Parts of an Awning

install9WARNING: Failure to follow these instructions could result in PERSONAL INJURY!

WARNING: Do not remove the plastic safety sleeves from the lateral arms until instructed to do so.

WARNING: NEVER ATTEMPT TO REPAIR OR DISSASSEMBLE ANY PART OF THE AWNING WITHOUT FOLLOWING REPLACEMENT PART PROCEDURES SUPPLIED BY THE MANUFACTURER. TRYING TO DO SO WITHOUT PROPER INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY!

Before starting

Before beginning, please familiarize yourself with the components of the awning as shown in Figure 1, and the supplied Fasteners / Part List shown in Figure 1.

Find the mounting brackets (wall or soffit) in the package (they are separated from the awning itself).

If you are mounting your awning on a soffit, please go to Soffit Mount - Appendix C for this type of installation.

Your awning’s pitch (angle) is pre-set at the factory.

For example: If you mount the awning on the wall at 9 ft. from the deck/patio, the lowest point at the front bar of the awning at full projection will be 6 foot 6 inches - see above picture. The Awning pitch (angle) can be adjusted after installing the awning.

Note: When making the decision on the mounting height, remember that the awning requires 8 inches of unobstructed area along the whole length of the awning to fit the mounting brackets on your wall, 9 inches of unobstructed area along the wall needed if mounting with a hood

To assure head clearance at the front of the awning, we recommend to install the awning above 7 foot 6 inches from the deck/ patio, with an optimal mounting height of 9 foot or above.
With the above in mind, decide on the mounting height for your application. If you need help, call our toll-free hot line at 1-800-474-9404.
Measure up from the deck/ patio floor on one side and make a mark at your desired mounting height (must be at least 7’ 6"). Make a second mark 8 inches below the first mark. The space between these marks must be clear of obstructions, (light fixtures, etc) all along the length of the wall. Using a chalk line or a string, snap a level line on the lower mark for the length of the awning. The bottom of the wall brackets will rest on this lower line.

NOTE:  For ease of mounting the awning into the brackets, it is very important that the line be straight and level.

Locating the brackets

CAUTION: PROPER LOCATION OF THE BRACKETS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THE AWNING MOUNTING. IT IS CRITICAL THAT YOU FASTEN ALL THE MOUNTING BRACKETS TO STUDS, JOISTS, HEADERS OR OTHER MAJOR STRUCTURAL MEMBERS.

Even a moderate wind exerts great force on the awning and mounting brackets. This is why it is most important that all the brackets will be fastened properly and securely. Proper location will also make it easier to insert the pre-assembled awning into the supporting brackets.

WARNING: FAILURE TO SECURELY FASTEN ALL THE BRACKETS TO THE WALL COULD RESULT IN THE COLLAPSE OF THE AWNING AND CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY.


1. Installation of Mounting Brackets

install11

Fix the Mounting Brackets (1) to the wall or ceiling, taking special care with the alignment of both brackets, so that when you install the square bar in the brackets it will fit correctly and will be leveled. The distance that both bracket should be apart is equivalent to the length of the square supporting bar (3) minus 5" from each side. In other words, if your square supporting bar is 16 feet long, that is 192 " long, both brackets should be 182" inches apart.  If the size of the awning requires additional brackets, these will be equally spaced between the outside brackets  mounted 5” from the end of the square bar.

If the wall is a solid concrete wall, you will need the 1/2" drill bit for concrete provided in the installation kit. Fix this drill bit to a hammer drill and drill the four holes as previously marked on the wall.

Insert the wedge anchors provided in each of the four holes. Screw the Mounting Brackets to the wall using the screws provided 1/2" x 4".  If, however, the wall is a wooden wall, use the 3/8" wood drill bit provided in the installation kit and drill the four holes as previously marked on the wall. You will not need to insert the wedge anchors. Screw the 1/2" x 4" wood lag screws provided directly to the wall.


2. Installation of the Square Bar

Fix the square bar (3) between the two throats of the bracket (6).

Fix the square  bar with the nuts (4) and bolts (5).

3. Adjustment of Awning Pitch

Your awning’s pitch (angle) is pre-set at the factory. For example: If you mount the awning on the wall at 9 ft. from the deck/patio, the lowest point at the front bar of the awning at full projection will be 6 foot 6 inches - see above picture. The Awning pitch (angle) can be adjusted after installing the awning.

Note: When making the decision on the mounting height, remember that the awning requires 8 inches of unobstructed area along the whole length of the awning to fit the mounting brackets on your wall, 9 inches of unobstructed area along the wall needed if mounting with a hood.

The support arm mechanism will be attached to the  square bar (3) that has previously been fixed to the wall.  The arm support will be fixed  to the square bar by the screws (2) and their corresponding nuts.
The mechanism that supports the arm, has a set of internal teeth that will give a preset pitch to the awning.  By turning the pitch screw (1) on both arm support mechanisms we will set the pitch of the awning.
