Sonco Tube


Frame and Awning

Gatorshield® galvanized tubing is the preferred choice for the design and Awning Fabrication and other Fabric Covered Structures.  Because of Gatorshield®’s superior strength properties, smaller diameters and thinner wall thicknesses can be used and still achieve greater load-carrying capacity than Schedule 40 pipe.

Gatorshield® Advantages for Awnings

  • Unsurpassed Corrosion Protection – Gatorshield® is more resistant to rust than any competitive tube product. The Flo-Coat process makes the difference!
  • Strength – Minimum 50,000** psi yield strength and 55,000 psi tensile strength provide the ultimate in structural integrity
  • Weld Friendliness – Due to its 99.99% pure zinc coating; Gatorshield® can be easily and safely welded.
  • Ease of Fabrication – Gatorshield® is capable of extreme fabrication without cracking, flaking or otherwise damaging the coatings.
  • Appearance – The clear organic topcoat that seals in the protection produces a smooth shiny appearance.
    *Applicable to products 15 gauge and heavier
