Here is a rounded patio awning that we have recently completed. It was the customer’s option to place a rectangularly shaped awning over his curved patio or if he wanted us to follow all contours around his new concrete pad. He decided to follow the contours, so we first started by bending the framework on-site using our electric bender to match the contours. Welding each joint on-site gives the frame a perfectly clean look.
Once the frame is built to specifications, it is time for patterning. This case we used the Proliner 3D measuring tool to achieve our pattern. The frame is measured with the proline and imported into a CAD program. From here, we can manipulate the fabric and make changes before final cutting.
