Point Supported Glass Canopies

Many consider point-supported canopies to be the most attractive of all canopies. They offer a clean, streamlined presentation that results in a modern European appearance.  Unfortunately, they are usually the most expensive to produce because of the additional engineering that is often required.



Features and benefits of our point-supported canopies

  • A very attractive appearance
  • Glass allows you to “see the sky” and let more light pass through.
  • Aluminum framing helps the canopy stay cleaner resulting in less maintenance
  • Solid and hd stainless steel stand-offs
  • There are many glass colors available (clear, bronze, gray, green, blue and etc.)
  • Heat-strengthened, laminated glass is used for safety.
  • Our standard inner layer is .060 thick,  reducing breakage while adding safety
  • 4 weepage channels to help protect against leaks and allows condensation to drain
  • Frames are available in bronze or white paint or in anodized clear or dark bronze. Both finishes carry a 10-year warranty
  • Snap-on pressure caps hide unsightly screws and eliminate future dirt tracks
  • All canopies are designed and stamped by an engineer licensed in your state

Optional upgrades

  • Tempered, laminated glass for increased strength and safety
