Canopies can be a design feature to mark entrances, shape circulation, define a space, highlight fenestration, contribute to a building’s aesthetic, etc.
Functionally, canopies are important in sheltering occupants from the elements as they enter/exit a building, in keeping exterior routes free of snow or shaded, creating comfortable spaces for outdoor activities or for waiting, and more.
Glazed canopies from Wisconsin Solar Design help you achieve all of the above, while also admitting controlled amounts of natural daylight and – if desired – permitting views of the sky or views to/from other parts of your structure. And, for architects and engineers, WSD’s glazed canopies can be part of your design repertoire when you wish to create visually lighter and more delicate structures.
Wisconsin Solar Design offers several different types of glazed canopy systems. Our glass canopies come in either a glazing bar + bar cap system or as a fully-engineered point-supported-glass system with spider fittings. Our translucent structured polycarbonate systems come in either a glazing bar + bar cap system or a standing seam panel and batten system. Alternatively, you can set one of our skylight systems into a non-glazed canopy.
No matter what look you’re after or what your budget is - we’ve got you covered.
