Sunbrella performance fabrics have been awarded the Seal of Recommendation by the Skin Cancer Foundation, an international organization committed to the education and prevention of skin cancer, the world’s most common cancer.

Stamford Building Just Got A Box Awning With A Surprise Inside!

Stamford Building Just Got A Box Awning With A Surprise Inside!

The New Haven Awning installation crew visited a newly renovated building in Stamford, Connecticut to install a great looking box awning. From the outside this may look like an ordinary box awning, but if you look closer you can see that there is a shed awning inside! Why you ask? Box awnings are terrific designs because of their straight lines and great advertising space, but they do have a downfall… They are flat on top or for this reason they are sometimes designed topless. By adding a shed awning to the inside we kept the appeal of the box awning and added the all weather protection of a shed awning. The awning fabric we used is Serge Ferrari Précontraint 502 vinyl. The 502 vinyl is a high-performance awning fabric that aids in structural stability as well as offering in a great variety of colors, this awning fabric gives a designer look and feel. It also provides UV resistance and protection from the heat and weather to make sure this awning will last for years.   Have a project that needs the NH Awning Touch? Contact Us Today For A Free...
