The Most Popular Canopies of 2020

The Most Popular Canopies of 2020

It’s officially here, we have the finalised list of the most popular canopies based on our canopy sales from 2020.

If you are looking to invest in a shade and shelter structure and are unsure of what type of structure to choose, this post may help by showing the canopies that other schools and companies have been big fans of.

In 2020, we supplied and installed over 30 different products from our range, with each of them installed multiple times at different locations across the UK, for many different sectors. So, let’s look at the five most popular canopy from 2020…

1. The Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy
The Coniston Wall Mounted Canopy really is ‘King of Canopies’, statistics show that it is our most popular product year after year, topping our canopy sales. It’s no wonder as it is so versatile, looks fantastic in any environment and provides the weather protection required including shelter from the rain and over 98% UV protection from the sun, What’s more, it is supplied with a 10 year guarantee and a 25 year life expectancy.

In 2020, we installed over 90 Coniston Wall Mounted Canopies, with a total length of 1271 metres. So, if you have a suitable wall for fixing a canopy to then it is sure to be the canopy for you.

2. Tarnhow Dome Free Standing Timber Canopy
The second most popular canopy is another one that has proven popular year after year and has kept a secure spot at number 2; The Tarnhow Dome Free Standing Timber Canopy.

We installed our first triple Tarnhow Dome Free Standing Timber Canopy for Parkdean Resorts at Ty Mawr Holiday Park in Abergele in May 2020 and I can see us installing many more of these as it looks fantastic.

3. Tarnhow Mono Wall Mounted Timber Canopy
Our range of timber canopies are a big hit with our customers as the Tarnhow Mono Wall Mounted Timber Canopy comes in at number three. It’s easy to see why, our timber canopies are constructed from Glulam Timber which is supplied by FSC Accredited Timber Merchants. There are five structures in our range with some featuring straight timber beams and some featuring striking curved timber beams.

4. Ulverston Umbrella
It’s not surprising that a tensile fabric canopy has made it into the top five, in particularly the Ulverston Umbrella. We have been installing the Ulverston for over 10 years and it still looks just as modern and striking as the first one we installed all those years ago. Brady Primary School in Romford, London loved the Ulverston Umbrella so much, they had four 5m x 5m umbrellas installed in June 2020.

5. Beck Wall Mounted Entrance Canopy
The Beck is a slimline wall mounted entrance canopy that is cantilevered and therefore features no front posts. This makes it perfect for small entrances where front canopy posts are not ideal and could well be the reason it is the 5th most popular canopy. The canopy frame is manufactured from strong aluminium sections so you know it will last for many years due to aluminium’s natural resistance against rust; and it is covered with 4mm solid polycarbonate panels.
