Canopy over wood store

Canopy over wood store

Our customer used this canopy over their wood store to enhance their outside space. As the canopy covers two sets of patio doors the Clear as Glass system works beautifully to let in all light.

The canopy has been set under block paving, by lifting the individual blocks and then re-laying them around the leg. This gives a very neat finish with the legs appearing to disappear under the paving. Setting the legs this way ensures maximum stability.

Canopy with Top Triangle

Canopy with Top Triangle

Infills can be added once your canopy is fitted to provide even more shade and protection. This customer added a top triangle to fill the gap between the canopy and extension. Here is what they had to say about the finished result:


“Yesterdays installation went really well, the design solution Dave suggested works perfectly and the whole product looks brilliant, Dave and Darryl worked non stop in awkward weather conditions and took all packaging and rubble away with them, I cannot recommend them highly enough they are a top class team supporting a top class product.”

Best regards

Clear as Glass

So worth waiting for!

This was what Rosalind had to say about her LuMac canopy. Featuring our white frames and Clear as Glass roofing system and the finished result looks brilliant.

This build shows how the legs can be sunk into footings by lifting existing slabs and creating a concrete base below. Because the slabs can then be fitted back around the leg it creates a very neat finish.

Patio canopy

Patio canopy

This patio canopy creates a great outside living space. To be enjoyed in any weather, including this moment which has captured the dappled light coming through.

garden canopy
Sunset under the canopy

This canopy features our White frame finish and the 16mm polycarbonate roofing in Opal. As the photo shows this roof type has a white finish which lets the light in, but also allows for privacy. Our lovely customer also opted to use our fitting service. This is what they had to say about the experience:

I am very pleased with the LuMac canopy and would definitely recommend this company to my friends. Everything went as planned from placing the order with Claire,  to the delivery and installation. Dave and his colleague were on time and did a very neat installation. Easy process from start to finish and excellent value for money. Couldn’t be happier. 

As this customer had an existing patio area the team lifted the slabs to sink the legs into concrete footings, then cut them back around. This process ensures the stability of the frame in all weather conditions because it is the strongest base. The end result is seamless with the legs seeming to disappear under ground neatly.

If you would like a quote to cover your outside living space, contact us today. Because we can supply and fit we can help with the whole process. All of the canopies are made to measure because we want to help everyone achieve the perfect garden canopy.

Garden canopy with lighting

Canopy with lighting

This photo of the Lean To canopy with lighting was sent in by our happy customer Helen, from Hertfordshire.

Here is what she said about her experience with LuMac:

We absolutely love our canopy. It’s been up since last April and all summer we left our garden table out under it, so we could sit out even in the rain. It meant we have another room, more entertainment space and enjoy our garden much more often. 

During the winter we have moved our garden furniture under it, so it’s all protected from the bad weather. We’ve added solar panelled lights which come on every day. 

The instructions and equipment were perfect and we couldn’t be happier with it! 

Our canopy systems’ simplicity is a great match for any property style. They can also be personalised for your space to create a beautiful area for relaxing or entertaining. As Helen describes, the canopy can provide year round protection for your outside furniture, and even allow you to sit out and enjoy the rain!

If you would like a non obligation quote simply measure the length and projection size and we help with the rest. You could be sitting out under your canopy with lighting before you know it. Please click here for more example photos: https://lumaccanopies.co.uk/about-us/canopies-carports-reviews/

Grey Canopy from LuMac

This photo of the grey canopy from LuMac was sent in to us by a happy customer from Doncaster. Because the sleek design has been kept minimal the frame can be added to, in this case with fencing panels.

Perfect as a carport or canopy

At LuMac we are proud of the versatility of our canopy systems. They can be used as carports, garden canopies, to cover a walkway or even a hot tub!

The frames can be supplied in a White, Brown or this Grey finish so there is a colour to suit every home. The roofing options are 16mm polycarbonate as shown in this example, or our amazing Clear as Glass option shown below.

How to measure for your grey canopy from LuMac?

To start with all that is needed is the length and projection you would like your canopy to be. Therefore the measuring process is simple, as you can mark out on the ground the rectangle shape you would like to cover. We can then provide a quote and help you with any other questions such as the height. The height of the canopy is flexible, this is explained further here: https://lumaccanopies.co.uk/LuMacWallplateHeightExplained.pdf.

The photo below shows the measurements you will need to start your journey to a LuMac canopy:

Canopy Competition Runner Up

Canopy Competition Runner Up

Here is our canopy competition runner up, David! As we had so many fantastic entries for our competition we decided to create a runner up category. This canopy was worked on by the whole team to make sure the project worked out exactly as the customer had imagined it. Because the photo’s really do speak for themselves with this example, here is the finished result:


Canopy competition runner up, Grey canopy

Grey with Clear as glass

This canopy is our Lean To style which attaches to the wall, and features the Anthracite grey finish on the aluminium framework. The panels are our ‘Clear as Glass’ range which are 6mm plate polycarbonate. Because this material has the appearance of glass but with the benefit of being much stronger and lighter, as a result it is the perfect solution for this type of structure.

Side and front Infills

The side and front infills can be added to any LuMac lean to. Just a few simple measurements are needed for us to make them. In this case the customer sourced and added a door to complete the look. If you would like to know more about the side and front infills click here.

Can be used all year round

This stunning image taken in the evening light shows the versatility of our canopy system, as the LuMac canopy can be used to create a usable outside space in any weather. Imagine sitting with your evening cup and tea and book in this space – bliss.
