Coniston Freestanding Canopy

Coniston Freestanding Canopy

The Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy can be transformed into a freestanding canopy with the use of rear steel or aluminium posts. The Coniston is a popular, versatile canopy that is strong, long lasting and aesthetically pleasing. It features a strong aluminium frame with rear steel/ aluminium posts and hidden integral guttering. It is ideal for those that would like a wall mounted canopy but do not have a suitable wall to fix to. This canopy gives the wall mounted canopy effect whilst being completely self-supporting.

The Coniston provides shelter from the worst of the elements, and with our polycarbonate roof panels offering high UV protection, it ensures unwanted heat and glare indoors is minimised during sunny weather.

The rear posts, as with the main canopy structure, can be powder coated to match any RAL colour, to contrast with or match any existing environment but are offered in white as standard.

Covered with our 35mm structured polycarbonate panels from the UK’s leading manufacturer, our systems are classified as non-fragile and comply with the ACR[M]001:2014 ‘Test for Non-Fragility of Profiled Sheeting Roofing Assemblies’, achieving an B classification which is the highest rating possible for a polycarbonate roof.

Resistant to Breakage
Our polycarbonate panels are light in weight, up to 200 times stronger than glass. The Coniston is a heavy duty structural aluminium glazing system which is strong enough to be walked upon as a means of escape and maintenance (with use of boards).

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.

Colour Options
Glazing panels are available in clear & opal. The aluminium and steel framework is available in any standard RAL colour; other non-standard RAL colours are available on request. (Additional costs may apply.)

Insulation Properties
Our 35mm multiwall polycarbonate panels offer the best insulation properties available (1.2 w/m k). Much better than sealed, triple glazed glass units.

Weather Resistance
During the manufacture of our polycarbonate panels a layer of long life UV absorber is co-extruded onto the surface forming a barrier which offers high UV protection from the sun.

Fire Performance
Our structured Polycarbonate sheets have been tested to most European standards & meet the BS476 part 7 with a class 1 fire rating and EN 13501 B-S1, d0.
