Open-Space Walkway Canopies


The applications are endless with their covered walkway canopies, providing a seamless, weather protected connection between external environments situated adjacent to buildings or across courtyards and open spaces. Whether you need to cover a walkway from one building to another or perhaps a covered queuing area, their structures will ensure staff, pupils, guests or visitors can remain dry.

Their tensile range through to the Instant Flexible Walkway are designed and manufactured in-house to provide an effortless addition to your operation. With minimal groundwork requirements, and hundreds of colour options, the Fordingbridge tensile walkways quickly provide optimal cover for queuing areas. As with all of their canopies, they are manufactured in-house and installed nationwide.

Fordingbridge are a specialist design and build contractor offering inspiring canopy, walkway and building solutions to all sectors, with over 50 years of experience and successful collaborations across a range of sectors, including: direct with clients, building contractors, architects, and local authorities. Fordingbridge believe that working with all levels of a project team is the key to getting the best project solution by offering a unique integrated approach that spans all aspects of a project, from concept to completed build.

Working to varying heights on site and with a combination of different angles, their walkways are designed to provide a fully covered area, and can serve as physical guides through stores, driving footfall to perhaps underutilised areas and avoiding retail deadspots.

To create beautiful long lasting timber walkway canopies, Fordingbridge use glued laminated timber, known as glulam, to give design flexibility with the additional advantage of superior strength. Glulam comes in a range of coloured stains, allowing your timber covered walkway to match your aesthetic requirements. Manufactured from layers of parallel timber, glulam is a highly durable engineered wood product. Fordingbridge's timber is FSC and PEFC certified; this guarantees the sustainability of the product by ensuring that planting rates are controlled to ensure growth exceeds harvested quantities.

Fordingbridge also create steel walkways canopies. Their steel walkway covers are available in maintenance-free galvanized finish or with a polyester powder coated finish in any RAL colour to match your branding. To give quality assurance, they manufacture all metal work at their CE approved workshop at their head office in Arundel, West Sussex.

Prefabricated offsite, the structures are delivered in kit form, allowing their installation team to promptly complete the erection with minimal disruption to the site or waste, and all their structures hold industry leading guarantees and are structurally calculated to ensure the canopies are fit for purpose.

The polycarbonate roof covering provides UV protection, allowing users to safely congregate under its shelter during busier services in the summer months, while not detracting from the surrounding landscapes. With its warm visual appeal and environmental properties, enhances customer offering, adds visual aesthetics to your operation and proves your commitment to sustainability.
