We carry a line of clear polycarbonate canopies for doors and walkways. This style blends nicely with modern and old houses alike, provides good protection from the elements while being hardly noticeable.

Canopies are offered in a variety of finishes with aluminum or polypropylene brackets. Cover sheets made of monolithic polycarbonate withstand the UV, will not yellow or wave. Installation require little overhead, so can be mounted in tight areas above doors.

Awning come in two basic styles – front curve and side curve – barrel style. See tabs for sizes and options available.

Installation is straight forward – either by us or as a DIY kit, see install tab.

|Install|

Awnings are fairly straightforward for self install. Kit comes in a flat cardboard box with all parts, fasteners and installation instruction. Most sizes are easy to ship, save for the single panel awning wider than 60″. These sizes can be shipped but require additional crating so additional costs may render it prohibitive. For wide sizes we suggest to use the modular awnings.

Please note:

  • For tight overhead use low shoe, available in aluminum only.
  • If awning install low above the a storm door check if awning will clear door.
  • Wall fasteners supplied are for brick / block installation. For other wall material you will need to add your own appropriate fasteners.
  • Stucco or siding wall may present an issue. We recommend installing a 2x plate on the wall and mount the awning brackets on it.
  • We have no snow load values. This product has been sold in Europe for many years and was introduced in North America some decade ago. We have hade no snow load issues and are not aware of any with other distributors.
