These canopies offer sturdy protection and convenience while allowing your bakkie to retain its clean aesthetic. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why you should consider getting yourself a Sammitr Steel Canopy.


What sets Sammitr Steel Canopies apart from other bakkie canopies?

With more than 5 decades of expertise in the automotive sector, Sammitr (SMM), a Tier 1 provider of body panels for different vehicle OEMs, is the sole manufacturer of pressed steel canopies in the world. These canopies are produced using the same manufacturing techniques and materials that have been made standard in the automotive sector. 

SMM canopies start out as 0.8mm galvanized steel before being pressed and robotically welded together to provide maximum strength and durability. The canopies then undergo a rigorous treatment process that prevents rusting before being colour-coded for a high quality finish. The final result is a canopy that’s built as tough, robust and finished as the rest of your bakkie.

Each Sammitr steel canopy is meticulously tested before leaving the factory to make certain that you’re getting the very best pressed steel canopy on the market. SMM canopies are famous for their strength, durability, security, contemporary styling and eco friendliness.
