We do not recommend taking off the awning cover unless there is a hurricane warning with winds over 70 miles per hour or more. In that case,
this are the steps to remove the cover:
Cut all the ropes
Roll up the cover to the top of the frame against the wall.
Tie the cover around the ends and the center areas or slide it out from the awning track.
If you take off the cover, fold it and then storage it in a safe place.
Freestanding awnings just take off the cover and then fold it carefully.
After the storm, clean the frame and the reinstall the cover.
If your area suffer the pass of a hurricane, failure to take the above steps may result in a damage to the cover, frame and/or your property.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, or for further advice.
