Do Archgola canopies keep out harmful UV rays?

All Archgola canopies are made from Australia’s premium polycarbonate, which provides 99.9% protection from harmful UV rays. There are also a number of tint options to choose from, which enable you to match to the colour of your home as well as decide how much light and UV you would like to let in.

Are Archgola made from steel or aluminium?

Archgolas are manufactured right here in Australia from top quality steel. This steel is then Quadpro powder coated to provide the best possible finish and protection from the elements, providing you with a premium product that is renowned for its superior steel strength, longevity and attractive finish.

Are Archgolas waterproof?

Archgolas provide year-round protection in all types of weather. To provide shelter from rain, we use flashings that make our canopies as watertight as possible.

Can Archgolas handle high winds?

Yes. Every canopy is structurally engineered and can be utilised in high to very high wind zones.

How long do Archgolas last?

Archgola frames are made from super strength, Australia sourced steel and the galvanised tubular. This makes them top quality and durable, plus they come with our 5 year warranty.

Do Archgolas prevent light from getting into the home?

Not at all. That is the benefit of the polycarbonate roofing. Depending on your choice of tint, you will have between 20 and 25% Light Transmission. We can provide advice and show you roofing samples to help you decide.

How long do Archgola's take to install?

How do I clean the roof of my Archgola?

We recommend you use a mild detergent and water with a soft sponge or brush and ensure the whole structure, including powder coated surfaces are thoroughly rinsed.
