Dockside® Awnings & Enclosures - Commercial & Residental

Covering 30 Years
of Excellence

Our unique position as a market leader in marine fabrication provide us with a vast array of high-tech materials, tools and processes to create extraordinary awnings and enclosures to any specification. The streets are flooded with common, standardized awning structures designed for mass production. While practical, they only aspire to serve minimal aesthetic needs. The design experts at Dockside Canvas Company understand the importance of form, function and the gravity of visual identity in the marketplace. Our portfolio includes a diverse range of possibilities: EZ2CY windows - whether static, removable or fold up actually provide more clarity than glass. Powder Coated frames w/matching fasteners. Interior finishing and trim details. The warmth of woven Sunbrella canvas or the sleek elegance of a modern composite. The function and economy of steel stitch technology. Whether blending with the aesthetic architectural identity of a building, creating an innovative contrast or providing a standard awning for a practical application, at Dockside Canvas Company, the same artistic and engineering principals apply.
