Metal Architectural Awnings
Among the most popular types of architectural awnings are metal awnings. Metal awnings are functional for the traditional purposes of awnings – durable, reliable, and ideal for protecting walkways, entrances, and other areas from the weather and elements. A unique benefit of metal awnings over more traditional fabric awnings is the sleek, streamlined, and refined style they offer. They are also generally more durable than many types of fabric awning.
Louvered Metal Awnings
Louvered awnings typically have an articulated louvered blade, which can be adjusted by the owner. This adjustment allows owners to be able to control the amount of sunlight that passes through the blades. It can also help during inclement weather such as rain and snow, to provide fuller coverage and ensure that the area underneath the awning is kept safe and dry.
Louvered metal awnings provide distinct benefits, such as controlling heat gain in a building. In turn, this can help reduce the building costs paid toward heating and cooling needs. The adjustable nature of these awnings helps create a more versatile benefit for customers – both functionally and visually. They are customizable, available in several different coat finished, profiles, and perimeter profiles.
Some key features of louvered awnings may include:
- Structural welded frames
- Mechanisms that hinge, fix, and lock
- Fixed arm designs
- Distinctive architectural designs
- Available as premade or custom-designed
Suspended canopies are a type of architectural awning that add a modern and professional look to buildings, especially businesses. They are especially useful in cases where a more durable type of protection is required, but building owners would like to avoid items like foundations or columns to support them. These canopies can be built-to-order, ensuring that systems can handle the loads mandated by local building codes.
