Ute Canopies & Ute Trays + Accessories - Aluminium Canopies

Aluminium Canopies

There’s nothing standard about our standard aluminium canopies. Backed by a 2-year warranty, this high grade 2.5 millimetre aluminium checker plate canopy is built to keep up with your off-road and camping activity.

Set with a stainless steel piano hinge with a nylon cover for complete and worry-free dust and water protection, plus gas strut assisted doors, opening and closing this four-wheel-drive canopy is easy.

Plus, we’ve custom fabricated the design with a braced frame and door so that you’ll benefit from its extra strength. The carefully applied weather seal is fitted around the entirety of the door. This ensures that anything closed inside your canopy is completely protected from all the elements and weather.

While our aluminium canopies are versatile for a range of applications, we’re also able to custom fabricate a canopy solution just for you. All you need to do is get in touch with our team and let us know what you’re after. We’ll put together the perfect aluminium canopy to suit your particular vehicle.

Combined with our extensive range of canopy-related accessories, from lift off systems to roof racks and from jerry can holders to drop down ladders, you’ll find absolutely everything you need to get your canopy up, running and working just the way you want it to.

Ute Canopies & Ute Trays + Accessories - Ute Trays

Ute Trays

Utes are only as good as their ute trays… or that’s how the saying should go. From moving cargo to packing up your camping gear, there’s just about no limit to the utility and benefit of a robust, high quality and spacious ute tray.

Tourer Tray

The Tourer Tray is designed particularly for the camping enthusiast and people who like to travel and tour. Enjoy maximum storage space for your luggage and other equipment so you can take everything you need and want wherever you go.

Dunn and Watson – the best ute trays in Australia

Australian made

All of our ute trays are fabricated by our Aussie-operated team right here in Australia. Because we fabricate onsite, we can guarantee absolute quality control. When it comes to durability and functionality, our trays operate to the highest of national and international standards.

Quality materials

Using tough 3.0 millimetre and 4.0 millimetre aluminium, you can rest assured that your ute tray will be able to keep up with your touring or work no matter where you go. Long-lasting, highly resistant and super strong, there’s nothing like an aluminium tray as the perfect complementary addition to your canopy.

Why do we use high grade aluminium over steel?

  1. Aluminium is a lot lighter than steel without having to compromise on strength or durability. This means less weight for your vehicle to tow and less pressure on your ute.
  2. Another benefit of aluminium is its flexibility in fabrication. This allows our team to manufacture trays to tailored designs as part of our custom fabrication offering.
  3. Aluminium is highly corrosion resistant. As a tradie or tourer, you’re likely to see your fair share of rain, wet and moisture. That’s why we choose high grade aluminium over steel.
  4. Steel can create sparks in certain situations whereas aluminium is non-flammable and efficient thermal conductors.

Durable and high weight capacity

Our range of trays are designed and manufactured with practicality in mind. We test every fabrication to ensure that they are built to be durable and heavy duty no matter how much they’re used. Plus, with a high weight bearing capacity (able to hold up to 227 kilograms) you’ll enjoy all of the support you need.

Stainless steel fixtures

From high quality stainless steel strap hinges, to gudgeons and nylon bushes built for heavy use, there’s no doubt that our ute trays are the smart investment to make when you’re custom fitting out your ute.

Waterproof and dust proof

Thanks to the well designed pinchweld seal your ute tray is completely waterproof and dust proof. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that no matter where you go, the interior of your tray and its contents will be completely protected.

Rear facing hinge design

It’s not just about function, of course. Our black rear facing hinge is designed to look great and sit flush against the rest of the back of the tray. Functional, stylish and smart – it’s the best of everything!

Multiple coating options

Whether you prefer a powder coating or a spray paint coating, we can do it! All of our ute trays are available in both coating options. Of course, if you’re not sure which is right for you and your application, feel free to call the Dunn and Watson team today.
