As a general guide, for light lorries, the height of the canopy structure must not exceed 1.35 times the height of the lorry's cabin when measured from the road surface. This is to ensure that the stability of the vehicle is not compromised. Should the height of the canopy structure exceed the guidelines, a Professional Engineer’s (PE) certification will be required. As for heavy lorries, the height of the canopy structure must not exceed 3.2 metres when measured from the road surface (regardless of the height of the lorry's cabin). Similarly, a PE certification would be required if the height of the canopy structure exceeds the guidelines.
Lorry owners who wish to install customised canopy designs may liaise with their workshops and send the proposed design of the canopy structure/design and installation details to the Vehicle Engineering Division of the LTA for specific advice.
