Cantilever Carports & Canopies
|White cantilever with brackets to garage
Cantilever carports are made to specifications
that require them to withstand extreme weather conditions. They are a fully open sided structure without any posts to
cause damage to car doors. Made from fibreglass the lifespan of the beams is expanded greatly, with no need to
paint or rusting and rotting to worry about these carports are virtually maintenance free. Our main beams are made by hand and manufactured without any ridges which eliminates all
capture of dirt, and are available in any colour to suit customer requirements. Our standard colours are white and brown
and are both charged at the same price, other carport companies will charge you extra to have brown beams.
Main beams are bolted
directly to the wall using the correct wall anchors to guarantee the security of the structure. We also recommend that
a minimum of 1m of brickwork (above the top line of the beam) is needed as a standard fitting requirement, although the fitting
of brackets can be utilised on bungalows and low level buildings.
Professionally finished with aluminium facia and purlin (which
adds further strength and stability to the structure) and guttering to ensure a perfect a match to the rest of the property.
Sizes for our cantilever carports range from 900mm to 3400mm. If you wish to discuss the back to back (apex
style) carport please contact the office.
The sheeting system we use allows for all
the water to flow into the gutter resulting in zero pooling on the sheets*. We feel this
is more efficient in draining the water away than a stepped roof system eliminating the unsightly build up of algae,
dirt and mildew caused by stagnant water, which is likely to reduce the effects of the aging process by at least half.
This can cause your new carport to look tired in a short period of time.
*Our roofing system and the way we fit our sheets acts in the same way as a pitched roof would, in the fact
that all water drains away into the gutter, the stepped roof system acts in the same way as a flat roof and can retain
pools of water on the flat areas.
The sheeting conforms to Building Regulations
2000 (England & Wales), U rated for insulation properties, has a class 3 fire rating, UV filter and anti algae barrier
and manufactured under ISO9001:2000.
All aluminium extrusions
are made and powder coated under British Standard specification 6063t6/6082t6 BSEN755.
The installation of cantilever carports is completed within 4 - 8 hours (1 day) dependant on size. (Very large
or awkward shaped carports may take longer to fit, this will be advised to the customer at time of order).
of cantilever carports by untrained persons is not recommended.*
*Due to the nature of the canopies having to withstand the British weather, we DO NOT offer a DIY kit or supply
only option. All reputable carport companies will tell you, with good reason, that all carports have to be installed
by a professional fitter. This is because many factors have to be taken into account and if an untrained person puts
up a carport it WILL FAIL.
Cantilever carports do not usually require any building
regulation approval as long as the area is 30 square metres or less. It also needs to be open on at least two sides
(see our planning page for more information).
All of our
carports and canopies come with a 5 year guarantee.
All of our carports and canopies have been independently tested, calculated and are fully indemnified and,
we are pleased to say, have exceeded all requirements needed for them to comply with all wind and snow loading scenarios
throughout the UK.
