One of our favourite features of Evolution canopy is the integrated guttering system. The eaves beam, which supports the glazing bars at the low end, acts as a box gutter to collect rainwater from the roof, and transfer it into the support posts. The support post act as downpipes, and allows rainwater to exit through the post feet.

1. Alternative roof pitch of 10°, 15° or 20°, and longer support posts, if a higher eaves height is required, should be requested immediately after placing order.
2. Choice of polycarbonate sheet tint depends largely on what is important to you. Things to consider include light, heat and appearance, as some people don't like the dark appearance of bronze, or the likelihood of seeing resting leaves and debris through clear. Consider that clear maximises use of available light, so can be handy when north facing. Clear and opal will utilise morning sun to build-up heat for the rest of the day. Bronze and opal reduces afternoon heat build-up under west facing roofs.
Fitting the Evolution Canopy Carport Kit
The following summarises the simple process, and the comprehensive Fitting Instructions supplied with kit will fill in any gaps.
- Prepare the Eaves Beam - First fit and seal End Caps, then drill a hole in position with chosen Support Post for water outlet, and cover with Leaf Guard. Position Support Posts on underside of the Eaves Beam and screw fix to front and back face.
- Fit the Wall Plate - Drill masonry fixing pilot holes through the Wall Plate, and apply a bead of silicone applied along the back, before it is raised to position and fixed using supplied masonry screws.
- Fix a Gable Bar to left and right, between Wall Plate and free-standing Eaves Beam; using just one fixing on either end to allow later adjustment.
- Fit a plastic Sheet End Closures centrally to either end of the 16mm Polycarbonate Sheets.
- Fit first 16mm Polycarbonate Sheet into Gable Bar, and then fit a standard Glazing Bar to the opposite edge of the sheet, and engage in Wall Plate. Repeat this along the length, and temporarily remove the Gable Bar, to allow the last Glazing Bar to be fitted. Once all bars are fitted, the roof can be squared, so that the bars are 90° from the host wall, and the Eaves Beam is parallel with the Wall Plate. Once square, secure thoroughly with second fixing on each bar end.
- Support Posts can now be secured to a concrete base with bolts through their feet. Gutter level can be achieved by raising or lowering the posts over the feet, and securing post and foot together with screws.
- The Sheet End Closure can be sealed to roof sheet, with a bead of silicone on the leading edge. Sheet Edge Trim can now be positioned over the ends of the Glazing Bars, then screwed into place and sealed.
Tools required: Power Drill/Driver, HSS Drill Bits (3mm/7mm/8mm), Masonry Bits (6mm/8mm), Silicone Gun, Spirit level, Mallet, and Step Ladders.
