Joburg Canopy Centre

There is only one canopy that is safe, secure and strong. With an ever increasing range of models, styles and options, selecting the right canopy can be just as challenging as choosing the vehicle itself. Only Sammitr (SMM) Steel canopies provide maximum strength, durability, security and the benefit of being environmentally friendly.

With over 50 years of experience in the automotive industry, SMM, a Tier 1 supplier of body panels to various OEMs, is the only producer of pressed steel canopies in the world, which are manufactured using the same material and production techniques employed by the automotive industry.

SMM canopies are pressed from 0.8mm galvanised steel and robotically welded together for maximum strength and durability. The canopies then go through a rigorous anti-rust treatment and are colour-coded using baked painting procedures for a highquality smooth finish. The end result is a canopy that is built as tough and finished as well as the rest of your prized vehicle.

Each canopy is thoroughly tested before leaving the factory to ensure that you are getting the best steel canopy on the market. SMM canopies are renowned for their strength, durability, safety, modern styling and environmental friendliness.

The models on offer are the V2 Series, starting from R26 500 incl. VAT, and the TL1 Series, starting from R29 000 incl. VAT.
