Benefits of Awnings and Canopies
Fabric awnings and canopies can meet various design
needs. Many modem fabrics are long- lasting, bright, easily
cleaned, strong and flame-retardant. Modem frame materials
offer high strength-to-weight ratios and corrosion resistance.
The proper combination of these properties can result in safe,
strong, economical and attractive products.
These systems afford protection from the
sun, rain, snow, sleet and hail. In certain configurations,
they can also protect from wind.
Applying graphics directly to awning fabrics
provides identification and/or advertisement without the need
for "add-on" sign structures.
Creative designers and architects can develop
useful and intriguing designs for modem awning and canopy
systems that incorporate shape, light, color, texture, graphics
and structure, at modest cost. Most awning frames are custom
made by cutting, bending and welding metal tubing, and fitting
the fabric to the frame. With these custom methods, almost
any shape and size can be attained and covered with awning
Hence, the same surface can serve at least
three necessary functions: weather protection, identification
