We measure, manufacture and fit CUSTOM products and consider all of the following:

  • What is going to be covered?
  • Is the purpose to provide shade, protection from rain, or both?
  • What is going to used to support the structure?
  • Can that support handle the loads the awning or shade sail will generate?
  • If it’s waterproof, where is the water going to run off?
  • What happens in extreme weather?
  • What materials are best suited to the project?
  • Should the be seams heat welded or sewn? If sewn, Gore ® Tenara® thread is used which is guaranteed to hold up in the elements for the life of the fabric.
  • What are the loads put on the edges and corners? We make sure the hardware and webbing will support those loads.
