Metal Canopies

Use this free downloadable 3-part specification to specify metal canopies: aluminum-framed, wall, and post-supported metal awnings by D8 Products, Inc.

What are metal canopies?

A roof-like structure that is installed over the entrance or windows of a building. Made of aluminum, which is a lightweight and durable metal that is resistant to rust and corrosion.

Why they are important for buildings:

  • Protection from the elements: Protection from the sun, rain, and snow to protect the building’s entrance and windows from the elements. This can help prevent water damage, which can be costly to repair.
  • Aesthetic appeal: Enhance the aesthetic appeal of a building by adding a distinctive architectural feature that can complement the building’s design.
  • Energy efficiency: Reduce energy costs by providing shade.  To reduce the amount of heat that enters the building through the windows. This can help reduce the load on air conditioning systems, which can help lower energy costs.
  • Safety: Sheltered area for people to wait outside the building. Which can help protect them from the elements and reduce the risk of slips and falls.

What are aluminum metal car shelters and walkway covers for buildings?

Structures made of aluminum material protect and shelter cars, pedestrians, and building entrances from the elements.

Aluminum car shelters are freestanding structures, placed over a car or multiple cars to protect them from the sun, rain, snow, and other weather conditions. These shelters usually consist of a metal frame with a sloped roof and are open on all sides to allow for easy access to the vehicle(s).

Walkway covers, on the other hand, are structures that are attached to a building to provide shelter for pedestrians walking underneath. Used to protect building entrances, walkways, or other outdoor areas from the sun, rain, and other weather conditions. Walkway covers are made of a metal frame, with a flat or sloped roof customized to fit the specific needs of a building or outdoor area.

Both aluminum metal car shelters and walkway covers are popular choices for being durable lightweight, and low maintenance. Customized to fit a building’s design style and painted or finished to match.
