An awning is a secondary covering attached to the exterior wall of a building, typically composed of canvas woven of acrylic, cotton, or polyester yarn, or vinyl laminated to polyester fabric, which is stretched tightly over a light structure of aluminum, iron, steel, or wood. The primary purpose of an awning is to provide protection from the sun, reducing glare and heat on windows and doorways, and to shield pedestrians from rain and other elements. Awnings are also used for decorative purposes and can significantly enhance the architectural aesthetics of a building. They come in various shapes, sizes, and designs, ranging from simple, stationary add-ons to complex, retractable structures that can be adjusted according to weather conditions. In commercial settings, awnings can also serve as signage or advertising space, often featuring the name, logo, or promotional details of a business.
