The CHICAGO® elongated dome awning is a Beauty-Mark® Brand by Awntech®. The CHICAGO® style is simply elegant and very sturdy. It’s design is especially great for snowy regions because snow will not pool. Although the Chicago® makes a grand statement, it is easy to assemble and install. The Chicago® it has been engineered and tested to withstand serious wind and snow loads.
Don’t be fooled by many modular fixed awnings on the market. Most do not have a full load-bearing frame and will collapse and rip away from your home in gusty wind conditions. The CHICAGO® testing included extreme wind tunnel up/down draft, obstacle and weight positioning. Awnings can save you as much as 50% in interior energy usage, per area of adjacent coverage (PAMA Energy Study 2012).
All Beauty-Mark® fixed awnings come partially assembled and are easy to install (see tools required below). Installation is as easy as installing a few wall brackets, setting the awning into the brackets and tightening. The frame is manufactured with structural aluminum and stainless steel hardware. The CHICAGO® canopy is made from Beauty-Mark® Acrylic Fabrics, woven from 100% solution dyed acrylic anti-microbial yarns and treated with UV and water resistant coatings.
Acrylic is the number one fabric of choice for outdoor weather endurance. Beauty-Mark® fabrics are available in many designer solids for this model (no stripes). Other options include trim color, valance style and signage. Signage is available for an extra charge. See Signage in Accessories.
