CANOPY - SYSTEMS
Hunter Douglas Canopy Systems blend design and functionality, bringing a distinct look to a building's exterior while providing shade and comfort to the people inside. As a timeless architectural element projecting canopy systems connect the building volume with the space around it.
Why Canopy Systems?
Canopy systems have had their place in the architect's toolbox for centuries. Shading from high sun angles, reducing glare and incurring heat, they leave the outward view unhindered. As an architectural element they reach from the building volume into the outside world. Hunter Douglas offers a variety of canopy systems in different shapes and materials; all produced in high quality materials and designed for sleek appearance and easy installation.
- Panels in roll formed or extruded aluminum for highest weather resistance
- Matching support structures in aluminum make a complete and highly durable system
- Variable modules for best shading efficiency
- Continuous linear appearance of panels
- Virtually mainenance free
- Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Bronze (Cradle to Cradle Certified™ is a certification mark licensed by the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute).
Canopy systems are typically specified on larger building projects, for example offices or public utility buildings. For shading functionality canopy systems work best on South facing facades where the sun is at a high angle for most of the day.
Design & Inspiration
For many years architects have blended buildings with the outside world. Hunter Douglas produces a range of canopy systems that achieve a crisp and clean appearance and add to the elegant design detail of a buildings envelope.
Hunter Douglas offers roll formed or extruded aluminium panels for canopy systems. Roll formed panels are coil coated with a superior UV and scratch resistant Luxacote® paint system that is available in a wide range of colours. Luxacote(R) is a powerful 3-layered system consisting of an Anorcoat pretreatment, a PU-based colour coating and a transparent topcoat for added durability. The inside of the panels can be white for improved light reflection or be the same colour as the outside. Extruded panels can be anodised in a natural silver colour or a range of alternative colours and shades. Anodisation is an electrolytic process that turns the top layer of the aluminium itself into a strong protective surface that is resistant to all conditions. For an even wider choice of colours, extruded panels can be powder coated in the full range of RAL colours or specified to a designers specific colourway.

Health and wellbeing
The Hunter Douglas Architectural range of ceiling products contribute to sustainable buildings through aesthetic solutions that enhance comfort and save energy. Promoting the health and well being of their occupants is arguably the most important function of building. Our shading solutions promote the use of healthy daylight without the hindrances of glare and thermal discomfort. Our acoustic ceilings are a key element in the provision of acoustic comfort.
Environmentally sound materials are the key to a sustainable building. Our strategy is to pick materials that have good environmental properties to start with. Many of our products are made of aluminum produced in our own smelters. We have optimised our processes to use up to 99% of recycled content to produce the right alloy for our products. Our wood is FSC certified and we embrace the Cradle to Cradle principle in our product development.
Reducing the energy use of the total building stock is key to the prevention of global warming. Most modern office buildings use more energy for cooling than heating. Effective management of the solar energy that passes through the transparent part of the façade is a key strategy in the prevention of overheating in both old and new buildings. Our high performance shading solutions bring substantial energy savings, while at the same time promoting health and wellbeing.
