When we survey for an Awning and find there is plenty of wall space above the window we can generally use our standard brackets. On bungalows and any area with a small amount of wall space above the window we need to use Spreader plates. This bracket allows us to fit lower down the wall to achieve a strong fixing.
If a door opens outwards and there is hardly any wall space above the window it makes it impossible to install an Awning as it will foul and stop the doors opening. For this we use a gutter bracket as seen in image.
The gutter bracket fixes low down the wall for strength and then projects out and up to clear guttering or suchlike. This will clear any door opening and will allow us to angle the awning down.
Pipes or other obstacles can be overcome using a pipe extension bracket
Any other bracket can be made to cover any obstuctions or unusual circumstances.
Rawbolts are used as standard by many Awning suppliers. We chemical fix all our Awnings because once the resin used sets it is harder than the brick itself. Rawbolts expand the brick when tightened and can show surface cracking in the brickwork, chemical does not expand at all and will also fill any gaps inside the frog of the brick thus making it a much firmer and safer fixing.
