Duke Street Primary School

Lancashire County Council approached us to design manufacture and install a canopy solution to provide shelter for a yet to be installed ramp to provide access for all to the main school building and at the same time connect it under cover to another classroom block. The challenge was to ensure that the canopy had as few supporting columns as possible and not inhibiting the new pedestrian ramp while providing maximum protection from the elements.

The final design incorporated a wave style roof with the addition of a cantilever along one side.

Dimensions 8m wide x 12m long, roof glazed with Opal multiwall polycarbonate and framework with a polyester powder coated finish.

Installation was complete in 5 days from foundations by others.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Will our concerns over children and staff safety be addressed prior to installation?

We have been working within schools for many years. All contractors are Clovis approved and CRB checked. Full risk assessments are carried out prior to starting installation taking into consideration your requirements and safety fencing is erected wherever needed at no additional charge.

Are your canopies usable all year in all weathers?

Yes unlike some solutions that need to be taken down in the winter or during high winds our canopies are designed to be useable all year round. The cladding materials as well as providing shade are also waterproof so that they can be used during wet weather.

Do you use Polycarbonate, PETG, GRP or Acrylic for non fabric cladding?

At Clovis Canopies we use polycarbonate roofing as although slightly more expensive, we find it has a better combination of strength, impact resistance, sheet size and colour, fire / flame resistance and longevity of life than any of the other above mentioned cheaper materials.

How is the polycarbonate sheeting attached to the framework?

We use a two part glazing bar on our canopies with rubber gasket or cushions to attach the roof polycarbonate sheets as this allows for the expansion of the sheets as the weather heats up or cools down. The rubber gaskets as well as creating a watertight seal greatly reduce noise levels as the sheets expand and contract. We do not screw sheets directly to the framework as this can lead to the roofing sheets buckling and potentially causing leaks due to the possibility of screw heads popping off. In addition to this we never lap one sheet over the other as this can result in an algae build-up resulting in unsightly discoloured patches in the roof.
