Awnings and Canopies are customized for the client. They are functional, economical, strong and stable. Most of our awnings and canopies consist of fabric stretched over and secured to a fixed galvanize steel frame secured by expansion bolts or laces. The frames are welded and with large awnings they are bolted together to make a single frame.
The Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA) has adopted standard names for awning and canopy styles and we outline the designs below:

VARIETY OF VALANCE STYLES
VALANCE / SCALLOP
There are different styles of valances for all awnings and canopies. Calderon #1 and Caribbean #2 are the most popular styles but you can choose any style you wish. The valances can be 8", 10" or 12" long as required. The awning valance comes with a ¼" binding. There are various biding colours from which to choose.
The Awning valance is easily removable on retractable awnings by removing the end cap and pulling the fabric out.
There is no additional cost for awning valance.
Measure the Width of the Window/Door from the inside left to inside right. Add 6” on either side of the awning: so add an additional 12” to the inside awning width to obtain your finished awning width.
Measure the drop of the window from the mounting point to the centerline of the window. The projection is the same as the drop. This represents the measurement for surface installation. For Recess Installation, measure the inside width from left to right and the drop from the mounting point to the centerline of the window. The projection is the same as the drop.
Regular projections are the same measurement as the drop; 36” or 48”; however you have to take into consideration the direction of the sun and rain and the style of the awning. For a dome, the drop and projection must be the same as the width.
For a Canopy measure the projection the length of the landing or open area that requires to be covered.
