Nowhere to attach to, that’s Ok, a freestanding carport will fix that no problem.
Contact us, let’s find the Freestanding Carport best suited for your parking area.
A freestanding carport is fitted when your carport is detached from any existing structure and requires support on all sides.
A freestanding carport, sometimes referred to as standalone, is fitted when your carport is separate from any existing structure and requires posts on all sides. With no fixing to any other building, the installation requires enhanced foundations in order to ensure the carport is stable and cannot be damaged by high winds or heavy snowfall. In particular, this gives considerable lateral restraint to the superstructure, preventing the carport from folding up when wind creates a side loading.
We have considerable experience in the supply and installation of different freestanding carport designs. Our commercial division is regularly involved with installing much larger standalone and freestanding canopies, including three in the Bahamas, one of which is 503 square metres. These car canopies are regularly in the path of hurricanes and have been specified to cope with the resulting loads from 147mph winds. Although it is unlikely that you will need something quite so large for a domestic carport, you can be comfortable in the fact that the design process is the same no matter the size of the canopy or its location. Support posts require suitable foundations – which are designed by our structural engineering department – depending on the size of the canopy and geographical location. Many clients are surprised by the required size of the foundations and appreciate that this is a factor that could possibly have been underestimated.
Have look around your premises, see if there is an area which we can give you a free estimate for. This estimate will include wind and snow loading for your postcode. Very important for a freestanding carport.
