The right shop front for you 

With different shop fronts and styles to choose from, you need to choose the right one for you, and the one that is most suited to your requirements. 

There is a range of shop fronts to choose from, including:

Wooden

A wooden shop front is typically used on more traditional shops — those that are underneath a shelter, so a little more protected from external elements, protecting the wood for slightly longer.  A wooden shop front gives the impression of an older look and feel.  It also allows for greater customisation as most wooden shop fronts can be painted to any colour and then painted again if you change your colour scheme!

Wooden shop fronts also allow for you to showcase your products in a more aesthetically pleasing way, but as mentioned with wood, you won’t be protected from the external elements like the protection an aluminium shop front can offer you.

Aluminium 

Aluminium is by far the material of choice when it comes to shop fronts.  They’re contemporary in style, robust, durable and easily mouldable into different shapes.  Aluminium is resistant to the natural levels of acid found in the rain, it is rustproof and recyclable.  

All in all, aluminium is long lasting and cost effective, making it a popular choice for many.

Glass

Glass shop fronts have two main benefits:  They are easy to clean, and it’s easy to showcase what’s inside, so offers great advertising opportunities.  It shows a sign of trust that the store in question has nothing to hide and is seen as honest. 

It is not always a case of picking one material for your shop front, but instead being able to have the option where you can choose to implement and incorporate multiple elements and materials.  For example, glass can be paired with aluminium to create a shop front which is durable and relevant, while allowing your customers to still window shop!

Onsite Fabrication

Onsite fabrication is vital in the process of getting a shop front fitted.  Regardless of the shop front, the overall design still needs to be fabricated so must be considered when looking at the whole process. 

Onsite fabrication is where the design and actual product is created and fitted onsite, as opposed to being made to measure in a factory. 

The benefits of onsite fabrication are that it allows your shop to get up and running much sooner, as your shop front is complete there and then.  It’s also more cost effective too, and you will also receive a better-quality job.  Because, as the experts are on site, they can get a feeling for the building, the measurements, and if these need to be adjusted ever so slightly, amends and alterations can be made there and then, rather than everything being taken away again to be re-measured and scaled. 

With Alan Carnall, you can trust us when we say there is a shop front for everyone.
