Model 1000XT Measuring Instructions
1. Measure the height of the wall where you want to install your awning. You need at least 7 ft. from your deck or patio floor to the bottom of any roof, eave, or overhang to fit the Model 1000XT. Be sure to allow clearance for doors, light fixtures, electrical outlets, etc. You can install these awnings up to 10 ft. off the floor.
2. Measure along the side of your house to decide how wide an awning you want. The Model 1000XT comes in pre-cut widths from 8 ft. to 20 ft. in two-foot increments. If you have railings on the deck or patio, measure between the railings to make sure the awning support arms will fall inside the railing.
For example, a 12 ft. wide awning needs a space of at least 12 feet to fit inside the railings. The actual fabric width is 10 in. less than the awning width.
