The estimated price was well received, the next step was for us to conduct a site survey conduct a site survey. During the survey, our surveyor discussed every aspect of the project with Dan and the client. The client loved the look of the Europort – modern, contemporary with classy looks… The scans taken on site allowed us to create the 3D visual for Dan and the client, showing his canopy in situ and as it would be installed.
The design was fluid and changed a few times, essentially once the client saw the space he wanted to add to it. We calculated the final price and the client was happy to proceed.
Our design engineers quickly began with the production CAD drawings. Dan requested for the canopy structure to be powder-coated in RAL 7016 Anthracite Grey fine textured finish. Anthracite Grey is our most popular colour choice amongst our customers and it was also the colour for the majority of the rest of the property.
We duplex coat our super strong steel carports, which means they last a long, long time. What’s a duplex coat? First we complete all of the fabrication, drilling and welding and then we perform a trial build in one of our canopy production halls. Once we are happy with the build it is dismantled and the whole structure, every steel section is hot dip galvanised. Following the galvanising process it is prepared for powder coating where we coat the structure in 80 microns of fine textured powder before baking in the ovens….just check out the finish on that steel structure.
Furthermore, Dan and the client asked for the roof to be glazed in Opal polycarbonate. As you can see from the video above, this combination works very well and Opal polycarbonate is the most effective at hiding debris from surrounding trees, whilst still reflecting light.
Once the canopy had been manufactured, our project manager arranged a suitable date for the carport to be delivered and erected.
The structure was fully installed in just 4 days! A rapid install by our fitters, but still installed and finished to a very high standard. This Europort carport fits like a glove, maximising the space on the drive. The client couldn’t be happier with his brand new Kappion Canopy!
