Innovative new canopy design

11 November 2010

Fordingbridge prides itself in being able to create bespoke canopies to fit any project;

we recently received a client enquiry for which none of our standard solutions were appropriate so we set about creating a new design. The result was this innovative timber canopy based on the steel Scott cantilever.

This canopy combines the aesthetics of timber with the convenience of a cantilever structure. The cantilever structure can be used in a wide variety of situations but it is perfect where minimal posts are necessary.

The canopy uses a sustainably sourced glulaminated spruce frame with a galvanised steel brace and is clad in a hard wearing triple walled polycarbonate, with an expected life span on 15 years. This structure could also be clad in Opal 20 a fire retardant fabric with a life expectancy of 8 years.

This project was a prototype built at our factory site in Fontwell, the canopy will now be available as part of our standard or bespoke ranges and we look forward to constructing many more in the future.
