Today's awnings offer many benefits and one of the greatest benefits is energy savings. Exterior fabric window awnings can reduce interior heat in homes and businesses during periods of direct sunlight by 77 percent according to a study by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers. Since awning fabric doesn't trap heat and moisture, an awning can reduce air-conditioning costs by as much as 25%.
Depending upon the applications, commercial and residential awnings can assume a variety of shapes and sizes. The basic shapes of these fabric structures make design options limitless.
Awning fabrics are available in hundreds of colors and patterns, can accentuate a building entrance and/or serve as signage. Stylish, yet practical, today's awnings provide protection from harmful UV rays, nature's uncontrollable elements.
Awnings are affordable and a great investment for any home or building.
Benefits of Awnings and Canopies
Fabric awnings and canopies can meet various design needs. Many modem fabrics are long- lasting, bright, easily cleaned, strong and flame-retardant. Modem frame materials offer high strength-to-weight ratios and corrosion resistance. The proper combination of these properties can result in safe, strong, economical and attractive products.
These systems afford protection from the sun, rain, snow, sleet and hail. In certain configurations, they can also protect from wind.
Applying graphics directly to awning fabrics provides identification and/or advertisement without the need for "add-on" sign structures.
Creative designers and architects can develop useful and intriguing designs for modem awning and canopy systems that incorporate shape, light, color, texture, graphics and structure, at modest cost. Most awning frames are custom made by cutting, bending and welding metal tubing, and fitting the fabric to the frame. With these custom methods, almost any shape and size can be attained and covered with awning fabric.
Hence, the same surface can serve at least three necessary functions: weather protection, identification and architecture.
