    This specification applies to metal canopy systems including structural framing, canopy deck system, drainage system, fascia panels, accessories and trim, and canopy concrete foundations and accessories. It specifies the requirements for pre-engineered metal canopy systems, manufacturer's standard mutually dependent components, and assemblies that form a pre-engineered overhead canopy system to enhance safety and security. The pre-engineered overhead canopy system shall be capable of withstanding required design loads per the International Building Code as adopted or modified by local jurisdictions, thermally induced movement, and exposure to weather without failure. Primary structural frame design shall include fixed-base columns capable of transferring moments and forces into foundations, as well as roof purlins, main frame beams, and tube columns, plus secondary framing, canopy deck and fascia panels, and accessories. The requirements also cover submittals; delivery, storage, and handling; coordination; and warranty. Erection of structural steel, canopy deck panel installation, fascia installation, accessory installation, and cleaning and protection are also covered by this specification.
