Back in the day, you'd have to settle for a fabric awning that would slowly succumb to the elements, but the Palram Aquila 6.74 x 4.59 ft. Extra Awning gives you protection from rain and snow with a modern design that protects itself at the same time. Galvanized steel support arms reach out from your home or business with a sleek, modern style that supports 6-mm thick panels of UV-proof acrylic. These shatter-resistant panels help direct water into an aluminum gutter with a hidden rubber gasket that sends the water off to the sides while keeping you dry. The metal frame has a powder-coat finish that protects it from corrosion and is also offered in a range of colors. Installation is easy, and all the fasteners you need to get it done are included.
