About Us

Building the Strongest Awnings in South Florida since 1980

Our awnings are known for being able to withstand hurricanes and tropical storms where many others have failed. We craft our awnings using the best materials, design and engineering practices. We focus on efficient truss design as well as reinforcing weak points that generally fail during storms. We do not upcharge or cut corners when it comes critical anchors, connections, welds, and fasteners.

  • Engineered to last. Engineered beyond code.
  • We use thick-walled hot dipped galvanized steel (schedule 40) or schedule 40 aluminum, never thin-walled pipe like gator shield or conduit
  • We do not use zinc plated fasteners, always stainless steel and galvanized anchors
  • Base plates and connectors are always hot dipped galvanized
  • All frame corners are mitered and fully welded together, completely sealing the pipe interior from the corrosive effects of moisture and salt air
  • All fabricated metal frames are properly primed and painted in color of the customer's choice
  • Our anchor plates, tracks, and tabs are custom fabricated and treated to meet our proprietary design, which far exceeds the durability and strength of off-the-shelf available accessories
