Covered with 4mm thick solid polycarbonate panels that have a light weight and an extreme impact resistance. Excellent Weather Resistance
The polycarbonate panels offer high weather resistance against UV rays whilst also protecting those underneath from the rain. A protective UV coating is applied to both sides of the polycarbonate which protects those underneath whilst also preventing the panels from yellowing, changing colour or losing their shine.High Light Transmittance
The polycarbonate panels have an excellent light transmittance which varies for the colour of the polycarbonate. Please see the results in the table below from the test method according to DIN 5036:

The canopy frame is constructed from UNI 6060 T5 grade aluminium that is treated with pure thermosetting polyester powder.
The canopy frame benefits from integral aluminium guttering that has a drain side that collects water and then disperses it down the drainpipe located at the top, through a drip spout.
