Long Walkway Canopy Installed in Penarth

Richard approached is with the requirement for a long walkway canopy/carport at the side of his property. The walkway canopy needed to be very long so that it would stretch the length of his property, all the way up to the garage. Since the canopy also needed to be narrow, a flat-packed aluminum canopy would not do the job.


The initial visit was extremely straightforward. This canopy design was fairly simple… all we had to do was ensure that the canopy would be narrow enough to fit the space and create a dry area all the way to Richards garage.

Additionally, we could position specific legs and downpipes to ensure that they would not be too obstructive, and make sure we could attach wall brackets to the property and posts to the opposing wall.

We could offer Richard a built-to-last solution as all of our carports come with full structural calculations. Richard, therefore, knew his long walkway canopy would be extremely safe since we provided the wind, snow and moment loading calculations.

The long walkway canopy drawings were signed off and Richard chose RAL No.7016 (Anthracite Grey) as the colour for his canopy to be powder coated in. This complimented Richards property really well, offering a modern stunning finish. Clear polycarbonate was chosen for the roof to allow light to flood underneath the canopy during the day, as it would cover a walkway area.

Once a manufactured date had been confirmed, the installation team arranged to do the groundworks and deliver the canopy in preparation for the installation.

Once we started the installation the canopy took shape quite quickly and by the end of the first day, the complete frame was bolted together and squared up. The second day involved glazing the canopy frame with the multiwall polycarbonate, checking/securing all fixings, tidying and wiping down. Our team installed Richards canopy in just two days!

In conclusion, it was evident when doing the final walk around with Richard that he was extremely happy with his long walkway canopy.
