Covered Walkways

We have an extensive range of quality canopies and tensioned fabric membrane structures often used to form covered walkways on school properties across the UK. All of our canopies are made to measure making them suitable for every application.

Many schools have benefitted from installing a walkway canopy proving a defined route and all-weather cover between classrooms and other school buildings. We have worked with colleges to provide covered walkways between campus buildings, primary schools to create dry access to mobile classrooms and have helped many other schools provide a covered link between areas to protect visitors, staff and pupils from the elements.

Walkway Canopies can help connect up spread out schools often extended with mobile classrooms or demountable units fostering a greater feeling of a single site as well as improving the health and wellbeing of those who use it every day. Whatever your requirement, whether you are looking for a straight roof or curved roof, wall-mounted or free-standing we can provide a canopy solution to meet your covered walkway needs.
