  • Determine What You Want from Your Sunshade

The first step in designing a sunshade for your business is to determine its location and purpose. Metal awnings can serve a wide variety of functions, from eye-catching entryway covers to shelters for loading docks and drive-throughs. Think about where you will put your new sunshade, what you require from its performance, and whether you want it to blend in or stand out. Once you have an idea of what you need your sunshade to do for you and your business, you can start thinking about what you want it to look like.

  • Choose a Model of Datum Shade Structure

Datum is proud to offer three different products for all of your sunshade needs: the Aegis, the Plexus, and the Shade Trellis. All three models are made of prefabricated aluminum and can incorporate shade fabrics into their design, giving your sunshade a light and breezy feel without compromising on protection, durability, and quality. The Aegis, Plexus, and Shade Structure models can each add something different to the look of your building. Look at our website to learn more about the differences between the three products.

  • Choose Your Colors

By selecting a custom Datum canopy with shade fabric, you can combine different colors in your design and make your business stand out. Datum canopies come in ten standard powder coat colors, with powder coats also available in any RAL color. Paired with the colors possible for shade fabrics, the color combinations are almost unfathomable. You can use the colors present in your company’s logo, or you can match the fabric and powder coat to your building’s existing color scheme. Choosing to use shade fabric with your sunshade opens up even more possibilities for your custom Datum shade structure.
