Canopies UK provided their Connekt canopy to increase weather protection at Interlink Express, Letchworth.
Interlink Express wanted a small canopy that projected from their existing warehouse to cover the tail end of the delivery lorries as they were loaded for dispatch.
Canopies UK’s modular system the Connekt was chosen for this project as it is cantilevered and has been proven at many warehousing/distribution facilities.
Their in-house structural engineer had to specially design the steelwork to span over the loading bay doors, this was done as a solid framework.
The posts either side of the door were then bolted down to the existing concrete slab after the load requirements were calculated, informing us that the existing concrete floor could be used as an anchor.
The canopy had to be installed above a large loading bay door, and allow clearance for the reversing lorries, taking into account the integral loading platform.
The height of the door was 6m and it could accommodate 2 lorries side by side which also meant the width of the canopy had to be at least 6m.
