The higher rigidity of Gatorshield structures means less bowing and deflection than similar aluminum structures under identical load conditions. This means a very stable installation with less potential damage to fabric covers, graphics, and backlit illumination equipment of awning and roof structures. Gatorshield was tested and proved superior in performance during wind load comparisons over aluminum. Tubing is corrosion resistant to extreme & variable weather conditions. Clear and bright triple coated topcoat, zinc-rich ID paint provides unparalleled performance. Salt spray tests outperform all competitive products.
