Our bolder Georgian ironwork was used to create this traditional style front door canopy, perfect for this new brick building, which has Georgian features such as the paneled front door with central brass door knob and external lighting. Completed with our rolled mild steel roof with traditional half round welt. In this instance the canopy sits slightly higher as the client did not want the canopy to obstruct the glass panel above the door.
This client was concerned about the potential of losing light through the fanlight going into the entrance hall. Therefore, it was decided that a glazed canopy roof would be the preferred option. We provided a glazing bar roof frame, which the client had glazed with an opaque glass – this choice meant the client retained the light, but will need less cleaning etc than a clear glass. The classic ring design was chosen for the decorative ironwork panels along with sun ray spandrels. The finished look being befitting of the period property on which it sits, whilst the mix of glass and steel provides a more contemporary feel.
The brief for this door canopy was to keep it as simple as possible to suit this modern property. A custom design was created, removing all infill pattern in the frieze panels and spandrels then reducing the depth of the frieze for a minimalistic look. This was finished in a white paint to tie in with the cottage style window and door frames – the result? A clean and simple metal canopy that looks as though it was built with the house! The client chose our lighter complete rolled roof to compliment the design, this was sealed with a proprietary sealant to give a clean line around the roof.
Regency Door Canopy
Our Regency Light canopy metalwork was chosen to create a more prominent entrance for this home. The decorative ironwork frieze panels are complimented by our sunray spandrel brackets and was finished off with our complete canopy roof option.
This particular entrance canopy is 2045mm wide and 640mm deep and as the wall it is affixed to is perfectly plumb the client chose to seal along the edge of the canopy roof with a proprietary sealant.
Traditional Front Door Canopy
Our popular Ring design was chosen for this metal front door canopy. Completed with matching ring spandrels and our rolled canopy roof option. This client chose to lead flash the canopy roof – the most durable option and added asked the builder installing the canopy to add a ceiling underneath which has been painted white.
This single door canopy is 1200mm wide and 640mm deep and the canopy roof is our typical height of 500mm.
Deco Style Door Canopy
Our Deco canopy ironwork design was chosen to create a modern door canopy for this recently refurbished home.
The decorative frieze panels of this elegant metalwork design features a simple cross punctuated by a small central flower and our unfussy sunray spandrels compliment the design superbly. Finished with our complete galvanised mild steel canopy roof which has been powder-coated in a heritage lead grey colour.
This particular wrought iron canopy is 1200mm wide and 880mm deep, framing and accentuating the entrance along with providing adequate space to stand beneath.
Double Width Over Door Canopy
Our Ring design canopy ironwork was chosen to offer protection from the elements over these double wood panelled doors. A popular classic, this metalwork canopy will never go out of fashion!
This canopy is our ‘typical’ single wide deeper depth (2045mm x 920mm) and has been finished with our complete canopy roof option which was subsequently flashed in with lead creating a robust seal.
Custom Entrance Canopy with Leaded Roof
A traditional style canopy was required for this converted paddock house.
The client opted for a simple, bespoke frieze design to match the frieze panel design chosen for a wrought iron porch on the same site (please see our porch projects page to view this). This was paired with our Roseleaf design spandrels featuring cast iron leaves are in keeping with the country charm of the property.
Our traditional roof frame was chosen to finish this cantilever canopy and has been lined and leaded, leaving the skelital metal frame exposed beneath. Though the vast majority of our canopies and porches do not have guttering however this particular client decided to add guttering to the ringbeam of the canopy roof.
French Scalloped Glass Canopy
The brief for this entrance canopy was a glazed ‘French’ style canopy. Fine Iron worked with the client to create a design that truley makes an entrance on this arts and crafts style home!
The design features traditional scroll style spandrels, decorative finials to the ridge of the canopy roof and has scallop edged glass panes. The client added a beautiful wrought iron laturn to compliment the design of this unique door canopy.
Decorative Wrought Iron Canopy
A beautiful Roseleaf wrought iron canopy was chosen for this entrance, the design complimenting the floral design in the side glass panels of the door.Our Roseleaf style is a more organic metalwork design featuring cast roseleaves with matching spandrels completing the look.
This door canopy is 2045mm and 950mm deep – plenty of space for a couple of guests to shelter underneath whilst they wait to be let in. The Zinc rolled roof is 400mm high – slightly shallower than our typical 500mm and has been sealed using a proprietary sealant.
Traditional Style Custom Canopy
One of our earlier projects this custom door canopy is similar in style to our Ring design however it has additional crosses to the centre and corner rings and vertical bars centrally creating a break between the rings. Finished with large sunray spandrels and our roof framwork which has been lined with tongue and groove boards, left exposed and covered in lead.
Side Entrance Canopy
One of our beautiful handcrafted metal door canopies is a perfect solution to offer cover over any entrance.
This client opted for a ring canopy to provide protection over the side, stable door of their home. Finished with a traditional style, curved canopy roof that will provide shelter for many years to come.

(We offer an array of roof options to give you the freedom to choose what you prefer. Our most cost-effective option would be our galvanised mild sheet roof (see below for more information about this type of roof).
We can provide a roof framework which can be lined and leaded by your local roofer/ builder – we do not line and lead ourselves as we are not a roofing company and there are many styles of lining and leading, which are best worked through with a professional in that trade.
We also offer a glazing bar roof, which allows you to have a partially or fully glazed roof, this can be straight or curved with hipped ends. We do not supply the glass as we are not a glazier, but do supply the mild steel sheet for infill panels if required.)
