Technical Information – Awning Frames

The extruded aluminum frames BH Awning utilizes in the awnings, canopies, and other structures we create are engineered to provide high strength-to-weight ratios to maximize material life and overall performance. Below is some Techical Information on Awning Frames.

Choosing the optimal framing materials for each project is based upon the relationship with the fabric, computer aided design, desired shape, and structural requirements. BH Awning is in the unique and beneficial position to advise on the selecting of framing materials, optimizing the structural design, addressing aesthetic aspects, installing techniques, and developing specifications.

Steel Stitch Frame System:  Staple awnings revolutionized the fabric awning industry replacing the long practice of using needle and thread with steel staples. BH Awing is an authorized Steel Stitch manufacturer.

Lace and Grommet System with Steel Frame:  When steel is the preferred material for an awning or canopy, we incorporate a traditional lace and grommet system. We use high-strength, lightweight mechanical tubing that is cold-formed providing high yield tensile strength values. This tubing possesses a triple coating that consists of a hot-dip flow coat of zinc galvanizing, a conversion layer, and a clear polymer coating.
