The SDL Acubis glass canopy turns heads again: the jury of the Home & Trend Awards crowned the new canopy a winner in two categories – Best of the Best and Trend Product of the Year 2018/19.

Double award for SDL Acubis glass canopy

A flat glass canopy for design purists

The SDL Acubis glass canopy can either be connected to a house or assembled as a free-standing structure. The straight lines of the aluminium profile system give the canopy a classic elegance – the perfect match for its cubic architecture.

With a height of just 253 mm, the all-round facing is incredibly thin. Combined with the slim beams, this lets in plenty of light. Even with the optional awning cartridge for vertical shade, the facing height remains a subtle 36 cm.


Perfect weather protection

Despite the gentle roof pitch of just two degrees, the SDL Acubis provides safe and controlled water drainage. This is achieved using built-in, concealed gutters and downpipes. For projects with strict statics requirements, such as large roof areas or increased snow loads, the SDL Acubis can be reinforced with a steel insert. The new product also appeals thanks to its easy assembly, which requires just a flat, one-piece wall joint. The SDL Acubis is equipped with laminated safety glass (LSG), which is available in thicknesses of 8 mm, 10 mm or 12 mm depending on the individual requirements.


Highly convertible

The SDL Acubis glass canopy can be extended to create a glass house: simply add vertical glazing, with optional sliding or slide-and-turn elements, or a bi-folding  door. All the glazing options can be opened over a large area to create an accessible passageway.

With the slide-and-turn system, the individual glass elements can be pushed to the side, swung open and tucked away in a small panel bundle on either the inside or the outside. The bi-folding doors also save space, folding together like an accordion.

Combining the canopy with this glazing to protect against wind and weather offers a whole new quality of outdoor life – all year round.


Your own personalised shady spot

On sunny days, the glass house can be shaded on every side: custom awnings can be added to both the canopy and the side areas. Dimmable LED lights in the beams and the all-round facing provide ambient lighting for the evenings.
