The New Yorker a rigid valance awning is a Beauty-Mark Brand by Awntech. This is the most popular fixed awning in both categories (residential and commercial). But don’t be fooled by the price & simplicity. The New Yorker has a full load-bearing frame underneath and it has been engineered and tested to withstand heavy wind and snow loads. Don’t be fooled by many modular fixed awnings on the market. Most will collapse and rip away from your home in gusty wind conditions.
The NEW YORKER 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.
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 NEW YORKER 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 and stripes. Other options include trim color, valance style and signage. Signage is available for an extra charge. See Signage in Accessories.
