Powder Coating Process

Our Superdurable powder coat is one of the best in the industry. After removing all surface rust and oil, our frames are coated with an Epoxy TGIC Powder Coating Zinc-Rich Primer. After the primer application, we apply Superdurable Polyester TGIC powder coating.

Glide Elbow™ Fabric Release

With our Glide Elbow™ quick-release mechanism, installation and removal of your fabric is completed with the use of a wrench or cordless drill that has an appropriately sized socket. Not only does our Glide Elbow™ make updating fabric easier, but it also allows you to easily remove fabric for severe weather. Additionally, metal-on-metal wear is minimized with our fabric hook connection.
