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 reinforced construction.

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 freestanding covers.

Single steel post designs also require foundation set posts to keep the beam from shearing from to home.
