Awnings, Screens and Shade Manufacturing

Automated solutions for manufacturing awnings, canopies, screens and shades are used to produce top quality residential or commercial grade products. These fully automated solutions will manufacture awnings providing efficiency welding faster than other processes.

Welding motorized or retractable awnings provide product longevity and offer a leakproof product. Welding heats in-between the two layers of fabric eliminating the needle punches from sewing and provides a more aesthetically pleasing seam to your end customer.

Each solution is fully customizable and can incorporate several different options including, welding, unwinds, keder applications, multiple stations, grommets and more… Each solution can be built to meet your needs today but also grow with you throughout the years.

Acrylic and PVC materials can both be welded by either hot wedge or hot air welding for full versatility. Below you will see several options both for automating your awnings, canopies, marine covers and more. Still have questions?
