Wall mounted canopy for York Racecourse

Wall mounted canopy for York Racecourse

Canopies UK supplied York Racecourse with a long-term entrance canopy solution for its stables.

York Racecourse is one of the leading racecourses in the world hosting many spectacular races.

York Racecourse required a canopy to do more than just simply provide shelter for people entering the stables, it needed to create a grand entrance way, provide a large area of coverage and complement the existing building.

Canopies UK provided a curved roofing system, the Olympus which they determined would instantly enhance the façade of the building.

Furthermore, it was possible to wall mount the system on brackets, enabling free-flowing footfall right up to the main stable entrance doors.

They ensured the canopy was in keeping with the rest of the venue by implementing their bespoke colour matching service to ensure it was exactly the same shade of green as the rest of the racecourse buildings.

“Installing a canopy with posts at the front was not an option in this instance, as they would have been an obstruction, particularly as we wanted to create an area with as much free-flowing space as possible” explains Vinny Gossan, Commercial Area Sales Manager at Canopies UK.
