CAD Engineering Resources for Architects & Engineers
We developed our CAD engineering resources section to accomplish one goal: make it easier to design and create a functional aluminum canopy. We've noticed there are very few architectural resources out there to help architects and designers when they are designing or creating an aluminum canopy. Our informative engineering resources, including metal canopy and metal awning details, help accomplish this goal.
Design and Architectural Resources
In this section, you will find a number of canopy architectural resources that will streamline the design process, including:
- CAD/Specifications: This section offers a list of aluminum walkway cover specifications (downloadable) that can be used for any job you are working on. There are multiple specifications that reflect the different canopy designs that we provide. Included are metal canopy and metal awning details to help you blend design intent with engineering requirements. We have made it easy for you to download our CAD drawings and to access our metal awning details instantly.
- Material Sizes: This section will help you know what shapes and sizes are available to use for aluminum walkway covers. You will also find the strength values and material weight for each individual shape.
- Relevant Codes & Standards: This section informs of the relevant codes and standards that relate to aluminum walkway covers and how to interpret them (ex: deflection limitations and allowable live loads for aluminum walkway covers). This section will make the requirements for aluminum walkway covers clear and eliminate assumptions pertaining to the relevant codes.
