Imperial's award winning design has been engineered for durability, and unsurpassed quality. The Imperial's all-aluminum frame is finished in a tough white powder coat finish. The heavy-duty arms feature a patented UV-resistant poly coated steel belt tensioning system to provide superior strength. For support, a heavy duty 40mm mounting bar and 82mm round tube are coupled by premium cast brackets as well as stainless steel hardware. Each Imperial awning is custom manufactured to provide a clean corrosion resistant, maintenance free system with strength that is Imperial. Marcesa™ "Hip Roof" is also available in this system.
Imperial Adjustable Valance, unique to the Imperial system is available on both the Imperial and the Imperial Marcesa™ awnings. When retracted the adjustable valance is contained in a cassette tucked neatly behind the standard valance. When desired, this unique feature allows the valance to be extended to whatever length is required up to 5 feet to reduce the glare of water or direct afternoon sun. The Adjustable Valance can be made with the same fabric as on top of the awning or Ferrari Soltis (86% or 92%). These specially designed fabrics allow visibility out while permitting filtered light to enter without annoying glare.
