On what will be the most difficult of days, it goes without saying that anything that can be done for mourners that will make their attendance at chapel just a little bit more comfortable would be greatly appreciated by all.
Clovis Canopies supply porte-cochère / carriage porches, shelters, and walkway cover to business owners and operators in the funeral sector that provides all-around weather protection to mourners and floral tributes at the funeral and memorial services.
On arrival mourners and funeral directors exit their vehicles and then enter the chapel, this sensitive stage of the proceedings can be made a little easier under the cover of a porte-cochère / carriage porch. After the service, the mourners exit the chapel and move on to the flower garden where they will view the flowers and tributes, under shelter they would be in a relaxed environment whilst protected from the elements. From the flower garden, people can then move on to visit the memorial gardens, if they wish, where the pathways and viewing areas can have walkway covers allowing mourners to take their time whilst paying their respects.
As well as porte-cochères / carriage porches, shelters and walkway covers, Clovis can supply canopies for waiting and overflow areas if required. We have many solutions for a variety of scenarios, contact us today to see how we can help.
We also provide canopies for the following industries:

- Will I require planning permission?
We always advise that you call your local planning authority as there are no hard and fast rules. They will advise on whether you require planning permission for your proposed canopy. Although it differs from region to region canopies under 35m2 may not require permission but this can be affected by situations such as proximity to neighbours, listed building status, conservation areas etc. so it always best to check.
