Suspended Canopies & Awnings and Metal Awning Manufacturers
When it comes to metal awning manufacturers, many have just a few options to choose from. It might be just one or two designs they have, or it could be the limited finishes to their offerings. One of the options that appears to have little flair are suspended canopies, but at MASA Architectural Canopies we can provide a range of options for your hanger rod canopies and other suspended awnings. These kinds of suspended canopies are utilized in many different places including storefronts, dealerships, educational facilities, medical facilities, and more.

Suspended Canopies And Hanger Rod Canopies
There are different options when it comes to adding a suspended canopy to a building. In some cases, it can work to make it a cantilevered canopy where beams are protruding from the building that can carry the load of the canopy. This feature makes it look like the canopy is floating above the space it protects However, this isn’t always a practical option so there are other ways to keep up a suspended canopy.
Hanger rods are a common option for suspended canopies. These hanger rods provide a way to transfer the weight to the building while still looking decorative. Even these hanger rods can be customized to have a certain look to them that may match other elements of the building. Finally, your suspended canopy could also be held up with posts on the corners opposite from those attached to the building.
Awnings are usually easier to mount so that they appear suspended. This is often due to their size, usually smaller than full canopies over large entrances. However, even large awnings might require other options to help support their suspension. Cantilevered awnings are typical because of the small requirements of the awning, and when you use one of our aluminum suspended awnings this is usually the case because of the light weight.
Getting the right suspended canopies and awnings from metal awning manufacturers can be challenging, especially if they only have limited designs. With MASA Architectural Canopies we have several existing designs for your suspended canopy or awning, or we can create a custom suspended awning based on your unique needs and desires.
