Outsider Framing

The aluminium used in the framing or body of our Outsider Awning is the highest grade and has the highest tempering available.
This grade of aluminium is 2.5 times stronger than the regular aluminium available of the shelf, from aluminium merchants.
This same grade aluminium is used in the marine industry and in the construction industry because of its minimal corrosive and high strength properties.
Shades Direct sources this aluminium direct from the mill especially for our Outsider Awnings.
The stainless used as fixtures in the frame construction is Marine Grade 316 and once again this was selected because of its strength and minimal corrosive properties
You can rest assured Shades Direct is sourcing the best materials available for the Outsider Awning giving you years of problem free ownership.
Shades Direct does not compromise the quality and strength of the Outsider Awning for the saving of a few dollars.
