USAL Metal Awnings: Manufacturers
ABOUT METAL AWNINGS
Metal awnings range in size from small awnings to protect residential doors
and windows, up to large industrial awnings over loading docks. The
smaller metal awnings are designed to be decorative, as well as providing some
shade and protection from the elements. They are usually made of powder coated aluminum or copper. Large commerical and industrial metal awnings have a purely
practical purpose of providing rain shelter. They usually have a steel
structure, with coated steel or aluminum covering.
Retractable awnings are also available. These are constructed from interlocking aluminum slats, which can roll up when required and can be fitted to exterior doors.
The leading manufacturers, described below, have comprehensive websites, with information on all aspects, including online catalogs, colors and materials, and care and maintenance.
