Why Buy the Smart Awning System?

Comparison of Welded vs. Smart Awnings

There is no question that welded awning frames are durable, and the method has been  standard in the awning industry for some time now. However, if awnings could be constructed quickly, be just as strong as welded frames, and more cost effective, why not?  

Our frames have been through rigorous testing to make sure its durability matches welded frames.  Engineer Certified, and 100% Hurricane Irma proven, makes this awning kit far exceed its competitors.   Anti-vibration technology was created to withstand high winds and earthquakes, even N.A.S.A. uses the same technology. 

Smart Awnings Means Versatility

Here is where The Smart Awning System becomes the winner of awning frame choices: 

Adjustable onsite to accommodate the most difficult corners on walls makes The Smart Awning System a winner among awning companies and commercial contractors.  No more stress of welding or measurement mistakes.  It can be relocated and adjusted for transformations to change the style, or add to existing frames. Our Smart Awnings never lose their strength when adjusted or transformed. They are re-usable, and can be lengthened or shortened if necessary.  If it's welded, it needs to go back to the shop for repair.  This can be very expensive if the measurements aren't correct. 

Reduce Shipping Costs

Let's face it: If a welded frame is shipped to any location, you need to haul it with a flat-bed truck at a high cost. Whereas, The Smart Awning System can be shipped partially or completely unassembled for easy transport, saving you hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Just quickly assemble onsite and install.  Its so easy, a child can build it with a simple allen wrench! When built onsite you can keep your project within budgeting needs and increase your business by expanding your reach!

Easy Fabric Overlay

Covering the frame is easy using the current methods and supplies in the industry  (lace-down or staple-stitch) also, we've added another easier way without sacrificing quality!  The Smart Awning Sytem was created by awning professionals to eliminate welding dependency.  We found it to be an essential part of our business after 3 years of using our kit for many projects.
