Weather strip systems are used by businesses and home owners when an outdoor space needs to be covered from the weather. They are basically a type of awning that is designed to be more stable than a standard umbrella or lower-grade awning cover. They protect from rain and sunlight and include a variety of features, depending on the model that is chosen.
A weather strip system makes the installation of a fabric cover easier, the fabrics are separate and sealed with a specially designed cord and gasket combination which are inserted into the horizontal profile. This means the covers can be changed more quickly and easily than other awnings, which is useful for businesses that hold events as a new cover can be fitted to match the theme and also allows for easier cleaning and maintenance.
The seals used on weather strip systems are compressed into position by a third oval seal gasket ensuring that every fabric section is completely water tight.
