The Durability and Design of Architectural Metal Awnings

Our commercial building awnings and canopies are longer lasting than fabric options and offer design flexibility.

Aluminum Awning Longevity

Aluminum is the ideal material for a commercial canopy or awning because it’s incredibly durable. The metal resists corrosion and the outdoor elements to deliver a long life span. Many customers enjoy decades of use from our sturdily constructed metal awnings and canopies.

Additional benefits of aluminum include its reduced weight and affordability versus other construction materials. It doesn’t unnecessarily increase the building’s load, and its durability makes it cost-effective. It’s also environmentally friendly since it’s 100% recyclable. Plus, it installs easily and requires minimal upkeep, saving your property maintenance team time.

Custom Design Options

Sharchs works with architects and building owners like you to tailor our commercial awnings and canopies to your needs and tastes. Whether you want a sleek minimalist style that creates a modern vibe or a more traditional one that seamlessly harmonizes with your building, we’ll help you design and integrate it for architectural aesthetics.

We also offer over 100 RAL colors to choose from for a unique look. You can take inspiration from our past projects to jump-start your imagination about the possibilities for your building. This high customizability makes our shade solutions ideal for many structures.

Where to Install Commercial Awnings and Canopies

Metal 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
  • Hotels, motels and hostels
  • Places of worship
  • Convention centers and entertainment venues
  • 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 door awnings, storefront 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.
  • Visual appeal: A metal awning or canopy can improve your building’s curb appeal by enhancing its appearance. The many design options available can add a pop of color against an otherwise drab background and reinforce architectural themes.
