An awning is a secondary covering attached to the exterior wall of a building usually overhanging a door or patio. It is typically either made of either sheet metal, a canvas covering woven out of acrylic, cotton or polyester yarn, or vinyl laminated to polyester fabric that is stretched tightly over a light metal structure comprised of aluminium, iron or steel. The configuration of the structure is similar to a truss, space frame or planar frame.
Awnings are great for protecting you and your property from the environmental exposure of sun or rain. Installing an awning over a patio will typically reduce the temperature of the patio by 20 degrees and block 99% of harmful UV rays not to mention the obvious advantages of having an awning during a rain storm.
