Best Aluminium Canopy and Tray Combo for Ute

The Best Aluminium Canopy and Tray Combo for Your Ute 

Planning to make your ute more efficient? Nothing comes close to a custom-designed ute tray and canopy. There is almost an endless variety in terms of designs, materials and types. In fact, it could quickly get overwhelming for a newcomer to choose a tray and canopy combo. This blog post will explore various aspects of aluminium canopies and trays, and why you should get one today.

What are Aluminium Canopies?

Simply put, aluminium canopies are canopies made of aluminium that are used to safely and securely store equipment and materials. A variety of materials are used for making canopies including stainless steel, fibreglass as well as aluminium or a combination of these materials. Aluminium is a better choice as it is lightweight yet sturdy. In fact, it would be better to say that every material has its own advantages and limitations. However, this section is going to focus on aluminium canopies.

When it comes to choosing a canopy, the first thing you need to focus on is your specific requirements. If you need a lot of compartments for organising your tools and supplies, a custom-designed canopy is an ideal choice for you. On the other hand, a camping enthusiast would require a different design that has space for tents, cookware and other such things. In short, there are numerous standard designs available in the market at various price points to suit every need and every budget.

If you have the budget, a bespoke canopy is the best choice. A custom design will allow you to choose the style and layout you need without making any compromises.

What Are Aluminium Trays?

Similar to canopies, there are a variety of aluminium tray designs. It is important to keep in mind that the addition of a canopy and tray will add quite a bit of weight to your ute. As far as the tray designs are concerned, there are almost endless options. If you are a camping enthusiast, you can choose a design that makes organising things simple. 

If you want to carry your tools, you might want to consider a custom toolbox or if you love to take your dog with you, you could create and safe and comfortable section for them. In short, there are a lot of standard options but you should go for a customised design to make the best use of the available space.

Advantages of Aluminium Canopy

One of the biggest advantages of using aluminium for canopies and trays is that it is a lightweight material yet quite sturdy. Another big advantage of using aluminium is that it is not as prone to rusting as some of the other materials. Aluminium can be easily adapted to any kind of design. It does not add too much weight to the vehicle and allows you to carry quite a bit of load in the back of your ute. Also, it is relatively easy to take care of your aluminium canopy as it is easy to clean.
