What is an awning?
An awning is an overhanging covering that is attached to the exterior of a building. Aside from being an attractive way to upgrade the look of your exterior space, awnings are used for two main purposes. First, awnings provide protection from the elements. Awnings create shade, break high winds, and shield against rain or snow. Canopy, or tent awnings can even be used to create a comfortable outdoor room environment! The other main use for awnings is advertising. An awning printed with your business name, logo, and contact information can be just as effective as any other business sign!

Our awnings are constructed out of a variety of durable, long-lasting materials. They are made using .10” aluminum extrusion, which makes them strong, yet lightweight and easy to install. The welds are ground down to prevent sharp edges that might tear fabric or vinyl. Any black carbon residue created by the weld is covered with chrome aluminum aerosol.
The awning fabric is attached to the frame with a staple-in system. The fabric is stretched over the frame, then stapled into a specific groove that has been formed during frame construction. The groove and staples are concealed by a PCV trim that creates a tight fit and a clean look. The staple method allows the awnings to be more wind resistant and have longer lifespans.
