Public Transport Canopies
Passenger transfer and protection structures for Airports, Railways, Bus Stops etc.
Protect waiting lift users
As part of the “Railways for All Strategy” which was launched in 2006, there was a need identified to give disabled customers access to all platforms where no other safe alternative means of access is available, therefore leading to the provision of new “User Friendly” footbridges, with obstacle-free lift access. Part of the brief is to include entrance canopies at the lift doors to protective waiting areas for customers during inclement weather.
Pedestrian entrance canopies
Entrance canopies or porches, not only can they serve as an architectural focal feature but they also give the practical benefits of providing protection from the weather whilst unlocking, queuing or waiting for access into the building.
As sites expand, facilities including car parking can become detached from the main building. We offer a range of purpose built walkway systems to enable the safe and dry transition between buildings and facilities.
We also provide canopies for the following industries:
