Unlike the previous awning section, the awning has many different construction methods. In order not to use supporting pillars, construction units often use the gusset plates to catch directly on the concrete wall to support the bottom and the upper cable car to support.



 The construction unit will calculate the traction and support so that the awning will become stiffer and have no shaking which ensures the safety when using. We have to make sure that glass is machined regularly and beautifully, and not leak rainwater down.
