Find The Canopy That Best Fits You

Posted on: January 14th, 2014 by Quik Shade


Depending on your outdoor needs, there is a canopy out there that is just right for you. Read on to learn more about the different canopies on the market, and how they can make spending time in the outdoors even better.

The Casual Outdoors Type.

You’re the kind of person that enjoys nature but also looks forward to heading home to a warm bed at night. You might spend time hiking during the day, spending a few hours at the beach or nearby park, or hanging out by the pool. You don’t have a lot of gear and don’t really want any either, but you want the time you spend in the sun to be enjoyable and safe.

For this type, a small portable canopy is ideal. Something that can provide protection from the sun, while also not being too bulky or heavy to carry around. This type of person is often single, so all they need is shelter for themselves. Small canopies often come with a matching backpack storage bag that makes packing up and getting on to the next destination easier. Speed, portability, and efficiency are the characteristics of a small canopy.

The Professional.

For someone who needs heavy duty protection for frequent outdoor events, there are commercial canopies that will do the trick. These are for your flea markets, farmer’s markets and outdoor festivals where you may spend up to 10 hours in direct sunlight. Outdoor sellers have to work in all sorts of weather, so a commercial canopy that can withstand wind and even rain is necessary.

These canopies have a heavier duty steel frames to withstand longer days out and heavier weather conditions. Add canopy accessories like a zip up wall for extra privacy or weighted plates for added stability. Customers will be able to browse your goods under the shade of a canopy that provides UV protection and enough space to move around comfortably.

The Average Joe.

You love a good barbeque in the backyard or at the park, but also don’t want a lot of fuss when it comes to equipment. You love spending time outdoors and do so whenever you can, but also have a no nonsense attitude when it comes to most things. You’re the parent, spouse, sibling, or friend that people rely on to get things done.

For you, a canopy that’s easy to set up and take down, while still having the size and stability needed for outdoor gatherings is a good pick. This is the average canopy that is also a bestseller. It has all the features you’d expect from a good canopy, including affordability, long lasting durability, and construction that makes it easy to set up anywhere.

The Social Butterfly.

You love throwing parties, either for your own loved ones or as a profession. Weddings, birthdays, showers, and anniversary parties can all be lovelier when thrown outdoors under the shade of a canopy. For these types of events, something a little classier is appropriate. Guests will be taking in the colors, textures and arrangement of the party, so it’s important to have a canopy that not only protects them but also looks good.

Party canopies have thicker tops that provide extra protection to ensure that party guests stay comfortable. Vented tops allow for air circulation as well. These types of canopies have tops that can be easily changed to coordinate with whatever festivities you’re planning. These canopies bring together elegance and dependability.
