Metal extension canopies
What is an extension canopy?
A skylight extension is an architectural glass and metal structure designed to expand the living space of an existing home or building. This extension is usually added to the main structure and can serve different purposes, such as creating a new room, additional living space, a conservatory or a transition area between the interior and exterior.
The glass roof is mainly made of glass panels, which allows excellent penetration of natural light. It thus creates a bright and pleasant space inside the house. A glass extension is often designed to create a seamless transition between indoors and outdoors. It allows you to enjoy the view of the garden or the surrounding landscape while remaining sheltered from bad weather.
Extension canopies can be used for a variety of purposes, such as extending the dining room, creating a summer lounge, providing a winter garden for plants, or even as lounge. Extension skylights are often designed with a sleek, modern aesthetic, making them an interesting design element for a home. They can add a contemporary touch to existing architecture.
What are the characteristics of an extension glass roof?
The features of an extension canopy may vary depending on the specific design and project needs.
Extension skylights typically have a metal frame, such as steel, that supports the glass panels. The choice of metal will depend on the necessary strength and the desired aesthetic style.
The walls of an extension skylight are mainly made of glass panels, which allows excellent penetration of natural light. The types of glass used may vary depending on the desired thermal performance.
The roof of the canopy is also usually made of glass or polycarbonate to maximize light. It can have a flat, sloped or dome shape, depending on the intended design.
Extension canopies offer great flexibility in terms of customization. You can choose the size, shape, colors and finishes so that it fits harmoniously into your home. Extension skylights may have sliding doors, French doors or other types of doors to facilitate access from inside the house or from outside.
