This Trenton model courtyard in Sun City Anthem (left) adds over 700 Sq. Ft. of useable
space to the home while providing plenty of shade for the house, casita and plants.
Ace Awning constructed the first steel reinforced Trenton courtyards using multi-layered
design and heavy gauge Alumawood parts.
Steel beams on our single post designs are custom fit and welded by a certified welder.
This provides the strength required to eliminate a post on the small end. This is
one of the many factors that affect cost of a project. When others try to copy our
designs some important details might be overlooked!
Cutting (and welding ) corners
Ace Awning foundation sets all of our structural steel 4”x4” posts for maximum wind
load, live load and shear strength. Huge clear spans of our Dual steel designs require
this for ultimate safety. Covers attached to the home sideways are especially vulnerable
to shear load away from the home. This includes wrap around style side yard covers.
Ace Awning has repaired many covers by other companies that have no clue about steel
Here is one of our .188 wall thickness 4”x4” structural steel posts ready for concrete
in a 44” cube footing. The rebar is welded for strength on our all original 2 post
Single steel post designs also require foundation set posts to keep the beam from
shearing from to home.
