Rockalu was established in 2017 in France. The founders of the business were industry veterans and they set out to design and launch a range of high quality hard tops for overlanders and adventure users. French suppliers see a significant amount of interest in expedition travel into north Africa, and for the trails of Algeria and Morocco, heavy duty gear is vital.

Starting out with a clean sheet of paper, the designers at Rockalu sketched out a basic design. The product was to be built in aluminium, with a strong but lightweight frame. The intention was for the final product to be no heavier than a traditional fibreglass canopy but to be much stronger and more durable.

After an extensive design and testing process, the Rockalu Aluminium Canopy was born. This product was based around a modular frame with bull-wing doors at both sides and at the rear. These doors would open and close on high quality gas struts for ease of operation. The design of the roof and gull wing doors included channels which would take standard bolts or attachment rings for quick and secure fixing of accessories.

The side channels are often used for attaching recovery boards, sand ladders, and tools such as shovels and axes. On the roof, the same channels are present and these are intended for mounting a roof tent, roof rack, awning, or other accessories.

With a hard top range available, Rockalu launched two sizes of awning. These would mount to their hard tops, but also to other vehicles such as the VW Transporter T6. The terms bat wing and fox wing awnings are often used in the market, but Rockalu chose their own terminology: 270 and 360 degree awnings.

A 270 degree awning opens to both ends to create a large, semi-circular shelter or sun shade. This is as long as most larger vehicles when extended, and provides a significant amount of coverage. The 360 degree version also extends around the rear of a vehicle, to give a huge L-shaped coverage area. In both cases, Rockalu used lightweight alloy frames, high quality fabrics and also made available a side wall set which would allow the awning area to be enclosed. This makes a really large and useful sheltered or storage area, much bigger than is normally seen with regular straight awnings.

To round out the range, a modular storage solution for pickups was launched which features a fridge slide, load tray, and a modular storage box system which allows you to keep everything in your overland rig secured and easy to access.

With new products always in the pipeline, Rockalu are a fast growing European manufacturer and their range is stylish and innovative.
