Fixed Canvas Awning - St. Petersburg - Nautica Apartments

Recently, we had the pleasure of installing a canopy for Robbins Property at the Nautica Apartments in St. Petersburg, FL.  This particular awning offered some unique challenges as they wanted a seamless blend from a traditional fixed awning into a radius marquee awning and then back to a traditional awning.  To further complicate the situation, the customer asked that we not install posts anywhere but the outer edges of the awning keeping the entrance way unobstructed.  In order to accomplish this without sacrificing structural integrity, we added heavy duty support plates (pictured below) where the traditional awnings met the radius marquee in the center.

As you can see, they chose to powder coat the frame in a classy looking deep blue in order to match the dark blue Sunbrella fabric.  Custom heat applied graphics were used to display their multi-color logo as well.  The awning served its purpose of providing shade and rain protection to the complex's clubhouse.  In my opinion it really transformed the look of the pool patio area as well.  Here is a before and after picture so you can decide for yourself whether it made a difference or not.
