An awning has 3 dimensions: width, drop, and projection.
Width is the distance from one side to the other.
Drop is the height of the awning.
Projection is how far the awning travels.

Scalloped Valance Patterns
Awnings can have a rigid or loose valance (also known as a hard or soft valance). Hard valances are framed with steel so they have a straight, taut look. Soft valances hang loosely from the frame and move with the wind. Soft valances come with a cutout pattern known as a scallop. The scalloped styles listed below are the most common, but we can create custom ones as well.
