What are the benefits of sinking the canopy legs?

There are many benefits to sinking the canopy legs. Not all canopy systems use this technique, but it is the only way to ensure longevity. Rosalind is a LuMac customer who had a patio area already down when she ordered her canopy. Our skilled fitting team lifted the relevant slabs to allow the legs to be set into footings.

Footings

The footing has been designed by structural engineers to have the correct depth and width for the 75mm squared leg support. The footing has a thin layer of concrete to make a level base for the leg, which is then backfilled. This method of sinking the canopy legs means they have a substantial surround, and can handle all weather conditions. The slabs can then be fitted back around the legs once set, making a neat finish.

The finished result:

White canopy with legs sunk into footings.

Rosalind kindly sent us this review:

It would be great to mention your fitting service with Dave. I only found out about your fitting service when I looked at the reviews on your site.
I had advertised for someone DIW to fit the canopy and the price was more than Dave had quoted for, and in the end the guy asked if the instructions were included in the pack.
Dave was most experienced with erecting the canopies. From start to finish, he knew what was needed and they worked fantastically .
If any of my neighbours comment on our canopy I will certainly direct them to your site and service.”
