As far as the support system/framework, it is made with 1" round tube anodized aluminum. Anodizing is just a process that increases corrosion resistance and wear resistance of a metal. Aluminum is the best metal for the framework of a bimini top. Then, it is treated to make it even better. The fittings and hardware are all heavy duty nylon and stainless steel(mounting screws hooks, and eye straps). Instructions are included with the Vortex Bimini Top. Installation is very easy for anyone with even moderate handyman type skills. It is a very easy 2 person job, with very very basic hand tools. A cordless drill, tapemeasure, screwdriver, pencil, etc. It is a 1 to 2 hour job...maybe a little less with a helper.
Specifics for this top:
