What are the main things to look for when you go canvassing for an awning canopy? Obviously as with all the products that you buy you have to look for one that is durable reasonably-priced and sizeable enough to accommodate the space you need under it.

Popular brands are popular for a reason - they are trusted and this is because they are durable and withstand all sorts of weather conditions. If you have no idea which brands are available in the market consult a friend who might own one or have put up a similar event in the past.

Metal Apart from the fabric canopies the use of steel and aluminium in the canvas or structure became popular during the 1950s.

However they ran out of the race because of the fact that they are hard to clean easy to dent and cannot be rolled back to its place when not required. They require special hinges or method to scroll up and down. It is a preferable choice for those who believe in the robust material over creative one. Fiber Glass Apart from quality fabrics and tensile aluminium frames the fiber glass is a lightweight alternative as it can be moulded into any shape. They are opaque and slightly translucent in nature which allows enough sunlight to walk in.
