Aluminum Canopy System Options
To make sure you find the best system for your project, we work with many different types of aluminum canopy systems and styles. These are our available aluminum canopy options:
- Cantilevered canopies- Usually installed perpendicular to the building wall, but not always. Cantilevered designs tend to be more sleek and exude more of a modern look to a building. Cantilevered canopies are the most popular building attached canopy systems today. However, they do require advance planning as the building will require additional wall supports to withstand the moment reaction generated by the cantilevered design. Canopy Solutions does provide an engineered system so we always provide the engineering requirements to the engineer of record prior to construction.
- Overhead braced canopies -Overhead braced are cost effective, highly functional, aesthetically pleasing and suitable for almost all wall types. Overhead braced canopies are simply supported and therefore exert less load on the building wall.
- Column supported canopies (walkway covers or parking covers)-Walkway covers and covered parking are important for both keeping the elements off individuals as well as meeting the code requirements in many industries such as medical or education. For example, walkway covers and parking covers are popularly used to meet the requirements for medical facility areas including patient drop off, loading docks and egress walkway covers as well as covered walkways between buildings. Depending on the State, walkway covers between buildings and at drop-off areas must be covered for education facilities to keep students, faculty and visitors out of the elements.
