Why use an Aluminium Frame for a Canopy?

There are so many different types of canopies in the marketplace today, so you may wonder what material would be best to use for a canopy framework. The most popular choices are steel, wood or aluminium. Here at Alumax Ltd we choose aluminium and here is why we prefer this material to others.

Canopy Frame

Benefits of Aluminium

Durability. Aluminium building products are made from alloys that are weather-proof, corrosion-resistant and immune to the harmful effects of UV rays, ensuring optimal performance over a very long lifetime. Please read the explain below to see the other benefits of using Aluminium.


Aluminium is a high-strength and lightweight material, and this has led it to be an extremely popular choice of material. It is widely used in the aviation industry because of this. It is perfect for outdoor use as its strength just increases in colder weather making it perfect for our Ireland's climate.

Aluminium is lightweight

Even though aluminium canopies are composed of durable structural members, they are light enough that most canopy systems can be installed without heavy equipment.

Resistance to Rust

A canopy or an awning is a long-time investment, and you want it to look as new for many years to come. Aluminium is the ideal choice as it is naturally rust-resistant and will not deteriorate over time, unlike other materials. It is also virtually maintenance-free!

Resistance to fire

Aluminium itself is naturally fire-resistant and achieves an A1 fire rating. Aluminium will not burn, even at extremely high temperatures.

Single Piece Sections

Aluminium can easily be shaped and made into single-pieced sections. This makes it easy to install than other alternatives that would require a complex set of parts that has to be assembled before installation. This makes it also much more lightweight than other materials like wood or metal.

Frame Colour

By powder coating the aluminium framework it will add both colour and protection to the structure. So it can be a canopy that makes a statement, or blend seamlessly with the existing environment.


Aluminium does not produce any toxic fumes.


Aluminium is one of the few materials that can be recycled over and over again, and as we are becoming more conscious of the environment aluminium is a perfect choice!

What Are the Benefits of Polycarbonate?

The versatility of this popular material goes from cladding and skylights to roofing and interior design. But the benefits of polycarbonate go far beyond its aesthetic appeal. Architects may choose it for its looks, but project managers, engineers, and DIYers choose it for a number of other benefits that you’ll want to consider before selecting material for your next project. Here’s an overview.

Canopy Glazing

We use Heavy-Duty Impact-Resistant Solid Polycarbonate Glazing.

Polycarbonate Sheets

UV Protection

Flame Resistant

Shock Proof

Benefits of Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate is very strong and can manage to resist impact 250 times more than glass compared to an acrylic sheet that can only resist impacting 17 times more than glass. Polycarbonate is also much more flexible than acrylic and can bend more under load-bearing application without cracking. Acrylic is more rigid and can crack under extreme impact. Please use the link below to see the many benefits of using Polycarbonate Glazing.


Polycarbonate is 250 times stronger than glass and is virtually indestructible. Because of its impact resistance, polycarbonate is a favourable choice for protection from extreme weather, flying debris, or vandalism.


Polycarbonate material weighs about half as much as its glass equivalent, which means you can enjoy lower shipping costs, easier moving and storage, and simplified material handling. The light weightiness of polycarbonate makes it easier to handle, transport and carry. Therefore, the costs involved with the labour and transportation are highly cut down. This makes polycarbonates even more affordable even after purchase.

Property of resistance

Polycarbonates are resistant to impact and any kind of damage. Therefore, these sheets can be used in areas that are prone to stone, hail, rain, wind, storm and snow. Even in the worst case of breakage, these sheets do not produce harmful shards like glass. Also, these sheets are highly resistant to flame and do not cause toxic gases when on fire. So, they can also be conveniently used in areas prone to fire.


Polycarbonate, being so strong and flexible, helps the structures it is used in to be more creatively designed. Unlike glass, the structures that use polycarbonate can be shaped like domes, igloos and many other fancy shapes that add a design feature to the building.

Light transmission

Polycarbonate offers light transmission properties that are comparable to glass, giving it an advantage over glass because it visually functions the same way but is significantly lighter and more durable.

Frame Colour

By powder coating the aluminium framework it will add both colour and protection to the structure. So it can be a canopy that makes a statement, or blend seamlessly with the existing environment.

Ultraviolet protection

One of the most beneficial features of polycarbonate is that it lets in maximum sunlight while keeping out the harmful UV radiations. Therefore, it is the ideal choice when you want maximum light to come in without being harmful. This property makes it the most widely used in greenhouses to help the plants within to grow well while keeping them protected against burning.

Thermal insulation

Both solid and multiwall polycarbonate provide some degree of thermal insulation. Of the two, multiwall is capable of providing a higher degree of thermal insulation because of its interior structure.

Sound barrier

The ultimate property of polycarbonate to block sound makes it a popular material used in areas that require privacy like conference rooms, office cabins, etc.
