Street Structures were recently approached by Speller Metcalfe and undertook the task of designing, manufacturing and installing a supported canopy to the Western Power Distribution offices in Swansea, Wales. The canopy we fitted consists of entirely galvanised, grade S235 mild steel painted RAL 7024 Gloss, with the main structure supported by 2 CHS posts, joining onto 2 parallel RHS arms, threaded through 2 more parallel RHS runners, forming a forward, slanted box frame which the glazing can comfortably sit atop. The glazing used is 9.5mm thick, satinised, thermally toughened safety glass, polished all round. The canopy’s angled design aids water runoff, crucial to the existing RWP we fixed the canopy to.
Works in Swansea have since concluded, following the successfull installation of the canopy unit, we look forward to working with Speller Metcalfe again in the near future.
