Beck Walkway Canopy

Beck Walkway Canopy

The Beck is a stylish walkway that fits in perfectly with architectural and modern buildings. It has a smooth, mono pitch design with a slight pitch angle to allow for water drainage though the integral guttering.

It is fixed to the building with contemporary stainless steel tie rods that are encased within aluminium tubes for added strength and durability. This canopy also benefits from trendy perforated stainless steel brackets beneath the roof bars.

With an unlimited length and a maximum projection of 1.5m from the wall, the Beck is the ideal walkway, entrance or stairway canopy for hospitals, schools, shops and leisure environments.

Roof Panels

The Beck walkway canopy is covered with solid polycarbonate roof panels that are 4mm thick and have a high resistance to impacts.

Fire Resistance - The clear polycarbonate roof panels that are supplied as standard meet the European fire standard EN 13501-1 B s1 d0 and the UK fire rating BS 476 Part 7 Class 1Y.

UV Coated – The polycarbonate panels are coated on both sides with a high UV protective covering. This protects those underneath from harmful UV rays and also prevents the panels from yellowing or losing their shine.

Light Transmittance – The roof panels let through high levels of light (depending on the colour chosen). The chart below shows the results when tested to the method DIN 5036:

Polycarbonate Colour Light Transmission %
Clear (Supplied as standard) 87%
Bronze 50%
Grey 55%
Green 73%
Please note: We do not have the results for embossed or opal polycarbonate.
