Our Story

Read More

Walker Canvas Awnings Inc. is a leading designer and manufacturer of custom fabric awning, canopies and carports and serves the entire southern half of Florida and the Caribbean.

Company owner, Peter Walker, is an award winning designer with over 30 years of experience in the awning business. A Florida native, Peter designs awnings that capture the unique flavor of tropical living. Every awning is manufactured using only the strongest and highest quality materials that out type of weather demands!.

No matter how well an awning is engineered and fabricated, it can still fail if it is not properly installed. The most critical aspect of installation as it relates to wind hurricane resistance is anchorage. This involves the location, type and strength of the connections from awning to the building structure or foundation.

Awning subjected to high winds develop considerable uplift forces which must be resisted though poles firmly attached to concrete or out arms securely attached to the building. Improper attachment can not only lead to the failure of the awning itself  but can ca\use extensive damage to the customers building should it become only partly detached. This happened countless times during hurricane Wilma and caused extensive damage to roofs and related structures.

The metal framework of out awnings is selected from either schedule 40 aluminum pipe or schedule 40 hot dipped galvanized steel pipe. We do not use the thin walled steel tubing used by most of our competitors.

Additionally, we go beyond the minimum code requirements providing extra truss work and bracing. While this adds some cost, the added benefits of increased frame strength stiffness and product durability justify the added investment.

All frame corners are mitered and fully welded together completely sealing the pipe interior from the corrosive effects of moisture and salt air.
