Plexus Metal Canopy

Plexus unit can be fabricated from multiple options providing little or full shade depending on the design intent.

Plexis Metal Canopy

The cantilevered shade Plexus metal canopy is a high quality product that is sure to add design and ‘architectural strength’ to any building or facade. Each unit is fabricated with extreme attention to detail ensuring that aesthetic design is only outdone by its finish.

Plexus Architecture
Architecturally, the body of the Plexus unit can be fabricated from multiple options (as shown below) providing little or full shade depending on the design intent. Because each of the body options are fully painted aluminum components, corrosion will never be an issue.
Plexus Structure
Structurally, the Plexus unit is a high quality welded (not mechanically screwed) aluminum product that is typically designed to cantilever around 4′-0″. Each canopy utilizes high strength 6061-T6511 aluminum flat bar as outriggers which mount to the wall with 6061-T6 aluminum angle. The outriggers are connected to the mounting angle with three 3/8″x2″ 18-8 Stainless Steel hex bolts (supplied by Datum).
Plexus Fabrication
As you can tell, each Datum Metal Canopy is designed and fabricated with exacting standards for quality and craftsmanship. Thus, as a standard, each canopy is fully painted (after fabrication & assembly) with a polyester powder designed to meet the performance criteria of the AAMA 2604 coating specification. Higher qualifications & premium coatings are also available.
