This low maintenance aluminium carport is available in two sizes, approximately 10'x10' or 10'x16' (3.1x2.9m and 3.1x5.0m) overall. The internal height to the underside of the eaves beam is a generous 6'3" (1.9m). Standard features include a strong and durable powder coated aluminium frame with a tinted twinwall polycarbonate roof canopy. The 10'x10' gazebo includes 4 corner posts. The larger 10'x16' gazebo includes 6 posts. The posts can be set in from the eaves beam if required to avoid an obstruction. Base plates with pre-drilled holes are included to ensure easy fixing into any hard surface. Increasingly carports are used to store anything but cars including motorbikes, mobility scooters, gardening equipment, boats and general storage. If required, the larger canopy is large enough to fully cover most cars but the smaller canopy only covers the smallest of cars. Instructions are supplied for DIY self assembly.

POWDER COATED ALUMINIUM: Extruded hollow section aluminium profiles are cut to size and drilled or welded to form a lightweight and strong frame. Aluminium is ideal for outside use because it does not corrode like steel. The aluminium is powder coated, a tough paint finish which has excellent weathering properties.

TWIN WALL POLYCARBONATE: Twin wall polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable and very practical. Polycarbonate is safe with small children or pets around and easy to handle during installation. Tinted polycarbonate reduces glare by diffusing light in the same way as sunglasses.

CARPORTS - THE BENEFITS: Carports are often the cheapest way to protect your car from the elements but also the quickest and most convenient to use with no doors or locks. Increasingly carports are used as an inexpensive and handy general storage area for a multitude of other things including motorbikes, cycles, boats, garden furniture, tools and equipment, ride on mowers and ladders to name but a few. With open sides the access is convenient but a carport is not as secure as a shed or garage. You should consider security before deciding which items to store in your carport. In essence a carport is just a large roof canopy with open sides so it provides a great storage area for large bulky items which need to be kept dry.

CARPORT SIZE: If possible the carport should be larger than your car to provide full protection. However, it is not essential for the carport to be larger in all cases, especially with an older car. For example, if the car is always parked in the same position under the carport and rarely used then over time it may be possible to discern a difference in the paint colour. But if you only park under the carport in bad weather this would take much longer.

SIZES - WIDTH AND LENGTH: The sizes are listed alongside the price. The first dimension listed is the width and the second dimension is the length. The roof sheets and glazing bars run across the width of the building. The sizes listed are the overall roof sizes.
