What is the Utemaster Centurion Canopy?
Traditionally, ute canopies are constructed with fibreglass or ABS plastic. The Utemaster Centurion Canopy is constructed with Aluminium which gives it greater strength.
Because it is so strong, we can maximise access through full-width doors without compromising on the structural integrity of the canopy.
This product has been designed and manufactured in New Zealand at Utemaster's state of the art facility and focuses on three key features: Access, Strength & Security.
The most accessible canopy in the world
Finding it hard to reach your tools and equipment through small canopy windows?
Wasting time and feel frustrated when trying to access your gear?
The Utemaster Centurion Canopy features full-width doors that give you access to your gear the whole way down each side. There is no obstruction along the top edge of your TUB meaning you can easily reach over and pull your gear out through the side door opening.
We were recently asked: “What are they like keeping the rain out when open ???? the worst part of my canopy is all the water tracks straight inside with wings open…”
That's so frustrating! We can only imagine how many tradespeople and recreationists out their struggle with this over the winter periods. Not only does it damage your gear inside, but it also delays progress on a job site.
We thought we'd share a video of the Utemaster Aluminium Canopy being water-tested during the design/ development phase a few months back - as you can see the built-in rain channels send any water landing on the canopy away for the inside of your tub.
Losing your tools and equipment due to a break-in is not only lost money - this can also have an impact on the time and productivity of the job you are working on. Concealed security latches mean each door is locked on both sides, making it hard to pry open.
Heavy Duty Construction
The Aluminium construction allows this canopy to carry much heavier loads than you ever could on a fibreglass or ABS canopy.
This means you can stack it with all your gear to get stuff done and enjoy life's adventures without having to worry about it cracking or damaging your wellside.
With a fibreglass canopy it is hard to mount accessories such as spotlights, roof trays or anything that requires drilling into the fibreglass. This can also compromise the water-tightness and weaken the construction.
With the Utemaster Canopy being aluminium you can easily retro-fit any accessory to the body without having to worry about the structural integrity and it allows you to fully customise your setup.
Optional Cantilever Rack
The Cantilever Rack is seriously useful and robust and is an optional extra for the aluminium canopy.
All utes are designed to flex in between the tub and the cab. This can be problematic for roof racks that are mounted to both the cab and the canopy because it can cause damage while the flex occurs.
Because the Aluminium Canopy is so strong, which extends over the cab making it completely independent and eliminates the risk of damage to the cab! The Cantilever Rack is seriously useful and robust and is an optional extra for the Aluminium Canopy.
Rated at 200kg.

Looking at upgrading your ute in the near future? Have you ever tried re-selling a ute after removing a fibreglass to ABS plastic Canopy?
The Centurion Aluminium Canopy is fixed to the wellside using existing factory mounting holes. This means no damage to the wellside of your ute when the canopy is removed.
