Winter Vestibules Enclosures

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.

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 vestibule removal and off-season storage when the vestibule is not in use.

Types of 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. Because we fabricate each vestibule, we can customize your entrance enclosure to meet your specific needs and space. Brooklyn Signs also provides vestibule installation and has unique printing options for those that want something that stands out on the busy Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Jersey City streets. Rush orders may also be available. 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.

Installation and Storage Services

Brooklyn Signs offers installation, removal, and storage services for our vestibules. This makes it convenient to put up the vestibule when needed and keep it properly stored in the off season with no hassle to you.
