Vestibules

Vestibules are a wonderful way to keep your guests comfortable. Commonly used as restaurant entrance enclosures, vestibules act as a buffer between the inside of your business and the inclement weather outside. At Brooklyn Signs, we fabricate professional looking vestibules that won’t sacrifice the appearance of your building for comfort, including custom design vestibules to meet the needs of your business.

Vestibules Makers, Installers and Storage Services NYC

NYC has both weather extremes. There are times when it’s too hot and humid, and times when it is far too cold. Many businesses use vestibules to help manage these weather shifts. Installing a vestibule at the entrance to your business can keep your guests comfortable and your costs down.

At Brooklyn Signs, we can fabricate and install vestibules at your business entrance. We also offer vestibular removal and off-season storage when the vestibule is not in use.

Examples of Our Vestibules

What Are Custom Vestibules?

Vestibules can be installed outside the entrance of your building or business. They are sometimes referred to as "restaurant entrance enclosures" because they are common among places where people sit indoors often.

Vestibules are set up on the exterior of the property right in front of the door. They enclose the area around the door to provide a barrier between inclement weather outside. When the door opens, the vestibule offers wind protection. During winter, the vestibule helps keep cold air from coming in and the warm inside from going out. When used in summer, the vestibule can also reduce energy usage.

Vestibules tend to be used seasonally, but although some restaurants and other businesses do choose to keep vestibules up permanently. Larger vestibules can also be used for outdoor seating.

  • We build our vestibules with 1” steel tubing for maximum stability even in high winds. Weather resistant fabric is then stretched over the frame. With over 50 colors of fabric to choose from, we have options that match your building’s facade and your brand.
  • To prevent accidents, we recommend installing a window in your vestibule so customers can see those coming from the opposite direction. These windows are made of high-quality, durable vinyl. For businesses looking to install an entry vestibule permanently, we also offer glass and plexiglass options. These materials allow for a professional, long lasting doorway enclosure.

Benefits of Vestibules

For those cold days in NYC, winter enclosures are a must for restaurants, bars, cafes, and other venues. Some of the benefits of installing an entry vestibule include:

Protect Customers from the Elements

Vestibules provide a buffer between your guests and the elements outside. When the main door opens, the vestibule blocks the wind and keeps the cold air out of your space. This helps keep you guests comfortable.

Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings

In addition to keeping the cold air out, vestibules also keep the warm air in. Save on costs when heat is not escaping each time the door opens.

Frequently Asked Questions and Resources

What is Your Return Policy?

Your satisfaction is our goal. While we cannot offer returns on most custom products, we will accept any returns when it is our error, and we have created something outside of scope. Any time we have made an error, we will accept a return and discuss the idea of creating a new sign in its place. If you ever receive a broken sign, or you find that a sign isn’t working properly (such as a neon sign), please let us know right away.

What Signs Are Best For Indoors?

All signs last longer when they are inside of your property. Some signs, like neon signs and foam board signs, are almost exclusively meant for indoors. However, metal signs, vinyl signs, aluminum signs, wood signs, and nearly all the signs listed above for outdoor signs also work great as indoor signs depending on your needs.

What Signs Are Best For Outdoors?

There are many different signs that are durable enough for the outdoors. Some of the best materials include wooden signs, aluminum signs, plastic signs, and PVC signs. Banners and vinyl signs can also be great outdoors, but may not be meant to provide you with a permanent sign solution as the weather can cause staining and wrinkles. Many types of lighted signs, such as channel letters and light box signs, are meant for the outdoors.

What Are “Wraps” and How Do They Work?

Wraps are pieces of thin, self-adhesive vinyl. They fit on flat surfaces, such as metal and glass. They can come in black and white or full color, and they pop from whatever surface they are affixed to. We create primarily vehicle wraps and window wraps, branding your property, cars, and trucks and making sure that they provide you with a rolling advertisement that is designed to last.

How Can I Care For My Signs So They Last Longer?

Every sign has its own unique needs. Small metal signs need only be wiped down when it is dusty, and can withstand heavy cleaners. Banners can only be cleaned with gentle soap and water, and can only be rolled up – never folded – or they will have permanent creases and possibly damage the lettering. It is best to ask us after you order your sign, and we’ll gladly give you the information you need to continue to care for your sign.

What Are Sign Rentals?
