AbstractA cover adapted to surround and protect a fabric awning when rolled to the stored position. In a preferred embodiment, a flexible sheet metal strip is mounted directly on the awning, on the upper surface thereof, generally adjacent the structure on which the awning is mounted. The metal sheet covers a laterally extending segment of the awning such that, when the awning is rolled, the metal sheet is rolled over the outer surface of the rolled awning. The metal sheet is mounted on the awning by means of interconnecting members positioned on opposite sides of the awning surface which, when engaged, capture and hold a portion of the awning without perforating it.
