Awning Types and Their Significance

Posted on December 30, 2014 at 4:24 pm

An awning simply refers to a roof like structure made using plastic or canvas. Its design makes it serve as an ideal shelter over a storefront, main entrance to a corporate building, window or even deck. These structures are usually supported by strong metallic frames meant to help make them more secure against bad weather. It is interesting to note that sometimes, they are made using aluminum. Such types have proven to be more durable taking into consideration the superiority of aluminum and its resistance to tear and wear even under the worst of conditions.

These structural extensions are currently available in different designs. As a result they can be used anywhere either at home or at work. The main reason for setting them up either in a commercial or residential place is usually to provide shed (protection) from direct sunlight. It serves to cut the glare and Ultra violet rays not only from the outside but also from the inside. Apart from simply providing cool shade, these structures have also proven to be highly effective in reducing convection of heat. As a result it also significantly reduces the use of A/C systems which are characteristic of high energy consumption rates (expensive to run). (more…)
