Commercial awnings are gaining well-deserved recognition for their utility on a number of fronts – such as branding, safety, and protection from the elements. Canvas awnings are popular traditional commercial building awnings, but metal building awnings are ideal for places with higher volumes of traffic, like warehouses or wholesale retail. As an industry leader, Weathercraft can help you beef up your bottom line and ensure safety and security for personnel, customers, and property with expertly manufactured and installed metal awnings.

There is no question that flat metal awnings can provide shelter from the elements for both your staff and clients. Business is better when your team and your customers are comfortable. Commercial steel awnings and entry covers serve to keep them safe during inclement weather. Architectural metal awnings lower the risk of individuals slipping and falling as the result of rain, snow, and slush building up and creating slippery surfaces. This will help you avoid costly litigation and insurance liability, keeping both your people and bottom line safe.
Uncompromising Power and Performance
Metal is, of course, more durable than fabric, meaning metal awnings for commercial buildings can better hold up against whatever weather mother nature may throw at them. They keep out more sun, blocking out more light and heat, and provide effective cover from harsh weather such as rain or snow. Fabric awnings, especially those that are not retractable, are really only intended to protect from sunlight and light rain. They are designed to be retracted or put away as winter weather approaches.
An Impressive Return on Investment
When compared to fabric awnings, commercial metal awnings can be a more costly investment upfront. However, because they require little to no maintenance and usually never need to be replaced, the longer term cost is actually lower. Beyond the initial cost of installation, because metal awnings are more effective than fabric awnings in terms of shading and sheltering, you will see more significant savings on your energy bills. Over time, this can really add up and make a difference to your profitability.
And of course, better protection affords better prevention against lawsuits, workers’ compensation claims, and damage to equipment and goods that can be costly to replace.
