How to Measure for Dome Awnings

dome_meas1Step 1
Mark up 7 feet from sidewalk or bottom of door on home where you want your dome awning. If you have a stoop or step down to a pad or landing please give us that information.

NOTE: If your door swings out your dome awning must project out (2 to 3 projection) at least 6” more than the width of the door. You can mount the dome awning above the door if you have room to keep the door from STRIKING the dome awning.

dome_meas2Step 2A (for dome awnings over doors)
From the 7-foot mark, or as required, measure up the side of the home (from 1 to 2 drop) to where you want the dome awning to stop at the top. This is your drop. You can go up as high as you would like as long as there is no overhang or projecting off sets.

dome_meas3Step 2B (for dome awnings over windows)
First decide whether you want to mount the awning on the window frame or outside on the home itself. In either case to determine the drop (from 1 to 2) you must find where the curve of the window starts to go straight down the wall. Make a mark and then measure to the top of the arch and that give you your drop.

*Important: You can put dome awnings over square windows. However, you must either add to the drop or width to cover the corners of the windows. You can make the drop and projection different and create an irregular dome to fit the window if necessary.

Your projection (from 2 to 3) can be any length you would like. If your projection is greater than the drop this will change the shape as a true dome awing. In a true dome example, the drop would be 36 inches, the projection would be 36 inches and the width would be 72 inches. Remember that TCT&A Industries can create any shape dome looking awning you would like.

Step 4
The width (from 4 to 5) should be at the point the window stops curving. If dome awning is to fit square window see above for help measuring.
