GPS Awning Designs
The most popular awning style currently being used in California is the Blade Awning which is a pitched “slanted” awning with open sides “ends”. These awnings are sometimes called Blade Canopies, Blade Sunshades and Blade Patio Covers.
GPS also manufactures Blade Awnings in the form of Metal Louvers. Blade Awnings can be covered in fabric, canvas, architectural sheet metal, perforated metal or even glass.
Essentially a Blade Awning is attached above a window or an opening and slopes away from the building. It is installed at various angles depending upon the desired look and the amount of sunlight you want blocked.
Blade Awnings can either have horizontal return legs or “spears” at predetermined angles and can sport decorative tips available in many different configurations. Another popular option you can add to a Blade Awning is a valance which is available in a number of custom patterns.
METAL AWNINGS and METAL CANOPIES
GPS Awnings is an innovator and a specialist in fabricating and installing Metal Awnings on businesses and homes.
A Metal Awning and a Metal Canopy is a shade, weather, or decorative fixture with frames manufactured using steel or aluminum frames and covered with metal skins, grids, sheets, or architectural sheet metals.
PITCHED AWNINGS and CONCAVE PITCHED AWNINGS
A great solution for sun and rain protection is either a Pitched Awning or Concave Pitched Awning. These awnings are great in the commercial setting for storefront awnings, door hoods and window awnings.
They can be designed and manufactured in almost any size and they can be made with a solid valance which is great for signs, graphics and street numbers. Alternately, they can be made into a wedge shape and used without a valance.
The commercial Pitched Awning can be either a fabric canvas awning or have a metal covering. Residential Pitched Awnings are most often covered in fabric and make excellent window awnings as well as door awnings. We can even flatten the angle and make a Pitched Awning into a Patio Awning or Patio Canopy.
DOME AWNINGS and DOME CANOPIES
A Dome Awning, also referred to as Dome Canopy, is among the most elegant awnings featured on buildings and houses. A “true” Dome Awning has a projection that is half the size of the width and height of the awning with a symmetrical radius.
We've manufactured Domes as tall as 16' and as small as 3' Dome Awnings can have either solid valances or loose valances.
Styles Include: Quarter Barrel Dome End Quarter Barrel
