Our units are fabricated with custom cut 50,000 PSI tensile strength Allied Flo Coat® pipe. Flo Coat® pipe has 50% more zinc in the galvanizing compound than other pipe and is 10,000 PSI stronger than the Chinese pipe our competition provides. Other suppliers use thin wall Chinese powder coat pipe in snap-together sections so they'll fit in a 5' long box on the shelf - or soft metal galvanized 'looking' pipe. Ask them to show you their pipe purchase invoice. It won't be USA made Flo Coat® pipe.
Our tarps are 12 mil thick triple layer polyethylene with: 14x14 inner core weave, UV inhibitors, mildew inhibitors, brass / aluminum grommets every 18 inches, reinforced corners with a 3/16" nylon support cord inside the hem all around the perimeter. Our tarps last an average of 3-4 years in the Florida sun. Others offer thinner tarps, plastic grommets, 24" and sometimes even 36" grommet spacing. Wherever you shop, ask for the tarp specs.
We ONLY supply 1-5/8" pipe for 10' support legs and 18' rafter spans. Others will try to provide 1-3/8" for these larger units. We recommend against this because you don't want to find your investment destroyed by the next big wind.
Available for $20 per set, our optional ground anchoring sets consist of 30" long auger anchors + heavy-duty galvanized aircraft cable + turnbuckles.
We know of no others offering such a solid anchoring set. For installation on concrete, eye-bolt anchors are available at home improvement stores and these work very well with our cables and turnbuckles.
With years of local canopy experience, we recommend our anchors with all units. When shopping for a canopy, ask what type of anchors are offered. Beware of those that offer plain stakes or auger anchors less than 30" long because they will easily pull out of the sandy Florida soil in a strong wind and your investment could be destroyed. Anchoring at the footpad only is not a good idea.
