Awnings are primarily used to create a covering layer to exterior walls for protection from sunlight. Awnings are made of canvas woven from materials such as acrylic, cotton, and polyester. They can also be manufactured by laminating vinyl fabric on polyester fabric. These awnings are fixed by stretching tightly the awning sheet on metallic structures made from aluminum, steel, iron, or transparent materials. This framework structure is configured into the truss, planar, or space frame. These awnings are used above doors, windows, and sidewalks. The history of awning dates back to the ancient Egyptian & Syrian civilization. These awnings had extension arms hinged to join the facade. The arms of the awning operating system could be lowered or raised to protect against harsh sunlight. However, the early awning operating system had its own disadvantages such as fabric damage due to poor design, bad placement, and movement of awning fabric against the wall. Today, modernization in the form of motorized and smart awnings has eliminated some of these issues.The awning functionalities can be controlled with a push of a button or by using a smart app.
