Curtains should be removed during the summer months as heat will shrink the curtains over time and the summer UV will yellow the clear Vinyl.

How are the sides and base attached?


Generally, a combination of marine snaps and grommets with L-shaped Screws.  We Also use belted ribs that is a tension belt fastened between two fixed points (D-Rings).  These belted ribs are not attached to the curtain panels themselves.  Under breezy conditions, panels will lean into the ribs for bracing to distribute the wind load.
