3 Types of Metal Awnings for Your Wisconsin Property
Commercial property owners in Wisconsin have a wide variety of options when it comes to installing shade structures. In addition to the premium powder coatings, body types, and shade fabrics available, Datum offers three exciting designs for you to customize and enjoy. Our Plexus, Aegis, and Shade Trellis models all come with the customization options, excellent craftsmanship, and industry-leading warranties that you have come to expect from Datum. This week, we will explore Datum’s three metal awning designs to help you decide which is the best fit for your Wisconsin property.
Plexus: A Cantilevered Awning
The Plexus cantilevered metal awning is an excellent choice for any Wisconsin property. Its cantilevered design allows for an easy installation without arm support, while its durable aluminum construction provides superior, long-lasting weather protection. Plexus canopies are welded and typically manufactured to cantilever between 4′-5’. There are multiple options for the main body component, including pans, louvers, grates, and shade fabrics. Because of its elegant design, Plexus canopies are popular for storefronts, apartments, and restaurants that rely on their property’s visual appeal.
Aegis: A Strong Profile
The Aegis’s bold profile features strong lines and a formidable frame. This flat canopy is supported by the patented adjustable Datum arm, a set of aluminum arm supports that suspend the metal awning from the side of your building. As with all of Datum’s products, Aegis canopies are fabricated from sturdy aluminum and arrive pre-assembled at your location for easy installation. Some clients choose to lighten the look of their Aegis with louvers or shade fabrics, while others opt for a solid metal body. Aegis canopies can make an avant-garde addition to any storefront or restaurant, but their strength and simple design also lend them to loading docks and drive-throughs.
Shade Trellis: A Beautiful Sunshade
Datum’s Shade Trellis is a stunning model that pairs aluminum and fabric to create a light, artful feature that can also provide protection from the elements. Shade Trellises feature high-quality shade fabrics that are integrated with a grate-shaped aluminum frame. While all of Datum’s products are highly customizable, the Shade Trellis is exceptionally so. Clients can design their units to include squares, circles, or a company logo as part of the body’s architectural structure. Because of their exceptionally pleasing appearance, Shade Trellis units are well-suited to standalone shade structures, outdoor dining spaces, and pavilions.
