Awning Options: Why Fabric Excels Over Metal

Retractable Awning over Backyard Seating Area

Awnings often serve a greater purpose than simply being a protective shield against the elements. An end user may want an awning that is an architectural statement, signage for advertising, or an intriguing way to capture people’s attention. Fabric awnings offer significant advantages including lower costs, customization, styling & aesthetic considerations, and flexibility.

Awning Fabrics Are Versatile & Diverse

Fabric awnings come in a wide variety of colors with more than 200 selections and also serve as a branding opportunity when you add you logo or message. The use of fabric provides endless customization options and unique styling opportunities that can also mimic the industrial feel of metal. An awning produced with fabric provides soft, high-end appeal while also offering fully functional shade and protection from the environment.

Fabric also has a benefit unmatched by other construction materials: in a pound for pound comparison, fabric can cover much larger areas with significantly less material per square foot while generating savings for the end user due to lower material costs and lighter weights for easier installation.

Custom Awnings Help Grow & Promote Your Organization

Certainly, metal has a space in the awning market and is the right product for many applications. However, incorporating fabric into the design as a replacement for the metal pans used today or in other creative ways creates an opportunity to add color, refresh brands, add curb appeal, and enhance the experience from underneath the structure. Some companies today are innovating in this way, finding the balance of function, style, and value for the end user.
