Hurricane season has been very active this year and protecting your home’s windows and doors is more important than ever. Available as a non-impact product, clamshell awnings have long been a very popular product with Floridians to protect windows and interior furnishings from the sun’s harmful sun rays.
In more powerful storms, tree branches and other debris can be thrown by the wind and break otherwise protected windows and even doors. Obviously sliding glass doors, French doors or any door with considerable glass should be protected.
Clamshell aluminum awnings are a smart choice for those in need of extra shade or those looking to lower their cooling costs. They are light weight and easy to adjust. They also allow you to keep your windows open during light rain storms. When in the down position they offer full protection from the elements and are avail in a variety of colors or white and many different stripe colors.You may select basic white or any of the 16 custom colors including one solid color for the entire awning, or combine colors for adding single, double, or wider stripes. Just as we can custom manufacture your window or door awning for custom width or length, imagine the possibilities of matching color schemes, too.
Back to the importance of awning protection. Although some storms are so severe that no amount of preparation can secure a mobile home here in Florida, precautions can be taken to preserve and protect what you have. The aluminum products we manufacture help protect from storm winds, rain and hail, and are great for shielding the home from tropical storms and hurricanes.
Durable aluminum awnings are essential in areas with potentially strong wind gusts. Awnings are rated for wind tolerance based on width, length, material and the number of supporting arms. Modern awning designs incorporate compression joints and steel support structures to absorb and resist high velocity winds.
