Structural Grade Steel

Awesome Awnings Ltd. use structural grade C350 steel for superior strength, eliminating any excessive flexing of the frame, thereby ensuring no undue stress on the roofing material.

Box Section

In order to meet the structural requirements of the New Zealand Building Code, Awesome Awnings Ltd use square or rectangular ‘box section’ steel. ‘Box section’ has a much higher lateral strength than that of circular tubing, giving less flex in the structural members. In comparison, circular tubing has very good torsion properties making it more difficult to twist, not an attribute that we need.

Certified for Durability

At it’s inception, Awesome Awnings Ltd had the procedural elements of our manufacturing processes analysed by a Registered Corrosion Consultant, Les Boulton to ensure the long lasting durability of our awnings.

Galvanizing

In order to ensure that the frame will not deteriorate unduly, all structural members are mill hot dipped galvanised (both inside and out). All fabricated brackets and fittings are ‘hot dipped’ galvanized prior to the powder coating process.
