Passing the test
It is important that our canopies can stand up to the British weather and everything it has to offer. Lots of time and money is invested in testing, following strict procedures when doing so.
Our canopies are designed in compliance with the Eurocodes, including BS EN 1991-1-3 for snow loads and BS EN 1991-1-4 for wind loads.
All full scale product tests are undertaken with loads consistent with the Eurocodes (which have succeeded BS6399). These tests have been verified by independent structural engineers. In addition we have our own in-house ‘test rig’ which allows us to constantly improve all of our products.
