Compass' Colorbeam Aluminum Framing System was developed by engineers to be a structurally superior alternative to traditional “light frame” aluminum systems. These traditional aluminum materials were developed back in the 60’s at a time when building codes were lax or non-existent.
In Florida specifically, the cycle of hurricanes over the past 25 years exposed the total inadequacy of aluminum construction and the framing materials used. Each passing storm lays waste to virtually every aluminum screen room, sunroom and patio leaving an enormous pile of metal scrap in its wake.
The Colorbeam system was created to break this cycle of build and re-build. Our experience in dealing with hurricanes has proven one thing- insurance companies are wary of inferior construction and are looking for ways not to pay you. The need for a better alternative like Colorbeam is now a necessity.
Why Building Materials Matter - Study the Facts
Colorbeam vs. Traditional Aluminum
Aluminum has been the go to material for years in the patio enclosure industry. It’s strong and easy to work with. However, rising metal prices have forced suppliers to produce thinner and cheaper aluminum gauges in order to maintain profit margins. Contractors then use this lower quality material to build your project, relying on your inability to notice a difference. It’s no wonder, life threatening structural failures are on the rise. We have seen aluminum being used that is not much thicker than a soda can! Do you want to spend your hard earned money on something built like a soda can?
Colorbeam vs Vinyl
Buyer beware...there are sunrooms being built with vinyl framed materials that have no structural reinforcement whatsoever. Vinyl framing in this form is a disaster waiting to happen. It may look nice and you may be enticed by an artificially low price, but it’s important to remember what your grandfather told you: “You get what you pay for.” Before buying a vinyl framed enclosure make sure you see (and touch) the structural components that they “say” will stand up to hurricane winds, when they inevitably come.
Colorbeam vs Wood
Wood is versatile and strong, but has severe limitations in sunroom construction. This is because it’s susceptible to termites, unsightly rot and must be clad or covered with appropriate material for protection. Its bulky nature hurts the aesthetics, reducing the popular open sightlines desired in sunroom design.

Factory Direct: Eliminate the Middleman Markup
When you work with Compass, you get a true factory direct product. This allows us to provide far superior materials at very competitive prices. The typical supply chain markup makes it necessary for middleman like wholesalers and dealers to cut costs in order to maintain profit margins. They do this by selling thin gauge framing that is not much thicker than a soda can and using appliance grade coatings that are not intended for outdoor use.Learn More
