Its aluminum housing closes completely protecting the acrylic fabric against all severe weather conditions.

How to Measure

Installation Instructions





Determine the width of the awning. This requires a clear span, with no obstructions. The awning needs to be mounted on a continuous uninterrupted plane. Be sure that light fixtures or down spouts are not in the way.

Please be aware that although the awning rail requires a minimum of 8" (inches) to mount you should allow additional space above the awning (at least 1") for proper operation of the awning. The awning will require a total of 9" (inches) of space to function properly.

A minimum of 7'6" is required from the deck or patio to the top of the mounting space. The manufacturer suggests a mounting height of 9' is optimal. See following chart for more details. Note that the awning pitch can be adjusted up or down after the unit has been installed.

Make certain that there are no light fixtures or other obstructions in the way of installation.
