The first two pictures show the larger 10'x16' carport. The third picture shows the smaller 8'x12' carport. The fourth and fifth pictures show close up detail views with some bolt covers removed for clarity.

Summary:

This low maintenance lean to aluminium carport is available in two sizes, approximately 8'x12' or 10'x16' (2.5x3.7m or 3x5m). Standard features include a strong and durable powder coated aluminium frame with a bronze tinted twinwall polycarbonate roof canopy. The larger 10'x16' carport includes 3 posts. The smaller 8'x12' includes 2 posts. Base plates with pre-drilled holes are included to ensure easy fixing into any hard surface. The adjustable design allows the ridge to be raised or lowered. In addition, the eaves height and the exact position of the support posts can also be varied. Increasingly carports are used to store anything but cars including motorbikes, mobility scooters, gardening equipment, boats and general storage. If required, the 10'x16' canopy is large enough to fully cover most cars but the 8'x12' only covers the smallest cars. Instructions are supplied for DIY self assembly.

Prices fixed until Wednesday 13th November.

Flexible and adjustable design

  • Adjustable ridge height - the roof pitch and therefore the ridge height is variable. Ideally the roof pitch should be at least 10 degrees up to a maximum of 15 degrees. These are not absolute limits and assembly is possible with a slightly lower or higher roof pitch if required.
  • Adjustable eaves height - the eaves height can be reduced by cutting the posts, which reduces the ridge height by the same amount
  • Adjustable post positions - the cantilevered design allows the posts to be moved away from the corners if required to avoid an obstruction.
  • Adjustable eaves beam position - the main eaves support beam can be set back from the front if required to avoid an obstruction
  • The posts can be set in from each corner by between 300mm and 450mm to each side
  • The eaves beam can be set back from the front by between 200mm and 700mm

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.

SEALING A CARPORT AGAINST THE WALL: Although it is not essential, for best results a carport should be sealed against the host wall. There are various ways of doing this depending on the wall surface. The easiest way is a simple silicone seal but this will require the most maintenance. Adhesive flashing is a more permanent solution but it will also require occasional maintenance. The best seal is lead flashing dressed into the existing mortar, which requires little or no maintenance. However, it is the most expensive option and normally requires a plumber. With no seal at all, a carport still provides a waterproof canopy and although the walls may be damp on occasion this may not be a problem. Carports are normally supplied with no flashing or sealant included due to the various different options available to suit different sites and individual requirements.
