Canopy Electrical Systems Overview

Canopies for a very longtime have essentially been a mobile storage solution.  Occasionally, they have been equipped with a dual battery system to provide power for an onboard chest refrigerator and canopy lights.  For remote work applications such as construction where power tools were required, a generator was stored in the canopy,

In recent years, battery powered tool suitable for the construction industry have been developed.  We now see battery power in a wide range of tools from construction to landscaping and beyond; all powered by batteries.  How do you keep your tool batteries at full charge while on the move?

At Tong Metal we have created four solutions to meet your canopy electrical needs.

Canopy Electrical Options

Additional Lighting
If you add additional doors to your canopy you may wish to consider the addition of additional lights. There are two options available:
  • 1,000 mm Orange/White LED Lights
  • 500 mm White LED Lights
Fixed Solar Panel (SP-EN100W or SP-EN200W) You have installed either the Canopy Dual Battery or Trade Power System and would like to add a matched fixed solar panel. The Enerdrive standalone, fixed solar panel is the solution. The panel can be installed onto the roof of your canopy and wired into you DC2DC charger.
Enerdrive 160W Folding Solar Panel Kit (SPF-EN160W) Enerdrive offers a great Folding Solar Panel Kit to keep your battery and 12 volt equipment charged from the sun. The 160 watt mono-crystalline folding panel kit (Im 8.61amps) is easy to stow and carry. When you arrive at your destination, unfold place in the sun and connect to your camper via the red Anderson solar connector.
Central Locking Security The introduction by Tong Metal of the 3-point locking system including framed doors significantly increased the security of the Tong tool boxes and canopies. This new design tool boxes and canopies make them highly suited to central locking.
Door Open Alarms Almost weekly we see a canopy returned with a damaged door; the door was left open when the vehicle was moved and the door has caught a tree, post, wall or similar object. We can replace damaged doors, but the best option is to prevent the accident from occurring. We now have available an “Open Door” alarm system. If you leave a canopy door open and turn on the vehicle ignition, a loud alarm will be triggered to remind you to stop and close the door.
