Besides protecting your building from direct sunlight and bad weather, an awning can improve the aesthetic appeal of a building and can also convey information such as a shop name or other details.
The History Of Awnings
Awnings first were used during ancient Egyptian times and were described as “woven mats.” One of the most significant overhangs from the ancient world was what was known as a velarium. It was a series of retractable shades which were used over the seating areas in the Roman Colosseum. In the early 19th century, they were made from timber or cast iron posts and set along sidewalks to protect people walking by from sunlight or weather. They eventually started to be used as decorative features on homes and businesses alike as years passed. Today, they are used on all types of locations for advertising a company’s logo and phone number, to protecting people on their patio from sunlight.
An awning is great for use around your home to protect your home from harsh weather, and to provide shade during the hottest times of day. Residential awnings are typically fabric but can at times be made from metal. These typically range from window and door coverings to patio coverings. Having a custom awning installed on your home can help you keep your home cool during the summer providing valuable protection from the sun.
Awnings have a long history of being used for commercial purposes. Whether for recreation or to protect customers from the sun before entering your storefront. Our team at Awnings Above specializes primarily in commercial awnings for use on storefronts, entrances, balconies, and windows.
