Canvas, acrylic or aluminium prints

Apologies if this has been covered before but I'd appreciate some advice on this.

I've made a panorama of the view from the window of a friend's new conservatory and he would like it printed and hung in the conservatory. As this location is going to get very warm (sunny most of the day) I am unsure if a canvas print would stand this without fading/warping.

1. Am I worrying unnecessarily? Would an acrylic or aluminium print be better?

2. Following that, I'd appreciate recommendations for a good lab that can print up to 180 X 20cm, as there are no labs in my district (Dumfries, SW Scotland) AFAIK.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Loxley and DSCL both have good reputations - it would be worth contacting them both to get their opinion on the matter.

I was at the Photovision Roadshow in Edinburgh on Tuesday and the Loxley stand had some stunning aluminium prints, especially the glossy finish ones. Very pricey though.
