Patio Canopies & Outdoor Glazed Canopy Installation - Ipswich, Suffolk & Essex
A verandah canopy was a must-have addition to any stylish Edwardian villa a century ago - and today, elegant yet robust aluminium patio canopies are seeing a resurgence in popularity on homes and commercial buildings throughout Suffolk and Essex.
Alfresco dining, relaxing on the patio terrace, sitting out and watching the sun go down - wouldn't it be great to enjoy even more outdoor living without plans being scuppered by a shower or the threat of not enough shade?
Perhaps you have a walkway between buildings which would be more serviceable with overhead protection? A hot tub which would become even more inviting of an off-season evening with a gazebo canopy? Or what about an outside play area where with the addition of a canopy roof, the kids could have fresh air and a field day all year round without even going on the grass?
Clear-roofed canopies with polycarbonate or glass panels and smart powder-coated aluminium frames are not just for porches and car ports - they can transform outdoor areas into really useable spaces.
Outside Canopies Ipswich - Add a touch to 'glass' to your patio or garden terrace
Lean-to, curved or customised to suit your outside canopy requirements, an outdoor glass or polycarbonate roofing system from Falcon Windows Ipswich can make an elegant addition to your home.
As well as smart outdoor canopies with clean sight line frames and contemporary styling suitable for more modern properties, car ports and commercial buildings, Falcon Windows are delighted to install more classically styled glazed canopies from our range of quality suppliers.
These days engineering technology means that aluminium frames can be designed to be robust enough to support double-glazed glass units without looking too 'chunky'.
They can also be designed to support high quality polycarbonate sheeting of different thicknesses, depending on the size and nature of the canopy and likely 'snowload' requirements.

Outdoor Canopy Installations Ipswich - Types of Canopy Styles
Falcon Windows Ipswich have been installing and supplying polycarbonate canopies throughout Suffolk and north Essex for decades, but recent years have seen a rise in their popularity in homes and particularly in the commercial and education sectors.
Outdoor covered play and learning areas at nurseries and primary schools; covered bike parks; smoking shelters for office or factory workers; gazebos to give family dining some certain gentle shade in the ever-hotter English summers; covered entrance ways to commercial premises or walk ways between buildings - great value polycarbonate canopies can have a range of practical uses.
Versatile and easily installed by Falcon Windows, a polycarbonate canopy can make a real difference to the usefulness of the space around you.
Our lean-to canopy at Falcon Windows' polycarbonate division, Ipswich Polycarbonates, is our most popular and traditional in our range of canopies. It provides a practical solution to most school applications such as learning, playing or waiting areas. The canopy has a mono-pitched roof shape and can either be a free-standing structure or it can be attached to a building (subject to site survey).
The lean-to polycarbonate canopy system is available in white powder-coated aluminium as standard with a choice of clear, opal or bronze tinted, shatterproof polycarbonate sheeting. It is also possible to have the frame powder-coated in a colour of your choice (eg. school colours) as an optional extra.
Highly adaptable, our lean-to polycarbonate canopy is a modular system which can be added to seamlessly should you wish to extend its length in the future.
At Falcon Windows, we are often approached for extensions to existing structures - once schools use their canopy and feel its benefit, they often wish to make these benefits available to more children and staff.
Cycle Shelters & Smoking Shelters
Smoking shelters in Ipswich and Suffolk have been increasingly requested in recent years due to the smoking ban inside public places. Falcon Windows has successfully installed smoking shelters in Felixstowe, Hadleigh and Stowmarket. These are easily installed and allow employees to smoke outside Suffolk business premises, in the fresh air without getting wet.
We also have a range of smoking and bicycle shelters which can either be attached to the wall or completely separate from your building. These are manufactured from powder-coated aluminium and are available in a range of styles. If you do not see the structure you are looking for here on our website please do get in touch - we are always receptive to suggestions and new ideas.
Curved Roof Canopies
The curved roof canopy from Falcon Windows is a heavy duty, commercial structure with an elegant arched roofline. It is ideal for covering large projections whilst maintaining a look that is aesthetically pleasing.
Ideally suited to outdoor eating areas, covered play areas or walkways, this structure can span unlimited lengths, whilst allowing projections of up to 6 metres without the need for intermediary legs.
The structural aluminium framework can be painted a colour of your choice to match in with the school's surroundings and the innovative bars used on the roof can accommodate different types of glazing material.
The soft and flowing lines of the curved roof canopy give a clean and contemporary look to a strong and highly practical structure.
At Falcon Windows polycarbonates, we can also create bespoke polycarbonate structures according to your needs using our own roofing system. We offer a full design service and can create gable, gazebo, hipped or L shaped - valley or hipped - canopies as appropriate.
