About Mapes

Our History

Mapes Industries is a family owned business that has manufactured specialty architectural products since 1952. The company was founded by J.S. Mapes as a manufacturer of storefront canopies and laminated veneer panels for building entrances and remodeling. The Mapes product line has evolved over the last 60 years to meet the changing needs of both developers and architects. Mapes Canopies, LLC has become the leading manufacturer of high load aluminum canopies, aluminum walkway covers and sun control louvers.

Our economical roll formed Lumishade and all extruded Super Lumideck have set the standard for metal canopies and metal awnings. The pre-engineered canopies have been designed to withstand every condition across the country including high snow drift loading and hurricane force winds. The all aluminum construction means a lifetime of service without rusting or corroding. Mapes canopies have evolved to include a wide variety of profiles, shapes, curves and an almost unlimited color palette in any architectural finish.

Currently under a 4th generation of ownership, Mapes is committed to providing the same high quality products and service that has become the foundation of our past success. Our goal is to build and enhance this legacy in the years to come.
