Awnings Unlimited uses only the highest quality awning materials.
We use minimum .030" size aluminum pans for our patio covers. Our patio covers, also known as deck covers, aluminum awnings and acrylic awnings, are engineered and built to specifications that withstand all types of weather: snow, rain, wind.
Our acrylic awning material (lexan thermoclear) is 250 times stronger than glass. An acrylic awning is also lighter than glass, and you don't have to worry about it easily cracking or breaking.
Having an acrylic cover allows more light through than a patio cover with aluminum. You can also choose to have your patio cover part aluminum and part acrylic skylights. This is quite a popular combination as it is an awning that provides some shade, and some light.
