Aluminum Canopy Systems

Aluminum canopy systems have emerged as one of today’s top sunshade solutions for commercial applications. Business owners and managers choose metal building canopies first because they are more aesthetically pleasing than conventional fabric solutions. More importantly, the exceptional durability of an aluminum canopy provides years of reliable service with minimal maintenance requirements.

Aluminum canopy systems and outdoor metal awnings from Sharchs are versatile and attractive solutions that provide shade and protection from the elements, allowing businesses to use outdoor spaces like patios, walkways and other areas in all types of weather. We supply a comprehensive selection of high-quality metal canopies with fast turnaround times at some of the market’s most competitive prices.

Types of Aluminum Canopies We Offer

As a leading brand in sunshade design, engineering and manufacturing, we produce American-made products that stand out from competitors while exceeding customer expectations. We use premium-grade materials and ensure the highest quality control standards by keeping our operations under one roof.

Our lineup of aluminum canopy systems includes cantilevered designs, hanger rod-supported canopies and customized solutions tailored to the specific needs of your unique application.


Cantilevered Canopies

Cantilevered aluminum awnings are among the most flexible metal building canopy types. Cantilever systems typically feature an aluminum frame with parallel bars extending horizontally, with one end attaching to the building’s exterior. These designs shield doorways and windows without hanger supports, creating a visually appealing floating effect beneath the canopy.

Sharchs offers these commercial building awnings with various louver blades to create a unique exterior appearance.


Hanger Rod-Supported Canopies

Hanger rod-supported aluminum canopies can complement many types of architectural designs. These systems use rods or heavy-duty cables anchored to a supporting structure for stability and strength. Canopies supported by hanger rods are often used for larger areas, offering flexibility in size, shape and adjustability.

Choose from a range of finishes to complement your building’s palette or make a statement with a bold choice that echoes your brand’s colors.


Custom Canopies

Do you need a unique solution? Sharchs can help with custom design and fabrication if your application requires a specialized solution. Our team has the engineering know-how to build tailor-made awnings for wrap-around applications, architectural irregularities and other requirements. We can integrate one or more design features from other sunshade styles we offer, including cantilevers, hanger rods or architectural louvers.

We’ll work with you to create an optimized system based on the sun’s angle and your required protection levels.

Benefits of Aluminum Building Canopies and Outdoor Metal Awnings

Outfitting a commercial building with metal awnings from Sharchs provides numerous environmental, aesthetic and financial benefits.

Environmentally Friendly

Controlling the amount of sun inside your facility keeps the interior cooler. The Department of Energy estimates that awnings can decrease heat gain by up to 77%. That reduction translates into lower air conditioning demand for less environmental burden.

Aluminum canopies from Sharchs are also completely recyclable, generating no excess waste.

Visually Pleasing

Metal awnings can distinguish your business from the buildings surrounding it. These elements can help customers find you more easily and recognize your business’s branding. With so many styles and finishing options available, you can create a one-of-a-kind look that also enhances the structure’s curb appeal.


Sharchs commercial building awnings reduce your structure’s overall operating costs by cutting utility bills. They are durable solutions that manage years of use with limited maintenance needs. Aluminum resists rust and other corrosion and withstands extreme weather and temperatures well. When used with existing window treatments, awnings help prevent frequent replacement from fading.
