New Custom Page Layout, Camera Views & Illustrate Potential of Shade Projects

Tri Vantage®, the nation’s largest distributor serving awning, marine and furniture markets, has released an update to Awning Composer™ 5, adding features that make it easier for awning fabricators to create custom-branded, professional-looking presentations that illustrate proposed awnings for homes and buildings.
