Where to Install Commercial Awnings and Canopies

Awnings and canopies can enhance a wide variety of commercial buildings. A few examples of where you might install a metal canopy or awning include the following:

  • Storefronts
  • Office buildings
  • School entrances
  • Apartment complexes
  • Entryways for hospitals or medical practices
  • Stand-alone restaurant buildings
  • Shopping mall facades

Benefits of Having an Industrial Shade Structure

When installed on the front of a commercial building, industrial shade canopies and awnings have a lot to offer:

  • Energy savings: A canopy or awning can provide shade from the sun, helping to keep buildings cooler in the summer and lightening the load on an air conditioning system. If you want to help lower your operation’s carbon footprint, installing a canopy or awning can help you do so without compromising occupant comfort.
  • Shelter: Awnings and canopies provide weather protection by offering shelter from the elements. At a school, students can gather under an awning while waiting for the day to start and the building to open. People waiting in front of a shopping mall for a bus or taxi can stand under an awning and get shelter from the sun or rain.
  • Visibility: Since awnings and canopies project from the front of a building, they can help make your business more eye-catching or make it stand out in a crowd of other structures.
  • Increased square footage: Depending on the size of your awning or canopy, it can expand the footprint of your business. You could install a doorway awning, add seating under the awning or add a few outdoor tables beneath it to increase how many people can comfortably spend time at your facility.
