If you have a C channel awning rail like the ones I make, I would recommend using an awning bead strip which feeds into the Figure of 8 and the Awning Rail called a Kador Strip. This one has a 6mm (sometimes referred to as a 7mm as it is actually a 6mm core with the material around that which makes it more like 7mm) beading on both sides. This is suitable for standard sized awning rails and standard Figure of 8.
This attaches the awning rail and your awning together in the most reliable and weatherproof way! Simply slides in from one end.
We stock 3m Kador Strips as standard but if you require a different length please enquire. Order yours today!
(If you have a Fiamma or Thule Omnistor windout awning canopy, there is a channel you can use in that, however you will need a 4mm-6mm beading for the Fiamma or the 5-6mm beading for the Thule, not this one).
