This summer we were so excited to have had the opportunity to flex our fabrication muscles and show our multi-faceted skills to the community on a very special project for us, the new Enmarket located on Martin Luther King Boulevard in Savannah, GA. As many of you know, we are the “go to” source for anything shade related such as fabric commercial and residential awnings, metal canopies, shade sails, storm protection and so on. But for this project, we were challenged with the task of exceeding the norm and to fabricate custom stained Cypress wood shutters, custom metal louvered doors for an exterior trash bin, custom bike racks for the local SCAD kids and Savannah residents, in addition to the iconic Enmarket green powdercoated metal canopy with stained Cypress inlay. To say that we made more than shade on this project is not at all an exaggeration. This project like many before really speaks to us because we know that we can make anything out of metal and fabric and love to rise to the challenge to create whatever our clients can dream up!

Restaurant Sales increase when outdoor patio spaces are cool and comfortable.
That’s what restaurant owners throughout have realized again and again. The more comfortable their customers are the longer they will sit to drink & dine; and therefore, the more money the customers will spend. Check out the latest projects that Coastal Canvas Products has created for restaurants in Savannah, Bluffton, and Hilton Head Island. We provide our customers with a truly unique experience based on their individual needs. We collaborate with you to deliver solutions you can count on to bring your visual imaging, fabric, and shelter solutions to life. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, awnings, canopies, and retractable screens can offer protection from nature’s elements for your customers without sacrificing natural light. The sun can be harmful to your products and furnishings and uncomfortable for your employees and customers. Custom awnings together with vinyl curtains can also offer protection from rain that can make hard flooring slippery as people track water indoors and contain heat when the weather turns cold. We want your customers to have fun in the shade, not just in the sun!

Skin cancer is a disease that affects people of every age, gender and ethnicity. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70; in fact, more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the U.S. than all other cancers combined..but there is good news. Because skin cancer is chiefly a lifestyle disease, it is also highly preventable. About 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers and about 86 percent of melanomas are associated with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. Knowing the risk factors and practicing sun protection year-round are key to reducing your risk.
Protect yourself from the sun and enjoy the outdoors at the same time with a beautiful home enhancement such as an awning for your deck or patio. Our awnings at Coastal Canvas Products are made with Sunbrella shade fabrics that are high in UPF protection, and recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as an aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin as a part of a complete sun protection regimen, including the regular use of sunscreen.
Seek the shade, especially between 10 AM and 4 PM when the sun is strongest. An extra rule of thumb is the “shadow rule.” If your shadow is shorter than you are, the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation is stronger; if your shadow is longer, UV radiation is less intense. A retractable awning can be a wonderful asset to have as it provides sun protection when you want it then, with the simple touch of a button or the turn of a crank, your awning easily disappears so that you can enjoy the stars instead of the sun above.

With 2 years in a row of hurricane damage to our personal and business locations, we are no longer secure in the belief that severe storms do not hit in our Low Country area. It is critical to strategize and plan now on how to protect your home or business before the threat of a severe storm hits. Coastal Canvas Products are experts in storm protection products. We offer a large variety of Roll Shutters, Bahama Shutters, Colonial Shutters, High Impact Fabric Panels, Storm Panels, and Motorized Screens. Tropical Storm Hermine (2016), Hurricane Matthew (2016), and Hurricane Irma (2017) created great disruption to our community ; however, the impacts were far less than the potential. Fabric Storm Panels are lightweight and a fraction of the weight of steel or aluminum or plywood panels. They may be rolled, laid flat or hung for compact, easy storage. They are translucent and allow diffused light to enter and attractive for a flat clean look to match the exterior of your home. Rolling shutters are designed to water-proof windows and entrances in the worst possible conditions. Our rolling shutters have been tested to withstand hurricane force winds and rain, and to keep these conditions from damaging your property. Custom shutter or fabric panel orders are made specifically per each window and door opening. Allow 3-4 weeks minimum to manufacture so that your building is protected from hurricane strength wind gusts before the threat of the storm happens.
Contact Coastal Canvas Products today to learn how we can help protect your home or business from potential storm damage.

Shade Sails are a series of overlapping geometric shades that create a canopy shelter to provide sun shade and UV protection for a limitless variety of uses. The geometric forms are primarily rectangular. The inward curves along the sides of each shade fabric panel are engineered to help spread and distribute the tension placed at each connection point evenly over the entire sail. The result is a sail shaped sun shade capable of providing functional shade in an iconic architectural form.
Recently Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) contacted us to fabricate Shade Sails over their school Soccer field. The shade sails were the perfect solution to create much needed shade for the spectator seats. In addition for this SCAD project, we constructed custom designed aluminum metal panels to appear just like the exterior of a bee hive for the SCAD school mascot Art T. Bee. Check out this video to view these spectacular shade sails and metal hive panels, we couldn’t love them more.
At Coastal Canvas Products, we have created Shade Sails over residential pools, school playgrounds, church outdoor spaces, and backyard & restaurant patios, and more.
