 Best Canopies and awnings for high winds, rain and sun

Canopies and awnings play an important role in the construction industry depending on their usage. Their most important task is to protect the facade of the building, door, window, cars and other facilities from high winds, rain and sun rays.

Canopies and awnings

The material used for canopies and awnings can be waterproof, anti-UV, or anti-wind. They come in freestanding structure models or attached to the buildings – in retractable or fixed design. In this article, we are going to discuss the most common types of these awnings and shades.

What is the difference between a canopy and an awning?

Canopies and awnings

Canopies and awnings are somewhat different from each other. Awnings are usually known as sunshades. Their role is to prevent sunlight and rain. They are usually attached over a window or door of a building or used as a garden roof. Canvas or tarp awnings are more common in these shades and they are usually manual structures.

Canopies on the other hand function as freestanding structures. They may cover more space than awnings and are usually made retractable. A canopy can be the roof of a carport, restaurant, patio, etc.

 

Canopies and awnings by model

Here we introduce the most important types of canopy roofs by models.

 

Fixed sunshades and canopies

These shades are also called permanent or stationary awnings. Fixed awnings or shades are attached to the wall of the building or above the frame of windows or doors. While fixed canopies are used for places that are more exposed to the sun i.e. fixed carports; retractable awnings are mostly used for store door shades, patios and your building entry door.

 

 

Retractable canopies and awnings

Retractable canopies can be used both in freestanding and fixed models. Unlike pergolas and stationary canopies, a retractable awning is flexible. It can retract or extend according to the weather changes and your mood. They also can function with a remote control to bring more comfort and joy. These are designed in 2 types:  electric retractable awning and manual retractable awning.

When it comes to an outdoor canopy and awning, strength and durability of the material is the key. Before buying the right material for your sunshade and canopy; let us introduce the best types of materials for canopies and awnings.

 

 

 

Tarp canopy (tarpaulin)

Tarp canopy (tarpaulin)

 

Tarp or tarpaulin is a canvas made from a durable fabric best known for its waterproof features. Beside canvas they are made with polyethylene, vinyl or polyester. They are protective coatings against rain and UV rays. That is why tarp awnings and canopies are one of the best coverings for carports, patio shades and other outdoor roof shelters. The tarpaulin has a heavier weight than other canvas materials and it might be more expensive as well. But it is worth it because of its durability and good protection against high winds, rain and UV rays.

Metal (Galvanized Canopies)

 

When it comes to strong storms and coastal winds, canopies and awnings must be installed professionally. otherwise it will collapse and may cost a lot to be restored or renewed. Metal canopies are no exception. Although it can be strong in wind; but for those who live in rainy or sunny places might not be a good idea. In rainy days it makes a lot of noise and in hot days it will transfer the heat to its surrounding. Water speeds up the rusting process in metal roofs, canopies and awnings; but it is a fire resistant material and can be a good roof cover for windy areas – if installed properly.
