From grand and ornate with intricate metalwork, to sleek, modern and frameless – the style of glass canopy you choose for your building can be just as important to the way your image and brand are perceived as the signage you have above the door.
An entrance with a glass canopy over it can be so much more welcoming to visitors – glass canopies provide the comfort of shelter from wind and rain, while at the same time allowing light to flow into your building.
