Under this warranty, SUNAIR agrees to repair at our facility or replace free (at our option) any hardware or component part, not including labor costs and any in the field labor related to the repair. Any defect must be reported within the warranty period listed above.
WARRANTY EXCLUSIONS. Normal wear and tear is not covered by this warranty. SUNAIR assumes no liability for damage due to faulty installation, use or misuse for which the product was not intended or improper maintenance. SUNAIR is not liable for damage to any structure to which the awning is attached, or to property above or near the awning. This warranty does not cover any damage to a structure caused by nature such as acts of God, ice, snow, rain, high winds, vandalism, neglect, fire, use of which the equipment is not intended, weights or loads allowed to accumulate, or normal wear and tear from use.

The return shipment is to be freight prepaid by the Buyer, and under no circumstances shall the Buyer deduct the value of the returned merchandise or the freight from any remittance due.
THIS WARRANTY IS VOID IF AWNING IS NOT REGULARLY
MAINTAINED AND CLEANED
Your awning should be in retracted position when you are not on the premises. The awning should not be extended during high winds, snow or rainstorms as damage to the awning and building can occur.
The awning fabric should always be taut and never be allowed to sag. If your awning gear mechanism does not have a built-in stop and the fabric is accidentally rolled off the roller tube, please make sure that it is rolled back up so that the fabric is rolling off the top of the roller tube.
See sketch below. Also, if you use the manual CMO override feature (if supplied) and crank a motorized unit in by hand instead of using the motor, make sure that the fabric rolls up on top of the roller tube.
If your awning is equipped with the optional stationary Outrigger Post System which is covered by a 5 year warranty, your awning will withstand normal inclement weather conditions. A required pitch of 3 per foot of projection is necessary for proper water drainage. This optional post system is not designed for severe weather or snow accumulation.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE INFORMATION
Proper care and maintenance is important if the maximum life of the product is desired. Routine care is simple but certain recommended procedures should be followed.
Acrylic fabric should be cleaned regularly with a soft brush before substances such as dirt and roof particles become imbedded in the fabric. Most fabrics used today can be cleaned with mild detergent. Please check with your dealer for separate care instructions.
For Retractable Awnings only:
For extended storage periods, make sure your awning is dry and free of debris before retracting to prevent possible mildew. The valance can be removed and stored separately. Unscrew one front bar end cap, loosen fabric locks on both ends and slide valance out.
Units over 18 ft. in width will require a center support to keep the roller tube straight. The center support may discolor the fabric over time. This is considered normal, wear and tear and is not covered by the warranty.
If installation is near salt water, please wash the awning at least once a month with fresh water and spray all moving parts with silicone. Proper care should be taken to prevent over spraying of silicone on the fabric.
Motors do not require any maintenance. The motor is installed inside the roller tube. Should the motor get out of adjustment, do not re-set the motor limit switches yourself, notify your SUNAIR awning dealer.
