Why choose a SteelMaster canopy?
For decades, businesses have chosen SteelMaster’s canopies for many reasons.
Saving money on labor costs
SteelMaster canopies are a great option for those looking for an economical solution. You can save money on labor costs because most of our models can be put together quickly by those with minimal construction experience.
Easy build canopy
The steel panels that will make up your canopy come stacked together like Pringles, pre-cut and pre-drilled. Most of our prefabricated DIY kits can be quickly constructed with just a small crew. We also provide the necessary hardware that helps to secure the panels together to form the canopy.
Our canopies are built to last for decades using industrial strength steel. The high-grade steel provides an incredibly strong structure that can survive some of the most severe weather events including tornadoes, snowstorms, and hurricanes.
Commercial Building Canopy Projects
The uses for SteelMaster canopies and awnings are endless, from bus stop covers in Oklahoma City to a breezeway at the US Navy’s Joint Expeditionary Base–Little Creek in Norfolk, Virginia. A metal building canopy can be a great investment for both its practicality and its looks.

Ranch 616, used a SteelMaster metal canopy to cover their outdoor seating area. Not only do the arches provide shade for restaurant patrons, but the creative design is supposed to resemble the barrel of a gun.
What’s the difference between a canopy and an awning?
Though the terms can be used interchangeably, a canopy is typically a standalone structure while an awning is attached to a building. The term “canopy building” can also be used to refer to a standalone canopy system.
Our standalone canopies can be used to protect your company’s fleet of vehicles or to shelter heavy equipment. Simple to design and install, a SteelMaster canopy is the most cost-effective of its type on the market.
