PLEASE NOTE: Please select NO HOOD option for ceiling/soffit mounting.
The hood is constructed of aluminum and is powder coated to match the aluminum frame color. The hood attaches to the awning’s rear torsion or square bar. This option is highly suggested for roof mounts, as well as wall mount applications, where there is no protection within 2’ over the unit such as an eve or soffit.
The hood will protect the first 10 inches of the fabric when the awning is retracted. Without a hood, overtime you might see some discoloration of the awning fabric in this particular area when the unit is extended. If the awning is motorized, the addition of a hood may help to extend the life of the motor.
