We are the leading resource for outdoor awnings in the entire United States, and we are ready to help you add character and distinction to your building, no matter what business you have.
Benefits of Aluminum Frames and Canopies
Often when you talk about using aluminum for anything, people are thinking of something easily crushed or manipulated like a beer can. What they don’t realize is that those are very thin-walled containers and that is not what we handle. We use thick-walled tubular aluminum and other stiff aluminum materials to build our aluminum frames and canopies. These structures don’t easily bend or break, making them ideal for mounting on the exterior of a building when you want both strength and light weight. Along with the weight reduction compared to many other materials, aluminum does not rust which means you will not be losing the load-carrying capacity over time. This lighter weight also makes it easier to span much longer runs, allowing you to do more architecturally interesting things with the aluminum frames and canopies.
What Options Are There with Aluminum Frames and Canopies?
The better question is: what options AREN’T there with aluminum frames and canopies? We can do the more traditional awnings like a waterfall with valance, patio style slanted, or a half barrel design for over walkways, or we can custom design your special awning with curves and angles that match your distinct style and color. These can be mounted with hangar rods with a variety of wall plates to match and complement your building, or you might choose to have posts on the outer edge or make it a cantilever option where it looks to be floating from your building.
