Fordingbridge were approached by the principal contractor to design and build the 17m canopy to run alongside the classrooms at this busy school in Shelfield, Walsall.
Opting for a monopitch steel canopy, the 6m span provides significant covered space, enabling lessons to be held outside throughout the year. It also provides valuable shade, ensuring that the classrooms themselves do not overheat. The canopy has been finished in “signal blue” to complement the colour scheme of the school and match the existing metalwork. The addition of matching post protectors complete the project.
Fordingbridge metal canopies are always constructed using steel. This material provides guaranteed longevity and strength, thanks to expert craftsmanship from our West Sussex facility. The steelwork is then galvanized ensuring it will safely deliver protection for many years. Our canopy structures come with a 25 year guarantee as standard.
