Winter Vestibule Enclosures – A Great Way to Showcase Care for Your Customers
During these hot summer months, we sometimes forget how cold and unforgiving our New York City winters can be. Temperatures can hover below freezing for days and the wind tunnel effect created by those long city streets can bring an icy wind that will chill you to the core. There is nothing like the feeling of entering a nice warm building after walking through the freezing cold and windy city streets. But our buildings were not always designed to effectively shield us from wind, snow, rain, and hail. Many of the older city buildings were built without a vestibule or lobby area. This means that everytime when someone enters or exits through the front door, that cold wind and rain or snow can whip right inside and cause those eating, drinking, shopping or gathering in your building or establishment to be uncomfortable. Not only that, but you may even lose valuable seating area because no one wants to be near the front entrance due to the cold draft. Retrofitting your building with a lobby which can be an extremely costly and space-consuming project. Luckily the most cost-effective and energy efficient way to resolve this problem doesn’t require a teardown and rebuild of your entrance. Our solution, a winter vestibule enclosure, will keep your customers dry and warm by creating a vestibule or enclosure that fits perfectly to your existing building architecture. It allows for guests to enter a small area outside your building that shields the inside from the cold harsh wind before they enter the main establishment. These enclosures can be configured to many different sizes and shapes, and many restaurants will use a larger version of them to retain an outdoor seating area in the winter time as well.
With Winter vestibule enclosures, you no longer need to be worried about the threat from chilly winds, snow, or hail. Installing a vestibule is a great way to protect your customers waiting outside your building from the elements while simultaneously providing a cozy atmosphere to the ones already inside. In this post, we’ll talk about the benefits of winter vestibule enclosures for your business.
First things first – An overview of vestibule enclosures
A vestibule is a cabin or a small room that is installed at the entry of a building to connect the outside and inside. These structures are made of high-quality outdoor fabric such as Sunbrella fabrics and a steel frame. A vestibule can serve as a waiting room, lobby, closet for coats, or a comfortable resting place for your customers before they enter your building. They can be used to create extra seating areas or to cover an existing outdoor patio. They are also sometimes used as a storage shed.
Benefits of winter vestibule enclosures for your business
Winter Vestibules have numerous benefits. They can also be custom designed for your business. You can request a custom business theme including your business’ logo.
