Calculate how many solar awning brackets you will need. It is based on the length of the run and the distance between the brackets as determined by the span tables. For example a 20’ awning in portrait, with brackets 4’ On Center would require 6 brackets. Why 6? 4’ goes into 20’ – 5 times?? Remember there is an extra bracket on the end at zero. It’s always one more bracket than the run divided by the spacing.
Racking may overhang the last bracket- check racking manufacturer’s spec’s. .
To calculate shipping, we’ll need your zip code of the delivery site and whether there is a fork-lift available onsite to off-load the truck if the order is over 100 lbs.
Submit the number of brackets you’ll need on our
We will return the email with-in 24 hours M-F with your shipping charge, cost of powder-coating for colors and a grand total. We will also inform you if we have your brackets in stock or what the lead- time will be for your order.

Meanwhile, we are here to help you plan your installation for when your brackets get there. If you are working with a structural engineer, we can forward them the engineering calc’s on the brackets so he/she may review them. Also if you provide a picture of the building, we may have some ideas on placement and spacing. We have some tricks for waterproofing over uneven surfaces as well……
