Here you will find examples of bespoke canopy systems made to specific customer requirements.
DioMet offer various standard sized glass canopy products however should you have a specific requirement we are more than happy to help.
Your canopy design can incorporate various materials and can be made to match existing steelwork, colours, patterns :
- Stainless Steel
Our stainless steel canopy items are manufactured from 316G (marine grade) stainless for external use. We offer a brushed finish to 320 grit as standard but can also provide mirror polished products too. At Diomet we have our own in-house polishing facilities at our workshop in Sheffield and all products are given a final polish prior to dispatch.
- Mild Steel / Wrought Iron
The major alternative to stainless steel would be mild steel AKA wrought iron.
Mild steel fabricated canopies can be finished in :
Primer painted : For basic weathering protection to be painted by the customer.
Galvanised : Hot dip galvanized finish to protect from the elements for upto 25 years. This is our standard canopy finish and is highly recommended for minimal maintenance. Galvanised canopies can be painted by the customer at a later date if required . Please make sure that you T-Wash the steelwork prior to applying paint otherwise the paint will not adhere properly, use a product known as 'mordant solution' .
Galvanised and Powdercoated : Canopy will be galvanised, T-Washed and then polyester powdercoated for a durable and smooth finish. We can paint most basic colours requested or coat to a specific RAL code or BS number. Many customers like to match the canopy to the colour of their windows for example. Send us a sample of your material and we can provide a colour-match service too.
Toughened glass panels are particularly popular in our canopy systems providing a modern and contemporary look and giving the wow factor for first impressions.. We use 8mm toughened safety glass as standard with polished edges and radius corners.
Other glass options include frosted / sandblasted, tinted, laminated, screen printed or we can even sandblast a particular design feature into the panel.
Acrylic sheeting can be used to form curved canopies keeping the cost down as curved glass is comparatively very expensive.
