Canopy Systems

Structures Unlimited, Inc.’s imaginative canopy designs create a signature accent to any building. As a single-source partner, our total responsibility saves you time and site coordination on your next project.

We pair Kalwall® translucent sandwich panels with our lightweight aluminum framing to form a durable, rigid, long-lasting structure that delivers balanced, glare-free daylighting.

The structural integrity of our canopies, awnings and walkways is ideal in any climate, standing up to hurricane-force winds, high snow loads and the most demanding code requirements. Our pre-engineered solutions are ideal for linking buildings or providing protection from the elements at entries and drop-off areas.

Illuminating our translucent canopies after dark creates a marquis effect and provides visual wayfinding by highlighting a building entrance. During the day, our translucent panels create safer entry ways with evenly lit transition spaces. They eliminate shadows which often cause visual confusion and tripping, leading to falls.  Further, by minimizing light contrast ratios between inside and outside, our canopies are excellent for visual adaptation, and reduce disorientation, especially important for an aging population or the visually impaired.

Rain and snow are no match for our canopies. Our unique horizontal overlap detail eliminates leaks that plague other systems. Snow guards and gutter systems can be easily integrated. We also offer decorative elements such as radiuses, cables and masts, and struts. Unlike glass options, our low-maintenance translucent panels use natural rainfall to help keep clean and minimize unsightly dirt and debris.
