Lexden Entrance Canopy

Lexden Entrance Canopy

The Lexden Entrance Canopy has a stylish, minimalist appearance that fits in well with many building styles and makes entrances stand out prominently. It has a strong aluminium construction that is covered with high strength polycarbonate roof sheets.

Due to its square, edgy design, the Lexden Entrance Canopy provides stylish shelter for new builds and contemporary building designs and is particularly popular with offices and commercial settings, including retail and leisure organisations. Its mono-pitch design provides excellent protection from the weather and, if installed above a window or doors, it can also help to keep a building’s interior cool on hotter days.

High UV Protection – The roof panels are treated with a high UV coating that protects from high levels of UV rays. The UV coating also prevents the polycarbonate panels from discolouring or losing their shine.

Fire Resistance – The polycarbonate roof panels that are supplied as standard (clear) have passed the UK fire rating BS 476 Part 7 Class 1Y and the European fire rating EN 13501-1 B s1 d0.

Light Transmission – The polycarbonate panels transmit high levels of natural and artificial light, keeping the canopy underneath well-lit. Please see the chart below for the results from the method DIN 5036:

Clear (Supplied as standard) 87%
Bronze 50%
Grey 55%
