Just wondering what some of you might be using to block out the high winds or sun on your kiosks? Something fabricated or tarps?February 11, 2015 at 6:33 pm #10731RobbieParticipant
I own a kiosk and (due to the local health dept) had to get a netting to go around the kiosk. You may be able to see it in my avatar here..
I had it made at a local upholstery place.. It wasnt cheap but it does the job…on 100 degree days, its shady and allows the breeze to flow through. It helps cut down on wind so cups dont blow away.
Mine snaps on the sides. It can be taken off when we finish for the day or left off if we wish. Its made of some canvas type material with very small diameter holes…it feels like very strong and thick tent or screening material.
Hope this helps.February 11, 2015 at 9:23 pm #10733JeffParticipant
Looks nice! Do you have anything to protect from rain?
I was thinking of having something made similar to this but with clear or light colored vinyl. Maybe a couple of mesh windows to have a breeze flow thru that could be zippered or velcroed over with the vinyl.
I’ve been using blue poly tarps with clamps. Not the most attractive, but it gets the job done.
I only use them if really needed because I like the openness which allows me to interact with the customers more.February 16, 2015 at 2:36 pm #10742RobbieParticipant
I dont really have a rain problem so I cant answer that. (We are in California and it rarely rarely rains here. :)
I have this screen around the kiosk due to the health department in my county wanting me to be “fully enclosed”. However, that was before they saw me fully in action. As the summer progressed, the inspectors that came around told me several times they didnt care and I could have gone without it. But I have it and for those places that want to enforce, I can use it.
We choose to use it anyway due to helping with the wind and dust somewhat. Plus its pretty good for providing a cooling shade.
The screen also helps with hanging signs, cups, etc so we put it to good use.
The snaps on the top and bottom hold it into place tightly and we can velcro the windows as we see fit. We have little square cut-outs if we wanted to block out our windows or open them up.March 21, 2015 at 12:31 pm #11161JIMParticipant
I just had my 12′ Kiosk done.
I had a screen placed on the rear from pole to poll. This was to keep the state of New Hampshire happy.
I then had a sunbrella canvas (usin the same snaps as the screen) to completly surround the kiosk so iwhen Im at a fair for three or four days, we just snap it around. This is easier and takes less time than lowering and raising the roof. I wish I was able to post pictures because it came out gret. They matched both the screen and cover to the snowie kiosk.
You can look me up on FB and I’ll send you the pic’s.
