both permanent and retractable.

ArcCan have a huge range of pre-engineered tensile fabric structures ready to suit most applications, but such is the flexibility of our designs, most are fully adaptable to suit individual needs. We have recently added to our range, Pratic retractable awnings both manual and remote controlled, which create open or fully enclosed dining areas that make better use of the outdoor space regardless of the weather, this increases the number of covers every day, instead of simply when the weather is fine, so the return on your investment is assured.

ArcCan offer the complete package: we assess your requirements and discuss options, produce concept drawings and advise on suitability and cost-effectiveness, we then supply and install to meet your schedule, working with groundworkers and other trades and finally offer an aftercare package that makes sure that your investment is fully protected.
