The panel support framing will be nominal 14 gauge with prime painted structural tube columns.
Panels shall be a maximum 16” wide with interlocking side ribs. The interlocking ribs shall be a minimum 3” high and turned upward.

Canopy Panels

Canopy panels, fluted or flush, shall be a nominal 24 gauge galvanized steel conforming to ASTM A653 specifications with the galvanized coating conforming to G90 standards. Minimum yield strength of panel material shall be 50,000 psi for flush panels and 40,000 psi for fluted panels. The finish surface of the panel shall receive factory, roller applied, paint coats having a combined coating thickness of .8 to 1.2 mils of dry film thickness of white siliconized polyester formulation. Flush panels are also available in zinc/aluminum coated steel.
