Why Aluminium?

Aluminium Does Not Corrode

Aluminium Does Not Corrode

  • Aluminium is a material that has excellent corrosion resistance

  • Aluminium is 100% recyclable

  • Aluminium is also not flammable and is seamless

Longevity and durability are very important to avoid frequent changes or repairs of the structures saving extra unnecessary costs. Any outdoor products made out of steel that are exposed to water will rust.

Aluminium canopies are suitable for installations in places like ports, biomass plants, airports, and they are very popular amongst powder coating companies, football stadiums, theme parks and much more.

Aluminium Is Lightweight And Easier To Install Or Relocate Than Steel

Aluminium is not as strong as steel but it is almost one third of the weight that's why our retractable structures  can be hand-operated whereas other similar systems have to be motorised with higher costs plus maintenance.

  • Lightweight structures can be installed in a few days, they don't require groundwork and are extremely operator-friendly.

  • All of our structures components are CE certified.
  • Flame retardancy certificates are provided for all kinds of PVC fabrics.
