Canopies are now used widely over the globe to provide cover for shading purposes and to protect us or our property against weather conditions, they come in a variety of styles and colours but often many models are designed for calmer climates with less extreme weather conditions. If we are looking for a more permanent and stronger canopy to serve our needs then we should be looking at heavy duty versions of the canopy to fulfil our needs.
It is not just the frame work that is usually made from stronger materials but the sheeting or fabric that stretches over the framework has to be strengthened in some way so that the weather cannot pass through or even disintegrate the sheeting itself.
Many styles of heavy duty canopy are constructed of a tubular steel or aluminium framework that I strengthened and the covers can be made from metal sheeting that is coated with a weather resistant layer, this allows the manufacturer to give a longer guarantee of the lasting power of the canopy and gives the customer more faith in the product.
If fabrics are used they too need to be treated for weather resistance and this treatment may need to be re-applied after a period of a few years to keep the protection to its highest standard.
Often the heavy duty canopies will cost more than the standard models but this is to be expected with the extra strength and treatments that are applied, if you need to purchase one of these it is best not to cut corners to save a few pennies and you finish up with a canopy that just isn’t strong enough, browse around at different suppliers until you find a canopy that meets your needs.
