Apollo Sunguard uses structural steel and Allied Steel products.
Our Allied Steel products are made from cold-rolled, galvanized tubular steel with a triple layer of protection. Allied products outperform most steels in tensile strength and long-term corrosion resistance, as well as saltwater spray and other weather tests. Hot dip galvanization is also available and is recommended for marine and aquatic environment installations.
Apollo Sunguard uses a special galvanized welding wire.
We use a special galvanized welding wire and then triple treat each weld with zinc (ZRC) coating for extra corrosion protection.

We reinforce all connecting points. Each connecting point has vinyl sewn into the interior to further reinforce the corner.
