BEFORE YOU START:
Please read instructions completely prior to attempting installation. Damages to the awning during installation are not covered by
the warranty. After reading, if you feel that you still need additional installation assistance, please contact a local contractor for
professional installation.
TIME REQUIRED FOR INSTALLATION: 1-2 hours
NUMBER OF INSTALLERS REQUIRED: 2-3 depending
on size
Installation Notes regarding undesirable drop of the awning when extended
Wall construction may not be perpendicular to the ground. Use a level to check. The weight of the awning, especially when
extended, will cause unforeseen force/drag/depression on certain wall materials and affect the drop/drag of the awning when
extended. It is important to make adjustments at the time of bracket installation if you desire zero drop/drag of the front bar
when the awning is extended. The following list of wall materials and steps necessary to correct drop/drag are provided:
1. Wood: The awning weight will force the wood to bow/twist. Place enough (2-4) large washers between wall and
bottom holes of the brackets to change the angle of the brackets in order to compensate for unwanted drop/drag of
front bar when awning is extended.
2. Siding: The awning weight will force siding material to compress/warp/twist as there is a gap between siding and
structural supports in the wall. Place enough washers (2-4) between siding and bottom holes of the brackets to
compensate for unwanted drop/drag of front bar when awning is extended.
3. Brick: Bricks may be uneven. Place a board or flat surface across installation plane to determine whether brackets
will be level. Place enough washers (2-4) between siding and bottom holes of the brackets to compensate for
unwanted drop/drag of front bar when awning is extended.

NOTE: There are many different building surfaces to mount your Beauty-Mark Retractable Awning. AWNTECH provides the most
common of WALL MOUNTING BRACKETS in its standard packing. There are so many building surfaces; Awntech does not provide
mounting bolts and hardware. Read carefully to determine whether you need another type of bracket and read the follow sheet to
determine the types and sizes of screws, bolts, anchors, lumber and tubing you may need to purchase for your specific needs.
TYPES OF MOUNTING BRACKETS
Wall Mounting Brackets:These are the most commonly used brackets. They are included with all awnings. This bracket is
designed for any flat exterior wall mounting surface with a horizontal band at least 10” tall, at least 8’-0” from the eave to the
surface of the patio. It can also be mounted on a fascia (with Guttering removed) Higher than 7’-0” and lower than 9’-6” from the
patio to the bottom of the fascia.

INSTALLING BRACKETS
PLACEMENT OF THE BRACKETS IN THE OPTIMUM LOCATION WILL GREATLY AFFECT YOUR LONG TERM HAPPINESS WITH YOUR
AWNING. BELOW YOU WILL FIND A PLACMENT GUIDE.
DETERMINING BRACKET PLACEMENT
Please refer to the following drawings on page 6-8 to determine your particular mounting
brackets needs.
 If A most closely reflect your application, this requires wall brackets which are included with your awning.
 If B most closely reflects your desired application you will need wall brackets for both applications (which come with your
awning, however, if you choose a roof mounted application you must purchase one roof bracket per wall bracket required.
You must center and secure your brackets into the center of studs or rafters. These are hidden from view behind your wall surfaces
or roof surface. A stud finder is a tool that finds nails with an internal magnet. Nails are a indictor of where studs and rafters are,
but not a guarantee. It is extremely important that you test your conclusions. Nails will be found in vertical lines. Fully install a bolt
in the location where you have concluded your stud or rafter is located; if at any time it becomes easy to turn the ratchet, you ARE
NOT in the stud or rafter. For guide purposes only; most studs are rafters are 12”, 16”, or 24” apart.
Mark all the locations of the studs or rafters in the area where you have decided to install your awning.
It is recommended that there should be one bracket each next to the lateral arms. Choose the appropriate studs or rafters to install
your brackets onto. Hint: short studs above windows and doors are structural and may be used to secure bracket as well as full
length studs. (See the picture in the Below.)

*Typical Height and Material, Varies from Structure to Structure
THE FOLLWING PAGES ARE INSTRUCTION FOR THE MOST COMMON INSTALLATION APLICATIOINS
APPLICATION A – INSTALLING WALL MOUNTING BRACKETS TO FLAT SIDING, STUCCO,
CEMENT OR CULTURED STONE (OF ANY TYPE):
 Place a ladder safely on a flat, dry, stable surface at both ends of where the awning will be installed.
 Using a Chalk-line and string level (or a laser level) mark a horizontal line at your chosen height above the patio.
 Using a stud finder, Mark the center of all the studs along the line where the awning will be installed. Failure to center bolts
in structural studs will cause premature failure and result in awning collapse and possible injury.
 Mark both ends of where the awning will be installed on that line.
 There should be one bracket within one feet of each end and or close to the lateral arm and then distribute the rest of the
bracket(s) evenly spaced across the awning torsion bar. Choose and mark the best studs to install the brackets on given
those requirements.
 Cultured stone surfaces may require a grinder to flatten off the area where the brackets are to be installed.
 Using the bracket as a template (the top of the bracket has a ridge on it), mark the holes. Place the bottom of the bracket
on the chalk line. BRACKETS WILL BE THE LOWEST POINT OF THE AWNING.
 For Stucco or cultured stone: Use a 5/16” masonry bit to get through the surface. Drill a pilot hole into the stud beyond it
with a 3/16” wood/metal bit. Using a ratchet, install (2) 5/16”x3” lag screw and (2) 5/16” washer to secure the bracket to
the wall.
 For Concrete surface: Use a 5/16” masonry bit to drill 3” deep holes into the surface. Insert (2) 5/16”X3” wedge anchors
into the hole. Install a washer on each anchor. Place the bracket so the anchors come through the mounting holes. Install
another washer and fully tighten the nuts.
 For flat sidling: the easiest way is to mount a 1”X5”-6” treated/painted timber beam (the same length as your awning
width) through the siding into the studs using (2) 5/16”X3” lag screws and (2) 5/16” washers. Then you mount the awning
to the studs through the timber beam. Or mount a 2”x5”-6” treated/painted timber beam (the same length as your awning
width) through the siding into the studs.
 Repeat the process for the remaining brackets.
 Seal around each bracket with a clear paint-able silicone caulking.

 Mark both ends of where the awning will be installed on the line.
 There should be one bracket within one foot of each end or close to the lateral arms and then distributes the rest of the
bracket(s) evenly spaced across the awning torsion bar. Choose and mark the best studs to install the brackets on given
those requirements.
 Using the bracket as a template, mark the holes. Place the bottom of the bracket on the chalk line.
 For aluminum or vinyl: Mark a 5-1/2”5-1/2” square (centered on the stud left to right and on the bracket vertically) where
the bracket will be placed. Cut the siding with a sharp utility knife.
 For all other siding: Mark a 5-1/2”X5-1/2” square (centered on the stud left to right and on the bracket vertically) where the
bracket will be placed. Cut eh siding with a circular saw set at the depth of the siding.
 Make the appropriate number of 5-1/2”X5-1/2” wood blocks made from a piece of 2X6 Lumber.
 Using the brackets as a template (the top of the bracket has a ridge on it) drill (2)5/16” holes in the blocks. Sand the
corners and pain and blocks to match your exterior paint color.
 Drill a hole into the stud with a 3/16” wood/metal bit.
 Using a ratchet, install (2) 5/16”X4-1/2” lag screws (9/16” socket) and (2) 5/16” washers to secure the bracket to the stud
behind the block.

wall.
 Mark both ends of where the awning will be installed on the line.
 Identify the location of the structural supports. Typically surface screws make them easy to locate.
 The structural supports are typically vertical, so you will need to mount a piece of 2X6 treated lumber (4” longer than the
awning) onto the surface. The bottom corner of the lumber should be on the chalk-line. Mount it temporarily with 3” SelfTapping sheet metal screws. Mount another 2X6 (same length) one on the inside of the metal, again with 3” self-tapping
sheet metal screws.
 There should be one bracket within one feet of each and or close to the lateral arms and there should be one bracket within
one feet of each end or close to the lateral arms and then distributes the rest of the bracket(s) evenly spaced across the
awning torsion bar. Use the chalk-line to mark another line on the 2x6 lumber, 1” up from the bottom ends, using the
bracket as a template, mark the holes, place the bottom of the bracket on the chalk line.
 Drill holes through the front board with a 5/16” wood/metal bit.
 Use a ratchet, install (2) 5/16”x5” lag screws (9/16” socket and (2) 5/16” washers to secure the bracket through the front
board and into the back board.

