Steve at Advanced Vehicle Rental contacted us in search for a valeting bay canopy to be installed at his site in Norwich. Steve wanted to provide his workers with protection from the elements as they’re outside washing vehicles all day long. Kappion’s free-standing valet bay canopy offered the perfect solution.
Soon after we received Steve’s enquiry, our project management team organised a suitable date for our surveyor to go down and conduct a site survey.
During the site visit, it was clear that this was going to be a straightforward installation. An existing concrete pad was already in place, making it easier when fixing the posts to surface. The ground level is pretty much flat, a large open work area and concrete pad already in situ. The sounds like an easy installed for the Kappion team! Our site visit was mainly spent going over the exact sizes required, which was determined by the largest vehicles that will be valeted such as large vans.
Steve confirmed the size of the canopy and we decided that have 2 curves would be the best option. Using our high-tech scanning equiptment, we took a scan of the area, which allows us to gather the exact measurements of the available space. These measurements allow us to create the perfect fit canopy. The production drawings were raised and signed off by Steve who chose to have the powder coated Jet Black (RAL 9005). As the valeting bay is in view of customers, Steve wanted his valeting bay to be hot dip galvanised and powder coated Jet Black to maintain aesthetics. We specified clear polycarbonate for the roof to allow as much light as possible to flood into the work area beneath the canopy.
Once installation began the canopy took shape very quickly and by the end of the first day, the framework was levelled, secured and bolted down. The second day was spent glazing the canopy roof with polycarbonate. Finally, the canopy was cleaned down and inspected by Steve who was ecstatic with the final result.
