Multi-Wall Polycarbonate Canopy

Building canopies with multi-wall polycarbonate and one of our structural systems.

Our polycarbonate canopies offer an attractive and strong cover to your building entrance.



Features and benefits of our multi-wall polycarbonate

  • Multi-wall sheets are translucent.  They allow light to pass through but restrict vision
  • Canopies using multi-wall sheets are usually less expensive
  • Multi-wall sheets are available in many thicknesses. The thicker the sheets are, the wider the bays can be
  • Multi-wall sheets are more readily available than proprietary systems
  • Select from clear, opal/white, bronze, gray, blue, or green colors
  • Standard sheet size is 3′, 4′, 5′ wide by 10′ length
  • Since the panels are translucent they tend to dirt and scratches
  • 10-year manufacturers warranty on panels
  • UV-resistant coating in one size
  • Framing systems are available in white and bronze paint, and clear or dark bronze anodized
  • Matching edge trim is available.
  • Pressure caps are applied so there are no exposed screws

Optional upgrades

  • Custom color frames for larger orders
  • UV coatings on both sides
  • Reflective coatings
