For those who enjoy living outdoors a wide range of products are available to enable outdoor spaces to be enjoyed all year round.These products have different levels of wind resistance and this should be considered when choosing which model to use and a general indication is noted under each title. Currently these products are used equally for domestic use or in hospitality applications such as Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs & Cafes.

Similar in size to Dutch canopies, maximum size 5m x 1.6, these offer similar protection, and as with the canopies they require a wall space, above head height equal (or nearly equal to the projection).

  1. My brother recommended I might like this web site.
    He was entirely right. This post actually made my day.

    You can not imagine just how much time I had spent for this
    information! Thanks!

  2. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative
    and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very
    happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  3. Highly energetic article, I enjoyed that bit. Will
    there be a part 2?
