Why install a door canopy?

A door canopy or canopy not only protects you and your fellow residents, it also reduces the impact of rain, wind and snow on your front door. If you install a door canopy above the door, but also on both sides of the door, it will provide extra protection against cold wind blowing into your entrance.

A door canopy also gives a luxurious look to your house, increasing the value of your home.

Replacing the panel of a door canopy

If you already have a door canopy, but it’s broken. You can easily replace it yourself. Transparent acrylic or polycarbonate is a very suitable replacement. With acrylic, choose the moulded form: it is nice and clear and has less chance of cracking while working on it, such as drilling or bending. Incidentally, you can simply include pre-drilled screw holes in your order.

If you want to replace a bent sheet door canopy, you can bend polycarbonate or acrylic yourself. Choose a thickness of 4 mm for this.

How do you replace the sheet of your door canopy?


  1. Step 1

    Dismantle the sheet that is currently in place. Try to keep it in one piece, to make it easier to measure later.

  2. Step 2

    Measure and note the dimensions and thickness of the sheet. Also measure where you need the screw holes.

  3. Step 3

    Order a sheet in the same size and thickness. Also specify where the screw holes should go in the order module.

  4. Step 4

    After receiving your fast delivery, mount the new sheet in place of the old one.

Do not overtighten screws and use rubber washers when screwing. Acrylic and polycarbonate shrink and expand with changes in temperature. So make sure the sheet has some room to move, to avoid tension and cracks.

Suitable materials

Acrylic and polycarbonate are both sturdy, lightweight and beautifully transparent. Acrylic is also available in opal white and tinted colours. Polycarbonate also comes in opal white and tinted brown and grey. Polycarbonate is even sturdier than acrylic; it is also impact resistant. Both materials will never shatter into a thousand pieces like glass can.

How do you order a customised door canopy?

Think about whether you are going to use the frame of your old door canopy and just replace the sheet or make a new door canopy yourself. If replacing: measure the dimensions of the old panel and order a new panel in the same matching size. For a new door canopy, decide in advance how you will attach it, so that you can include the drill holes and any cut-outs in the order module.

Enter the length, width and drill holes in the order module. You will immediately see the price. You pay per m2 so that there is no wastage. Even if you need a cut-out, e.g. for a rain pipe, you can include it here.

Strange or difficult shapes are also possible, such as a semi-circle, for above your door. Simple shapes can be ordered in the order module. For very special shapes, upload a DXF file with the dimensions when ordering. View our tutorial about how to create your own DXF file. Please note our drawing rules.


The thicker, the sturdier your plastic canopy. For acrylic, we recommend a minimum thickness of 5 mm. For polycarbonate, you need a minimum thickness of 4 mm. This will ensure that your door canopy is strong enough for wind, rain and hail. Always make sure that you fasten it properly.
