Types of Canopies

Hanger Rods

Hanger rod canopies are a great choice for storefronts, shopping centers, restaurants, office buildings and schools. They can be designed with corrugated decking to protect entryways, loading docks and windows from rain and snow, or with louvered blades that provide passive shade protection for windows on storefronts and offices. Hanger rod canopies, made from extruded or roll-formed aluminum, are rust and maintenance free, designed with high load capacities. They are available in a variety of designs and colors to complement any architecture style.

Metal Deck

Metal deck canopies provide a clean, contemporary look for storefronts, offices and other commercial properties while providing protection from the sun, rain and snow. Integrated gutter systems with downspouts or scuppers divert water away from doorways and windows.

Metal Shade

Metal canopies are perfect for providing shade for patios, decks, and outdoor seating areas as well as shading windows and storefronts from direct sun. A louvered canopy will provide shade for a sunny area while giving it an open and airy feel, while a canopy with a solid deck will provide complete sun protection for your outdoor space.

Arched Metal

Arched metal canopies give a high profile, modern and sophisticated look to storefronts, shopping centers, office buildings, parking garages and other commercial buildings. An arched canopy can complement architecture with curved features or make a grand statement over an entryway, while protecting your customers and your storefront from the elements.

Walkway Metal

Metal walkway canopies, whether straight or curved, provide a sturdy long-lasting structure with a refined, modern look that complements many contemporary styles of architecture. Hanger rod, cantilever or post supported metal canopies are a great choice for protecting long walkways between buildings or leading up to an entrance.

Metal Fascia

Metal canopies are a popular choice for retail stores, office buildings, hotels, churches, schools, restaurants and other businesses wanting a sleek, contemporary look. Metal fascia canopies can have a solid deck with an interior gutter system to protect doorways and windows from rain and snow or can be constructed with a louvered deck to provide shade for windows and patios. We offer a variety of finishes in standard or custom colors and designs, including hanger rod, cantilever or post supported canopies.


A patio cover makes your deck or patio more inviting and comfortable for dining, entertaining or relaxing outside. Unlike a retractable awning that only provides sun protection, a patio canopy is designed with an aluminum frame and will protect your outdoor space from not only full sun, but also rainy or windy weather, making your outdoor space more useable. Side panels or curtains can be added for extra protection from unseasonable weather and to extend your outdoor season.
