Keep the area around your metal buildings safer, your systems and structures healthy — and your people protected against snow, rain and other elements — with Metallic Products’ lighted canopies. An elevated version of our popular personnel door canopies, these tools of the trade do their share of the heavy lifting with little to no ongoing maintenance required.

Wet-rated LEDs provide 50,000+ hours of light while keeping energy usage to a minimum. Meanwhile, they support your green building efforts with ENERGY STAR-certified luminaires that are free of mercury and lead.

As with our unlighted canopies, a well-placed lighted canopy can reduce the amount of solar radiation entering your building through door and window glass, keeping indoor temperatures cooler and placing less stress on HVAC systems. When located above outdoor cooling units, they also protect systems against wear and tear, extending their overall lifespan.

With a wide range of colors and finishes to suit your unique structure — and both single- and double-door options available — there's a lighted canopy for every steel building. (Already have an unlighted Metallic Products door canopy? Upgrade it with a light kit!)

Interested in additional options? We offer unlighted personnel door canopies and gabled ice shield canopies, too.
