Awning Designs By Projected Metals

At Projected Metals, all of our awnings are built in house at our 6000 square foot shop located at 3800H Tryon Rd in Raleigh, at the corner of Tryon and Gorman St. To get an idea of how the process works here is a brief breakdown of what we do. Our designers create a drawing or rendering of every awning project during the concept process. From there the awnings come to life in the weld shop. Our welders build the awning out of aluminium which is very strong and at the same time very light to make installation easier and safer. Once the frame of the awning is built the cover of the awning is then made to fit the frame. Our covers are sewn in house using Sunbrella fabric and outdoor polyester bonded thread to ensure the longevity of the awning material. Once the covers are sewn, they are securely fixed to the awning frame. The awnings are then ready for installation. We pride ourselves on designing, manufacturing and installing our own awnings and know that every step of the process was handled with care and to the highest standards. Nothing leaves our shop until it’s perfect!
