Metal Awnings Make Stadiums Energy Efficient and Attractive
Nothing beats a day at the stadium where thousands of spectators can gather to watch a favorite sports team or entertainer. However, the days of hulking, concrete structures that boasted little style and even less functionality are long gone. Today’s stadiums and arenas are more flexible, adaptable and environmentally friendly than ever before. One of the main reasons for this evolution is the use of metal awnings for stadiums.
Metal is quickly becoming the material of choice when it comes to building arenas around the world. Specifically, more architects, designers and builders are incorporating aluminum-based elements into their plans. Why? Because aluminum awnings for stadiums offer several distinct advantages when compared to other building materials.Metal awnings are simply more durable than many other materials. Frequently, they are powder coated to ensure a water-tight finish. This means that there won’t be any corrosion, even when the stadium is located in a region where adverse weather conditions are the norm. Metal awnings also have the advantage of keeping the sun out of spectators’ eyes and helping to control indoor temperatures. With the ability to design and craft metal awnings in an endless array of colors and styles, it’s possible to meet any desired aesthetics.
Metal awnings are lightweight when compared with other building materials.
This means that far less strain will be put on structural supports. What’s more, some metal awnings can be designed to be self-supporting, which means fewer upgrades to an existing structure or less stringent load-bearing requirements for new stadiums.
Metal also gets the job done far more cheaply than other materials. Frequently, a municipality, school or other organization is able to complete a new stadium at or under budget thanks to the use of metal awnings. They are also an environmentally safe choice as they can mean reduced energy bills. Aluminum is also readily recyclable, so when it’s time for an upgrade or makeover, arena owners can be certain of a greener demolition process.
