Myths That Have Popped Up Regarding Aluminum Canopies
There are many businesses that make use of aluminum canopies. They can be great for advertising your business, expanding the usable outdoor space you have, and providing people with a shaded area to shield themselves from the sun. These benefits are all true, but other pieces of information you may have heard about them might not be as true. Today, we’ll be discussing myths that you could hear about aluminum canopies.
“They Draw in Lightning”
Since aluminum is a type of metal, it sounds reasonable to assume that an aluminum canopy would act like a lightning rod to your business. Fortunately, aluminum canopies are no more susceptible to lightning than canopies that are made from other materials. If, hypothetically, your canopy was struck by lightning, your canopy still wouldn’t catch fire because metal isn’t combustible. To be safe, though, an electrical engineer can provide insight as to what regulations need to be followed to make your canopy as protected as possible.
“Aluminum Canopies Will Rust and Dent Easily”
You want your canopy to last as long as possible. If you’ve ever heard that aluminum canopies will dent and rust quickly, we’re here to assure you that they’re much more durable than that. Aluminum is a material that is resistant to corrosion, and it can withstand all sorts of adverse weather conditions. This means an aluminum canopy can be a great long-term investment.
“They are Expensive”
While canopies can get expensive upfront, their long-term value makes them economically-sound investments. You can go years without needing to invest in a new canopy, so while the money you spend initially may seem large, you’ll get more than enough perks out of it later to justify the purchase.
