Clifton Cantilever Canopy
The Clifton Cantilever canopy’s main feature is the framework strengthening double column configuration which enables the arms that carry the canopy at higher heights to extend further than if single columns were in place. Depending on the client’s requirement, the canopy can be clad with either polycarbonate or profiled steel. This style of canopy is typically installed in industrial/warehouse locations to provide cover to loading bay doors.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Will I require planning permission?
We always advise that you call your local planning authority as there are no hard and fast rules. They will advise on whether you require planning permission for your proposed canopy. Although it differs from region to region canopies under 30m2 may not require permission but this can be affected by situations such as proximity to neighbours, listed building status, conservation areas etc. so it always best to check. We are happy to provide free of charge, scaled drawings etc. of the proposed canopy structure to assist your application should you require.
- Do you fix your canopies directly onto tarmac?
No, all canopies are fixed on to concrete pads or bases as the structures can lift out from the ground if not fixed into a suitable concrete base due to the uplift created by wind acting on the roof area.
