What is an awning defined as?

An awning is a secondary covering usually attached to the exterior wall of a building. It is typically composed of canvas woven of acrylic, cotton or polyester yarn with more recent technology producing even more variations in fabrics used. There is also vinyl laminated to polyester fabric that is stretched tightly over a light structure of aluminium, iron or steel, possibly wood or transparent material. The configuration of this structure is something of a truss, space frame or planar frame. Awnings are also often constructed of aluminium understructure with aluminium or other materials sheeting. These aluminium awnings are often used when a fabric awning is not a practical application where snow load as well as wind loads may be a factor.

The location of an awning on a building can be above a window, a door, or above the area along a walkway. With the addition of columns an awning will become a canopy, which is able to extend a lot further from a building, as in the case of an entrance to a hotel or office. Restaurants often use canopies or awnings large enough to cover substantial outdoor area for outdoor dining, drinking, parties, or receptions. In commercial buildings, an awning is often painted with information as to the name, business, and address, thus acting as a sign or billboard as well as providing shade, breaking strong winds, and protecting from rain or snow. In areas with wintry weather, most retractable awnings do not have to be taken down at the end of the summer – they remain retracted against the building all winter long and are designed and built for those conditions.
