Commercial Architectural Canopies

Local Mapes Architectural Canopy Distributor

For over 40 years, Design Canopy Company has been a premier supplier of pre-engineered aluminum canopies in the mid-Atlantic region.

World Class Design

Every architecture project we manage involved communication, care, and attention, from your initial vision to the aesthetic details. Whether a new or existing building, our canopies are designed to complement the appearance of any structure.

As a result, our products are unmatched in the market.


The best architectural finish available in the market, a 2-coat Kynar finish from Mapes comes with a standard 10-year finish warranty. We can also provide custom color 2-coat kynar finishes. We offer a standard finish that is available in clear anodized, white bakes enamel and bronzed baked enamel with a 1 year warranty. You can find our color chart here.

Our products are completed in a specialized facility after being factory-prepped in a hot chemical bath. Before painting, materials are heated and bathed to remove extrusion oils and production residue, which can harm finish quality if not treated properly.

World-class Design

To deliver a unified system product performance, our entire canopy system is particularly created and manufactured so that each parts works together to create precision fitting. The connecting points are designed with several safety features above and beyond the minimum requirements.

When required, our system can handle any load circumstances across the continent.
We employ an independent third-party engineer that is accredited in all 50 states to ensure a fair and expertly designed product.

Our own custom-designed extrusions and pre-engineered proprietary systems all work together to create a seamless, integrated solution. Others frequently buy off-the-shelf stock materials and put them together with perhaps mismatched components while taking into account a fully engineered canopy system.
