What good is a patio or deck if it is too hot to use.
You can have a comfortable patio or deck that you can actually use when it is covered by a frame canopy.
This will also protect yourself from the sun's harmful UV rays.
Frame canopies are practical for windy areas.
And unlike a retractable awning, you can use a frame canopy when it rains.
Frame canopy fabric covers are made using Sunbrella shade fabric.
Visit our Photo Album for more examples of frame canopies.
Frame patio canopies are attached to the house and are held up at the front by support posts.
This is a typical frame canopy design with the fabric cover removed. There was room to attached this canopy to the house below the gutter. They can also be mounted to the wall. The desired pitch of a frame canopy is 3" per foot. However, as little as 1" per foot is possible. The front of the canopy frame is usually about 80 inches above floor level.
The fabric cover is laced to the frame on three sides and should be removed for the winter months.
The frame is not designed to support a heavy snow load with the fabric cover installed. Removing the fabric cover for the winter months will also help to extend the life of the fabric. This frame is made using SCH 40 galvanized pipe.
All frame canopies are custom made for each job. I am sorry but a frame canopy cannot be shipped for a customer to install. If you do not live in the Rockford, Illinois area please check your Yellow Pages under "AWNINGS & CANOPIES" for an awning dealer in your area.
