We also manufacture a range of architectural canopy structures for architectural purposes including entrance canopies and covered walkways

Cladding materials include polycarbonate, tensile PVC fabric, and sheet metal in barrel vault / curved profiles or pitched, fabricated using metal (steel, stainless, aluminium).

We can work from Architects designs or from our own extensive range of designs to create the perfect solution.

We design manufacture and install, a range of toughened laminated glass entrance canopies and walkways including frameless glass, bolted glass and patent glazed assemblies.

Architectural glass fittings include stainless steel spiders, bolts, washers and tie rods.

Support frameworks are either powder coated mild steel or suitably finished stainless steel.

Tensioned fabric membrane canopy structures use a simple flat sheet of coated waterproof and flame retardant shade fabric supported by a metal framework. These roof sheets are then secured into an aluminium cladding rail.

Fabric makes an excellent choice for permanently fixed canopy shelters and playground shade structures and the inclusion of gutters allows for efficient rainwater management.

We offer an ever expanding range of tensile fabric membrane structures including covered walkways and entrances.

316 stainless steel fittings are used to secure the membranes to the supporting frameworks.

Our freestanding, permanently fixed canopies are designed so that no other support is required.

By using structural steel and suitably designed concrete pad foundations our shelters can be supplied as free standing units, independent of any other building or standing alongside without imposing any loads on the existing buildings.

Some canopies, shelters or walkways will be required to be supported by an existing building wall.

Where this is the case, both the design of the canopy and the fabric and construction of the existing wall need to be considered due to the often under-appreciated additional loads placed on the existing building.

We take extreme weather conditions into consideration at the outset of each wall-mounted project and ensures that all shelters exceed required tolerances – making sure they stand up to the strongest gales and heaviest snow storms.

Buying from us gives you the peace of mind that your wall-mounted canopy has been properly designed, manufactured and installed.
