Why have an Aluminium Canopy installed?

A canopy can be useful in a multitude of applications because it provides protection from the elements and increases the amount of living or working space a building has. A canopy can be designed to any shape or size a project requires. For these reasons, most buildings would benefit from having a canopy installed, both for domestic and commercial use.

Extend Your Living Space:

A Canopy can create extra living areas for you to enjoy all year round, especially when used with the added extras such as heaters and lighting to further enhance your outside space.

Shelter from the Weather:

As our canopies can be used whatever the weather, you can enjoy the outside area even in wet weather instead of grabbing an umbrella to stand under.

Additional Home Storage:

Canopies offer a handy solution for storing outside products and furniture, protecting them from various, issues such as bird droppings, tree sap, snow, rain and UV rays that may cause fading damage to their products.

Increased Property Value:

A high quality structure installed at your home will add value to your property in the future when they decide to sell.

Extend Your Party Time:

Outdoor parties are extremely popular especially during the summer, but the weather can never be guaranteed so having a Canopy fitted will ensure that the rain will not ruin your parties, or indeed if it is too hot as your veranda can provide shade when it is just too hot to be out in it. So, a shaded and sheltered veranda area will help to keep your party atmosphere rocking.

UV Rays Protection:

Depending on the roof choice you decide, as mentioned previously, the roofing on our canopies have a high UV protective filter, which will protect you and your family during the hotter months of the year – ask for details when you speak to your local trade partner.

Storefronts and Restaurants:

Businesses with storefront displays can reap many rewards from installing a sunshade. Sun can heat stores with large windows, and sunlight can cause furniture and artwork to fade. Installing an aluminium canopy can keep the interior of your store cool, decreasing cooling costs for your business. Restaurants, bars, and cafes can benefit from shade structures as well. An aluminium canopy can create a welcoming, cool, and sheltered outdoor dining area that increases a business’s usable space while attracting customers with the sights, smells, and sounds of the establishment’s food offerings.

Schools, Libraries, and Other Educational Facilities:

Aluminium canopies are a popular and vital fixture for buildings in educational settings. Schools and libraries often utilize sunshades near entrances, over tables, and on playgrounds to create outdoor spaces for students and visitors to congregate and keep cool. These spaces are especially important in places that cater to children, as shelters provide a space for kids to wait for transportation, eat lunch, and play regardless of the weather.

Loading Docks and Drive-Throughs:

If your business routinely sends or receives shipments of goods, an aluminium canopy over your loading dock can help make loading and unloading inventory much easier. With a shade structure over your loading dock, your employees will not have to try as hard to work around rain, snow, or extreme heat. 5 Stars Trading’s aluminium canopies are fully customizable, so you can order a structure that offers maximum coverage at a height that allows trucks to park underneath it. Shade structures are also invaluable for businesses with drive-through windows. Nobody likes to open their car windows in the rain, but aluminium canopies allow customers to use the drive-through in any weather.
