The Stages of Installing a Canopy
Above is a video to show the different stages of a canopy installation to show how simple the process is and that is has next to no impact on everyday school life for teachers or students.
Stage 1 - Breakers are used to cut holes for the footings.
Stage 2 - Footers are filled with concrete which need to cure.
Stage 3 - The Installation team layout the canopy frame.
Stage 4 - The roof beams are assembled and secured.
Stage 5 - The frame is raised to fit the roof.
Stage 6 - The tensile membrane roof is attached to the frame with nylon rods.
Stage 7 - The roof is tensioned until its completely taut, like a drum skin.
Stage 8 - The roof is made completely watertight & integral gutter is checked.
Stage 9 - The aluminium legs are cut accordingly to the size of canopy required.
Stage 10 - The base plates are attached to the legs & drainage holes are made.
Stage 11 - The structure is walked into footings and levelled.
Stage 12 - The base plates are bolted into the ground securely
Stage 13 - The holes are filled with soft play or tarmac.
Stage 14 - A safety check is then carried out and the site is cleaned and tidied.
