AEGISThe Aegis arm supported canopy is a strong, high quality and aesthetically appealing product that is sure to impress even the most critical of eyes. From the structural components to the nish of the paint, both the top and bottom of each canopy is craftfully nished.
Architecturally, the Aegis product has smooth lines and is designed to prevent bowing from end to end. The body of the unit can be fabricated from multiple options (as shown below) providing either shade only, all weather protection or a combination of the two. Because each of the body options are fully painted aluminum components, corrosion will never be an issue. When the weatherproof self-mating pan option is chosen, a water tight connection between the structural framing and pan is obtained by using #12 stainless steel self-drilling screw with a bonded rubber washer.
Because each Datum Metal Product is fully painted (top and bottom) after fabrication/assembly, all self-mating pan joints and screws are sealed ensuring water tightness and maximum corrosion resistance.
Structurally, the Aegis hanger arm canopy is fully welded and utilizes all 6061-T6 high strength aluminum alloy. Each arm attaches to a 3 square x 1/4 thick tube that is welded to the structural fascia, which supports the rest of the canopy. Available as either static or adjustable, the arms are 1.9 O.D. (or 2.375 for larger/high load structures) Sch.40 aluminum pipe with custom milled ends (also 6061 T-6 aluminum alloy).
As you can tell, each Datum Metal Canopy is designed and fabricated with exacting standards for quality and craftsmanship. Thus, as a standard, each canopy is fully painted (after fabrication & assembly) with a polyester powder designed to meet the performance criteria of the AAMA 2604 coating specication. Higher qualications & premium coatings are also available. And, because scratches happen during installation, each project ships with touchup paint.
