Awnings can appreciably reduce energy consumption by blocking solar radiation through windows and doors. They also can protect furnishings and carpets from fading due to the sun's UV rays.
Awnings and canopies are available in a diversity of shapes, sizes, materials, and colors.

Depending on the amount of light infiltration preferred, certain fabrics have a lighter-colored underneath side than the topside color, which gives a more different shading effect.
