Door awnings or canopies are manufactured somewhat differently. Similar to other awning styles, the frame is a special aluminum extrusion, which is called the staple system. We then pull the fabric top covering tightly over the frame for a snug fit. We take this extra step to allow heavy rain and snow to slide off your awning.
There are stationary awnings for doors and windows that use a clear or bronzed cover panel for weather protection. These European style door canopies are engineered for year round use.
