  • Possible options:LED lighting, water-management solutions, charging stations, supports for inverters
  • Hot-dipped galvanised steel structure:in accordance with the DIN EN ISO 1461 standard
  • Models:Solo 6, Solo 4, Duo 12, Duo 6
  • Standards:
    • EN 1993 1: 2005/A1/2014
    • EN 1991 -1


While the term ‘canopy’ is regularly used to refer to an awning in English, in French, the term ‘canopée’ is generally used to refer to the tops of large trees. Canopies are composed of leaves that are directly exposed to solar radiation, which is similar in concept to the principle of our SigueSol® Canopy car ports.

The east-west structure of these car ports provides the following benefits:

  • The density of the panels on the roof is up to 30% higher, which allows a greater yield per metre squared
  • Up to 30% more power, thanks to the filling rate of the east-west assembly
  • Lower installation costs (more efficient use of mounting supports and equipment)

Why not combine efficiency, comfort and sustainability?


The Monopieu model can have a single or dual slope. This type of car port benefits from a central stake, which allows cars to face each other and save space as a result.

It is also easier to install this kind of structure because it is lighter. Indeed, concrete blocks are not required.


The Bipieu, or ‘double-post’, car port allows for larger distances between ground anchorings, making it perfect for larger structures.

W model

This lightweight, W-shaped structure is characterised by its versatility. In particular, it can be used for car ports for trucks.
