Metal Awnings are a great alternative to canvas awnings. Metal Awnings have sleeker designs and can create a greater visual interest. Metal awnings are a great way to create a new modern look to any building. Metal awnings come in all shapes and sizes. The most common types of metal awnings include: • Standing Seam • Metal Hanging Canopies • Architectural Louvers • Walkway Canopies • Aluminum Sunshades • Perforated Metal Awnings • Bahama Shutters Not all metal awnings have solid covers and it is a common misconception that they do not provide protection from the environment. Metal awnings such as sunshades and louvers filter sunlight by 50% and still provide drastic coverage and protection from the sun. Bahama Shutters are a metal-louver style awning and provide protection from the rain; Bahama Shutters manufactured by Identigraph are also hurricane rated and help protect windows in storm conditions when shut. Identigraph fabricates 100% of our awnings from aluminum with powder coated finishes. Aluminum awnings are resistant against rust and erosion, and though they are lightweight have not sacrificed any durability. Custom metal awnings can have various face panels such as stainless steel, copper, or brass. Changing these panels allows for a unique effect to any design. Additionally they can be wrapped with custom printed graphics to create an individual look. Metal awnings can be installed on any type of building. Most commonly metal awnings are found in commercial spaces such as: • Shopping Centers • Education Facilities • Government Buildings • Industrial Spaces • Banks & Financial Spaces Metal awnings are weather resistant and require less maintenance than other awning styles.
Vinyl and Backlit Awnings
Backlit Vinyl Awnings create tremendous visibility during day and night. Backlit awnings integrate graphics into the design on often create a more prominent visual feature than ordinary signage. Backlit awnings allow for the most design and creativity by using bright colors intended to grab attention of most all potential customers. Most commonly backlit awnings are installed at: • Restaurants • Retail Spaces • Carwashes • Theaters • Hotels • Hospitals • Casinos Identigraph uses high quality materials to fabricate backlit awnings. Not only do we use high quality fabrics, but we also take care to engineer lighting mounts and framing in order to diminish hot and cold spots in the overall product. Hot and cold spots happen when light is not evenly distributing across the face of the awning. We also take care to make sure the walkways beneath the awnings are adequately lit. Backlit awnings are easy to maintain, and only need to be sprayed off to remove dirt and grime. By keeping backlit awnings clean you can avoid burnt spots that would otherwise occur. This also helps keep a clean and neat appearance for your business.
