SUPEX Curved awning tension roof rafter is cost effective way of stopping that rollout awning sagging and flapping. SUPEX have made an easy to fit adjustable curved roof rafter which can be added to an existing awning in just seconds.
Simple installation - simply attach bracket to van wall with 2 screws, extend awning to fully opened position making sure the key way is facing down, drill a hole in awning tube at appropriate height . Make sure to de-burr hole to avoid damage to awning fabric on closing.
The white powder-coated aluminium rafter is more curved than the Coast and Supex Slight Curve rafters providing greater tension on the awning fabric. This is ideal for awnings where the fabric has already loosened slightly. Smaller awnings need just one while larger awnings would benefit from 2 or even more. They take just seconds to place in position, and can even be used to hang light items off the ground, like drying that towel off.
This is the exact part called 'PC Rafter' by Dometic as suggested for the Dometic Power awning. You will need two for the Power Awning.
