Eastern's SunScape® Awning System


All other awning systems lack the necessary strength in their arms. This can lead to broken arms and the entire awning could fail.   Sunscape® arms are manufactured with top quality extrusions and heavy, thick wall castings that provide superior arm strength.


Most awning manufacturers use galvanized steel cables. Our competitor's cable, after only a year and a half, has completely deteriorated.   Eastern uses only high quality stainless steel cable in our spring tension systems. Under comparable conditions this 13 year-old stainless steel cable shows no evidence of rust or corrosion.


Typically, lateral arm joints are either pressed-fit, riveted or screwed. This type of arm assembly causes excessive wear which weakens the structure and creates an irritating creaking noise with the slightest breeze.   All SunScape® arms joints are permanently bonded with Loctite® Epoxy. This unique method in arm assembly is thousands of pounds stronger than typical methods. Additionally it eliminates noise and joint fatigue throughout the life of the awning.


Most awning manufactures fail to provide an adequate protective finish, if any at all. This photo illustrates the result from poor surface preparation or paint quality.   SunScape® castings and components are painted with an electrostatic polyester powder coating. This superior finish provides an extremely attractive, durable, protective coating which resists cracking, chipping, and peeling.


Most manufacturers do not use stainless steel fasteners. Regular steel fasteners will prematurely rust and stain the frame fabric and surrounding area.   SunScape® is built exclusively with high grade stainless steel fasteners assuring a lifetime of rust free operation and appearance. This is especially critical in all waterfront and oceanfront environments.
