Ullswater Apex Free Standing Canopy

The Ullswater provides an entirely new way to build a free standing canopy using a unique corner structure for ultimate strength and large self-supporting spans. It has a maximum width of up to 6 metres and an unlimited length.

Due to its unlimited length and large width, this canopy makes a unique revolutionary alternative to the basic wall mounted canopy. It is ideal for many environments including schools for use as play canopies and outdoor classrooms, restaurants and pubs for use as outside dining areas and parks and recreational grounds as waiting shelters and covered picnic areas.

Our free standing systems have been around for nearly 25 years and have stood the test of time to give you complete peace of mind.

Maintenance

Our canopies require only periodic cleaning. To clean the roof we recommend a solution of warm water & a non-abrasive cleaner. For more information please see the maintenance schedule which is found in your After Sales pack.

Weather Resistance

During the manufacture of our polycarbonate panels a layer of UV absorber is co-extruded onto the surface forming a barrier against UV radiation. All structural components are made from aluminium, uPVC & steel for ultimate strength and total weather resistance.
