Abberton Walkway Canopies

Abberton Walkway Canopies

The Abberton is a contemporary styled cantilevered walkway canopy, with perforated steel wall brackets to give an industrial appearance. The main frame is constructed from T5 grade aluminium and is covered with high impact resistant polycarbonate.

It benefits from an unlimited length (minimum of 1.4m) and has a projection of between 0.9m – 1.5m from the wall. The polycarbonate roof panels offer high protection from the sun, wind and rain and the panels will not discolour or fade over time due to the special UV coating that is applied during the manufacturing process.

The Abberton’s stylish design makes it ideal for many settings, particularly new builds, and healthcare or commercial buildings.
