Awnings & Window Awnings
Awnings, whether for a shop or home, is a great product to help against the harsh elements of our ever changing weather patterns. Choosing the right Awning however is another issue in itself. Do you choose a Fabric Awning or do you choose a Metal Awning? The reason for this is because there are about as many types of Awnings to choose from as there are places to attach them to. Let us delve a little into the history of the humble Awning itself. You may find it quite interesting.
Awnings in a variety of forms have been around as long as mankind has tried to provide shelter from the sun and other weather elements. These date back in time when outside stall sellers had to protect their produce from the weather using woven shade cloth or similar materials.
Awnings for homes and shop fronts only came to prominence in first half of the 19th century. They were extremely simple in design and features by using simple hardware which mainly consisted of either timber or cast iron posts and linked together by a front cross bar to the building wall. The covering on top was made from canvas material. In those early days the proper idea for a Commercial Awning was not even born yet.
Awnings today come in steel, canvas and aluminium material and in almost endless colours and styles. It would be fair to say that current types of Awnings have become a fashion statement for the front of homes offices and shop fronts all around the world.
