Further information

Why purchase a glass door canopy?

Particularly in the case of an older front door, window, or French balcony door, these face wear and tear from the elements. Front door locks, for example, can freeze over in winter if they get wet and are not well-protected, just as back doors can show the impact of strong hailstorms. Overexposure to UV-radiation can then also fade and deform stainless colour finishes if they are not shaded well enough from the sun.

Glass canopies are an ideal solution to protect balconies, back, side, and front entrances alike.

Acting like a roof or porch and available in a variety of shapes and sizes, they feature a curve, awning shape or slight slant and purpose-designed gutters to effectively drain water and keep entrances dry.

Despite its light weight, the surface of a glass door canopy is also particularly UV-resistant, durable, and can withstand heavy loads.

Alongside its impressive functional features, a glass door canopy is more than just a shelter system or space-saving porch alternative though. The canopy is a sleek design element in and of itself, which adds a contemporary feel to entrances. Various colours can then be selected for its stainless metal supports and brackets, and a range of different surface finishes are also available, which means the canopy can be tailored to beautifully blend or contrast with different doors and façades.

Different door canopy glazing options

To ideally suit different customer design preferences and functional requirements, our glass door or porch canopies can come with a range of different robust surfaces. From transparent or satin acrylic glazing to polycarbonate and composite panel, the different features and advantages of each are set out below.

Acrylic glass

At windows24.com several of our door canopy models, such as the Copenhagen or Monaco designs, feature an acrylic glass surface. Made from polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), this surface actually consists of a modern polymer that is much more lightweight and impact-resistant than conventional outdoor glass. Simple to self-install yet strong and able to withstand loads of up to 120 kg, this material is a real all-rounder that acts as an effective porch to withstand and protect a front door, window, or patio from heavy snowfall, for example.

Thanks to the material's flexibility and impact-resistance, strong wind also poses no problem for acrylic canopies while its UV resistance helps to protect front door colour finishes from fading. A glass canopy made from acrylic glass is also easy to clean given its sleek wipeable texture.

A further benefit of an acrylic front door canopy then relates to privacy and style. All our acrylic door canopies can be purchased with a clear, transparent finish, for example, which makes for a welcoming entrance. For some models however, customers can opt for a frosted satin surface finish. Not only does this bring a different style and go particularly well with doors featuring frosted glazed inserts, but it also provides a higher degree of privacy.

Cellular or solid polycarbonate

Another option for the surface of our high-quality door canopies is cellular or solid polycarbonate. This is another modern glass-like polymer used in our door canopy models, such as the Oslo, Amsterdam, and Rome designs as well as in the Colorado Springs and Chicago side porch canopy panels. Even stronger than acrylic glass, the polymer is manufactured using an extrusion technology system, which makes it particularly impact-resistant and ideal for protecting the front door or building façade.

In terms of the difference between cellular or solid polycarbonate, this mainly comes down to cost and that solid polycarbonate provides the highest amount of UV resistance. Both cellular and solid polycarbonate still allow for light entranceways, however. They also make for quick outdoor installation and can easily be formed into a range of canopy shapes, from square, to curved, or awning.

Composite panel

The final material option for the door canopy's surface is composite panel. Made from a purpose-designed fusion of different materials, including polycarbonate and acrylic sheets, the panel is used in popular models, such as for our Madrid door canopy.

Excellently strong yet lightweight and UV-resistant, the material can withstand heavy load capacities, making it ideal for snow, bright sunlight, and quick self-installation alike.

In terms of design, composite panel then boasts a particularly unique feature. Canopies made from it, such as the Cape Town model, feature a white underside but are anthracite on the upper side.

This adds character to the entrance and protects door finishes from fading while also ensuring low maintenance thanks to the smooth glass-like texture.

Glass door canopy supports and brackets

The system supporting glass door canopies and firmly fixing them to walls differs depending on the chosen model. Where some designs, such as the Lisbon outdoor canopy feature a metal frame, others such as the Oslo porch canopy are hung via rods – just read on to discover more.

Hung canopies

Two popular glass canopies, Oslo and Bakersfield, consist of a system where the panel is hung from the wall via two rods. Compared to a porch, this is an excellent space-saving solution and adds a lighter touch to the entrance with both a curved and flat design available. Despite their sleek and lightweight nature, the canopies still provide excellent shelter though thanks to robust metallic fittings, a high load capacity, and back wall seal.

Different aluminium door canopy supports

Many of our glass canopies are constructed and fixed to walls by a different system, however, that features aluminium supports or a frame and brackets.

These metal parts are not only particularly durable and sturdy but can also add to bespoke design. Some supports have been moulded into ornate shapes, for example, whereas others feature a slight curve, or rather encase the glass canopy.

For many of our canopies customers can then also choose whether the metal should be finished in a bright white, deep anthracite or even in a silver tone. Regardless of the choice, the selected colour is applied via a professional powder-coating process, which ensures a durable, vibrant, and high-quality surface.

Stainless-steel and glass options

Some of our canopies like the premium Prague design feature aluminium, stainless-steel and glass. This impressive fusion of quality materials offers particularly high strength and steel robustness. The steel is used to anchor the canopy securely to the wall, for instance, while also contributing to a minimalistic, steel silver aesthetic. Aluminium, on the other hand, is anodised and forms a sleek front drainage gutter to ensure durable watertightness for the porch area.

Glass side canopies

At windows24.com a glass roof canopy can be combined with further complementary products, such as a glass side canopy or panel.

This extra product can be added to one of both sides of the main canopy located above the door.

The sides of this porch system provide enhanced shelter from the elements and are made from polycarbonate or acrylic glass.

For some models, as with a window or some of our porch canopies, the glazing surface can also be customised to feature a frosted satin look for enhanced privacy.
