An awning is a secondary covering attached to the exterior wall of a building. It is typically composed of canvas woven of acrylic,
cotton or polyester yarn, or vinyl laminated to polyester fabric that is stretched tightly over a light structure of aluminium, iron or steel.
The configuration of this structure is something of a truss, space frame or planar frame. Awnings are also often constructed of
aluminium understucture with aluminium sheeting.
Awnings can be used for many different purposes whether you need one for your garden or for your commercial needs.The location of an awning on a
building may be above a window, a door, or above the area along a sidewalk. With the addition of columns an awning becomes a canopy, which is
able to extend further from a building, as in the case of an entrance to a hotel. Restaurants often use awnings broad enough to cover substantial
outdoor area for outdoor dining, parties, or reception. In commercial buildings, an awning is often painted with information as to the name,
business, and address, thus acting as a sign or billboard as well as providing shade, breaking strong winds, and protecting from rain.

Choosing the right fabric for your product.
Awning fabrics come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. Choosing the right material involves more than just looking at your budget.
The type of material you use can save you in the long run. Some of the materials awning fabrics are made of include: Vinyl, Acrylic, Polyester Vinyl
Composite, Metal, and other natural materials.
Vinyl and Polyester Composite fabrics offer durability and are water proof. The vinyl fabric stays tight on the frame and is inherently fire retardant.
The material is light and flexible. The composite offers versatility and flexibility for both residential and commercial applications.
Acrylic fabrics are more durable than traditional cotton blend canvas. Awnings made with acrylic fabrics offer an appealing design element and repel water
but they should not be considered water proof. Acrylic fabric awnings are great for homes located in humid areas; they resist mildew and ultraviolet light wear and tear.
All awning fabrics have been rigorously tested in laboratory and field situations for weathering, durability, and flame-retardancy.
The fabrics used for awnings and canopies will differ slightly in weight and translucency. We can advise you on the best choice for your home.
