A glass canopy provides an attractive and practical feature to a building, usually outside entrance doors. The canopy will protect people entering the building, & help to keep rain or any bad weather from also entering. A glass canopy will allow more natural light through into the entrance area compared to a solid canopy.
Canopies that project from buildings are subject to wind and snow loads and it is therefore important to determine the correct strength of glass to be used. Our technical advisory service can provide calculated glass thicknesses for framed rectangles or corner bolted toughened glass constructions if provided with the snow load and design wind load for the location.
Glass canopies are a great way to modernise the exterior of a building. Canopies are often used as an office entrance but they are also can be used effectively on residential buildings.
