Why you should choose an Aluminium Canopy

Author: Courtney Loizou  Date Posted:20 April 2021 

Ute canopies need to be durable, sustainable, long lasting, robust and do the job intended. The material of the canopy is vital in meeting these requirements. We are here to help you decide on the best material for your ute canopy.

Fibreglass canopies are lightweight and fairly durable, however, there are disadvantages. Cutting into fibreglass will significantly weaken it, meaning your options are limited in regard to modifications for your canopy. In addition, fibreglass canopies are not valued to carry heavy loads, which may render your fibreglass canopy unsuitable depending on your intended use. Fibreglass canopies will need periodic re-coating, which is something that aluminium canopies will not.

Steel canopies are another option, which may seem appealing due to their strength and durability. Steel is much heavier and much denser than aluminium and will add significant weight to your vehicle, impacting the amount you can carry and tow with your ute. While aluminium is light in weight compared to steel toolboxes it remains a very durable metal; you can consistently use it and remain assured that the tools inside are safe, without the added weight. In addition, steel needs to be painted or treated against rust. Aluminium is corrosion resistant without any further treatment, making it the number one choice for long-term use.
