Wrought iron door canopies in UK above side doors with bay trees

November is last month of Autumn and such, heralds in the long dark nights together with the wind and rain conspiring to soak us and our doorways…..well why not be prepared? Now’s the time to invest in a beautiful and practical zinc galvanized door canopy for your front door, back door and patio doors.

Our high quality, solid steel door canopies are made by us in Bath, Somerset. We specialise in several designs and finishes and can also make to measure. As designers and manufacturers we take great care to ensure that every detail is well resolved and that the canopy is made to a very high standard of workmanship. All door canopies are dipped in zinc to provide the rust resistant surface necessary to withstand the inclement British weather.

Bespoke Door Canopy Designs

Many of you may have doorways that have arched or elliptical fanlights that need sympathetic door canopy designs to follow the curve. Other doorways may have wall lights above them or bells and lamps on either side, making our standard door canopy designs unsuitable. Some doorways have very little or no wall above them, for example barn conversions or more contemporary extensions to the main house. We can work around all of these situations and can offer a bespoke canopy to suit your doorway – all we need is an image and some key dimensions. Between, us, we can then resolve the design  to ensure that it suits your requirement – and no its’ not going to cost the earth – we only pass on the minimum amount of cost for the additional time needed to design and set up a one-off product.

Authentic Galvanized Zinc Finish

Once the door canopy or porch canopy design is resolved, we then make it in our workshops before sending it to be hot dip zinc galvanized to conform to the high British & European Standard BS EN ISO 1461. This process ensures that mild steel is given the highest rust-resistant protections, before we then prime and paint your canopy with a high quality mat paint, or prepare it for the Aged zinc galvanized finish which looks and weathers over time just like lead.
