Custom Vestibules Manufacturers

Vestibules are a type of awning signage that encloses an entryway with the purpose of shielding it from the weather. They’re often used as temporary winter enclosures, seasonal features that can be put up for several months during the worst of the year’s weather before being taken down when the season ends. Its structure can also serve as a unique and eye-catching signage that encourages potential customers to come inside.

Custom Vestibules in NJ with Blue Dot Signs

A vestibule is made from a metal frame and wrapped with a weather-resistant fabric, most commonly vinyl. They provide wind protection and help regulate temperature when the vestibule encloses an entry door. They can cover the:

  • Entryway Sides - They can be used as wind blockers that leave the front pathway to the entrance open and unenclosed.
  • Entire Entry Area - They can form a small room with wind protection doors to create an effective buffer zone between the indoor and Outdoor area.

We use a vinyl fabric manufactured by Sunbrella. This fabric is UV-resistant to prevent fading, and available in an array of colors to match your building’s exterior or business colors.

The vinyl Sunbrella fabric that our printed entry vestibules are made with can be personalized to your business’s brand with custom colors, logo, graphics, and more.

Our Pantone color-matching capabilities make it possible for us to perfectly match any color scheme or trademarked logo for any custom made enclosures. The frame is crafted out of metal and designed to withstand wind gusts when properly installed. Available metals include:

  • Aluminum
  • Powder-Coated Aluminum
  • Steel
If you want to match the color of your frame to the vestibule fabric, we can provide that as well. The frames are sturdy, adjustable for most entryway dimensions, and able to be packed up and stored if they’re being used for seasonal vestibules. Installation and reinstallation is easy, and each one is meant to withstand the elements and last for years at a time.

Benefits of an Entrance Enclosure

Whether you choose to personalize your vestibule with your business logo, or simply use it for function at your storefront, vestibules offer many benefits to business owners. They can:

  • Provide Comfort - A vestibule will prevent an unpleasant gust of wind from coming inside each time someone opens the doors. It also offers better temperature control for both heating and cooling so that customers inside remain comfortable.
  • Reduce Energy Costs -Because they are a barrier against outside temperatures, vestibules help insulate your business and reduce the cost of heating and AC depending on when they’re used.
  • Last for Years - Sunbrella vinyl is made for durability, so you can expect your vestibule to function for years with proper maintenance and storage when not in use.

The benefits of relying on Blue Dot Signs for your restaurant entrance enclosures and other commercial vestibules goes beyond high quality fabrication. We also offer the services needed to safely install your vestibule, remove it at the end of the season, and handle any repairs as your vestibule ages.

Uses of Vestibules in NJ

Any business that has an entrance directly from the outside can benefit from a vestibule. They are most commonly used, however, for places that customers will spend an extended amount of time in without the protection of a coat such as:

  • Restaurants
  • Bars
  • Cafes
  • Building Entrances

Most businesses keep their vestibules installed only during the cooler months to offer wind protection. Other places leave theirs up longer or even year round because of how effective they are at lowering heating/AC bills as well as their appeal to those passing by.
