Use this 3-part SimpleSpecs™ specification template to specify aluminum-framed, wall-supported metal awnings.
An aluminum-framed, wall-supported metal awning is an architectural element that can be installed over doors, windows, and other openings in commercial buildings. It is made of aluminum and is supported by an exterior wall. The awning’s purpose is to provide shading and protection from rain and snow to the area below it.
The awning can be fixed or retractable and attached to the building with either brackets or holes drilled into the walls.
Aluminum frame: The frame is made of aluminum and has various shapes available in curved and straight styles.
Wall support: The wall support must be strong enough to hold up the weight of the awning without causing any damage to it or the wall itself.
