Structural shapes for patio canopies

The perfect patio canopy for your home

The colour and size of a patio canopy can be perfectly adapted to your patio and the look of your house. Different structural shapes are available. A patio canopy protects you against all weather and can be adapted to your floor plan. Supports, struts and bars give the patio the necessary stability, so that different span widths and depths can be designed. In this way, individual canopy solutions can also be created around corners, or with roof offsets. As it is robust, strong, easy to clean and low-maintenance, the material aluminium is particularly suitable for patio canopies.

Which structural shapes can be created with heroal patio canopies?

heroal patio canopies can be used to create a wide range of designs that can be flexibly adapted to your specific wishes and requirements. This creates a harmonious overall appearance that blends in perfectly with the architecture of your home. With heroal solutions, various aesthetic solutions can be easily created, such as mono-pitch roofs with different span widths without centre supports, or gable roofs which can be integrated into the gable end of your house.

Mono-pitch or lean-to roof

The mono-pitch roof is the classic, simplest and most commonly used design for patio canopies. The canopy surface adjoins the house. Rainwater is automatically drained away from the house via a slope. Overall, this design is modern, simple and unobtrusive in appearance. The mono-pitch roof can be designed in different variations. It can also be built around the corner of a house. A mono-pitch roof can be designed and created with the heroal CR and heroal OR patio canopy systems. The heroal OR system provides for patio canopies in a cubic design, with span widths of more than 7 m without a centre support. With heroal CR, a wide range of variations of the mono-pitch roof can be created, with a maximum span width of 5 m without the need for an additional centre support.

Gable roof

The structural shape of the heroal CR offers extreme flexibility, so that even gable roofs can be designed. A gable roof consists of two sections whose upper horizontal edges meet to form its ridge. The slope of the sections on both sides creates a pleasant feeling of space. The integration of a gable roof on the gable end of the house creates appealing looks.
