Patio Covers

Create a beautiful living space with our weatherproof, waterproof and maintenance-free patio covers and canopies here at The Plastic People. 

These modern covers can also be used as maintenance free roofing solutions for other purposes, such as carport or sun lounge areas, so you can enjoy your outdoors whatever the weather. 

Stylishly crafted yet sturdy, these patio covers are adjustable so they fit all spaces and sizes. This makes them a valuable addition to your outside living space - all year round. 

Take a look at our pictures to get a more visual feel for how our patio covers could add style and functionality to your garden. 


What are patio covers?

Patio covers (sometimes referred to as patio canopies) are plastic roofing panels fitted above a patio or outdoor area. 

Essentially, they’re exactly what they say on the tin - although they're not necessarily always used to cover patios. 

As mentioned above, one of the best things about patio roof systems is that they are multi-functional - and can be used for carports or outside living space areas to provide shade from the sun.

There are also a range of other uses, but they usually always follow the same instructions for installation and assembly - which is a safe, secure and straightforward process. 

This basically consists of the panel itself and an aluminium frame to support it. This is then bolted to an exterior wall, with the ground posts sealed to the floor to secure the structure. 

It’s as simple as that. 


Different patio covers

We offer two high-quality models of patio cover which both offer fantastic value. 

The Sierra patio cover comes with 6mm roofing panels and is available in two different colours (white and grey) and various sizes. 

The lightweight canvas is easy to assemble and adds an additional welcoming feel to your patio area - especially on sunny days. 

Then there’s the Olympia patio cover which is also available in white or grey depending on personal preference. This is made from thicker, 16mmm polycarbonate roofing panels. 

This makes for a more robust patio cover, with the same low-maintenance 100% UV protected multiwall polycarbonate material. 

It depends on your personal preference - but regardless of which patio cover you choose, you’re sure to benefit from a long-lasting patio roofing solution for years to come. 

The size of your patio cover will obviously depend on the amount of space you have to work with in order to accomodate outdoor furniture or fully cover a vehicle (if it’s a carport). Just bear in mind the height at which you addeble the cover. 

The taller the cover, the less protection it will provide. However, you don’t want the area to feel cramped by a low patio cover, either. 

What are the benefits of our patio covers? 

With our range of patio covers, we can guarantee that you won’t need to worry about the weather getting between you and your outdoor lifestyle. 

Here are some of the main benefits to installing an outdoor patio cover to complement your outdoor areas: 

Sizes for all spaces

Our patio covers are suitable for most patio spaces. They are available in both 2m and 3m widths, as well as three different lengths - so you can be sure to find a size that works for your patio area. 

Virtually unbreakable with 100% UV protection

Our patio covers are made from durable multiwall polycarbonate roof panels and a heavy duty, corrosion-resistant aluminium frame. This type of polycarbonate roof provides complete UV blockage - so you can rest assured that you’re fully protected from the sun. Together with the rust-free aluminium structure, you have a low-maintenance patio cover that’s guaranteed to last a long time. 

Safe, quick and easy DIY assembly

Our patio covers are easy to assemble. In fact, they require absolutely no experience, no special skills and no special tools to put it together. Profiles are ready to assemble with pre-drilled holes and roof panels ready to go - with a straightforward slide-in installation.
