A stylish carport like the 12 x 16 Palram Arcadia Alpine 5000 Carport in grey makes life easier for vehicle owners when it comes to protecting them from the prolonged effects of exposure to damaging weather like rain, hail, or snow. Thin yet robust twin-wall polycarbonate panels also provide a degree of separation between your vehicle and the night sky, vastly reducing the chance of frosted windscreens that are slow and irritating to clear before travel. This carport looks the part outside any home, with its restrained yet sharp grey powder-coated finish and bronze-tinted glazing.


Palram has woven a range of brilliant features together to produce an elegant but eminently usable driveway canopy, in the 12 x 16 (3.59m x 5.02m) Palram Arcadia Alpine 5000 Carport Grey. Starting from the ground up, six sturdy aluminium legs provide all the support needed for the structure, with anchoring foot pads to secure the 3.15" x 3.15" poles to a flat and stable surface such as concrete.

The remaining structure utilises an identical powder-coated aluminium, which is strong and rust-free, and secured with galvanised steel connecting parts. This frame holds tinted twin-wall polycarbonate glazing, a material that is virtually impossible to shatter and will provide all the protection needed for parked vehicles. It is very easy to wipe clean and keeps its colour and transparency for many years.

Roughly a quarter of sunlight is transmitted through these panels, giving the polycarbonate an attractive semi-transparent vibrancy under the sun and protecting the parked car from sun damage or overheating. On the other hand, this coverage will insulate your car in frosty weather and greatly reduce the likelihood of a frosted windscreen. Anyone who wants to save precious time and energy on winter mornings will greatly appreciate this aspect of the design.

Another feature that improves the experience of owning this carport is the built-in guttering system, which manages rainfall by channelling it to gutter heads. Guttering is crucial when controlling the flow of water, and attaching a water butt or drainage system is made easy through its inclusion.


Palram develops accessories to give their products an extra level of sophistication and use depending on the customer's specific needs, as is the case with the 12 x 14 Palram Arcadia Alpine 5000 Carport Grey. At elbec, we recommend adding the Lighting System developed by Palram, which is a low heat light source for illuminating your carport. The item is especially useful for seeing the way along your garden path on late night returns to your home. See more details and browse the full range of accessories when you order.


This model comes with a 10-year limited warranty from Palram for no extra cost, quelling any concerns you might have about the lasting condition of the carport in future years. Be sure to read the details of this agreement prior to purchase.
