Acopia Group – Entrance Canopy
This Keston Cantilever entrance canopy is a modern addition to a long standing warehouse located in Bognor Regis.
The canopy measures 2m deep x 3.6m long and is clad with 6mm solid clear polycarbonate (solid bronze was considered) laid into glazing bars, which looks similar to, and has the same effect as having glass. The structure and RWGs were polyester powder coated to the required RAL colour. Reinstatement was completed by others.
Installed to replace the original entrance area, the new Keston will serve as the gateway to the newly refurbished premises for many years to come.
- Shape: Mono-pitched Lean-to

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.
- Will there be any additional hidden charges to the quotation?
No, our prices are all inclusive.
- How is the polycarbonate sheeting attached to the framework?
We use a two part glazing bar on our canopies with rubber gasket or cushions to attach the roof polycarbonate sheets as this allows for the expansion of the sheets as the weather heats up or cools down. The rubber gaskets as well as creating a watertight seal greatly reduce noise levels as the sheets expand and contract. We do not screw sheets directly to the framework as this can lead to the roofing sheets buckling and potentially causing leaks due to the possibility of screw heads popping off. In addition to this we never lap one sheet over the other as this can result in an algae build-up resulting in unsightly discoloured patches in the roof.
