An awning is like an attachment on the exterior wall of a building. It can be made up of something woven, and other times Cotton which is laid over either an aluminium or a steel material that is transparent. It needs roughly just six inches of open lengthwise wall or roof space. They require very little maintenance or none at times. Awnings are used to cover outdoor areas for outdoor events like receptions, parties and other events – often used for this function by Restaurants and Hotels.
The history could be associated way back to the Ancient Egyptians and also the ancient Syrians. The ancient Chinese also added it to their palaces not only for aesthetics but also as a walking path around the palace. They were woven mats used to shade stalls at markets and also at home. They became more common in the 19th century and were already improved on at this time as they were made up of metallic materials or Timbers. In recent years, they’ve become readily available and of course very affordable as a result of industrialization.
