Louvre awnings fall into the category of an awning structure. The framework is attached to the building, with the ‘structure’ resting on mounted poles. Louvre awnings provide shade and protection from the elements, especially windows, doors, or outdoor spaces like patios and decks. The adjustable aluminium louvres can be opened or closed to control the amount of sunlight and airflow entering the covered area. An increasing number of residential and commercial property owners are opting for louvre awnings to extend outdoor entertainment areas.
