French term or phrase: à projection
there are two syntagms:
"venise à projection" and "bannette à projection" (they are some type of awnings); my question is, can they be canvas window awnings and canvas door awnings? thanks a lot

Have you not looked at the Franciaflex site? They show both these awnings, which do indeed appear to be "canvas" (certainly a fabric of some sort). The "à projection" type, which winds out/in and moves out from the facade because of hinged struts at the lower edge, is opposed to the "verticale" type.

From memory, they are for doors and/or windows (the vertical type are certainly for windows ONLY), but they MAY be more versatile. The site classifies its products into interior, exterior, garden blinds, terrace blinds, door blinds, window blinds, etc. Check it out.

agree  Tamara Salvio: a 'venitien' is typically a blind, a 'bannette' an awning... because both are 'a projection' I would use awning for both, as you have done
