Tamworth Entrance Canopy

Tamworth Entrance Canopy

The Tamworth is robust aluminium entrance canopy with a simple modern appearance. It is the most cost effective entrance canopy within our range, yet it does not compromise on quality. The frame is constructed from T5 grade aluminium which is naturally rust resistant and features high impact resistant solid polycarbonate roof panels.

Due to its minimalist design, this cantilevered entrance canopy is the ideal door shelter for new builds at schools, nurseries, shops, factories, and hospitals. It can also be a quick and low cost addition for existing builds, creating an attractive contrast to traditional styles and settings.
