Adding a Metal Awning to Doorways, Walkways, and More in Wisconsin
While most of our content on the Datum blog focuses on awnings as a focal point for commercial properties, there are many ways for businesses to utilize these structures as decorative accents. A metal awning can provide much-needed sun protection and a bit of decorative flair to any storefront, apartment building, or office. Here are just a handful of ways that Wisconsin business owners can use a metal awning to add function and a decorative accent to their facility’s architecture.
Use a Metal Awning to Top Doorways and Windows
The spaces above doorways and windows can be excellent places to install a metal awning. Some clients choose to install smaller awnings or decorative louvers to accent their windows. A well-designed sunshade can provide the perfect amount of weather protection and visual appeal for any entryway. For multi-level buildings, a metal awning installed below a balcony or above a door or window can create an important visual distinction between floors. A building with a flat profile can be bland and boring, but well-placed metal awnings can add personality and visual interest.
Shield Walkways and Seating Areas With a Metal Awning
Weather in Wisconsin can be intense, and visitors and passersby often seek shelter from nearby buildings during the state’s harsh winter storms and sweltering summers. A durable metal awning can create a sheltered walkway for those passing by, and business owners may invest in a canopy to protect their facility’s courtyards or outdoor seating areas. Not only do these sheltered spaces provide respite for passersby, but they can also attract business and create more usable space for facilities that utilize them.
Add Shelter to Large Outdoor Areas
Of course, some commercial property owners choose to install aluminum architectural structures on a larger scale. Shopping centers, corporate campuses, and universities are all excellent candidates for a massive metal awning. These larger structures can contribute significantly to a campus’s architecture and aesthetic. While some facilities choose large metal awnings with their own unique architectural style, some large awnings are explicitly designed to support and complement a property’s existing architecture.
