Canopy solutions and options

Our fabricators offer many options, and benefits with toughened glass canopies and galvanised canopies that are sturdy, safe and reliable. Canopies for commercial buildings

The canopy framework is manufactured from galvanised, powder-coated, mild steel or stainless steel supporting glass panels while the glass is either toughened or toughened and laminated dependent on size and location. This can also be either flat or curved.

Support cables can be fastened back to the walls but generally, the supports require being incorporated into the steel or concrete structure of the building during construction to ensure that the steel canopies are firmly attached.

With rain possible any time throughout the year, gutters can also be incorporated into the side or rear of the steel canopies to remove the rain quickly via the best route. The positioning of the gutters is dependent on the slope of the glass.

Fixing for the glass is similar to our standard balustrade glass clips and the diameters and quantity required are dependent on the size of the canopy panels.
