paratore.100556The less time you have to spend ordering materials, the more time you can spend on the job. In this month’s issue of Market Corner, we’re focusing on new processes that help make ordering Solair® products quicker and easier.

Watch a video from the Solair team about how ordering is easier and more accurate than ever and how to connect with the technical experts who can answer your questions.

We’re also offering the Retail Awning Display for sale to customers who want to provide an all-encompassing shade experience at home shows. The display is an ideal conversation starter for homeowners who often have trouble visualizing how an awning can transform their patio.

Customers who order the display for use at shows will receive show support from Solair. A product specialist will attend a show to provide training and assistance on using the display to educate homeowners about retractable awnings. Product specialists can also visit your shop for a training refresher for your staff on sales and marketing related to the full line of Solair shade solutions. Solair products provide shade solutions for the entire home: the Shade Inspiration Collection for interior applications; retractable patio awnings; vertical drop screens; and retractable window awnings.

We’re committed to providing world-class service for Solair customers – from sales and marketing training to worry-free ordering and delivery.

Retractable Awning DisplayGive your customers a shade experience like none other with the Retail Awning Display, available from Solair® Shade Solutions.

The display, which is ideal for home or trade shows, includes two Solair awnings – a Comfort and a Pro – that can extend and retract to demonstrate how simple they are to operate. With large, eye-catching graphics and holders for brochures and remote controls, the display organizes your sales materials and invites customers to learn more. With both awnings fully extended the display spans 20 feet and is 12 feet wide and 10 feet tall.

“The Retail Awning Display is an immersive experience for customers curious about awnings,” said David Heiman, Solair commercial sales manager. “It encourages people to ask questions, use the remote controls to extend and retract the awnings and provide a true vision of how an awning can transform the way they relax entertain in their backyard.”

The standard display is $2,500. Contact your sales representative for an order form. Three add-ons are available:

  • Monitor Kit – A 24-inch LCD TV with articulating side mount to play promotional looping material via USB drive or DVD player (not included). Cost: $425.
  • Outdoor Kit – Upgraded materials for outdoor use, including rubber pads to prevent abrasion and rust on display feet, stainless steel hardware, non-absorbent PVC replaces black infill panels and book display board. Cost: $300.
  • Light Kit – Custom powder coated “T” fixture with 100 watt halogen lights to simulate sunlight. Not recommended for outdoor use. Cost: $250.

Customers who order the display for use at a trade show can receive show support from the new Solair Product Specialist team.

“We are dedicated to helping you sell shade solutions,” Heiman said. “Product specialists can be available on request to attend shows with you and provide sales assistance.”

Product specialists are also available to visit shops and showrooms to retrain staff on selling shade solutions from Solair. Training includes consumer perspectives on awnings, marketing strategies and initiating conversations about awnings.
