Creating your own DIY awning may seem like a daunting task, but the team here at Sailrite® is on hand to help you every step of the way. All of our in-depth awning tutorials include complete materials lists, and you can get all the supplies you need for the job right here in our store. This selection of fixed awning hardware is also a good choice for anyone looking to repair or restore an older fixed-style awning. It includes clamps, bar fittings, bolts, eye ends, jaw ends, post sockets and other components manufactured from galvanized aluminum for long-term performance.
Fixed awnings are defined as those awnings that do not retract or adjust. You can create dome awnings, loose-frame awnings, square-frame awnings and more in this style using these hardware options and galvanized pipes. For example, our square frame awning tutorial recommends the use of various hardware options — including slip fit eye ends and pipe clamps in various sizes — from this selection in our Square Frame Awning Tutorial. This type of awning is a great choice for awnings that will be attached to a wall to shade windows or entryways.
Once you’ve chosen the appropriate hardware and pipes for your fixed awning, make sure to explore our selection of awning fabric to create a style that perfectly complements your unique exterior aesthetic. We’re proud to supply a wide variety of awning fabric options by top manufacturers like Sunbrella® , Sur Last® and Top Gun® in various solid colors and patterns to help you create a DIY fixed awning that precisely matches your individual vision. Sailrite can also assist you with finding hardware, fabric and guides for your shade sails and wire-hung canopies.
