Walkway Awnings are best suited to coverage of the pathway leading from the road or pavement to the main front entrance of a hotel, apartment block or shopping mall.
The most common use for a Walkway Awning (or Approach Awning) would be to protect guests from the rain, given our usual British weather conditions. The custom shaped frame is constructed from our standard Dutch Blind extrusion, set on to lateral rails that are supported at regular intervals by simple posts which are attached securely to the ground.
Providing we have adequate ground fixing points, there is no limit to the projection that we can build our Walkway Awnings up to. We can pre-assemble modular sections in our factory prior to transportation to site, and then link these together and infill the missing panels on site after erection, giving the appearance of one single Awning.
A few years ago we installed a fixed Walkway Awning with an overall dimension of 6 meters wide, 12 meters projection, with a 1.5 meter radius curve height, on the north-east coast of Scotland, using just two Ford Transit vans for transportation to site. Constructed in four sections with final assembly in-situ, attached to thirteen decorative upright posts, and with beautiful signwriting applied in gold leaf to the dark forest green acrylic fabric, this Awning became so eyecatchingly iconic locally that an image of it was adopted as the hotel's official logo.
