An awning or overhang is a secondary covering attached to the exterior wall of a building. It is typically composed of canvas woven of acrylic, cotton or polyster yarn, or vynil laminated to polyester fabric that is stretched tightly over a light structure of aluminum, iron or steel possibly wood or transparent material (used to cover solar thermal panel in the summer, but that must allow as much light as possible in the winter).
The location of an awning on a building may be above a window, a door, or above the area along a sidewalk. With the addition of columns an awning becomes a canopy, which is able to extend futher from a building, as in the case of an entrance to a hotel. Restaurants often use awnings broad enough to cover substantial outdoor area for outdoor dinings, parties or reception. In commercial buildings, an awning is often painted with information as to the name, business, and address , thus acting as sign or billboard as well as providing shade.
