To provide an architecturally cohesive appearance and performance, Metalwërks® Canopy Cladding is often formed from the same metal plate material as a building’s Metalwërks plate wall system.

Canopy Cladding can be created from flat, curved, or 3D panels. Also, formed metals, architectural grilles, lighting, speaker grilles and other elements are easily integrated.

Features and Benefits of Canopy Cladding

Johns Hopkins Hospital
  • Visually complement or contrast with Metalwërks plate wall systems
  • Flat, curved, or 3D panel geometries
  • Typically manufactured from solid aluminum plate, with stainless steel plate options
  • Panel corners and miters are welded and ground smooth for a watertight and seamless appearance
  • Solid plate is highly resistant to incidental
    dents and punctures
  • Non-Combustible: minimal smoke or fuel contribution
  • Avoids NFPA 285 complications by avoiding thermo-plastic cores
  • All panel systems are reinforced/stiffened to resist deflection limits
  • 100% recyclable and manufactured from materials with high post-consumer/ industrial content which can contribute to LEED credits
  • Virtually limitless palette of colors,
    finishes, and textures
  • Aluminum: high performance finishes are post applied for the highest quality of coverage and uniformity
  • Available in no-VOC powder coated finishes. Non-toxic and non-combustible.
  • Finish warranties up to 20 years (coated aluminum). Consult Metalwërks for limitations.

Uses of Canopy Cladding

90k St
  • Entrance canopies and vestibules with or without storefronts and entrance systems to protect egress
  • Projecting brow features for shading or architectural treatment at prominent locations
  • Incorporate lighting and A/V features
  • Cornice features to accent structural elements
  • Light features: light canopies and ceiling clouds

Metal Substrate and Finish Options

Aluminum Plate:

  • 3003-H14 aluminum alloy-temper
  • Thickness: 0.125” (3.18mm) standard.
    Consult with Metalwërks for options.
  • Finishes: Kynar® or architectural TGIC Polyester powder coating

Stainless Steel:

  • T304 or T316 for enhanced corrosion resistance
  • Thickness: 14 gauge (0.078”) (1.98mm) standard, 11 gauge (0.125”) (3.18mm), 12 gauge (0.109”) (2.78mm), 16 gauge (0.063”) (1.60mm) options
  • Finishes: #4, #6, #8, and non-directional satin in smooth or custom embossed patterns

Zinc:

  • Consult with Metalwërks for options.

Zinc is a natural metal which has specific properties that will limit its use. It must be adequately drained, ventilated and weeped when used in exterior applications to prevent excessive corrosion. Please consult Metalwërks for the appropriate uses for your project design.
