Commercial Awnings

You’ve seen our commercial canvas awnings on buildings for some of the biggest names in business such as Costco, Dietrich’s, & Starbucks. Draw attention with critical signage and provide shelter for your customers.

Is there much difference between the various types of awning fabrics?

Yes, different fibers, weaves and coatings have very specific advantages and different applications. Acrylic fabrics have a rich cloth appearance and are much more colorfast and fade resistant. Vinyl coated fabrics, mostly used on commercial projects, are the most water repellent. Mesh fabrics allow better ventilation and outward visibility. Your awning professional will help you make the best selection.

Our multiple locations allow us to service our contractors looking for commercial awnings in a wide range of Counties & States in the Southwest. We are known as the only choice for top quality & superior awnings and canopies to fit your commercial awning needs. We are located in Southern California and San Diego.

All Accent Awning commercial fixed awning frames are custom crafted by our own highly skilled factory trained professionals in our 30,000 square foot facility. We fully weld (not tack weld or spot weld) all of our frames and miter each joint for strength and esthetic awning design quality. There are no holes or open ends left on our commercial fixed awning frames, and all welds are ground smooth prior to the application of our two step corrosion resistant powder-coating (never spray painted) process. We also offer Aluminum and Stainless Steel fixed awning frames. Simply put “We manufacture the best quality commercial fixed awning frames in the industry” period.

Since 1978 we have used 100% solution dyed acrylic fabrics from Sunbrella for our commercial canopies and awnings. There are over 100 colors to choose from, all of which are the same price and quality. Additionally we utilize various commercial awning materials such as vinyl, back-lit and fire retardant fabrics to enhance your businesses appearance.

The installers were great when they put my outdoor window/door screen.
It works perfectly and it’s going to be great when summer comes around
and that west side window/slider gets the full heat of the sun. It’s
going to make a huge difference and this is the first time that I’m
really looking forward to the summertime. I wished I had thought of
installing this type of outdoor window/door treatment years ago. It
would have saved me tons of money from the sun destroying all the
inside window treatments that I had to keep purchasing because of UV
ray ruining the fabric. So this screen will the perfect fix.


James our sales rep was very informative and helpful
in selecting our drop down shade for our patio. It
came sooner than expected and the install team was
right on time and very professional. We would order
again without hesitation. 5 + Stars!


We have been using Accent Awnings for the past 8-9 years.
Everywhere in our home where we can use any awnings to
block out the hot California sun, we have it installed by
this company. Shaun has been our sale rep for the last
few times span over the past 7 years, and I can not express
enough how wonderful Shaun has been. Shaun is extremely
humble, respectful, professional, absolutely polite,
knowledgeable and caring.

Delivery time varies from 2 to 4 weeks depending on the product type and the time of the year. All of our products are custom built in our own factory. Some however involve longer manufacturing processes. Accent Awning Company powder coats the frames on its custom stationary awnings and this process is done by professional powder coaters and therefore requires more lead time. Retractable awnings and sun screens are also custom built to your color and size requirements but can be manufactured quickly from existing raw materials, leaving turnaround time more a question of seasonal workloads.

Most reputable “big-box” chains selling “mass produced” awnings have a return policy. Usually the awning needs to be repackaged in its original container and the cost of shipping must be paid by the consumer. Accent Awning Company provides a full “turn-key” experience and may be an alternate choice before or after the big-box purchase.
