SHADE AND STRUCTURE BASICS
TYPES OF STANDARD AWNING DESIGNS
CONCAVE p
Most typically used over a
window or door, the concave
design is characterized by the
inward curvature of the front
panel. The side panels can
be covered with fabric for a
completely shaded enclosure,
or left open, leaving the
front panel supported by
decorative poles.
DOME p
A dome-shaped awning is
typically found over small
entryways and windows and
can be used in archways.
The quarter-sphere shape
provides similar protection
from the sun and rain from
all angles.
ELONGATED DOME p
Similar to the dome-shaped
frame, this style works best
for long windows or entryways
that require a dome awning.
The elongated dome can be
used on a flat surface or can
curve to cover a corner entry
or windows.
LATERAL ARM/
RETRACTABLE p
Most typically used over patios
and decks, the retractable
awning can be extended and
retracted to provide shelter when
necessary and allow sunlight
when desired. It includes a
manual cranking system or two
variations of electric control
systems; one functions at the
push of a switch or button and
the other can be controlled by
sun, wind and rain sensors.
QUARTER ROUND/
CONVEX p
The quarter round frame
is similar to the traditional
awning with flat side panels,
but is characterized by a
curved front panel, constructed
from a series of parallel bows
in the shape of a convex curve.
It produces a radius shape with
flat ends. It is best used over a
small entryway or window.
ROUNDED
ENTRANCE CANOPY p
A canopy, unlike an awning,
is supported by not less than
one stanchion at the outer
end, as well as the building
to which it is attached. Like
an awning, it is made of
fabric and can provide the
same benefits and aesthetics
of an awning.
TRADITIONAL p
The traditional frame is
comprised of a downslanting
front panel with or
without two side panels or
ends. It can be used over
smaller areas like windows
and entryways, but can also
provide protection over large
areas like porches, patios
and decks.
The Professional Awning
Manufacturers Association,
a division of the Advanced
Textiles Associations, has
adopted standard names for
awning and canopy styles,
which are shown this page
with the representative
designs. Fabric awnings
and canopies create
attractive, comfortable
outdoor areas for people
to gather, protected from
the sun. In addition, fabric
structures provide cover
during inclement weather,
and are more economical
to build and maintain than
comparable masonry and
wood structures.
