Q. What is the benefit of an aluminium system?
A. The Coniston is constructed from aluminium including heavy duty structural aluminium roof bars for ultimate strength. Aluminium is a very strong material, it is not flammable and it is seamless – creating an attractively sleek & robust canopy system. The rear goalpost options includes steel goalposts.

Q. What panels are used for the roof?
A. The Coniston is covered with 35mm structured polycarbonate roof panels which is part of our robust roofing system. The polycarbonate is available in opal or clear. These panels are light in weight and up to 200 times stronger than glass. They offer the best insulation properties available (1.2w/mk) (much better than sealed, triple glazed units).

A. Yes, the Coniston benefits from integral guttering which means that the guttering is hidden giving the canopy a sleek streamlined appearance.
