enclosure frame replacement

by dave
(smithers bc canada)

the frame on my enclosure was bent from a early heavy snow fall - one side cracked when I tried to straighten it.
The frame is a two piece, hinge a foot from the base and is attached to a slide rail.
Is there a supplier that I can order a complete new frame?

Hi Dave,
Bent and broken bimini top frames is a common problem and people are always seeking ways to replace the parts.
The problem in replacing a bimini top frame for an existing bimini top, is the shape of the existing frame. The frame is normally created first, then the fabric patterned to the shape of the frame. So to answer your question, who ever makes you a new frame will have to have your old frame to copy. Otherwise they won't have even a remote chance of making in fit the enclosure you now have. You should be able to find a canvas shop somewhere within driving distance to take the frame too, then you will be able to get one made.
Hope this helps, thanks for the inquiry.
