Prefabricated canopy & covered walkway systems from ISDA Business Partner Panel Built offer a way for school campuses to expand their usable areas into the outdoors! Creating these outdoor places, canopies can help schools provide a safer, more comfortable environment.
The primary function of the canopy system is to offer protection to the spaces and things below. For a school campus, walkways and bus loading zones will see a large amount of traffic throughout the day. Covering these zones with a canopy and/or covered walkway system reduces the precipitation, reducing ice build-up and potential accidents in the colder months. Plus, the students will not have to wait on a bus for an extended period while wet on rainy days.
Similarly, many schools employ small canopy systems at the entrance to their buildings and exterior elevators. Like on pathways, the canopy prevents harsh weather from accumulating at the opening of the school. This covering not only helps keep rain from coming in while the door is open but will likely reduce the amount of water carried in as well.
Although prefabricated, our metal canopy structures are designed 100% to customer specifications, providing practically limitless layout possibilities. With high flexibility and heavy-duty steel components, these systems are suitable for a wide range of harsh outdoor environments. Finally, the canopy designs can be adapted to meet state and local building codes, especially those requiring minimum snow and wind loads.
