A Dutch hood canopy is a practical and charming small fixed awning primarily used to protect doorways, walkways and windows from the elements. Fixed hoods and canopy awnings mount to the wall above an opening; they extend outwards and do not obstruct access. Dutch hoods add instant European styling and are extremely popular canopy awnings for shops and commercial properties.
You can choose a fixed hood awning in several iconic door and window canopy designs that offer different shapes and styles to create the exact look you are after.
Hoods and canopies are available in various finishes and a choice of two styles of trim. The 'trim' refers to the edging of your hood and can change the look of your finished product significantly. Both of our trim options allow you to customise your hooded awning, especially when coupled with different shapes, colours and materials; you can create a truly unique and personalised doorway canopy.
Dutch hoods and canopies can be manufactured using a variety of different materials, ensuring that you can achieve the look and level of durability that you desire. You can be confident the finish will be uniquely yours, complementing your home or business with awnings that stand the test of time.
Most of our Dutch canopy awnings are fixed, which means that they remain in place once they have been installed. Some hoods, however, can be made to retract when required.
Although fixed dome awnings add a touch of European charm to residential homes, we supply most of our Dutch hood awnings to commercial, retail and hospitality premises. This is because they can easily be personalised with business signage and provide some protection from the elements for window shoppers without encroaching too much on the footpath.
