Use solid awnings as an entrance cover, walkway cover, or a fixed sunshade over windows to improve energy efficiency and occupant comfort. These versatile awnings are easily combined with our Louvered Sunshades, adding a distinctive appeal to any building.
The objective of a solid awning is to block direct sunshine and weather from occupants as they enter or exit your building. In addition, awnings may also serve as a sunshade over windows to block direct sunlight from entering your living space. The most effective means of achieving this can be viewed in our How Sunshades Work section.
The use of awnings should provide the desired functionality while providing an attractive architectural element to your building. Utilize them over windows and doors, or combine them with our sunshade louvers, to achieve your desired aesthetic.
A variety of finishes are available from our Awning Finishes selection chart. Awnings can be painted with a baked enamel or Kynar 500 finish, or have an anodized finish applied. A variety of standard colors are available. Custom colors can be selected by sending us a color chip. We will use our computer match system to precisely match other building facade components.
