How To Choose A Glass Canopy For Your Building

Where first impressions are important to your business, you should consider installing a glass canopy to your premises. A commercial glass canopy can provide a welcoming reception for visitors to your offices and provides you with space to promote your company name and stand out from the flat face surface of the high-street.

Unique Metal & Glass has an abundance of knowledge and skill when it comes to glass canopies, so if you’re looking for advice and guidance, look no further!

Before you choose which glass canopy you want for your business, there are a few considerations that you need to take into consideration, for instance:

Coverage.

How much coverage will the canopy provide?

During the winter when the conditions are poor, it’s inevitable you’ll want your structural glass canopy to offer sufficient shelter for when the weather is bad. A glass canopy needs to prevent the sun’s rays from penetrating through the glass and causing a hindrance too. Sunlight will bounce off the structural glass canopy and be reflected. This will ultimately maintain a luxury finish to your building.

Drainage.

Where will rainwater land from your canopy?

A glass canopy has a smooth design that’s especially enhancing for any business. The canopy will ultimately provide shelter for the entrance of your business, allowing customers to keep dry and sheltered. If a canopy is sloped, rainwater will run off to the side- ensuring that the entrance remains dry. A poorly installed entrance canopy can leave your business’ entrance damp and possibly lead to customers and employees getting wet, so make sure that you choose a canopy design that suits the environment that your business is located in.

Design.
