Metal and glass canopies
Metal and glass skylights are architectural structures that combine metal elements and glass panels to create bright, aesthetic and functional interior or exterior spaces.
These structures are loved for their sleek, modern aesthetic, as well as their ability to maximize natural light in a space while providing views to the outdoors.
Characteristics of metal and glass canopies
Metal and glass windows are appreciated for their contemporary and industrial aesthetic. Metal, often steel, is used to create a sturdy and elegant structure that frames the glass panels. The glass panels allow excellent penetration of natural light, which creates a bright and open space. This also reduces the need for artificial lighting during the day.
Metal and glass skylights are often used to divide interior spaces while maintaining visibility between them. For example, they can be used to create a separation between the kitchen and living room in a home or between workspaces in an office. These skylights are versatile and can be used in a variety of settings including homes, lofts, offices, restaurants, hotels, stores, etc.
Metal and glass canopies can be customized according to the needs of the project. You can choose the size, shape, metal type, glass type, and finishes to match your desired style and function. Although metal and glass skylights provide visual transparency, they can also be designed with translucent or frosted types of glass to provide a certain level of privacy while maintaining brightness.
Metal and glass are relatively easy materials to maintain. They are durable and weather resistant, although cleaning the glass panels may require regular attention to maintain their clarity. Depending on the design, metal and glass canopies can be equipped with thermal and acoustic insulation to improve interior comfort.
