Clam Shell Awnings
The Clam Shell awning has been a Floridian favorite since the 50's. Today's clam shells offer non-code hurricane shutter protection and a sun shade awning for a cooler home. The clam shell is hinged mounted at the top of the window with adjustable support side arms. This type of awning allows the homeowner to keep the windows open during a light rain storm.
Clam shells awnings are built using a series of slats that curve toward the bottom. The slats are heavy extruded aluminum and re-enforced with stainless steel rods and bolts. They are available in the standard white color, but you can mix in Florida Keys' tropical colors on different slats to customize your style.
