The Ullswater provides an entirely new way to build a free-standing canopy using a unique corner structure for ultimate strength and large self-supporting spans. It has a maximum width of up to 6 m and an unlimited length.

Due to its unlimited length and large width, this canopy makes a unique revolutionary alternative to the basic wall mounted canopy. It is ideal for many environments including schools for use as play canopies and outdoor classrooms, restaurants and pubs for use as outside dining areas and parks and recreational grounds as waiting shelters and covered picnic areas. The canopy has a life expectancy of 25 years.
