Canopy case studies

Timber canopies

Fordingbridge timber canopies use ‘glued laminated’ timber (glulam). Glulam is an engineered wood product,  which is manufactured from layers of parallel timber laminations, giving it superior strength and design possibilities to other timber options.

Timber canopies are available in straight and curved shapes and in a variety of coloured stains to complement your surrounds; glulam combines durability with a modern aesthetic.
