Covered walkway at school in Kent (Birchington)
Posted on 18/01/2017
With a long lasting, robust but attractive covered walkway canopy installed, staff and students can now move between buildings without the great British weather ruining their day.
Project – Motiva Duo used as covered walkway at Saint Nicholas of Wade C of E School
Product – Motiva Linear Canopy
Requirement – Singing in the rain is a wonderful musical but not something that most people do when caught in the great British weather.
Getting from one place to another in a cloud burst can be a little dramatic. People running with books over their head, some leaving it until the last moment, hoping the rain will ‘pass’ (it’s Britain, rain doesn’t pass, it takes a lunch break)
The builder working on this scheme called in A&S Landscape to install a long lasting covered walkway canopy to make sure moving between the existing school and a new modular building didn’t require a rain dance.
Solution – Installing a Motiva Linear straight roof Canopy at 8600mm X 3500mm in a green steelwork (RAL6018) with opal roofing connected the buildings seamlessly. Including Alu-Tuff™ guttering and downpipes in matching Dura-coat™ colour meant the whole structure looks great, whilst post pads mean tiny heads on tiny adventures are safe from any accidents, tiny or otherwise.
Result – The result is no more dashing between buildings. With a long lasting, robust but attractive covered walkway canopy installed, staff and students can now move between buildings without the great British weather ruining their day.
