S+S Universal Awning Rail
For all you awning attaching needs, the only rail you should need, for any van, including a T5 - T6 (in theory).
We've worked hard and close to home with a UK based manufacturer spec sheet for this one to create an over-engineered, strong and well-made universal piece of kit with a considered and thought out approach to production, application, packaging and shipping.
This is our STITCHES + STEEL Universal Awning Rail. We've developed this one to pretty much fit on anything- fitting all of our products and the majority of others too. We've thought long and hard about the size of the C section, the diameter of the jaws, the beading that runs though the section, the foot size for mounting it and the sections length for shipping and ease of fitting. We've also worked hard on an environmental level making sure we pack and ship these with metal and cardboard... No plastic!
The rail is designed for 'car derived vans,' 'short wheel base vans', 'long wheel base vans' and 'motor homes,' working with most roof racks, roof bars and pop tops. The rail can be stuck, screwed, bolted or glued into place, we’ve had great results using all depending on the application. We supply each order in a cardboard tube with steel end caps. Along with the sections ordered we also include a roll of double sided sticky tape. While the tape we supply is very strong, especially when the rails are applied and stuck to straight objects with no bends, we recommend you fasten all sections down with screws (at least two on each section, or better still, the factory bolts on the roof of your van). This Awning rail is designed to go with all STITCHES + STEEL awnings and products taking bolt rope (or kador strip) sizes from 6.5mm to 10mm. (the jaws of the C section are deliberately narrow meaning it can usually take smaller rail strips without being pulled out too).
