As the shade industry transitions to a mind-frame of sustainability, aluminum architectural canopies have gained popularity. We had the pleasure of installing an architectural canopy on Richard’s Foodporium in Dunedin, FL. Architectural awnings or canopies provide unmatched performance in providing sun and rain protection due to their fully sealed frame. These canopies come in a variety of styles and sizes, and can be outfitted with scuppers or gutters to divert rain water run-off to the most appropriate destination. Since the canopy is made from high quality aluminum, it is virtually maintenance free and 100% recyclable. Contractors are finding these canopies helpful in meeting LEED or “Green” building requirements as they provide shade to windows and entry ways, blocking heat before it enters the structure, and lowering overall energy costs.
Richard’s Foodporium in Dunedin will be having their grand opening Saturday, February 19th. So while you are enjoying natural and specialty foods, take a moment to enjoy the sun and rain protection offered by our architectural canopy.