INSTALLING THE AWNING ONTO THE BRACKETS
 Place a ladder safely on a flat, dry, stable surface at both ends of where the awning will be installed.
 Assure that the awning is in the closed position and the arms are tied closed. This will prevent the unit form inadvertently
opening while being lifted into the brackets.
 With the help of an assistant (or two if your awning is more than 12’ long), lift the awning to the brackets and slip the
torsion bar (back bar) into the brackets. Make sure the torsion bar slides all the way to the back of the bracket. Then slide
the retaining bolts into the brackets. Center the unit as needed then tighten the nuts on the remaining bolts.
 If the torsion bar does not easily slip into the brackets, Makes sure all the brackets are horizontally aligned.
 Once fully secure, retighten the nuts on the brackets and carefully cut the sip ties off the arms.
ADJUSTING THE PITCH OF THE AWNING
CAUTION: DO NOT ATTEMT TO ADJUST THE PITCH IN THE RETRACTED POSITON.
 Extend the awning completely.
 First identify the pitch adjustment brackets (K) (see diagram below)
 Loosen the top bolt (P) and bottom bolt (R) (does not remove them, just allow them to be moved on the bracket at both
ends. This operation requires a 20mm or 3/4 socket/wrench.
 Have your helper(s) hold the front end of the awning.
 Turn the bolt (Q) courter-clock-wise to lower the pitch and clockwise to raise the pitch on both ends.
 Once you adjust the pitch to your desired level, tighten up the top bolt (P) and bottom bolt (R)

(Q). After you are happy with the results retighten (P).
 The pitch adjustment range is 0 Degrees to 15 Degrees.
 In order to get zero degrees pitch you must make sure of the following:
 Wall surface must be flat and at an exact 90 degree angle.
 Make sure the brackets are flush against the wall.
 If you still feel that you cannot get zero degree pitch then the brackets must be leaving forward slightly. You can put a
washer or two between the mounting surface and lower hole of the bracket to raise the bracket so you can get a zero
degree pitch.

RISKS & WARNINGS
Please handle with care when you open the package and during assembly and installation. The frame parts are made of metal
and parts may have sharp corners. Please keep children away during assembly and installation of awning.
Caution improper installation of mounting brackets can cause damage or personal injury. The bracket bolts must be secured to
a stud. The brackets should be secured with lag screws as close to the center of the stud. When fully extended the weight of
the awning exerts significant torque on the torsion bars. Failure to center bolts to studs will cause premature failure and result
collapse and injury. Do not leave the awning extended during extreme weather conditions such as high winds, rain snow and
ice. The extreme weather conditions may cause the arms to break and can cause injury or property damage. Awntech does not
take responsibility for any weather related or improper handling of awning.
Never attempt to repair or dissemble the lateral extension arms. The arms support your awning are manufactured with
structural grade stainless steel cables and high tension arm springs located inside the arms. Serious injury or property damage
can occur if attempting to install without restraining. If you have any questions, please contact us at 800-203-7049.
DAMAGE DUE TO IMPROPER ANCHORING, STRONG WINDS, RAIN SNOW OR ICE
Awntech ® Corporation does not guarantee its retractable awnings against damages that is weather related (such as strong winds, rain, snow or
ice) under any circumstances. These awnings are designed to protect the customer from the sun and UV rays. They are not designed to hold
snow loads, ice loads, water pooling loads or loads from debris such as leave and falling branches.
Also, if your awning is not anchored securely, it will lift. If your awnings start to lift we are not responsible and will not send replacement parts.
Securely anchoring is your responsibility. We do not provide anchors because there are many mounting types. You may find the correct anchor
to purchase by review our installation instructions on starting on page 5.
When it comes to maintaining your awning, it is the best to be safe rather than sorry. This means that it is best to keep your awning retracted
until you are ready to use it, and then retract it when you are finished. If you know that a strong weather front (rain or wind speeds of
30MPH+) is coming, retract the awning.
