Please take care to look after the components as you put them up and not to scratch them on any rough surfaces. Take your time, follow the basic steps and you will have it up and looking fantastic in no time at all. We suggest it is a 2 person job when fixing the canopies in place

How to fit your Brise Soleil canopy

 Tape measure diagram



  • Find the centre point of the doors/window and make a light pencil mark across the wall above the the top of the door/window frame at the desired height for the canopy.

  • Measure the width of the canopy section and add a couple of milllimeters to allow for installation.

  • Mark these measurements onto the external surface.

  • Fit all brackets to wall using suitable bolts.

  • Offer the cassette up inbetween the brackets and loosely fit using the supplied bolts.

  • You will need to push the bolts back to allow for the next canopy to be slotted into place.

  • Make sure the canopy is supported at this stage.

  • Bolt through with the fixing bolts.

  • If you have the flying design, fit the two ends.

  • Tighten each fixing in turn, checking cassette is straight and level.
