Solid, Pattern and Multiwall polycarbonate/PETG plastic panels used
to manufacture the Pretense canopy system are completely recyclable.
The resin canopy can be reground and remanufactured into countless
types of consumer products, thus not increasing materials sent to a landfill.
Our packaging is designed to be entirely recyclable, making it easy to
divert construction waste from landfills.
Increase demand for building products that incorporate recycled content
materials, thereby reducing impacts resulting from extraction and processing
of virgin materials. Our Solid, Pattern and Multiwall polycarbonate/PETG
panels used to manufacture the Pretense canopy system are made with
40% pre-consumer recycled content.
Norton Industries, Inc. products are manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio 44107.
"Manufactured" is defined as the final assembly of components into the
product that is furnished and installed. This does not include on-site

Note to Installer: Care must be taken when installing canopies so that
they do not cover or alter zone of fire suppression system or smoke
detection devices. Refer to NFPA, local authorities and project specific
engineered documents for possible restrictions and important installation
Although Norton Industries has not performed specific seismic testing
on our canopies, research shows:
The International Building Code requires the attachment of free floating
architectural components to be sized for three times the design load.
Norton Canopies weigh less than 100 pounds total. A 3/32 galvanized
aircraft cable is used with a maximum weight of 104 pounds each. There
are a minimum of four cables (six recommended) on each canopy.
The break point for each cable is 520 pounds.
The International Building Code allows architectural components to swing
freely as long as they will not be damaged or cause damage. Pendulum
reaction information is based on length of aircraft cable used. Restraint
of canopies is not recommended.
The best storage method is in the closed shipping container. If this is not
practical, use the following guidelines:
