An Introduction to Able Canopies


Covered Walkways

We can provide both free standing and wall mounted walkway systems in varying designs from contemporary curved styles to more traditional apex roofed structures, allowing you to choose the walkway to suit your area. All our standard free standing walkway systems can be tailor-made to suit your requirements. We can also fit side fills to your walkway to provide extra protection against the weather.

We can incorporate complex angles, turns and differing ground levels to follow the path you require - an example of this can be seen at Thundersley Primary School in Benfleet Essex.


We also offer a range of bespoke covered walkways where we can work with specialist companies to bring you designs built to your specifications.

What are the benefits of a Covered Walkway?
Covered walkways are a popular addition to schools, hospitals and care homes creating dry link ways between buildings for pupils, visitors or staff. Installing a covered walkway helps prevent mad dashes between buildings in the rain and slippery paths in the cold weather.

The addition of a walkway can also add an attractive new architectural feature to your site, and can be a great way to modernise or "spruce up" an area.
