Twinfix canopies installed at Liverpool Heart & Chest COVID-19 Testing Facility

When Liverpool’s leading specialist heart and chest hospital trust wanted to set-up a drive through COVID-19 testing facility, Twinfix were approached by Actua to provide a shelter solution within their client’s COVID 19 testing pick up points.

The proposal was to create a turning circle where vehicles could drive in and pick up their testing kit and drive out. There were complications however, as the area is also used for general hospital deliveries meaning the height of the canopy needed to facilitate taller vehicles such as lorries.

Twinfix designed two bespoke structures spanning a total of 82 sqm:
Section 1: Free standing duo-pitch canopy completely independent of the building·
Section 2: Wall mounted lean-to mono-pitch canopy with vertical glazed screen to side & front elevation.

Section 1 comprised of galvanised steel posts with upper aluminium sub-frame roof, whereas, the full structure of Section 2 was manufactured in aluminium. Both structures were fitted with Twinfix's non-fragile Multi-Link-Panel roof-glazing system, glazed with 25mm clear polycarbonate.

Joe Astley, Capital Projects Officer at LHCH commented: “The trust is very pleased with the services received. From a quick turnaround in manufacturing to a trouble free and speedy installation, Twinfix did a great job at LHCH.”
