Each and every awning is custom built utilizing aluminum and TIG welding.

The method utilized for each panel is stapling them on.

The advantages of the stapling system far out weigh the conventional sewn or laced systems. This system Michigan-Chiro-finished-300x225_f_improf_300x225along with the modern advances in fabrics have dramatically increased the life of awnings and canopies.

Staple-in-tubing-small1-300x225_f_improf_300x225The image to the left shows how our staple in system works.  We use Aluminium staple in tubing then put the fabric in the channel of the tubing.  Then the Zip Strip is added afterwards into the channel to keep weather out of the channel.  Thus, preventing dry rot so the canvas will last longer on your awning.  Eventually dry rot will happen (10-15 years if not longer) but it helps to keep the weather out.
