Read on to discover the ways in which you can customize your Plexus Metal Canopy while getting the high degree of quality and performance you expect from Datum.

1. Color

Each Plexus Metal Canopy is coated with a polyester powder that meets the performance requirements of the AAMA 2604 specification. Not only does this add durability to the finish of your canopy, it also gives you the opportunity to pick from a wide selection of colors to customize your final product. Premium coatings are also available. If you choose to customize your Plexus with a fabric body, there are even more colors to choose from. Whether you are looking for a shade structure that is bold or neutral, Datum has a wide range of material colors to help you put your business’s best foot forward.

2. Body Type

The aluminum body of the Plexus Metal Canopy can be fabricated in many different fashions, including louvers, grates, and full-coverage designs. Fabric is an option for certain parts of the body to provide shade and a pop of color. Regardless of the custom options chosen, the Plexus is made of high-quality aluminum and is supported by aluminum bar outriggers. As with all Datum shade structures, the custom Plexus Metal Canopy is fabricated according to your project’s specifications. We can create a shade structure that is tailored to your measurements.

3. Shade & Weather Protection

Because of the different body types, the Plexus Metal Canopy can be customized to provide any level of shade from partial to full. Louvers and grates give partial shade while solid designs provide full sun and weather protection. The cantilevered design of all Plexus Canopies allows rain to flow off easily.
