- Stylish and practical
- Easy to erect
- Limit sunburn risk
The UPF 50+ rated fabric canopy will allow only 1/50th of the sun's UV rays to pass through, significantly reducing harmful exposure.
Perfect on patios and decking, this stylish canopy will allow you, your family and pets to spend time outside while limiting the risk of sunburn.
Easy to assemble, it measures a generous L250cm xW200cm xD200cm (8ft 2in x6ft 7in x6ft 7in) and is 200cm (6ft 7in) high.
Home assembly required.
Doubtful whether it is actually free standing as it needs external support from wall or fence. Very wobbly without.
Needs 2 person assembly.
It wasnt too difficult to erect though it does need two people and step ladders because the back edge is so high. The instructions were poor so educated guesswork was needed.
The biggest disappointment is that the cover it is not rain proof. Nor is it fixed down to the middle roof strut as Mrs Buckley reports so that it flaps about noisily in breezy conditions. Im going to try proofing the fabric by putting in the washing machine with some Nik-Wax proofer for outdoor wear and keep my fingers crossed that the fabric isnt damaged by the process.
So, not bad but fix the instructions, middle roof strut tie down and proofing and it would get 4 or 5 stars from me.
Two minor criticisms are the measurements described in the advert, although accurate, dont tell you the heights of the rear and front edges and there are two delivery charges to pay from Coopers direct but free delivery from Amazon at the same product price. This should be addressed.
Lastly, I cant see if replacement covers are available for this particular product as I would purchase one as a spare.
